3/28/20 - Just in - Sumatra
Horas Tano Batak has just been added to
our offering sheet.
This is a Lintong varietal from the Lake Toba region
3/21/20 - We are currently open during
the pandemic and are operating "business as usual".
Local pick-ups at our coffee house in Downtown Mesa
are also still available, however it is "grab-and-go",
meaning the lobby and outside patio are closed for seating.
3/18/20 - From Ethiopia - Sidamo "Wottona
Bultuma". This is a washed coffee
with elegant flavor and incredibly nice body.
2/29/20 - India
Myore Nuggets - From Badnekhan Estate, added
to our offering line-up. A nice Sidamo from Ethiopia
is coming next.
2/14/20 - Brazil
Daterra Farms Sweet Yellow and Sweet
Blue are back in stock. The
prices for these two coffees have increased, as they
have dramatically gone up for us also. If we can source
them at a better price in the future, we'll reduce them
back down accordingly.
Monsooned Malabar Grade Super AA is back
in stock. We also just recieved some Mysore Nuggets
from a well-respeced estate in India. A couple of Ethiopians
will added to our offering list just as soon as Valic
gets around to it.
2/6/20 - We've run low (out) on a
few coffees that we normally stock - Monsooned Malabar,
Sweet Blue and Yellow, however these are expected to
be back in full swing next week around 2/7.
We also happy to announce the upcoming arrival of an
estate coffee from the Mysore region of India.
2/2/20 - Ethiopia
Yirgacheffe "Aricha" has been
posted. This is our current favorite around the shop
and we don't expect it to be around very long.
1/27/20 - Just in - Guatemala
Huehuetenango Palmira - this is from a
family owned farm known for it's quality and consistency.
Coming soon (next month) - an Indian coffee from the
Mysore region of India. It's been awhile since we stocked
Indian coffees other than Monsooned Malabar and maybe
a robusta here and there. We're hoping to increase our
varieties from this coffee producing region.
12/22/19 - La Minita Tarrazu is out until March.
In the meantime, La Pradera will be filling in. La Pradera
is very similar as it is part of the La Minita farm;
it is actually just down the road and uses the same
mill for processing.
11/20/19 - From Costa Rica -
Hacienda La Pradera Tarrazu. In true Costa
Rican fashion, these beans are impeccably processed.
The beans are large (18 screen), fresh, and make for
an awesome cup of coffee. Maple and Chocolatey were
the first sensations to the palate during our technical
11/10/19 - Colombia
Ibagué Tolima just added to our green coffee
offering page. This is a nice excelso from the capital
of Tolima. We were fortunate to get our hands on some
of this as the grower has a small farm that produces
only several hundred bags per harvest (this is considered
more of a micro-microlot). Fully washed and processed
9/21/19 - Nicaragua
El Recreo Pacamara Honey Prep has been added
to our offering list. This microlot coffee is a good example
of how properly processed honey-preparation should taste.
It is typical for the beans to have an uneven, almost reddish
tint to quite a few of them. This should not be interpreted
as being an inferior quality; rather this is an indication
that the beans were held to just the right moment during a
truncated fermentation period. It takes great skill -and some
luck, to properly process beans like this. Although they are
"Pacamara", these beans are not so huge as typical
Pacamaras are. Rather they are more-or-less typical of other
beans (18-19 screen).
El Recreo Estate
9/11/19 - Ethiopia Natural Ayehu is
now available. Ayehu is from the Northwestern part of
Ethiopia. The most striking part during our cupping
of these beans is its silky body. The coffee is very
pleasing to the palate.
9/2/19 - Guatemala
Bella Carmona is now available. So is Kenya
Kigutha. Both of these coffees are high-end in
flavor and characteristics at very reasonable prices, considering
the quality. Next: Bella Carmona Peaberry and one or two other
8/23/19 - Some good Guatemalan Coffee news. From
the Acatenango growing region, we just got in some
El Carmen. El Carmen is an old estate
going back to 1930. SHB (Strictly Hard Bean), grown at over
4,000 ft msl., this coffee has very versatile flavor profiles
depending on how it's roasted. Check out more in the description.
Late next week we're bringing back Bella Carmona, from Antigua. This is
one of our all time favorites from Guatemala. We're also expecting
to get a bag of Bella Carmona Peaberry, so stay tuned!
7/19/19 - Another very nice Mexican
coffee from the Custapec Valley has been posted.
This estate grown coffee has undergone immaculate processing,
which is evident by the lack of visible defects (insect bites,
brokens, stinker beans, etc.). The results of the extra care
given to both the coffee shrubs 'n cherries are evident in
the flavor of the cup.
7/11/19 - Mexico
Chiapas is now available.
We may have some very interesting limited-edition Costa
Rican microlot coffees coming in late next week. Stay tuned!
7/6/19 - Ethiopia Yirgacheffe "Mamo
Cacho" is now available.
Red Pacamara is back in stock! Also new is Kenya Chania
Peaberry. This is an incredibly intense, flavor packed
coffee. Lots of chocolate and cherry-like nuances.
5/1/19 - For something a little different,
a natural processed bean from Costa Rica - "El
4/23/19 - From Ethiopia,
Wote Konga: A Top Lot G1 Yirgacheffe has been
posted. This is a rock-solid choice for a great Yirgacheffe
- berrylike, but not overpoweringly so with creamy body making
it an excellent choice for single-origin espresso as well
as any other type of coffee brewing methods.
