Our latest coffee shipment included some great new decaf coffees. Decaf Brazil Mogiana replaces our previous Decaf Brazil Sul de Minas. Decaf Ethiopia is back in stock with a sweet and citric medium roast. The latest Decaf Sumatra is one of the closest matches for our regular Sumatra Mandheling that we've had in some time.
Behind the Scenes
The flavor of a coffee depends on many details. One of these is how that coffee is roasted. Neal Wilson has created a series of videos that look at different approaches to coffee roasting and how these impact the flavor of a specific coffee. The latest episode features our Ethiopia Ardi. Another recent episode covered Burundi Butegana and Burundi Muramba.
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.
