New Arrivals!

We have some new coffees in stock and more on the way!

India Mysore Nuggets Extra Bold is new to us. We had a short tangent of trying out some coffees from countries we don’t normally carry and we just fell in love with this crop from India! It has a really nice balance of sweet and bright notes with a solid body, just a touch wild.

While you may not recognize the name, we are happy to have Sulawesi Toraja coffee back in stock. We have carried this country’s coffee under “Celebes Kalossi” previously but Sulawesi is the proper country name since their independence in 1945. This crop is heavy, creamy, and rich.

We have a new Ethiopia coffee out of the Sidamo Zone. This one’s smooth and syrupy with nicely balanced sweet and slightly tangy notes. If you’ve been missing our Harrar coffee it’s worth giving this one a try, it’s not quite the same but somewhat reminiscent. Speaking of Ethiopia Harrar, our importer has some on the way to their warehouses but we don’t expect to see a sample until May.

We’ve been featuring our Paupa New Guinea as March’s coffee of the month but we’ve just switched into a new crop. The Papua New Guinea Konkua is a chocolate bomb and just as excellent as the previous Timuza crop.

COMING SOON: Timor-Leste is on the road and we should have it back on the menu in the next couple of weeks. We will also be offering a Brazil Peaberry coffee, look for the in the next couple of weeks. Three new coffee mug styles are on the way as well!

New Store Hours on Fridays!

We hope you are having a pleasant start to 2023 and thank you again for all the support and love last year!

This year we’ll be adding some evening hours. Starting Friday January 27th, our new Friday hours are 9am to 7pm! We hope this will give some flexibility to those of you that can’t make it during our daytime hours. We’ll have both caffeinated and decaffeinated pots brewed for our $3 cups of drip coffee.

On a different note, our shipping costs have increased some due to changes the postal service has made recently. Please know we are currently working to lower these costs as quickly as possible. If you ever have any questions about shipping costs, please feel free to call or email!

Now, on a good note again, we have been sampling several coffees lately and will have some great new arrivals coming in shortly!

More New Arrivals!

We are continuing to get some of our old favorites back in the store this summer. Both Tanzania Peaberry and Costa Rica La Minita are back on the menu now! We found these crops to be so nicely balanced with a mix of pleasant sweet and bright flavor notes.

Our Tanzania Ruvuma Peaberry comes out of one of the southern-most regions of the country, bordering Mozambique to the south and the African Great Lake Nyasa to the west. A collaboration between two companies, Soochak Bush and Tropex, acts as a type of cooperative for small farms in the Mbinga district. Having this type of group makes sure small farm-holders can get their crops to the international market and receive fair pay. This crop is smooth and rich, great medium body, with notes of dark chocolate, chocolate chess pie, orange, and grapefruit. On offer for $18.95 per pound.

We know so many of you will be happy to see Costa Rica Hacienda La Minita back on offer! Hacienda La Minita continues to be a pinnacle of meticulous coffee growing and processing. The high altitudes, location of the farm and how the land is worked all come together to create an excellent micro-climate for La Minita’s coffee trees. Elegant, balanced, and refined, this is a lovely crop and on offer for $20.95 per pound.

New T-shirts are in store now as well! It’s a soft and comfy fabric with our logo in color. Sizes small to extra large are available for $20.
