Whole Bean Coffees.
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.
Ethiopian Dry-Process Yirgacheffe Wote Konga.
Medium-light roast. (Map link.) Typica/Arabica varietal, grown between 1800-2200 meters.
Our current natural Ethiopian is really great, exhibiting notes of wild berries, chocolate and whiskey.
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.
Costa Rica Monte Rosa.
Medium roast. Grown at 1400 meters. Monte Rosa is the farm of Oscar Moreira and his wife Lydia Matamoros. Monte Rosa is situated in the western valley of Costa Rica, one of the most respected regions in Costa Rica for producing high-yield, specialty grade coffee. A big and bold cup with notes of cinnamon, dark chocolate and red fruit. Really tasty!
Supplied by Thrive: "THRIVE Farmers gives the farmer direct access to the marketplace for his coffee, providing economic participation at each step of his crop’s accrued value."
Far East origins.
Sumatra Royal Badger.
In early 2012 we scored a 91-point rating on one of these "Badger" Sumatras from Coffee Review, and our current offering from this region is the best one yet. (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!
