The wait is over folks! Two of our most popular coffees, Bali Blue Moon Organic and Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Natural, are finally in! See the details below and expect to see more delicious Indonesian harvests in the near future.
Bali Blue Moon Organic: Known as the "Jewel of Indonesia" Bali produces some amazing coffee. Processed using the wet-hull method popular in Indonesia, it's very similar to it's neighbor, Sumatra, but with more of a refined finish and a bit less spicy bite. Syrupy and rich, look for notes of baker's chocolate, vanilla and a hint of cedar.
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Idido Natural: Fresh harvests of Yirgacheffe are finally hitting the states and just like last year, the Idido coop was the first to arrive. Lucky for us, it's also an amazing coffee! Off all the natural processed Yirgacheffes that come through, this coffee continues to be the most "accessible" one. Silky to creamy body with notes of blackberry, blueberry and cocoa, it's one the more balanced side for a natural processed coffee.
Can't be bothered roasting these fine specimens up? Don't worry, we can take the legwork out for you! Both new coffees are available pre-roasted fresh from our in house Ambex roaster.
Howdy friends and Happy Labor Day! We've just got a huge restock in with some old favorites as well as something new:
Nicaragua Alta de Jinotega: This delightful and versatile coffee comes from the highest (Alta) area of the Jinotega Mountains of Nicaragua. Well balanced with a buttery body, it's got warm notes of milk chocolate, almond and a touch of caramel. A decadent single origin and a perfect blender, it also takes many roast levels well.
Sumatra Mandheling Grade 1: From the heights of the famous Gayo Mountain comes this syrupy and bold treat. Known for its low acidity and huge body, this classic coffee has big notes of baker's chocolate, cedar with a spicy bite. It takes dark roasts like a champ and makes for a perfect addition in a smokey West Coast style espresso.
Guatemala Huehuetenango Huixoc: This coffee farm is literally next door to the El Injertal farm! Boasting most of the same characteristics including slight complexity and a rich, creamy body, this coffee is a superb example of the best Huehuetenango has to offer. Look for notes of dark chocolate, lemon and a hint of orange.
Honduras Manos de Mujer Organic: This is a coffee we always look forward to every year! Hand selected from the best the COMSA cooperative has to offer, this coffee is well balanced and surprisingly full bodied for a Honduran coffee. Look for sweet notes of honey, tangerine and dark chocolate.
All these coffees will also be featured on our roasted coffee selections! Also, please allow extra time on shipping for orders placed this weekend due to the Holiday. Have a wonderful Labor Day everyone!
Howdy friends! Fresh harvests from East Africa are beginning to hit the states and we were fortunate to snag an exceptional Kenya AA from the Nairobi Auction as well as a delightful Colombia Tolima!
Kenya AA Kiruga Estate: This single estate gem is a connoisseur's dream! It's got a bit less of that "winey" taste that can turn some folks off which still retaining a dry and slightly tannic finish. Crisp, fresh lime on the front end gives way to exceptionally balanced notes of honey and grapefruit with a full, silky body throughout.
Colombia Tolima Organic: We've been focusing on the Sierra Nevada region lately and thought we'd switch things up so we don't miss some great Tolima! A bit more subtle yet sweeter than other Colombian coffees, this one still retains great body and a creamy texture. Look for well balanced notes of vanilla, milk chocolate and orange.
For those who've been eagerly awaiting fresh crops from Indonesia, keep your eyes peeled! We hope to see more Bali, Sumatra, Sulawesi and even Flores in the next month!
Hey friends! We just got in two new Organic coffees and we can't wait for you to try them!
Sumatra Aceh Buana Mandiri Organic: Sumatra is back and better than ever! From the Aceh region (commonly grouped into the Mandheling trade name) comes a wet-hulled extravaganza. It's got tons of rich, syrupy body coupled with a complex profile and a smokey, lingering finish. Expect notes of baker's chocolate, cedar and a touch of black pepper.
Ethiopia Sidamo Natural Organic: We're taking a detour from our usual Yirgacheffe rotation to bring in an often overlooked region of Ethiopia: Sidamo. It's got decidedly more body and creamier texture than it's Yirg brother with all the same funky twistiness of a Natural process! Look for notes of juicy strawberry and a hint of cocoa.

Nicaragua San Juan del Rio Coco Organic: It's been a few years since we've had this coffee and we're pleased to get it back. Full bodied and creamy, it's a versatile blender as well as being dynamite as a single origin. It'll take a variety of roast levels and around medium you're sure to note lots of dark chocolate with a nutty, almond finish.
Honduras Royal Reserva Honey Organic: Finally a honey processed coffee! Honey processing is a middle ground between natural process and fully washed, resulting in what some consider to be the best of both worlds. Slightly twisty yet surprisingly balanced with a medium to full body. Look for big notes of ripe cherry, orange and cocoa.
El Salvador La Esperanza: Another refreshing, crisp coffee perfect for summer iced coffee! It's balanced and flavorful with notes of orange, caramel and lemon. Expect a medium body and silky texture, especially roasted right at Full City.
