Lost Dutchman, The Legend (a background to our namesake)
Updates and News:
6/15/2015 - We've received numerous references to how we tape zip lock bags full of green coffee closed for shipping. While most of our fellow home coffee roasters seem to agree it's a necessary evil because they can be so hard to open, they understand why we have to do it. Going forward, we are folding the packing tape over about 1/4 inch to provide a way to peel the tape off. If you're someone that would rather take your chances with the bags coming open during shipment and request "no tape, please", please allow us to try this on your next order. It's not that hard for us to pack your coffee this way and may just help prevent unwanted surprises.
5/23/15 - Guatemala Bella Carmona and Sumatra SWP Decaf have been added to our offering sheet.
5/19/15 - Coming in a few days, Guatemala Bella Carmona. Arguably the best of the best from Guatemala. We had to poke around quite a bit to get it. High on chocolaty notes, very clean cup and a medium body. Valic will have it posted by Friday.
Also worthy of mention, we'll be getting in a very fresh batch of Sumatran Decaf, C02 processed. Our opinion has always been that the C02 decaffeinating process is the very best method, next to water processing, for retaining maximum flavor characteristics. This coffee also makes for some of the best espresso.
Not to stop here, also a nice Colombian from Narino. More on this sweet coffee when it comes in at the end of this week.
4/23/15 - Just in - Sumatra Super Peaberry - a popular favorite amongst peaberry-loving coffee roasters.
Ethiopia Lomi Tasha - an elegant new crop coffee.
Ethiopia Harrar - Mesela - another very fresh coffee bean right from the cradle (birth place) of coffee.
Also in but not yet posted (where's Valic?) - Nicaragua:Los Congos: Pacamara Cascara - For those of you who remember, this is the rich flavored coffee pulp used to make a coffee "tea". We'll try to get this posted by the weekend.
4/20/15 - Incoming - Some really nice Ethiopian coffees. We're hoping to get them up on our green coffee offering sheet before next weekend. Also, stay tuned for an old favorite - Guatemala Bella Carmona. This is still a couple of weeks out, but we'll have some in stock soon.
3/7/15 - Just in - Kenya Kiambu AA. A solidly-nice Kenyan at a reasonable price.
Also, Mexico Custapec is back!
2/1/15 - Just in (and posted): Colombia Popayan and Papua New Guinea Mile High (AA). Coming within a couple of weeks, a new Kenyan and by popular demand, Bella Carmona from Guatemala.
12/21/14 - New arrivals now posted -
Guatemala Huehuetenango - Palmira
Mexico Chiapas Decaf
12/18/14 - New incoming coffees - It's been a very busy season and some of our coffee stash is low. The good news is more is incoming later today. Among the newcomers are a couple of nice Mexican coffees, one is the popular Custapec that we've frequently carried in the past, the other is a CO2 processed decaf. We're also pleased to announce that the Colombia Tolima we're getting is directly sourced from a fantastic farm called Sweet Latitude. While the bean size is relatively small - around 16 screen, the quality and flavor is among the best Colombian coffees we've ever cupped.
Also, a new Guatemalan. Valic should have them posted by tomorrow.
11/27/14 Happy Thanksgiving!
New Crop Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has arrived. Valic has it posted on our Green Coffee Offering page.
11/20/14 Coming Next Week - A new Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. The New Crop is starting to arrive from this region, and looks like it should be a good year for Ethiopians. This coffee will be available next week.
We have several new Colombians in and will have them posted as soon as Valic gets them up.
8/30/14 Coming soon - We've said it before, but this time we really mean it. An exotic tasting coffee from Bali. Should be here next week sometime.
8/17/14 - The macaw is back. A nice coffee from Costa Rica - "La Lapa". This has been a popular offering in the past, so we are happy to have it in stock again.
8/15/14 - Just in - A rock solid Harrar from Ethiopia "Deep Blue". We're not sure where the name comes from. Perhaps because there are deep blueberry notes? They are deep (the blueberries), but not overly pronounced like the Yirgacheffe Kocherie we stocked a couple months ago (more of that on the way too). Rather, this Harrar is dry-processed coffee exhibiting cocoa-like, buttery mouth feel with hints of flower blossoms. Read more......(it is also available on our green coffee page).
8/5/14 - We now have green coffee available at our local cafe. Lots of folks have been asking for it, so for now we have limited selections available there during our normal hours of operation (7 days a week!) and plan on expanding the selection on a weekly basis. For information on our cafe's location and hours, please click here.
7/16/14 - Guatemala Antigua Acate has been added to our green coffee offering page. Antigua's will be getting scarce this year due mostly due to weather.
Other incoming coffees - a new El Salvador (finally!) and a new Mandheling from Sumatra.
07/02/14 - Colombia Huila Palmero added to our green coffee offering page. Valic's working on getting the Antigua up.
