- ROASTING NOW - TANZANIA. Sweet banana, herbal spice, Mellow (Full description soon) COSTA RICA. (Trinidad) Lemon, toffee nut. (Full description soon.) BURUNDI. This one is a little different. We chose Burundi Kibumbu as our next coffee because of its close proximity to Rwanda. In contrast, our Burundi is a lighter city+ roast with bright lemon notes. Underlying flavors of oats and black cherry with a tart finish. If you are looking for an exciting coffee, you will enjoy this one hot or iced! - ARCHIVE - BRAZIL. (natural peaberry) When the fruit of a coffee bean is allowed to dry before it is removed it is refered to as natural or dry process. This method lowers acidity and allows time for the coffee to soak up more flavor from the "cherry". Only about %5 of coffee beans develop peaberrys. Peaberry is a rare mutation where a coffee fruit only contains one, round bean packed full of flavor. These characteristics in combination create a very exotic, flavorful coffee. Our Brazil has strong sweet plum and grape notes with a pleasant underlying spicy clove. This coffee leaves you happy with a long smooth finish. COSTA RICA. If you're looking for a solid, well rounded coffee you'll love this one! Our full city Costa Rica Chirripo is packed full of sweet nutty notes. A coffee that tastes exactly how you want it to. The dark chocolate body without an offputing smoke, or char taste that usually accompanies it. Subtle smooth berry notes and a long, warm finish. This coffee will not disappoint! RWANDA. Our Rwanda Rulindo Cocatu is a fantastically balanced coffee. It has a full, rich body of milk chocolate and black tea. Subtle, lingering notes of kiwi and orange citrus, with a sweet candy finish. this is a must try for any coffee lover.
Our coffee is sourced through the Farm Gate program!
