Bring on the Love
Last year was such a rollercoaster full of strong emotions, so let’s make this year full of one strong emotion: Love. Love for those we care about, love for the earth, and love for those we disagree with. The coffee world was impacted significantly last year, and we are ready to move forward. Like Rafiki said, “Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it or learn from it.”
With this in mind, we have seen small businesses genuinely struggle to survive, and many close their doors forever. We want to do the most we can to show our support.
Valentine’s Day Gifts
This weekend we will be hosting our very first Artisanal Market on Sunday, February 7th. There will be various unique gifts just in time for Valentine’s Day. Stop by and support entrepreneurs committed to producing original hand-crafted items. And, of course, coffee to keep you warm in this unpredictable climate.
We have also collaborated with the “Chocolate Empress,” Carolina Quijano from Exquisito Chocolates, to bring you gift boxes. Carolina roasts and grinds cacao beans with the same dedication to her craft as we have set for our coffee beans. She sources only the best and most ethical cacao beans, and it shows in the finished product. You can now pre-order these gift sets here. Available for pick-up and delivery.
Featured Monthly Roast
We are celebrating this month of love and friendship with a new roast. We have received a new lot from Ethiopia Sidamo.
Sidamo producers are known for “garden coffee,” which is grown in kebeles (small villages). The coffee is planted at low density, ranging from 1000 to 1800 trees per hectare. All of the coffee produced under this system is agronomically organic – but most are not certified as such.
Our Sidamo has notes of chocolate, blueberry, lavender, and vanilla with medium body and bright acidity. This bean is ideal for espresso and your French press – however, it can be overpowered by too much milk, so hold off on using Sidamo for your latte or cappuccino.
