New Crop Coffees...

Carrie Masek

Spring is here, and that means the new crop of coffees from the Northern Hemisphere are starting to roll in!  Check our New Arrivals page for more information as the coffees arrive.  Here's a quick review of the coffees we've just received:

Guatemala Ceylan, organic and Rain Forest Alliance certified.  Guatemala Ceylan is a rich, balanced coffee, lively enough for first thing in the morning with rich, buttery finish.

Uganda Bugisi, also organic and Rain Forest Alliance certified.  A surprisingly gentle African. Uganda Bugisi has a sweet aroma, medium body and dried fruit sweetness. 

Kenya AA Kichwa Tembo.  Coffee connoisseurs prize Kenyans as the brightest coffee grown.  Kenya AA Kichwa Tembo has all the sparkling lemon and grapefruit topnotes you'd expect in a good Kenyan balanced with a floral aroma and lingering toffee sweetness.

Coming crop Costa Rica Tarrazu and Tanzania Ruvuma!
