4/2/21 Some Good News: we
finally received the long awaited
arrival of a nice Brazil from"Jaurez
This coffee, grown on a small microlot
producing farm, received very special
attention during the entire growing
season. It was selected as part of
the Capricornia project that we feature
from time to time.
Brazil Black Honey
is all gone. We have more held in
reserve and expect to take delivery
of it later this month (or maybe in
May). For now we highly recommend
the Jaurez Colatino coffee in above
post in its place. If you like the
Black Honey, you'll definitely like
our new web site: It's quite
a project. We want it to be just right
and while focusing on modernization
for better mobile device usage, we're
trying hard to keep the "flavor
and feel" of the current site
so hopefully it won't be too much
of a "smack in the face"
to some. It's coming along nicely
and is a month or so out from launching.
We're very excited about it.
3/19/21 - Apparently there
have been some issues with our shopping
cart deleting coffee selections when
more than one is made. It was only
happening with certain types of coffees,
but the issue should be fixed now.
3/14/21 - Ethiopia
Sidama "Masha" has
been added to our offering list. Masha
is an organic, shade-grown certified
coffee from the Sidama region of Ethiopia.
This is one of those berry-like exotics
that we get in every now and then.
When it's gone, it's gone!
3/11/21 - Some exciting news:
Our web site is currently
being rebuilt from the ground up in
order to "catch up with the 21st
century". Originally created
in/around 2004, we've never really
had the need to modernize it but with
current search engine technology as
well as the way people operate online,
it's time for a revamp.
It will be modernized to be more
functional with smart phones, tablets,
etc. and will be easier to navigate
through as well as being a vast improvement
on the way information is displayed.
It is still a ways off (probably a
month or so). Will keep everyone posted.
Other news: a new "very
berry" Ethiopian is
on the way. We'll try and have it
posted by the weekend (along with
the new Brazil we have which is not
quite up on the site yet). This Ethiopian
has high strawberry notes.
Salvador "La Fany" is
now available. If you like Guatemalan
and other Central American coffees,
this is a great one to try out. We
were very pleasantly surprised at
the cupping table when we evaluated
2/25/21 - Colombians are
back in stock. The new Brazil
and El Salvador coffees will be posted
2/18/21 - Incoming coffees
include La Fany from El Salvador
and an equally nice
Brazil "Coanop Juarex Colatino
Barros" (don't try to
say it to fast - sound it out and
it's not too hard). Both will be available
early next week.
Just added to our line-up of Central
American coffees - Guatemala
Antigua. This coffee
comes from the Pastores mill located
in central Antigua and is comprised
of select small-holder farms (a co-op).
2/15/21 - No more Colombian
coffee for a week. For some
inexplicable reason we've experienced
a much higher than usual demand for
Colombian coffee. It will be available
again by next weekend.
2/7/21 - Brazil
Dulcineia dos Santos Black Honey
is once again available.
The sweetest of the honey-prep coffees,
our black honey is amazingly flavorful
12/5/20 Indonesia Blue Dragon
is all gone for now. We're
expecting more when the new crop arrives
in a couple of months.
Gatuya Peaberry is back
in stock. We ran out for a very short
while. This is an amazing coffee for
anyone that has not tried it.
11/18/20 - Ethiopia
Sidamo "Gora Kone" is
now available. Gora Kone is traditional
in flavor and cup character for a
nice coffee from the Southern region
of Ethiopia. This is a shade grown
coffee grown under and among acacia
a wanza trees. What is a wanza tree?
Here's a picture of one. Note the
car underneath. Only in Africa.
11/6/20 - Brazil
Dulcineia dos Santos Black Honey
is now available. The Gora
Kone will be posted soon.
10/31/20 - Coming
in late next week, a nice Sidamo from
Ethiopia: "Gora Kone".
Also coming back by popular demand,
a Black Honey style coffee
from Brazil - "Dulcineia
dos Santos". Stay tuned...so
many nice coffees are coming in around
this time of year.
10/11/20 - Finally, the
is here and is now available.
It's well worth the wait...
9/12/20 - Coming in late
next week, a Geisha from Costa Rica.
What is Geisha (also known
as Gesha from it's origin)? There
are two main strains of coffee - arabica
and robusta, with a lesser known strain
as liberica. Most specialty coffees
consist of varietals of arabica. A
much less known and rare coffee varietal
is Geisha, with was originally found
during the 1930's in a mountainous
region of Ethiopia known as Geis.
It then traveled (the seeds) to Central
America, mostly grown in Panama and
Costa Rica. High on sweetness and
various powerful citrus and stone
fruit flavors geisha coffees have
won many Cup of Excellence awards
throughout the world in recent years.
It is expensive and in our opinion
is one of the only high-priced coffees
that justify the cost. Cost for geisha
coffees typically start at the same
as Hawaiian coffees and go up from
there. Stay tuned.
9/6/20 - New microlot
from Brazil now available -
Sauza". This is
a very limited edition coffee that
came available to us in only a small
quantity. It is a yellow-honey prep,
making it a sweeter coffee than it
would normaly be using a traditional
sun-dried processing method.
8/29/20 - From Guatemala
Huehuetenango Finca El Zapote.
This is a very bright, invigorating
coffee. Available now while supplies
8/1/20 - From the island
of Sumatra - Black Panther. At
the cupping table, we were pleasantly
surprised at the syrupy body of this
coffee, even for a Sumatran, which
is typically has fuller body than
coffees from other regions. In stock
and available now.

Blue / Sweet
