NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Our wonderful import/export partners Traviesa Coffee in Manizales have made a great support and distribution model for local Colombian farmers and we continue to get unusual microlots of smallholder growers. These exceptional coffees…usually represented at Badbeard's by Red, Yellow and Pink Bourbon, Geisha but also high-quality natural decaf and some conventional blends…are containerized and shipped directly to Portland and elsewhere in the US. Cupping scores at origin are always 85 and above but IMHO score higher here. The current Yellow Boubon just received today, 11/27, comes from producer Libardo Piedrahita Santa at his Finca La Esmeralda, in the village of Villafatima, Pitalito municipality. Sr. Santa has been growing for 15 years and tends about 20,000 shrubs at 1750 meters of elevation. During harvest season (September-November) only ripe cherry is picked, washed, fermented for 28 hours and then sun-dried. This microlot of 100%Yellow Bourbon evinces notes of citrus/orange, mango, pineapple, sweet. Prefer pourover methods for brewing, but acidity is not so high that espresso is not an option for our light-medium roast profile.

Barista extraordinaire Tyler Hauptman of Portland's Sweet Masterpiece Chocolates demonstrates how to prepare a proper latte using Badbeard's Symphony! blend coffee.

Special microlot Costa Rica Anaerobically-produced excellence Very psyched to have come across this unique coffee and found it to be MORE than everything it was cranked up to be. Producer Luis Campos has taken the super-solid caturra varietal to new heights by anaerobically producing it once it reaches a specific (26 Brix) ripeness on the shrub. Just ...more
New and different Ethiopia natural The Hadeso Natural Grade 1 from Guji just in to take the place of the delicious but all-too-scarce Hambela natural, which was a short-lived hit. We should be presenting the washed Hambela version in October...can't wait! Will post close to its arrival ...more
Meeting expectations and how! The just-arrived  Ethiopia Hamdela natural process and Peru Chasqui new crop are in and really excellent...Hambela a big, sweet fruit bomb, and the Peru even chocolatier and more fruit forward than last ...more
good to the last bean
We are such perfectionists we roast one bean at a time for the ultimate coffee experience! (OK, not really)
"Wow, what fast shipping ! I just ordered coffee from you Wednesday and it is already here in Ithaca, even before the 'best served after' date. Also the Sunrise Brazil beans are a great surprise. We will try them first."
