    Happy Thanksgiving to our coffee roasting and drinking friends! Here at The Captain's Coffee, we have many things to be thankful for, but above all else, we're thankful for you! We sincerely hope you have a joyous and wonderful Thanksgiving.

    Before we close up shop to go spend time with our families, we wanted to let you know that we've got two new coffees in and remind you of our Black Friday through Cyber Monday deals!

    East Timor beach

    East Timor Organic Fair Trade: While East Timor enjoys Independence as it's own country, we classify it as an "Indonesian" coffee since it is grown in the same region of the world and shares many similar attributes. However it stands on its own mostly due to being fully washed instead of wet-hulled like most Indonesian coffees. This allows it to be a bit more crisp and balanced, while still having tons of body and flavor. Fans of fully and semi washed coffee alike will love this one!

    Sumatra Mandheling Grade 1: This is the real deal, the highest grade Sumatra Mandheling available. It's an indispensable classic processed in the typical wet-hulled fashion Sumatran coffee is famous for, resulting in smokey, spicy complexity, low acidity and a syrupy body. Look for notes of baker's chocolate, pipe tobacco, cedar and a hint of black pepper. Perfect for West Coast and Hybrid espresso blends!

    Don't forget to check out our post-Thanksgiving deals running Black Friday through Cyber Monday to get your Holiday shopping started off right without all the pesky lines! We'll be offering free shipping on all orders, $50 off Gene Cafes and 2 extra pounds of free coffee with every roaster sold!
