3/18/18 - New "El
Rinconada" from Huehuetenango,
Guatemala. From the El Aguacatal ("avocado
plantation") farm. This is a vibrant,
sweet-lemony coffee characteristic
of this region. The beans are very
high-grown, which translates into
a longer growing cycle , which gives
the beans more time to develop and
work their internal magic. As a bonus,
we're offering a Customer
Code discount valid until
4/4/17. Just enter "RINCON" in the
Customer Code box during checkout
to receive a 10% discount
on this amazing coffee - Valic
3/17/18 - Happy St. Patrick's
Day! Our luck has been pretty
good lately. The anxiously awaited
Gayo Longberry has arrived
and is now available. It is definitely
one of the best currently available
Sumatrans. These beans have gone through
what is refereed to as a "triple
picked" process in which the
beans are moved along a line of women
workers in the processing facility
to have defects, foreign matter, and
other undesirable beans removed from
the mass - "three times"
it goes through this. The result is,
of course, a very clean tasting cup
of coffee in the end.
Coming up next: From Guatemala, "La
Rinconada" It's in, but apparently
Valic is too busy shuffling bags in
the back to get it up and posted.
3/13/18 - Tanzania
Tarime just added to
our Single Origin offering list. This
is somewhat similar to Kenyan coffees
as it is grown in the same soil provided
by Mount Kilimanjaro. Processed using
a fully-washed method, then dried
in the sun on raised African drying
Still waiting for Valic to get the
Sumatran Gayo Longberry posted. Hopefully
within the next day or two.
3/9/18 - From Brazil - "Pocos
de Caldas" has replaced
the long-standing "Carmo de Minas".
Pocos de Caldas is a sweet, flavorful
bean somewhat similar to the Carmo
but grown in different volcanic soils,
creating creamy body and invigorating
brightness in the cup.
Other exciting new coffees will be
coming available in the next few days,
including the Sumatran Gayo Longberry
noted below. Stay tuned!
3/6/14 - An exciting new
Sumatran coffee will be available
by the weekend. We've been impatiently
awaiting it's arrival. Is from a very
small, select microlot from the Aceh
region of Indonesia. Seems like a
very good year for quality Sumatran
coffees. - details coming soon.
2/14/18 - Last day to get
in on the Reje Gayo discount! It's
going pretty fast, when it's gone,
Next up (but not yet), we lucked
into getting a Sumatra Longberry microlot.
Due to its quality and very limited
quantity, this coffee commands a higher
price than most Sumatran coffees,
but we feel it is well worth it. Sumatran
coffee lovers will be pleasantly astonished
how nice of a cup (or espresso) this
coffee produces. It will not be available
until the end of February/beginning
1/3/18 - Happy New Year -
We're ringing the New Year
in with a 10% on randomly chosen coffees.
Coffee types will change every week
for the month of January; one type
per week, no quantity restriction.
This week's special:
11/24/17 - Papua
New Guinea Peaberry is
replacing the Wa'u, and comes from
one of the largest and well-known
farms in the region: Sigri Estate.
A new crop of these peaberrys have
just arrived and we expect to keep
it in stock for the next six months
or so. For those that are wondering
what a peaberry is, it's a single
seed (coffee bean) that has formed
inside the coffee cherry. Typically
there are two seeds butted against
each other during formation. This
is why coffee beans normally have
a flat side to them. Peaberrys are
more ovular; like little footballs
but with rounded ends. Very flavorful.
Muted acidity, sweet, excellent for
all brew methods including espresso.
11/22/16 - Rwanda
Bumbogo is now available.
Up next, we'll be switching out our
Papua New Guinea organic Wa'u with
a really nice peaberry from Sigri
Estate. We used to carry this peaberry
a few years ago and are very happy
to offer it again.
/11/19/17 - Available sometime
this week - Rwanda Bumbogo. As
soon as we get it off the truck Valic
will be posting this new microlot
coffee. It's a sock-knocker!
10/22/17 - From Mexico: Guadeloupe
Azju Tablon #2. We've
been on a mission to find an outstanding
Mexican coffee and this is what we
found. One of the higher Mexican-grown
coffees available, this hard-bean
is from an area in southern Chiapas
near the border of Guatemala. It has
some very nice characteristics such
as: sweet, clean, and bright. It is
our current favorite around the Lost
Dutchman Cupping Table.
8/27/17 - Two new single
origin coffees have been added:
Salimba Estate and Kenya
Yirgacheffe is back!
Sadly, our Rwanda coffee is all gone
- An exciting new coffee on our list
is an outstanding, sweet, intense
bodied coffee high grown from the
middle of Africa. This is another
microlot coffee we stumbled upon by
sheer luck. It is the current favorite
around our roasting shop and cafe.

from our roastery will no longer be
available. So going forward (for now
anyway), all local pick-ups can be
