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

Rica and one from Brazil.

Bella Carmona Peaberry is now

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

a little less balanced in the cup,
but this is just fine since assorted
nuttiness makes for quite an interesting
