Just in time for the holidays, we bring your our first Christmas blend. With single origin coffees from Nicaragua, Papua New Guinea, and Ethiopia, we sought spice and warmth. It should please a house full of coffee drinkers. Roasting and shipping December 2nd. Here’s our Black Friday coupon – enter “thanks09″ at checkout for $15 off any order of $100 or more.

This coffee is snappy and fruity – think of the fragrance from a fresh peeled orange, then add guava and star fruit. The acidity is crisp and balanced. We roast this just to second crack. The outside of the bean is a lovely mahogany color – not dark or oily. There’s enough spice to make this a complex and enticing coffee. We have a very small quantity so order yours today!
We’re pleased to present the Hario kettle, a great way to boil water to the right temperature, then direct it very precisely over the grounds as you make coffee. In conjunction with a Bee House dripper, you can easily and quickly make coffee for one or two people without a french press or coffee maker. The Bee House dripper will fit on most mugs and carafes and holds a standard cone filter.
We’ll also have available a larger porcelain dripper to make 6-8 cups of coffee, along with new insulated stainless steel carafes from Frieling, in the same design as their illustrious French presses. More info to come.
We’re working on a video of how to make the best cup of pour-over coffee possible. Look for details soon.
The Chicago Tribune reviewed 4 alternative ways to brew coffee. First up was the Vacuum Pot. The Trib was smart to recommend the Bodum Santos vacuum pot. We agree with them – it’s sleek, interesting, and makes great coffee. Check out the Trib article.
We’ve got a very special coffee coming up this week. Did we mention 100% of the profit from this roast is going to a very special cause? We’re doing a limited roast for this on Friday, August 21st. We’ll be roasting up this fine coffee and shipping it out the same day. Expect milk chocolate sweetness, balanced fruit tones of apricot and peach, and balanced acidity. It has a complex yet clean aftertaste, with slight notes of spice (Côtes du Rhône, perhaps?). The nutty taste is pronounced, with piquant filbert & walnut. This makes a delicious french press in the morning. Details to follow, but we’re donating 100% of the proceeds from this roast to a very special villa in Nicaragua for vulnerable children who formerly lived on the dump outside of Managua. Stay tuned and be sure to reserve your bag as we have extremely limited quantities. When I say limited, I mean limited. All those green beans could fit in the back of a Smart Car.
