1/5/19 - Daterra
Sweet Blue now available. We've replaced "Full
Bloom", which is also from the Daterra collection, with
this one as Sweet Blue has a much broader "Sweet Spot"
when roasting - that is, it retains very nice characteristics
from light to dark roasts, whereas Full Bloom was difficult
to nail down. It is not as uniform looking as it's cousin
"Sweet Yellow", but is that what coffee is about?
Both are quite different coffees, as the cultivars are different
(at certain ripening stages, one cherry is blue the other
yellow). If you're making a choice for espresso, Blue is the
probably the way to go. For all other brewing methods, it
is a matter of preference; both are unique.
12/26/18 - We're getting in some Sweet
Blue from Daterra Farms, Brazil. It will be here
around the middle of next week.
12/25/18 - Merry Christmas! Newly posted
green coffees include: Brazil
Costa Rica El Conquistador.
12/10/18 - Just in from India - Monsooned
Malabar Grade AA from Josuma Coffee Importers.
This is simply the very best monsooned coffee available on
the market. "Monsooned" coffees are beans that are
artificially aged in raised drying beds with warm, moist monsoon
winds blowing over them for just the right period of time.
They are pale looking and very large in comparison with other
green coffee beans. Typically, they are used as a blend component
for espresso blends as they are very low in acidity and add
copious amounts of sweetness and crema to espresso. For those
that have sensitive tummies to caffeinated coffees but like
to drink them anyway, this is a good choice of beans.
12/6/18 - Out of Brazil Sweet Yellow until
later next week.
11/13/18 - Both Brazil Daterras (Sweet Yellow
and Full Bloom) are out for now. We're hoping to get a good
supply back in this month sometime.
11/4/18 - New coffees now available from
Ethiopia: a very nice natural processed Sidamo, and From Yirgacheffe,
Valley". Valic is still working on getting the San
Jose Poaquil cupped and uploaded to our offering sheet.
10/26/18 - Arriving next week: Two Ethiopians,
one a natural processed Sidamo (Guji) and Yirgacheffe"Misty
Valley". The Misty Valley will knock both your socks
Also from Guatemala, San Jose Poaquil (from the Chimaltenango
region). This is a really nice one to try out.
10/16/18 - New coffees due to arrive around end of
the month. They include an incredible Ethiopian.
We're also bringing back a popular coffee from Brazil - Daterra
Sweet Blue. Sweet Blue has been hard to find in our neck of
the woods so stay tuned.
9/3/18 - Labor Day Surprise! - Rwanda
Kotibakabo just made available on our green coffee
offering page. We were fortunate to snag a few big bags of
this sweet, light citrusy coffee. It has a very buttery body
when roasted to a medium level. Guatemala
La Voz from Atitlan has also been added. Sweet
with lots of citrus notes.
9/1/18 - Ethiopia
Konga is now available. This is an amazing heirloom
coffee that will knock your socks off!
8/28/18 - Inbound new green coffees include:
Next, La Voz Atitlan from Guatemala; an intensely sweet,
Both should be available this coming weekend.
8/11/18 - An old favorite is back - Papua
New Guinea "Mile High". Grown at an
altitude of "a mile high", this is one of the larger
co-op coffees grown on the Eastern Highlands of PNG.
We also have a new Kenyan in that will be posted soon.
7/4/18 - Happy July 4th! Harrar and El Salvador Finca
Malacara, both organic coffees, have been posted
on the green coffee offering page - Valic
6/26/18 Tanzania Tarime - just added to
help round out our African coffee selection. This is a nice,
mellow bean that makes for an enjoyable cup.
Harrar and El Salvador are still in the pipe and should be
added to our offering sheet by this weekend.
6/19/18 - Yirgacheffe Wenago and Burundi -
all gone for now. We're expecting a Harrar from Ethiopia in
a couple of weeks that has similar berry-like qualities as
the Wenago. Also incoming is an awesome coffee from El Salvador.
5/15/16 - Just in - A New Crop Sumatra Decaf. Decaffeinated
using Swiss Water Process. This coffee has some really
nice body to it.
Also in but not posted yet, a new Kenyan coffee. Should be
up as soon as Valic gets to it.
4/12/18 - Just in from Uganda - Uganda Bugisu Sipi.
