Lost Dutchman, The Legend (a background to our namesake)
Updates and News:
3/6/15 - Incoming coffees to be posted within a day or two: Guatemala Los Santos - comes from a fourth generation farmer from the Antigua region. Coffee varitals include:Bourbon, Catuai, Caturra.
An added incoming bonus: Sulawesi Toraja - something we don't usually stock, but this is really a nice Sula...... and also a Sumatra Gay Mountain. Check back soon, these coffees will be available by/before the weekend.
3/2/14 - Out of El Salvadors and Guatemalans. New crop Centrals are waiting offshore to get through customs, so we thought we'd wait another week or two before ordering up new ones (there are some really nice ones we've been waiting for). We did find a gem of a coffee from Mexico - "Hacienda Miravalles". It is a family owned estate coffee located in the high lands of the Sierra Madre mountain range in western Mexico. Organic and Bird Friendly. It comes to us in Grain-pro lined burlap bags. We'll have it posted later this week when it arrives at our loading dock.
2/13/14 - Just in - From the Carmo de Minas region of Brazil, we found a super-nice microlot coffee from the Reis Brothers estate farm. This coffee is a joy to roast; clean, uniform beans. For those who think Brazil coffees lack complexity, we recommend trying this one. It is the current favorite here at Lost Dutchman.
Mexican Chiapas decaf coming in tomorrow. It is a mountain water processed decaf coffee.
For Locals and anyone who may be visiting the Mesa AZ area, our new Coffee House just opened. We're going through a few expected pains, but the coffee is excellent and our staff, cheerful, skilled, and friendly. Stop by if you're in the area and check it out! We've been so busy trying to open that myself and Valic have not been able to update this site with new green coffee arrivals as much as we'd like, but hopefully we'll get back to normal here soon and will provide updates much more often.
1/27/14 - Important Notice: Our local pick-up hours on Saturdays are being trimmed from 11-2 to 12-2 pm. We are currently working on opening another shop in downtown Mesa and need the extra time to finish construction of it. These new hours will be effective immediately. On the good side, customers will be able to take advantage of us being open during the week to pick up green coffee orders anytime (something we get asked about a lot). Lots of big things happening here. More info coming soon (maybe some pictures of the new building if Valic's up to posting them).New coffees are still a couple weeks out. We're overstocked right now and have some new good ones coming (will be pleasant surprises when they do get here).
1/20/14 -Coming soon, a new PNG. Also, just in, new stainless steel French Presses. They'll be available as soon as Valic gets them up on the site.
1/3/14 - Happy New Year! We're ringing in the New Year with several new arrivals: From Colombia: Nariño Samaniego, and a popular favorite, San Agustin (also from Colombia). Lastly, we re-stocked our supply of Yirgacheffe Kochere from Ethiopia, so we now have Yirgacheffe coffee in both wet and natural processed varieties. Both are very good, but also quite different due to the finishing methods of each of these coffees.
Other news: French Presses coming back soon. We're getting in both Travel Presses's and Presses for regular home use. Should be in late by next week sometime.
12/28/13 Hope everyone had a great Christmas. We'll be open during our usual Saturday hours from 11:00-2:00 for local pick-ups.
More coffee coming in next week. Colombians, maybe an El Salvador, another washed Yirg...........the possibilities are endless.
Stay tuned for a big announcement coming soon (mostly for our local customers).
12/13/13 - Amaro Gayo from Ethiopia, and Costa Rica Tarrazu Peaberry just posted to our green coffee offering page. The Nicaraguan San Lucila is in, but not yet posted.
12/0913 - New Coffees coming in very soon. An amazing new peaberry from Costa Rica, an elegant coffee from Nicaragua, and more (we'll keep the other two as a sort of surprise)..... Valic should have them posted within a few days so they will be available by/before the weekend.
11/26/13 - Ethiopian Amaro Gayo Coming back soon. Also India Monsooned Malabar. Is about 2 weeks away. It might seem like we're laying kind of low lately, but we're not. We're actually very busy restocking a lot of our current coffee offerings and cupping some soon-to-be announced new ones.
11/09/13 - Colombian Peaberry is back in stock. This is a really nice tasting peaberry coffee that seems to have a little more caffeine that most arabicas. It's a great coffee to try out if you haven't already.
Sumatra Super Peaberry - Back in Stock!
New - Java Prianger Grade1 - A super nice, Java!
Just posted - Cascara Coffee Cherry Tea - it looks kind of ugly in its raw form, but brew it like you would a tea and be amazed by it's unique raspberry jam, syrupy flavor. We're happy to be able to offer it at a great price.
11/02/13 -Guatemala Bella Carmona is in! Just added it to our green coffee offering page. Also in is some very fresh Honduras Capucas Organic green coffee. Next week we'll be getting in the new Sumatrans, which include Aceh Gayo. Stay tuned.
10/28/03 - Coming later this week - Guatemala Bella Caroma. This is an excellent Antigua that we've carried many times in the past. Valic will have it posted as soon as it's in. Other coffees coming soon including several different Sumatran varietals.
One of the nicest Colombian decaf coffees just added to our offering list.
10/21/13 - No More Congo!!!
10/17/13 - Congo Kivu is now in stock. Those that are into extreme sports will really like this coffee. The ladies sorting the beans in this picture would agree, we're sure!
10/8/13 Coming in at the end of the week, DR Congo! This is an amazing coffee coming from a region we don't visit very often. DR Congo is surprisingly elegant with a unique complexity to the cup. We're expecting to have it up and posted before the weekend.
Also back in stock, the popular "La Lapa" from Costa Rica: an amazingly nice coffee at a great price.

8/24/12 - Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere - we finally were able to get more of this fantastic coffee. Get some before it runs out again, because it will be early Spring before the next harvest becomes available.

As soon as Valic gets a chance, we also have a new Kenya and a nice El Salvador coffee that need to be posted.
