Roastery bursting with goodies as promised. The Burundi Dukorere Ikawa and Rwanda Dukunde Kawa are quite special, as are the new Yirgacheffes, natural process bursting with fruity goodness and the washed Grade 2 among the best we've ever tasted. Organic Java Taman Dadar is back for a long run for fans of thicker-bodied brews. New Kenyas being selected for shipment this week...abbondanza and Kenya Kahawa!

by badbeard 17. January 2015 09:02

You will soon see the Rwanda and Burundi offerings on the website, but if you have any serious or passing interest in the vicissitudes and technicalities of coffee production in East Africa, I urge you to read this excellent piece by my friends Thompson Owen and Chris Schooley.

New December arrivals and Uber-Special rare Xmas gift opportunity

by badbeard 11. December 2014 15:59

The roastery filled with new seasonal goodies from Ethiopia, Brazil and Colombia. Looking for an affordably luxurious gift for your favorite coffee geek? Try the microlot organic Colombia Granja La Esperanza natural process, a sensational cup. Another organic offering is from our partner importers Sustainable Harvest of Portland...Ethiopia Sidamo Wotona Bultuma, a washed process fruit bomb from the SCFCU (Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union). We have choco-nutty-fruity new Late Harvest Brazils from OurCoffees (Copermonte Cooperative in Minas Gerais)..."Sugar" and "Dry", the latter more reminiscent of Central America and Africa. However you swing it, Happy Holidays!

Quick note on CLEVER COFFEE DRIPPER and Filtropa #4 filters coming!

by badbeard 18. November 2014 08:32

The popular Clever dripper will be out of stock until the end of this week of November 17. We are bringing in the Holland-made Filtropa #4 paper filters for the Clever or your favorite cone dripper. These babies are in our opinion superior to the standard #4 Melitta or Melitta-clone filters...better construction and negligible paper taste, and hold up better if you do a "pre-rinse" before adding your ground coffee.

Soon to come, 11/5/14...Guatemala and Sumatra

by badbeard 4. November 2014 08:29

We will be receiving two lovely coffees this Friday and ready to ship...Rainforest Alliance-certified Guatemala Antigua Finca Medina and Sumatra Wahana Estate semi-washed process. Excited about both!

Kenya AA "Super Duper" at Market of Choice Oct. 31

by badbeard 30. October 2014 09:33

Halloween the perfect day to introduce this scary-great Kenyan coffee to all of the Markets of Choice in Oregon. Check the ad in the Savories flyer or just go see your coffee section! We were sad to see importer Robinson Mutiso leave Portland back for his homebase in Chicago but can't wait for his return.

New arrivals 9/23/14 from East Africa...stunning!

by badbeard 23. September 2014 19:22

Excited to be able to share some really great stuff from Ethiopia (Ch'ire Sidama and Yirgacheffe Gutiti) and, exclusive to the West Coast, Kenya AA Kianjuri Co-Op. In the humdrum of your morning you really need to try something that represents the finest coffee farming around. And many thanks to Benjamin Mutiso of exporter Star Coffee Kenya and his wonderful son, my bud Robinson, now of Chicago and the world of coffee importing!

End of summer arrivals, back to (coffee) school y'all!

Please check out new offerings from Brazil, Ethiopia, Java and El Salvador! Yumbo all, especially excited to have a honey-process El Sal in da house again!
