Lost Dutchman, The Legend (a background to our namesake)
Updates and News:
11/27/15 - Just in and posted on our Green Coffee
Offering page - Kenya
"Blue Dragon", Colombia
Decaf (MWP), and PNG
11/20/16 - We just finished cupping some nice coffees,
which should become available late next week. These
include another Indonesian Flores coffee - "Green Dragon"
(where do they get these names? Probably from the Komodo Dragon
that live all over the place on this island) - another Kenyan,
and at least one other PNG coffee.
11/17/15 - Guatemala
Antigua - Acate, just added to our green coffee
offering sheet. We've stocked this coffee many times in the
past, as it is a solid, traditional Antigua.
10/28/15 - We found this interesting coffee growing
on the treacherous slopes of Mt. Kelimutu in Sumatra. This
"Mutu Batak" green coffee is very well
processed with few brokens. Excellent, classical Sumatra characteristics.
This is one of those coffees that when we cupped it, we instantly
knew we wanted to have some around for awhile, so we expect
to be able to stock it at least through January. Currently
available on our green
coffee offering page.
9/5/15 - Kenya "Chomo" added to
our green coffee offering page. This is a rather rare top
auction lot coffee at an amazingly low price, considering
that it is a high quality Kenya coffee.
The bad news today is that we're completely out of Sumatra
Super Peaberry. We're looking for more and will re-stock it
as it becomes available.
9/3/15 - New coffees posted - A very clean
bean from Colombia
Nariño. Next, Guatemala
El Zapote from the Acetenango region of Guatemala.
Both of these are top notch coffees.
Coming as soon as Valic gets around to posting, Kenya Chomo.
We have it in stock, there's just not enough time to get up.
8/23/15 - A new Kenyan coffee will be coming
in by the end of the week. More details to follow soon.
7/19/15 - New Arrivals - Ethiopia
Hambela / Guji, and from Indonesia, Fores
Komodo. You won't want to miss out on the Komodo.
When it's gone, it's gone!
6/15/2015 - We've received numerous references to
how we tape zip lock bags full of green coffee closed for
shipping. While most of our fellow home coffee roasters seem
to agree it's a necessary evil because they can be so hard
to open, they understand why we have to do it. Going forward,
we are folding the packing tape over about 1/4 inch to provide
a way to peel the tape off. If you're someone that would rather
take your chances with the bags coming open during shipment
and request "no tape, please", please allow us to
try this on your next order. It's not that hard for us to
pack your coffee this way and may just help prevent unwanted
5/19/15 - Coming in a few days, Guatemala Bella Carmona. Arguably the best of the best from Guatemala. We had to poke around quite a bit to get it. High on chocolaty notes, very clean cup and a medium body. Valic will have it posted by Friday.
Also worthy of mention, we'll be getting in a very fresh batch of Sumatran Decaf, C02 processed. Our opinion has always been that the C02 decaffeinating process is the very best method, next to water processing, for retaining maximum flavor characteristics. This coffee also makes for some of the best espresso.
Not to stop here, also a nice Colombian from Narino. More on this sweet coffee when it comes in at the end of this week.
4/23/15 - Just in - Sumatra
Super Peaberry - a popular favorite amongst peaberry-loving
Ethiopia Harrar - Mesela - another very fresh coffee bean right from the cradle (birth place) of coffee.
Also in but not yet posted (where's Valic?) - Nicaragua:Los Congos: Pacamara Cascara - For those of you who remember, this is the rich flavored coffee pulp used to make a coffee "tea". We'll try to get this posted by the weekend.
4/20/15 - Incoming - Some really nice Ethiopian coffees. We're hoping to get them up on our green coffee offering sheet before next weekend. Also, stay tuned for an old favorite - Guatemala Bella Carmona. This is still a couple of weeks out, but we'll have some in stock soon.
3/7/15 - Just in - Kenya Kiambu AA. A solidly-nice Kenyan at a reasonable price.
Also, Mexico Custapec is back!
2/1/15 - Just in (and posted):
Colombia Popayan and Papua
New Guinea Mile High (AA). Coming within a couple
of weeks, a new Kenyan and by popular demand, Bella Carmona
