by badbeard 15. January 2014 00:27

Expecting a motherload tomorrow (Wednesday, Jan 15) of stuff including new offerings from Sulawesi (Toraja Grade 1)...sweet, spicy and fragrant and an outstanding Sidama Shilcho washed process, fruity love very akin to some of my recent Yirgacheffes. More Colombia Narino Peaberry to shore up the stash...y'all are cleaning me out, especially in Portland! Thanks!----sincerely, "Heisenbeard"

Colombia on special at Markets of Choice

by badbeard 11. January 2014 23:26

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.

We disavow any affiliation with The Badbeard Bandit!

by badbeard 17. December 2013 06:02

What happens when coffee sales fall and Badbeard goes bad? He starts robbing banks! Well, we haven't reached that level of desperation yet, but apparently Northern California banks in and around Sacramento are being targeted by a mysterious robber sporting a truly heinous beard as a disguise, who local news organizations have dubbed "The Bad Beard Bandit". And while the bandit has not produced a weapon in any of the robberies, police consider him armed and dangerous. While the banks have not revealed how much booty the bandit has made off with, we know he's not there for the free coffee.

The FBI is requesting assistance in locating the suspected Badbeard wannabe...but we think he just needs to switch to decaf. 

No, he is not affiliated with Badbeard's Coffee!

November arrivals: Sumatra Tabu Jamu and Yirgacheffe Kochere coming

by badbeard 10. November 2013 17:44

With supplies of our Sumatra Bodhi Peaberry and Honey Process Mandheling dwindling we thought it provident to bring back the Sidikalang (Sumatra) Tabu Jamu, which we enjoy drinking as much as saying over and over. Arrival 11/12/13 with a fresh stash of the exceptional Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere. The latter is Grade 1 (we've had Grade 2 previously) and quite similar in cup profile to the vaunted Blue Nile Yirg (supply down to about 15 pounds...first come first serve!)which so many have raved about to me.

My goodness, killer Ethiopia Yirgacheffe natural and Guatemala Fraijanes

by badbeard 26. October 2013 11:10

Two new arrivals Oct. 23, the amazing fruit monster "Aricha" dry process Yirgacheffe, one of the best ever from that bountiful land, and a chocolate bar-in-a-cup "Palo Alto Azul" from Finca Agua Tibia in the Fraijanes Plateau region outside of Guatemala City. The Guat will be available at local Market of Choice in Oregon in the Savories special at the beginning of November.

New arrivals 9-17-13....very special coffees! Yum!

by badbeard 17. September 2013 23:28

Three stellar coffees from Panama (Los Lajones Estate Honey Process), El Salvador (Finca La Arada Pacas Honey Process) and Sumatra (Bodhi Peaberry). All exceptional and very limited quantities. Not to be missed...thanks to new contact-direct trade importer Bodhi Leaf Trading in Placentia, guys rock! Honey processing has become a very popular and significant development in Central America and we want to encourage these extraordinary farmers for their commitment to exceptional cup quality and sustainable farming practices. A cool video of the process can be seen here, Graciano Cruz of HiU coffee in Panama & El Salvador is a great proponent of both honey and natural processing, which are significantly environmentally impacting in water management. Graciano we salute you!

Exceptional coffees from Sumatra and Guatemala, 7-31-13

by badbeard 30. July 2013 15:40

Excited to offer two really primo coffees, the long-awaited Sumatra "Honey Process" Mandheling and crema de la crema Guat "Finca El Limonar". We have shied away from estate coffees from Guatemala the last couple of years as they were atypically underwhelming, but Limonar is a green-light for sure. Very pleasant and interesting drinking experiences await you.
