  • Labor Day Restock

    0 comments / Posted on by David Tatum

    Happy Labor Day, friends! We just got a big restock as well as a couple new coffees so we thought we'd better take a second to share the joy!

     

    Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca El Injertal

    Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca El Injertal: We just can't get enough Huehuetenango here! This is one of our favorites so we had to get it back in. Smooth, creamy, slightly complex and full bodied. This crop has notes of sweet milk chocolate, cherry a touch of lemon and a distinctive caramel sweetness. What's not to love?!

     

    Tanzania Northern Peaberry: The African harvest continues to roll in and we just can't keep ourselves away from it! This Peaberry is very similar to the "Plus" we had recently, though it's more sweet and milk chocolatey rather than dark chocolatey. It's also got a touch of lemon and grapefruit with the same silky smooth texture and easy going body. 

     

    We also updated our Roasted Selections! We hope you're enjoying your (hopefully) long weekend and short work week! Share you coffee successes and joys this week by giving us a shout on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter!

  • Eclipsed by New Coffee Day!

    The solar eclipse and coffee have a lot in common! They both come in round shapes (in your mug), they are both black (or varying shades of brown) and they're both just magnificent to behold! Ok, maybe that was a stretch...in any case, hope you enjoyed the Solar Eclipse cause now it's time for new arrivals!

     

    Mexico Chiapas Tzeltal Tzotzil Organic: Please don't ask me to pronounce this one, I'll just make lots of "t" and "z" sounds until we both look confused. The good news is it's as good as it is difficult to pronounce! This tiny coop from Northern Chiapas produces only one container per year and we got some! It's drinkable and cuts milk and sugar well; think gourmet diner coffee. Full bodied and slightly complex with notes of cocoa powder and cherry.

     

    Kenya Peaberry Nyeri Boma Estate: Oftentimes Peaberry beans are more subtle and muted than their "normal" counterparts, but we were amazed at how intense this coffee was! It scored incredibly well in cupping with a stellar 86 (it's rare for a coffee to score above 90). It's balanced and slightly crisp with a silky smooth texture. Look for huge notes of ruby grapefruit, green grape and red delicious apples with a dry finish.

     

    HEY! Are you on social media?! We want to hear from you and be your bestest pal! We're currently encouraging a #boastyourroast campaign in an effort to encourage our friends to discuss they're favorite recipes and roasting methods. Just follow us, tag us and use #boastyourroast in your post to be featured on our page whether it's Facebook, Instagram or Twitter! Roast, brew and boast friends!

  • Tanzania - Not Just Peaberry!

    New Arrivals this week! 

     

    Tanzania Ruvuma AA: Most folks automatically think Peaberry when they think of Tanzanian coffee. Well, we're here to tell you there's so much more! This delicious AA bean is fruity and flavorful with a silky body, great balance and notes of black tea, peach and tangerine. Absolutely perfect for an afternoon iced coffee on a hot summer day.

    Guatemala Royal Select WP Decaf: We've had lots of requests to get this decaf back in, so here ya go! Think Guatemala Huehuetenango just without the caffeine. Rich, creamy and just ever so slightly complex. It's got tasty notes of dark chocolate, caramel and lemon.

    Hey! Are you boasting your roasting?! Follow us Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and share your favorite coffee roasting and brewing pictures! Tag us and we'll feature our favorites each week on our profiles.

  • Boast Your Roast!

    Boast Your Roast

    As a roaster, there's few things more satisfying than nailing the perfect roast. Except maybe when you brew it later and take the first sip! It's everything you were working towards and it tastes magical. Why not share that feeling with others? One of the things we love about the coffee community is its willingness to pass on knowledge and share in success with fellow coffee fiends!

    That's why we're starting the "Boast Your Roast" campaign on social media! We want to see your work and help you share it with your fellow coffee fanatics. What better way to share the joy of home roasting and home brewing? Whether you roast your own, or are simply proud of your brewing prowess and want to showcase your local roaster (or our roasted coffee...hint, hint...) or both, we want you to be a part of Boasting your Roast! The best part is you can use this opportunity to share your favorite roasting profile or brew recipe with others and learn new ones yourself. 

    Here's how it works:

    1. Follow us on your favorite social media outlet (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter). 

    2. Share a picture of your roast (or brew) and a description of the coffee and your roast profile or brew recipe to your favorite social media.

    3. Tag us and use the hashtag #boastyourroast in the description.

    4. We'll follow you back and every week or two we'll choose our favorite roast and/or recipe to post to ALL of our social media! 

    Be as simple or as complicated as you like with your description and pictures, just have fun with it! You don't have to be a full on coffee geek to participate, just love coffee as much as we do. 

    What do you think? Have ideas on how to make our campaign more fun or effective? We want to hear from you!
