New Coffees Now Available

New coffees have recently come in and while some of these are direct replacements for recently sold out lots, two of these are from origins we haven't carried recently and we're roasting both of these in two different ways. Sweetness is the key word for all of these new coffees available in store and online now.

First up is a new Mexico Pluma. This is a fully washed, sun dried coffee from San Agustin Loxicha, Oaxaca. As a medium roast the coffee is bright and sweet. We're also making a dark roast which tones down the acidity a bit for a richer brew that still maintains a nice sweetness.

Next is a new Limited Edition coffee. We only have a very small amount of Bolivia San Lorenzo Yulissa Chambi Natural Red Catuai available and with two roasts using this coffee, expect this one to sell out fast. This coffee makes a smooth, full bodied brew that's easy to drink. As a medium roast the coffee has an interesting honeydew flavor prominently featured in the aftertaste. While still present in the dark roast, that attribute is significantly less intense while still maintaining good sweetness and a heavier body.

Update: We've roasted the last of our supply of this Bolivian coffee and as such this is no longer available for purchase online. A small amount may still be available in store for local customers.

Now Selling Online!

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.
