[i don't think i'm allowed to actually "sell" anything on this blogsite. this will eventually be on the website... it's posted here for, you know, "informational" purposes.]


‘Freshroast’ Whole Bean Offerings 2/06
Subject to Seasonal Availability

‘Freshroast’ means your coffee is roasted to order, never in advance, and always guaranteed to please. Available in 12 oz. bags with degassing valves. Yes! We offer our coffees in bulk. 5 lb. bags (with degassing valves) are available for wholesale accounts or for folks who drink tons and tons of coffee.

Brazil Cerrado 17/18 Perhaps the world’s ‘softest’ cup. Mellow sweetness greets you, while a fine, mid-notes body pleases the palate with a complexity that stands up to milk without standing too far out. Historically used as filler for industrial blends, our Brazil is finding a life of its own with amazing clarity in the cup. Delightful as a lighter roast, single-origin espresso or perfect as an all-day coffee.

Costa Rica SHB Estate Tarrazu EP If you’re a little in the dark about terms like “Strictly Hard Bean,” and “Euro-prepped,” don’t worry. All you need to know is that these coffee beans from the ancient region of Tarrazu are of the highest pedigree, cared for meticulously from seed to mill. An intriguing balance of tangy acidity and semi-sweet baking cocoa, gracious and inviting.

Sumatra Grade 1 Lintong, Triple-Picked Coffee from Sumatra’s Lintong region retains that earthy, mushroom quality Sumatras are known for, while displaying hints of cedar and even lemon grass. A triple-picked (TP) Sumatra means that its well-loved muskiness will give over to a slightly more refined feel in the mouth. A great match for rich desserts. Beautiful and brooding.

Kenya Auction Lot #54 Peaberry If you are a sucker for berries in the cup this one will really deliver. Here is a wonderful cup character with complex fruity and citrusy notes from blackberry to currant to Kenya’s signature caramelized grapefruit tones. Truly a special offering that unfolds richly even as the cup cools. Reward yourself with this African gem. Brew it double strength and pour over ice for a cool change of pace.

Guatemala Coban, El Tirol Estate (Aurora Lot) [Organic] Out of Coban’s mystic cloud forests comes a surprisingly versatile coffee. The Aurora Farm of “El Tirol” Estate resides at approximately 5,000 feet in a very damp environment. All that rain means a slow unfolding of the bean’s growing season, resulting in a spicy sweetness that turns to a pleasant milky chocolate in the leave. Wonderful with a light to mid-level roast.

Colombia Mesa De Los Santos [Organic] Since1872 this organic treasure represents the best of two worlds: it is both delicious and agriculturally sustainable. Sweet aromatic displays of pears, dates and raisins combine intriguingly with rumors of darker spices like nutmeg and sage. A coffee not to be rushed...unfold each layer one moment at a time.

Ethiopia Harar, Oromia Co-op [Fair Trade, Organic] A dry-processed coffee is a beautiful and mysterious thing. This cup shows at times the wild fruit of the tropics, while other times the passion of a gingery chocolate. These untamed tendencies prove Harar may be the world’s most unpredictable coffee, offering you the thrill of exploration, the satisfaction of discovery.

Rwanda Gatare, Grade A It is said there is no greater burden than that of potential. Thankfully, after many dark days, Rwanda is beginning to lift that burden as it produces elegantly floral coffees that are causing the world to take notice. This lot is exceptionally complex, exhibiting the bright, sweet bite of lemon rind and the aromatic woodiness of cedar and pine. Our Rwanda is a enticing selection we know you’ll enjoy.

Papua New Guinea, Kimel Plantation A beautiful, clean cup balancing a creamy butter foundation with a remarkable fruit nectar component. Delivering goods to market has historically been hampered by significant lack of infrastructure in this, one of the most indigenously diverse and ecologically pristine countries left on earth. We are intensely proud to offer this coffee as a rare treat to savor.

Java Djampit, Government Estate Coffee grown on the slopes of an active volcano has a mystique all its own. Coffee from the storied island of Java only heightens the expectation. Syrupy, rich and full-bodied, our Java is the prime example of the country’s terroir: pungent and intense. Brew yourself a cup and lose yourself in the shimmering deep oils of bittersweet bliss.

Decaf Kenya [WP] It’s nice to find a decaf that doesn’t lose character in the cup. Our Decaf Kenya is impulsive and ambrosial, with a sweet brightness that doesn’t blind and an unbelievable aroma of juicy grapefruit citrus that will fill any room. Plenty of action without being too busy; decaffeinated to keep you from being too busy, either. Enjoyable any time, day or night.

Decaf Sulawesi Toraja [WP] Start with a nearly heroic lot of coffee. Decaffeinate it without chemicals. Then recognize what an incredible find you hold in your hands: an Indonesian coffee of indelible character that doesn’t give an inch of flavor away to its caffeinated counterpart. An attractive offering with deep body, low acidity and hints of dried plantains and apples. A superb addition to a course of fruit and soft cheeses.
