Our friend Mayra Orellana-Powell, who herself comes from Santa Elena, Honduras, embarked on a very special mission to aid coffee farmers there. Her story can be found here

Coming week of 6/29 new arrivals

The coffers continue to swell with great coffee. Samples of favored Central Americans have been fairly middling-to-disappointing but we landed a prize, a microlot from Honduras, Santa Elena Catracha and farmer Adan Hernandez Amaya (several members of the family having eponymous farms under the Catracha banner). It's an excellent, high-scoring (90) Central with an even more excellent story which I will post on Moinday when added to the website!

Also getting in a very nice single origin decaf Mountain Water Process from Colombia...sweet and good fruit notes. Stay tuned!

Spotlight on Ethiopia

by badbeard 23. June 2015 09:44

Keffa Coffee's three new crop offerings arrived yesterday, June 22, and are all amazing as advertised! We also have new crop natural process Brazil OurCoffees "Sugar" edition, from producer Fazenda Santana. Yummy, nutty and chocolatey.

Patience a frustrating virtue, abundant Ethiopian coffees coming...

Fans of our Ethiopian focus will, like us, have to wait just another long week or so for the arrival of three GREAT coffees from our partner Samuel Demisse of Keffa Coffee...natural process Ardi, washed Limu Grade 1 and Sidama Grade 1. Also coming new crop Brazil OurCoffees Sugar, which is currently on the water approaching the West Coast terminals. Good times here in anticipation.

June arrivals...nice!

by badbeard 31. May 2015 22:06

June 1 is a good day as we receive a new luscious Kenya AB from the Gatugi Factory (wet mill), more Yirgacheffe Aricha natural process, Burundi Dukorere Ikawa and organic Java Taman Dadar. New crop Ethiopians are are tad delayed until the middle/end of June but will feature some extraordinary coffees from our partner Samuel Demisse of Keffa Coffee.

Continuing our presentation of some of the finest Colombian coffees...check out new EXTREMELY LIMITED Granja La Esperanza Yellow Bourbon natural process and Red Boubon honey process...simply amazing! Colombia Agustino Forest, one of our fave washed coffees, also is back in stock. New washed Ethiopia Yirgacheffe from Konga Zone is a fabulous addition too.

Friday, April 10 2015 arrivals, Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Natural Process Aricha and Sumatra Takengon

by badbeard 9. April 2015 08:53

Aricha is back! Fruit bomb number two of the season, even juicier than the offering from 2 years ago. Our Gelana Abaya natural is all gone but we're thrilled to have yet another exceptional Yirgacheffe taking its place in the rotation. Sumatra Takengon Mandheling from the family-owned and -operated  Jagong Mill, nice sweet notes of butterscotch, chocolate and leather unique to the region.

More freshies, Colombia Pacamara and Brazil "Sugar"

by badbeard 12. March 2015 14:32

Champing at the bit awaiting the new Colombia Cafe Granja La Esperanza Pacamara Honey process...a superb exotic. From my new fave rock-star producer in all of South America...devilishly rich coffee. Also new/Late Harvest Brazil OurCoffees "Sugar", an extraordinary cup for the $$$, reflective of just how intense a single-origin espresso can become with the right beans. C'mon down to the Badbeard's online emporium.
