  • 5 New Coffees Just In!

    0 comments / Posted on by David Tatum

    You read it right folks, we've got 5 new coffees just in! We've got something for everyone, from African to Central American to Decaf! Without further ado:

    Kenya Peaberry Plus: Don't let the bland name of this selection fool you, it's a hand selected blend of some of the best Peaberrys the Kenya Auction Lot has to offer! Subtle, easy going and exceptionally well balanced, expect this one to go down smooth and leave you wanting more. Look for tangy and sweet notes of grapefruit, orange and sweet lemon. 

    Ethiopia Yirgacheffe GERA Natural: We're always excited to find high grade natural processed Ethiopian coffees and we're pleased to share this one! Twisty, fruity, silky, complex and surprisingly full bodied. You'll love the big, juicy notes of strawberry and peach with just a touch of cocoa powder.

    Tanzania Peaberry Selian Estate: Another peaberry?! You betcha. Similar to the Kenya, this coffee is going to err on the subtle and slightly tangy side, but with a cleaner finish than the tannic Kenyan. Expect more of a crisp front end with a medium, almost tea-like body. Notes of cocoa powder, lemon and lime. 

    Nicaragua Alta de Jinotega Organic: This coffee is always a delight to have around because it's just such a hard working coffee! It takes so many roast levels well, it blends well and it stands up great all on it's own. Perfect for a warm, full bodied morning cup as well as a strong afternoon pick me up. Creamy, balanced and buttery with a nutty finish, you'll find notes of milk chocolate, caramel and almond.

    Guatemala Royal Select Water Process Decaf: Think Huehuetenango in decaf form. Rich, slightly complex and full bodied. If you're looking for your Guatemala fix and can't take the caffeine, you're going to love this coffee! Familiar notes of dark chocolate, caramel and mild lemon abound.

  • Ethiopian Fully Washed just in (it's Organic too!)

    0 comments / Posted on by David Tatum

    Hey friends! It's been a while (ok longer than we'd like to admit) since we got in a fully Washed Ethiopian coffee. The time has finally come! Several other coffees have come in recently as well so I'll try to catch everyone up on our new arrivals:

     

    Ethiopia Sidamo Telamo Washed Organic: As promised! Remember that washed Ethiopian coffees are very different from their natural processed counterparts. This one is silky, very balanced and light. The front end is crisp and the finish is refreshing, perfect for iced coffee now that the weather is warming. Look for notes of sweet lemon, raspberry and honey.

     

    Honduras Nueva Esperanza Organic: Honduran coffees are finally beginning to arrive so expect more to come! This early offering is easy going and well rounded. A creamy body and smooth front end give way to a clean finish. Look for notes of milk chocolate, almond and lemon.

     

    Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca el Injertal: Our first Huehue of the season! One of our favorites in recent years, this estate continues to impress. Slight complexity and rich body along with moderate acidity and a long finish make this one a fan favorite. This year's crop has notes of milk chocolate, white sugar, pear and caramel. Mmmmm sweet!

  • 2 New Arrivals from Africa

    Hey friends! That's right, we got in a restock as well as two brand new arrivals from Africa!

     

    Uganda Bukonzo Organic: This coffee has almost as much in common with Indonesian coffee as it does with African! Rich, buttery body with a moderate to low acidity and slight complexity of flavors, you could almost imagine this coffee being from Bali or Sulawesi. The African influence can be seen in the slightly winey finish. Look for notes of dark chocolate, black pepper and raisin. 

     

    Rwanda Misozi Abakundakawa Organic: Abakundakawa means "those who love coffee" so you know this one's going to be good. We would compare this one to a fully washed Ethiopian coffee: bright, crisp and light. Delicate with a clean finish, look for notes of pink grapefruit, honey, peach and lime zest.

  • Tanzania Peaberry is back!

    0 comments / Posted on by David Tatum

    That's right folks, it's finally back! We're even more excited because this time, it's a single estate too!

     

    Tanzania Peaberry Kuza Tudley Estate: The Kuza Tudley estate sits near the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro right on the border with Kenya. You can definitely taste they similarities between the two origins, though with a decidedly less tannic profile. Either way, fans of either origins won't want to miss this! This peaberry is crisp, balanced and silky smooth. Look for notes of lime, honey and clementine.

  • 3 New Arrivals

    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 Rantakarua Organic

    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

    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!
