    Roasted Coffee

    It's been a long time coming, but The Captain's Coffee will finally be offering Roasted Coffee! All the coffee we sell is small batch, artisan roasted on our Ambex roaster and will is roasted to order. That means, the coffee we ship has been roasted within 24 hours of your order, and we wouldn't have it any other way. 

    Roasted Coffee Bag

    We spent a lot of time thinking about how we were going to package our roasted coffee and we've decided to go with what we believe is a simple and elegant solution. So many Roasteries have fancy packaging with expensive printing and artwork and they raise their coffee prices in order to offset this. We don't want you to pay for packaging, we want to offer you simply great coffee at a great price. That's why we're going to keep things simple and ship our coffee in the same valve bags we offer here on our site with nothing but a stamp and a straightforward label so you know exactly what you're getting and what you're paying for. 

    We want to keep our roasted coffee offerings limited to help insure absolute freshness, so we'll frequently rotate what we're roasting. We'll always have our Espresso Blend and House Blend available. In addition, we'll always offer a dark roast, a medium roast and a light roast. So if you aren't interested in what's available right now, check back each week as we rotate offerings!

    If you've been a customer with The Captain's Coffee for a while (thank you!), you may be asking yourself: "Why is TCC selling roasted coffee when I want to roast my own?" Allow me to answer that question with several others! Have you ever wanted to compare your coffee to ours? Now you can! Do you have friends and family constantly bugging you for your roasted coffee and can't keep up with the demand? Send them our way! Too busy to roast and just need some great coffee mailed straight to your door? We got ya covered! Our goal isn't to take home coffee roasting away from you or steal your thunder. We hope that offering roasted coffee will be a door to getting current roasters more excited about their hobby and that we'll attract new coffee geeks to our site that we can convert into home roasters! 

    We have one goal in mind: to share our love of coffee and home coffee roasting and in turn get others excited about home roasting too!

    For a limited time we'll be selling 16oz bags of roasted coffee for the price of 12oz bags! Give our roasted coffee a try and get 25% more coffee for free!

  • Bali is Back!

    Bali Blue Moon Organic

    Bali Blue Moon Organic is back and better than ever! From the "Hidden Jewel of Indonesia", this coffee has tons of big, full body and a rich, syrupy texture. It's low acidity but slightly crisp, which sets it apart from many other Indonesian coffees. We found big flavors of milk chocolate and notes of vanilla and cinnamon.

  • New Coffee Extravaganza!

    Honduras Finca Mi Esperanza

    Wow, what a new coffee day do we have for you today! Seven, that's right SEVEN new coffees in stock this week! There's something for everyone, from light and crisp to bold and syrupy and even a brand new organic decaf. We made sure to find the best new coffees from every region and we've got them all covered, including new crops from some of our old favorites. We'll list them in alphabetical order so you can be sure we're not biased (we love them all anyway!).

    Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Aricha Washed: I know, I know, we always focus on Natural Processed Ethiopian coffees and ignore the washed, well not this time! This amazing coffee is gentle and mellow, with a surprising body and less acidity than we expected. It's balanced and refreshing with notes of melon, peach, mild lemon and lavender. 

    Honduras Finca Mi Esperanza Microlot Organic: There is so much to say about this incredible offering. It's a microlot, so you know it's been treated with the utmost care. It's honey processed so you know it's going to be sweet and fruity with low acidity. It's organic, so you know you can feel good about it's environmental impact. Subtle complexity and a clean finish with big notes of orange, cherry and cinnamon. 

    Honduras Organic Royal Select Water Decaf: Over the years, decafs with the Royal Select Water Decaf label have been the only decafs we've gotten excited about and this organic Honduran is no exception. Creamy, balanced and milk chocolate sweet with a clean finish and none of that nasty decaf flavor. Perfect for an after dinner coffee that is sure to please anyone.

    Mexico Huatusco El Santo: It's been a while since we've been so impressed by a coffee from Mexico, but this one blew us away. It's medium bodied and creamy with big sweet flavors of apricot, red apple and honey. Just an absolutely delightful coffee, no sugar needed!

    Peru Sol y Cafe Organic Fair Trade: This is a new crop from what has been one of our favorite coops in recent years. We've always loved how easy drinking this coffee is and it's sure to please your crowd. It's smooth and balanced with notes of mandarin, peach and caramel. Great any time of day and a wonderful blender to add sweet brightness without taking away from the rest of the blend.

    Sulawesi Toraja Sapan-Minanga: Another new crop that we couldn't wait to get back in. This coffee is a favorite around our shop and a consistent winner. This year's crop brings no surprises and you'll still find it's full of big, rich, syrupy body and complex notes of cocoa powder, licorice and cedar. We like to say it's a really great Sumatran without the earthy bite. Think sophisticated and distinctive rather than raw and earthy.

    Sumatra Takengon Organic Fair Trade: Of course we had to balance Sulawesi with a classic Sumatra! It's got the same rich, syrupy body with complex notes of baker's chocolate, pipe tobacco, spice and vanilla. Not for the faint of heart! Think of this as Sulawesi's raw, edgy pal. This is coffee with attitude!

  • The Kenya Coffee Shuffle

    0 comments / Posted on by David Tatum

    New coffee day is all about the restock this week. We got in more Ethiopia Konga Natural, Guatemala Huehuetenango Huixoc, and Decaf Colombia. But the big news is a little dance we like to call the Kenya Coffee Shuffle:

    Kenya Coffee Bag

    Kenya AA Kianjiru Auction Lot: The last Kenya AA we had in was quite possibly the best we've had this season. How do you top that? Well, we decided not to try and hit the other end of the AA spectrum. We're always talking about the winey, tannic character of great Kenyan coffee, so this is the best way to explain the difference. If the Kenya AA Ichamara was a deep, dry red wine, the Kenya AA Kianjiru is a sweet, dry, crisp white wine. We love them both for different reasons, so kick your shoes off, do the shuffle and try another amazing Kenya AA!
