Howdy, friends! We hope everyone is having a great 2019 so far! We'll keep it short and sweet today, we've got three new arrivals including a brand spanking new Kenya AA:
Kenya AA Nzaini Co-op: MMM-mmm it's been a minute since we had a Kenya AA around and are we excited about this one! More on the gentle side with less in-your-face winey-ness, it's exceptionally balanced and silky. Look for a bright front end with subtle sweetness and a dry finish. Notes of peach, grapefruit, hibiscus and raspberry.
Sulawesi Rantekarua Estate Organic: A fan favorite from last year, this year's crop is just as dynamite. Rich and syrupy with characteristically low acidity. It's great for dark roasting as the high altitude growth makes for a very dense and hardy bean. Look for notes of butterscotch, molasses and cocoa powder with a pinch of cedar.
Brazil Nossa Senhora de Fatima Organic: This coffee is a rarity in a sea of mediocre Brazilian offerings. Smooth and buttery with a pleasant walnutty finish, it's also got fairly low acidity! Expect notes of brown sugar, cherry and caramel. Keep in mind, this is a lower altitude coffee than others so go low and slow with the roasting!
We're a little late to the party but, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here's hoping your 2019 is wonderful, exciting and filled with amazing coffee! To help do our part, here's 2 brand spanking new coffees we're happy to share:
Colombia Huila Naranjales Estate: Named for the orange trees also grown on the estate, this coffee is a knockout! Full bodied and creamy with a slightly crisp front end, everyone will love this one. Look for notes of brown sugar, red apple and vanilla.
Burundi A Kayanza Matraco: This delightful coffee comes from a 4 time cup of excellence washing station and you can tell right away it's got pedigree! Crisp and very balanced with gentle sweetness and a silky body, this one is for folks who like they're coffee black (trust us, you won't miss the cream and sugar). Look for notes of lime zest, black tea, nectarine and sugar cane.
You read that right folks! For a very limited time, we've got Jamaica Blue Mountain Clydesdale in stock just in time for the holidays!
Jamaica Blue Mountain Clydesdale: The Clydesdale estate is one of the oldest coffee producers in the Blue Mountain region of Jamaica. Often imitated, never duplicated, this is stuff of legends. The best of island coffee is extremely balanced, smooth and subtle. Don't expect some wacky natural processed Ethiopia or super bold and spicy Sumatra, this coffee is gentle. Roast it light and drink it black! This year's harvest came down significantly in price (coffee prices swing wildly, this isn't a reflection on quality) so we're passing the savings on to you! We've got an extremely limited stock and won't be getting more for a long time, get it while it's hot and share with friends and family during the holidays!

Hi Friends! We're preparing ourselves for the holiday season (yes, we can't believe it's almost here either) and grabbing some fresh varietals to keep things...fresh! Without further ado...
Guatemala Huehuetenango Coyequal Organic: Whew, we thought all the Huehuetenango's from this season were gone, but we snagged a late bloomer! This fantastic organic selection comes from the tiny village of El Coyequal which is situated in the heart of Huehuetenango. Slightly complex, rich and creamy with a surprising amount of sweetness, look for notes of cherry, orange and peach.
Nicaragua San Juan del Rio Coco Organic: Another surprising late season find! This delicious selection is very characteristic of great Nicaraguan coffee. Versatile yet singular, it works well with others while standing on it's own merits. Creamy, rich body gives way to a balanced profile with notes of cocoa powder and almond.
