New Guinea Sigri Estate is now available.
No more Misty Valley for now. A new Ethiopian
is coming in later this week.
6/16/19 - Out of Mexican Chiapas. More will
be coming within 2 weeks. Also inbound is a very nice Kenya
PB, a new Colombian, and some Ethiopians. As we enter the
Summer months, we like to reduce our overall local inventory
to minimums due to our arid Arizona climate. So just chill
for awhile :)
5/1/19 - For something a little different,
a natural processed bean from
Costa Rica - "El Trapiche".
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.
4/8/19 Out of Ethiopia Shantawene. Right
now we have Misty Valley (Yirgacheffe) for Ethiopians. We're
expecting an exciting new Sidamo within the next couple of
4/6/19 - From Guatemala
- San Marcos Barrancas has been added to our
Main growing regions in Guatemala
3/2/19 - India
Kaapi Royale Robusta has been added to our green
coffee offering page. This robusta is high quality grown specifically
to be used in southern Italian espresso blends.
2/27/19 - Nicaragua El Limoncillo Red Pacamara Pulped
Natural has been posted to the green coffee offering
page. Try something a little different! The Indian Robusta
will be posted next.
2/26/19 - Incoming includes a Pacamara from Nicaragua
and an Indian cherry robusta. Pacamara is a hybrid
coffee that combines Paca and Maragogype cultivars resulting
in very large, tasty beans.
Will be posted within the next couple of days.
2/16/19 - Just in - Ethiopia Organic Sidamo - "Shantawene".
This is a nice, sun-dried (natural process) coffee grown in
a very high mountainous area amongst banana groves. The resulting
long growing period results in mature, extra sweet coffee
beans. When roasting, the beans will appear uneven in color,
but remember, it is the taste, not the looks that count! Resist
the urge to pick out the lighter colored ones as these do
contribute to the overall flavor in the cup.
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.
