New Coffee...Today!

Carrie Masek

Our first green coffee delivery of 2017 just arrived, and we are thrilled!  Our favorite coffee of the Pacific South Seas, Bali Kintamani, is here, along with more new crop Organic Dragon (it's been going fast!) and new crop Colombia Gran Galope.   Here's information on our three newest coffees:

Bali Kintamani: Organic, Rain Forest Alliance certified and delicious!  This naturally processed coffee features a full body, intense aroma and sweet, complex flavor-dried figs soaked in plum brandy-followed by a rich, lingering chcolate finish.  

Colombia Gran Galope: Grown in the Huila region of Colombia, Colombia Gran Galope has everything we look for in a good Colombian. It's a smooth, rich coffee with a medium-body, lively fruit notes and balancing sweetness.  This year's Gran Galope is particularly juicy and tangy with green grape topnotes, plum sweetness and luscious chocolate richness. 

Organic Dragon: Organic (of course!) and Rain Forest Allaince certified, Organic Dragon comes from Flores, the island of Komodo Dragons.  This full-bodied coffee features a sweet, malted barley aroma and the rich flavor of Bakers chocolate and toasted caramel. It's one of our favorite Indonesian coffee...and it has the picture of a dragon (Komodo-style) on the bag!   

Coming soon (maybe even this afternoon): A new microlot coffee from that will only be available at Coffee by the Roast! Check our blog tomorrow for more on this exciting new coffee.
