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).

2/7/21 – Brazil Dulcineia dos Santos Black Honey is once again available. The sweetest of the honey-prep coffees, our black honey is amazingly flavorful and vibrant.
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.
12/2/20 Kenya 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.

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 Geisha 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 – “Marisella 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 last.
