New Coffees from the Pacific
Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste Fair Trade Certified are back. These are both smooth medium roast coffees. The Papua New Guinea is a little brighter with a more complex flavor profile while the Timor makes a milder brew. For those looking for something on the darker side, Big Island Blend has also returned, combining Papua New Guinea with darker roasted coffee.
Our full selection of coffees can be viewed on our coffee list.

You can now order one pound bags of whole bean roasted coffee through this web site. So far this is just a test run. If things go well we'll consider adding more features and products, but we're starting out with something simple. If you want something other than one pound bags of whole bean roasted coffee, orders can still be placed by phone.

Coffee: Our sourcing and roasting philosophy
Every coffee comes from somewhere. The place where the coffee is grown has a tremendous influence on how it tastes. Soil, temperature, and rainfall have quite a bit to do with how a coffee will ultimately taste. Variety selection, farming techniques, and the care taken in harvesting and processing also play a role. We try to find a variety of unique coffees, all different, but all delicious.
For each lot of coffee we buy, we evaluate several different roasts and try to find ways of roasting that coffee which bring out the best characteristics of that coffee. The result of this coffee first approach is that there is a great diversity of roasting styles among the coffees we offer.
