Coffees from South America still the freshest and most-recent in the Americas, and so happy to be bringing in this luscious washed Bolivia Peaberry from the outstanding CENAPROC cooperative in Caranavi. CENAPROC has produced many award-winning coffees over the years, including the Best of Bolivia (which was discontinued in 2004) and this is a rich, well-balanced fruit and chocolate excursion in your cup!

New coffees will be arriving in abundance next week...assuming those containers can be found in the vast tracts of real estate in the West Coast ports (THANK YOU SEQUESTER!) Said goodbye to the last of Colombia Excelso today and will be looking to a tasty replacement from the Huila area. Stay tuned!

He robbed eight banks in Northern and Central California from November to February this year, but the "Badbeard Bandit" was finally nabbed by the FBI this March 27. The bandit, who wore a costume with a cheap imitation beard to hide his identity from security cameras, was identified as Gerardo Orozco Lopez of Half Moon Bay, CA. FBI spokesperson Gina Swankie reported the 28-year-old carried a weapon, but she refused to speculate that his crime spree was a result of his java jones for more Badbeard's Coffee.
While a man may go to great lengths to support his Badbeard's Coffee habit, Orozco just took it too far.

The Colombia Narino Peaberry in the multi-roast profile is on sale at all 8 Markets of Choice in Oregon thru January 24th. It's a really nice single origin espresso at a 27 second pull at 200 degrees. I've been gluttonously drinking it every morning in my Bona Vita dripper for a week now, love it!

'Tis the season for the freshest harvests originating from South America, especially Peru, Colombia and Brazil. The dreaded Roya seems to have eluded these coffees and they're excellent.
