COLOMBIA Tolima del Rio Fair Trade Organic – What makes Colombian coffees so desirable? In a word: balance. They are smooth, with brightness on the back of the tongue and a full, satisfying finish. If someone came from another planet and wanted to know what coffee is, perhaps a cup of Colombia would provide the best answer.
MEXICO Serrano Organic – This is a supremely quaffable, aromatic coffee that begs a second cup. High elevations and an unwavering commitment to organic practices is the common bond among the Serranos group. There are 200 small farms of 5 hectares (10 acres) or less. As a result of their organic practices, a protective buffer is provided for more than 800 plant species and 390 bird species that make their home in the El Triunfo biosphere reserve.
TANZANIA Mbeya Peaberry – This coffee possesses many of the enviable characteristics of an estate Kenya. I love Kenyas but for many the winey acidity can be a bit over the top. Tanzania offers a more balanced cup with a smooth, lingering finish. The rounder shaped peaberry, formed from the maturation of one seed per cherry rather than the typical two seeds, is meticulously sorted during the milling process for its distinct flavor profiles.
JAVA Estate Jampit – From the Indonesian island of the same name, these crops were planted by the Dutch 300 years ago, in the 17th century. This coffee has a smooth, medium full–bodied, thick flavor. This Java is sourced from the Jampit Estate located on the island of Java, Indonesia. In the 17th Century Java coffee was first cultivated in low lying areas, but by the 19th Century coffee leaf rust had destroyed production, forcing new coffee cultivation into the highlands where high altitudes and volcanic soil provide perfect growing conditions.
A lively brew from Central and South America with brilliant flavors and a wonderful finish…a perfect complement to a gorgeous sunrise.
A 50/50 blend of high grown ‘mauka’ Kona with Central American coffees. The goal is to complement the delicate Kona flavor components without overwhelming them. Our sunrise blend has brilliant flavor, balance and a delicate aroma.
The Longberry region is in the central-eastern part of the country. This coffee is processed in the traditional ‘unwashed’ style which is also called ‘natural’. The flavor is unique … wild, winy and racy. Many would argue that this is where coffee originated.
Price per 1/2 lb. YEMEN Mocca Hawari Ecotact – This coffee is sourced from family owned plots located in the Al-Haimah districts in the Sana’a governorate within the western highlands of Yemen, parallel to the Red Sea. Yemen is perhaps the most historic coffee growing region in the world, second only to Ethiopia, with a lineage spanning more than 2,000 years. Coffee production continues today with many of the same traditions dating back to the 15th century, like drying coffee naturally in the cherry on the rooftops of houses perched on the edges of steep mountain ridges. Mocca Haimi is the product of 23 producers who work closely with an export company called Pearl of Tehama. Through the collaboration, small producers have learned processing techniques to ensure consistency in their coffee.
