Whole Bean Coffees.
Ethiopian Natural Hachira.
Medium roast. For a limited time, enjoy this precious selection prepared with Skill and Care. Bursting forth in the various Fruited and Chocolate-like Flavorways. Special coffee from our friends at Ninety Plus.
Ethiopian Washed Kemgin.
Medium roast. Another Ninety Plus coffee. Less expensive, but not much less in the cup! A delicate and delicious cup presenting notes of peach, caramel, jasmine and Earl Grey tea.
Black Label Espresso.
Black Label is our house blend, forgiving in all situations, all types of drinks. 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.
We've recently reformulated Black Label a bit, adding in some Kenya, which really rounds out the cup. If you miss Code Brown, you'll be a lot happier now. If you have no idea what we're talking about, you'll still like it!
Tribal Medicine Espresso.
Tribal Medicine is a tagalong from our old shop, Coffee Emergency. 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.
Kenya AA Kichwa Tembo Top Lot.
Light roast. Masai Mara, near Nairobi, Kenya. (Map link).
Big bodied, tomatoey, twinkly acidity, very complex. What can we say, it's Kenya.
Ethiopian Dry-Process Sidamo Adem Chilcho.
Medium-light roast. (Map link.) Heirloom varietal, grown between 1750-2000 meters.
Our natural Sidamo of the moment is everything you'd expect, with plenty of fruit and sparkle. Berries, citrus zest, chocolate. Delicious!
Latin American origins.
Colombian Huila Alto del Obispo.
Medium roast. Alto Del Obispo is an assocition of 25 coffee farmers near the town of San Agustin in Southern Huila, Colombia. Together they have about 80 hectares in coffee production or an average of roughly 3 hectares per farm. (Map link.)
The most exciting coffee we've had in a while! Thick chocolate body, a bit vegetal/peppery, juicy sweetness. This is a very complex cup, and a very special Colombian. Do give it a try while it's around.
Guatemala Finca Palmira-Naranjito.
Medium roast. This coffee hails from southern Guatemala, even further south than Antigua and not far from the El Salvador border (map link). Tangy cherry, dark chocolate, cola, nutty.
Far East origins.
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!