A flavorful, powerful bean. When we cupped this we
were surprised at the clarity in the cup. Distinct coffee
blossom and stone fruit (plum, peaches, etc.) flavors followed
by a surprisingly pleasant, smooth finish. We have yet another
Bugisu that came in with this one (Sipi) and will get it posted
4/3/18 - Finally - Brazil
Sitio Maranhao Honey is posted (thanks Valic).
This a very well processed "honey prep" coffee in
which the sweetness of the coffee cherry pulp is transferred
to the seed (bean) while allowing it to dry naturally on raised
drying beds. It is a micro-lot coffee of limited availability.
We hope to be able to keep some around for a while, but if
you like Brazil coffees, this one cups really nice. Well balanced,
sweet, and complex best define it.
Coming up next - Two distinct African coffees from Uganda:
Sipi Falls AA and Bugisu AA. Should be available by this weekend.
3/25/18 - Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Wenago now available.
The Wenago is one of those high intensity, berry-like
coffees that we're fortunate to get in from time to time.
It is a dry-processed coffee, so get it while it's fresh.
We keep it sealed up in grain-pro bags, but still, the Arid
climate here in Arizona affects this type of coffee more than
Valic's still getting caught up as there are several other
arrivals STILL not posted. On top of that, we just learned
some really nice Ugandan coffees have arrived in town - straight
from the country. More on that soon...
3/22/18 - Mexico
Chiapas Onix - a nice High Grown, organic from
Southern Mexico is now available. We have several other amazing
coffees that still need to be added... a coffee from Tanzania
- From Brazil, "Sitio Maranhao Honey", and an exceptional
Yirgacheffe chock full of berry notes. All should become available
over the next few days.
Tablon 2 - gone. We may or may not get more (we're trying).
3/14/18 - Guatemala Finca El Milagro, from
the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala is now available. This
is a higher-end Guatemalan grown by the Villatoro family.
If you like chocolatey notes, this is it. Stay tuned for more
arrivals from Africa and Indonesia.
2/29/18 - Mexico "Tablon 2" added
to our green offering page. This is a higher-end Mexican coffee
from the Chiapas area.
We're excited about new arrivals due in late next week: A
rare triple-picked Sumatran Longberry, a nice Tanzanian coffee,
and Yirgacheffe "Wenago" - a combination of strawberry,
raspberry, and blueberry going on with this one. Also a new
Brazil - more on that later. These coffees should be available
by the 2nd week of March.
1/31/18 - Just in: Sumatra Reje Gayo - an
amazing coffee bean from the Nagro Aceh Darusalam region of
Indonesia. Great for espresso and pour-over with thick, syrupy
No Sweet Blue yet. Our Brazil importer informed us that they
are in process of shifting their Daterra Collection of Brazils
around the country to different locations. Hopefully we'll
be able to get some in February sometime.
1/21/18 - New shipping option for up to 6 pounds.
For an 8$ flat rate through U.S. Post Office, you can get
up to 6 lbs green coffee shipped anywhere in the country.
Note that due to limitations in setting up this option, it
is actually "up to 6 pounds total" on the order;
so it actually includes anything (bags, filters, etc.). This
is a nice option for those that only want to order a few pounds
at a time.
1/20/17 - Out of El Salvador Cayetano. Incoming
(in a week or two) includes Daterra Farms Sweet Blue, some
really nice Sumatran Gayo......others?
12/13/18 - Additional shipping option now available.
Up to 32 lbs green coffee can now be shipped via
U.S. Post Office for a maximum cost of $34. We've found this
to be a considerably less expensive and faster than other
shipping methods for locations far from Arizona; up to $15
less for a 32 lb order.
12/9/17 - Finally! Rwanda Bumbogo is up
and available. Also, Guatemala
. "Huey" is a nice change from Antiguas and
Cobans. It is grown in a slightly different type of volcanic
soil that renders it unique from other Guatemalans.
Papua New Guinea Sigri Peaberry now available.
We used to have this coffee several years ago and are pretty
happy to have it back.
The Rwanda's in, but Valic hasn't gotten around to posting
it. Should be up soon.
11/19/17 Rwanda Bumbogo is on the way! Should
be available later this week, assuming Valic puts it up on
