constantly changing as we seek out the freshest

specialty beans throughout the year.

Our roaster, Justin, pushes the boundaries of the craft

by developing a unique roast to maximize the flavor and aroma

of each individual batch of coffee beans.

We sell our fresh whole coffee beans in

12 oz bags, and offer ground coffee upon request.

Papua New Guinea Organic Purosa AX FTO 

 

Our Papua New Guinea Purosa AX is grown in the Eastern Highlands provinces, specifically the Ivangoi, Purosa and Okapa valleys.

 

Grown by over 3,000 farmers, this bean is certified as Fair Trade Organic (FTO) through the Highland Organic Agricultural Cooperative.

This coffee is excellent for blending and espresso,

but please drink it straight too, as it shines as a straight single origin!

It takes a dark roast very well and puffs up nicely after

a friendly roasting for a great flavor profile.

 

This bean is very well processed and much cleaner in the cup

than most Sumatras and other Indonesian coffees.

 

This is a truly wonderful coffee and is a regular player in our collection.

Cupping Notes: Cane sugar sweetness, medium acidity and creamy body with

sweet caramel overtones and a slight cocoa note on the finish.

Ethiopia Kembata Natural Grade 1

This variety comes from a farm located in the Durame Village of Kembata, Ethiopia, and is a perfect example of a naturally processed coffee.

It is an Heirloom variety, and like other Ethiopians, is packed full of fruity notes

of strawberry and blueberry with a smooth milk chocolate finish.

 

Grown at 2100 meters above sea level, this plant thrives where

the soil is extremely fertile and ideal for growing high-quality coffee beans.

 

The farmers incorporate a 36-48-hour fermentation process in the wet mill

and then dry the unwashed cherries under the sun in raised beds

for 15-21 days to ensure they are ready. 

 

The resulting coffee is an extremely complex cup

marked with notes of blueberry and strawberry. 

Cupping notes: Blueberry, Strawberry, and Milk Chocolate.

Only select Arabica varieties such as Catuaí, Mundo Novo,

Acayá, and Catucaí are grown in the plantation nursery

which adheres to strict sustainable principles.

it is also known for its innovative farming approaches, which include

modern agricultural techniques that are based on scientific research, implemented on the farm and shared with the coffee community.

Mexico Chiapas Turquesa HG EP

Chiapas Turquesa takes its name from the precious stone-

turquoise- the color of which is spread across the regions 

in its incredible waters and vast skies.

 

This coffee is grown across the region at altitudes between 900 and 1,100

meters, and is characterized by large bean sizes and a round, balanced cup.

 

For decades, Chiapas has been the center of political and ethnic conflicts.

 

The Zapatista movement prevented any large coffee farms from coming into existence due to their demands for indigenous rights and land access. 

Consequently, coffee has been cultivated mainly by smallholders,

often descendants of Indigenous tribes.

 

These coffee producers plant, harvest, and prepare the coffee by hand,

sparing no effort to produce coffees they can feel proud of.

To help ensure that producers receive a fair price, our distributor works closely with the exporters to support these communities with social projects.

Additionally, the exporters use their own transportation infrastructure

to bring the producers’ coffees to market.

The coffee harvest season is December through March.

All coffee is received in parchment, checked for quality and transported 

to a high-tech dry mill in Veracruz. The quality-control standard for this

bean allows for only 15 imperfections per 300 grams. After a second quality

check, the coffee is cleaned, milled, and sorted to be prepared for export.

Cupping notes: Milk chocolate, nutty, grape, citrus; medium body, cools sweet.

Rwanda Maboro Washed

This Rwandan bean is sourced by La Minita from the Western

Highlands of the country on the shores of Lake Kivu.

 

La Minita works directly with selected coffee farmers and washing stations, who purchases fruit directly from hundreds of small farmers.

 

Cupping Notes: Balance of bright acidity and full-bodied. 

A taste of red apple, hibiscus, dried fig,

berry fruitiness, sweet orange, and cocoa.

Costa Rica La Magnolia Tres Rios

The La Magnolia is one of the finest Tres Rios coffees available.

It is a beautifully prepped, remarkably well-rounded,

exceptionally well-balanced, complex coffee

that presents a sparkling, clean, lemon-orange brightness

with chocolate and nutty overtones that carry through

to the long, complex finish. 

 

If you're in search of a special Costa Rican coffee (and even if you're not),

this may be the one.

Cupping Notes: Chocolatey, nutty, buttery & fruity.

Bolivian Organic Caranavi La Paz FTO

on land that rises to 8,500 feet above sea level.

These typica and bourbon coffee beans are cultivated in

the tropical growing regions of Bolivia below a magnificent forest,

coming from 41 small farms averaging about three acres each.

These indigenous farmers are native to the land, which borders the

Andes mountains and rain forest jungle of the Amazon.

The adjacent land is protected by the government, and the

indigenous groups treat their land as if it were protected as well.

A majority have been certified Smithsonian Bird Friendly,

and all have been certified Organic.

STEEP eXXXpresso Blend

Most espresso brewed in our country these days is used for espresso drinks 

like lattes and cappuccinos, rather than for sipping shots of pure espresso.

 

However; most of the espresso blends are designed towards the

goal of pulling a shot for sipping, not for blending.

We refined our roast to create the Steep Chuter Latte Blend,

which pulls a rich, sweet, chocolatey espresso shot that

absolutely blooms in a cup of steamed milk.

 

Minimal crema, but crema gets lost in an espresso drink anyway, right?

Too good to keep to ourselves, we decided to share it with all the rest of you espresso drink aficionados.

For those of you who prefer flavored espresso drinks, you will find

this blend works equally as well using flavored coffee creamers available

at your local supermarket, although it does get VERY sweet.

Give this blend a try at home to enhance the enjoyment of your

favorite espresso drink!

Cupping Notes: Rich & Sweet. Chocolatey & buttery.
