Lost Dutchman, The Legend (a background to our namesake)
Updates and News:
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 - Yirgacheffe
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 surprises.
5/23/15 - Guatemala Bella Carmona and Sumatra SWP Decaf have been added to our offering sheet.
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 coffee roasters.
Ethiopia Lomi Tasha - an elegant new crop coffee.
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 from Guatemala.
12/21/14 - New arrivals now posted -
Guatemala Huehuetenango - Palmira
Mexico Chiapas Decaf
12/18/14 - New incoming coffees - It's been a very busy season and some of our coffee stash is low. The good news is more is incoming later today. Among the newcomers are a couple of nice Mexican coffees, one is the popular Custapec that we've frequently carried in the past, the other is a CO2 processed decaf. We're also pleased to announce that the Colombia Tolima we're getting is directly sourced from a fantastic farm called Sweet Latitude. While the bean size is relatively small - around 16 screen, the quality and flavor is among the best Colombian coffees we've ever cupped.
Also, a new Guatemalan. Valic should have them posted by
