Whole Bean Coffees.
Black Label Espresso.
Black Label is our house espresso blend, forgiving in all situations, all types of drinks. Very easy to get consistent, creamy shots; not fussy about grind, temp, tamp, etc.
A mix of Latin American, African and Indonesian coffees, roasted to be consistently satisfying either on its own or buried under a bit of milk. Clean, a little roasty, sumptuous crema, unpretentious, delicious.
Tribal Medicine Espresso.
This mostly-Ethiopian blend is a big ol' crema bomb, full of fruit, with a nice low end provided by a little dose of Sumatra. This blend can be just a little quirky on the pour, and it's not the most conventional espresso flavor profile, but once you get it dialed in, it's a very exciting cup. Slightly darker roast than Black Label. Ethiopia makes all the difference!
Ethiopian Dry-Process Yirgacheffe Gedeo.
Medium-light roast. (Map link.) Indigenous cultivars, grown between 1800-2000 meters.
Great Ethiopians right now! Produced by approximately 700 small coffee producers organized around the Chelba mill in the Yirgacheffe District Ethiopia. Ripe cherries are carefully selected at the Chelba mill and immediately placed on raised beds and dried over a period of 15 to 20 days. Wild berry, melon, coconut, chocolate and whiskey.
Latin American origins.
Colombian Huila Agustino Forest.
Medium roast. Caturra and Colombia cultivars. Produced by members of COOAGUSTINOS, which is an association of approximately 800 small coffee producers from the San Agustín municipality and other communities in the department of Huila, Colombia.(Map link.)
Big and bold, fudge, tobacco, caramel, carrot juice.
Costa Rica Cafe Vida.
Medium roast. Grown at 1,200-1,800 meters. Coope Tarrazu RL was founded in 1960 with a capital investment of $5,800 from 228 small coffee growers. Today, they run the biggest wet mill of Costa Rica, processing more than 110,000 bags of green coffee from 3,000 producers. About 85% of the producers affiliated to the coop harvest 4 hectares or less. Clean, light body, red fruit, toffee, juice.
Far East origins.
Sumatra Royal Badger.
In 2012 we scored a 91-point rating from Coffee Review on one of these "Badger" Sumatras, and these Red Goni selections from the Indonesian island have been rock-solid for us, a daily drip-coffee standby. (Map link). This coffee is something beyond typical Sumatra Mandhelings...a rich, complex cup that will leave you wondering if you're drinking a great African or Central. The standard Sumatran "damp earth" is in there, but it's accompanied by notes of fudgy chocolate, cedar, vanilla, fruit. Mind-blowing coffee.
We offer Saratoga at our drip coffee station every day, and go through many, many pots of this blend. A secret blend of mostly Latin American beans, roasted a little way into second crack for a big, bold, dark cup. If that's not enough for you, keep scrolling down.
This is essentially the same blend as Saratoga, but roasted even darker. That is to say, very dark. Beans display oil. If you *really* like it dark, this is probably dark enough for you. We hope.
This is also the source of our bottled toddy, which we sell faster than we can make it at the shop.
Mexico Water-Processed Decaf.
Medium roast. Decaf leaves us feeling a little empty inside, staring into infinite whiteness, senses dulled. Our current decaf is a straight Mexican Chiapas, decaffeinated in Mexico with the "mountain water process". It is as good as you can expect any decaf to be!
