4/25/20 - Peru
"Jose Alvino Tejada"
is now available. If you
like Central/South American coffees,
you will not want to miss out on this
one. It comes from a very small microlot
producing farm high up in the mountains
of Peru. Supplies are very limited
so we don't expect it to be around
more than a month or so (unless we
can get more, which we are currently
attempting to do). One of the great
things about this coffee is the quality
vs. the relatively low price. One
would expect such an overall elegance
to be a much higher cost.
4/21/20 - Ethiopia
Sidamo Wottona Bultuma
(say it real fast, go ahead and try
it!) has been added to our selection
of roasted coffees. We were very pleasantly
surprised at the overall complexity
of this coffee at the cupping table.
Crop of Costa Rica La Minita Tarrazu
just came in and we are all stocked
up to last until next harvest. Very
3/28/20 - We might
be holed up in our homes, but we are
not going to be beaten down without
coffee! An incredible new Sumatran
just came in that we are very happy
to offer. Sumatra
Horas Tano Batak is a
bold, low-acidic, very flavorful coffee.
3/27/20 - Two coffees added
back to our line-up. From Costa Rica,
back by popular demand is Hacienda
La Manga. And from Africa,
3/21/20 - Our business
remains open and fully operational
during the ongoing pandemic. Orders
are being processed the same as they
always have been. Our coffee house
in downtown Mesa, however is a little
different. It is now grab-and-go.
Local pickups for coffee ordered on
this web site can still be picked
up over there in the usual manner.
You just won't see a crowd hanging
out at the tables!
3/13/20 - An awesome new
coffee from Kenya just arrived: Kenya
Kagumo has been added
to our single-origin coffee line up.
This coffee puts a big smile on our
faces every time we brew some in our
2/29/20 - From India, "Monsoon
Malabar" has been
added to our single-origin line up.
This has been a very popular coffee
at our local coffee house so we decided
to make it available here.
2/9/20 - New coffee varietals
coming in later this week
include at least one Ethiopian and
from India, Mysore Nuggets (that's
right!). More details coming soon...
No more Costa Rica La Manga - It's
all gone. However, we have plenty
La Pradera in stock.
If this coffee had a fault, it's that
it is too perfect in many respects.
From the processing of the coffee
beans at the farm level, to the pleasant
flavor that the unique volcanic soils
of Costa Rica helps create, this coffee
produces a gratifying cup on icy cold
12/22/19 - Ethiopia
has just been posted. This is a natural
processed coffee dried on raised beds.
This is one of those sock-knocker-offer
coffees that you won't want to miss
out on. Here's a link for a detailed
description of the growers and the
Also in but not posted - Costa Rica
"La Manga". This is yet
another microlot coffee that is simply
too good to pass up.. So many great
Costas this year...Valic will get
it up within a day or so. On another
note, our stock of La Minita Tarrazu
is running near empty. We will not
be expecting any more until March.
11/21/19 - Hacienda
La Pradera Tarrazu is
now available. La Pradera is a fairly
large estate grown up the valley from
Hacienda La Minita. The coffee trees/shrubs
are of the red bourbon variety and
were all planted within the last five
to six years.

Heliodora. This is another
nice microlot coffee we found that
is a red honey-preparation. "Honey
preparation" is a relatively
new processing method in which the
coffee seeds (aka "beans")
are left inside the coffee cherry
for part of the drying process right
after harvesting. This allows the
sweetness and flavors of the pulp
to migrate into the seeds, thus intensifying
"the goodness of the bean".
10/31/19 - Happy Halloween!
We have some really nice coffees coming
in today at our loading dock. Several
new microlots include two from Costa
Rica and one from Brazil.
9/14/19 - Guatemala Bella
Carmona Peaberry is now available.
These beans are similar in
character to the regular Carmona with
the difference being the peaberries
are roasted slightly more chocolatey
flavor in mind.
Peaberry coffee has smaller, rounder
beans than "normal" ones.
Bella Carmona Antigua is
now available. Valic will be posting
more arrivals over the course of the
next few days, including a Kenyan,
Ethiopian, and probably a new Nicaraguan.
So stay tuned...
8/24/19 - No more
Kenya Chania (for now). We're hoping
to get a new Kenyan in late next week.
8/23/19 - Summer Doldrums:
The Costa microlots are not in yet.
We're waiting for them to be transported
from the east coast to the west coast.
Hopefully we'll get them in late next
Our all-time favorite Guatemalan
coffee, Bella Carmona,
from the Antigua growing region of
Guatemala, is being added back to
our line-up of Central American coffees.
We're hoping to make this a regular
staple on our shelves. Check back

state of Chiapas, Mexico, we're very

and careful attention to growing practices
resulting in a very clean, bright
Stay tuned for some limited edition
microlots coming in from Costa Rica

Nicaragua El Lemoncillo Red Pacamara,
and a new surprise, Colombia
Jardin Alma Del Cafe are
now all available (just posted!)
Ethiopia "Mamo Cacho coming
The Colombian Alma Del Cafe is an
incredibly vibrant, clean tasting
supremo that we carried a few years
ago. The current crop is so amazing
we've contracted enough of it to hopefully
last throughout the rest of the year,
so it will be around for awhile.
3/21/19 - Papua
New Guinea Sigri Estate
is back! This is a well rounded,
low acidic, flavorful coffee from
one of the far corners of the Earth.
The beans are cultivated and processed
using modern methods.
A far corner of the Earth as we know
Other coffees coming soon including
an amazing sun-dried coffee from Costa
3/13/19 - We are pleased
to now offer Nicaragua El Limoncillo
Red Pacamara. This is definitely
for those that like Central American
coffees, but with a nice twist. "Pacamara"
is a hybrid coffee consisting of Pacamara
(a form of caturra cultivar), and
"Maragogype", also sometimes
called "elephant beans"
because of their very large size.
Processed through a natural pulping
process to enhance sweetness, the
flavor of these bean is unique.

1/3/19 - From the Daterra
Collection - Brazil
Sweet Blue is now available.
Similar to Sweet Yellow but with subtle
differences, Sweet Blue is a little
sweeter than the yellow bourbon cousin
with faint chocolate notes. It is
a little less balanced in the cup,
but this is just fine since assorted
nuttiness makes for quite an interesting
12/19/18 - Brazil
Moscardini is in! This
is an incredible coffee created using
a very special processing technique.
Moscardini is hands-down our current
favorite here at Lost Dutchman Coffee
Roasters. We're hoping to make this
a regular offering.
Read more to learn more about
the processing technique.
