5/12/21 - New coffees - Sumatra
Pollung Lintong. This
is a very high quality coffee coming
from near the famed coffee growing
region of Lake Toba. Many barista
competition coffees come from this
area and are used because of the thick
crema produced in part by the syrupy
body of the beans.
Also back, Brazil
Dulcineia dos Santos Black Honey.
We've been saving some in a warehouse
on the west coast to bring out just
in time for the Summer months. Looks
like we're a little early, but oh
Masha, an organic coffee,
was posted last week rather haphazardly
and it was marked as "out of
stock", which is not true. We
just got some in stock and have plenty
of it. We've carried this before and
love the berry flavors and coffee-blossom
5/5/21 - Guatemala
"La Voz" is
back in stock. We carried this coffee
a few years ago and are happy to have
it back in our line-up. Very clean,
bright, and tasty.
5/3/21 - New crop in from
- Zanzibar Peaberry. Little
round gems selected from the highest
growing elevations in Tanzania. Limited
We have a couple of other new coffees
in as well, including Brazil Black
Honey and a new Ethiopian. Valic will
get them posted as soon as he gets
around to it. Speaking of Ethiopians,
there's a ton of great coffee from
there just sitting off the western
coast of the U.S.. Shipping is a mess
and is severely backed up right now,
but hopefully the precious beans will
be unloaded later this month.
4/3/21 Some Good News:
we finally received the long awaited
arrival of a nice Brazil from"Jaurez
Colatino Barros". 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.
