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.

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.

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.

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.
