SingleOriginsAll coffees begin as a single origin coffee or varietal that can be traced to a single country, region, farm, field or even “lot”.  We sample many different lots of coffees to find the ones that best meets our exacting standards, and we develop roast profiles that bring out the “best” qualities of the coffee in the cup.

 

Sustainable Single OriginsWe are a USDA-certified organic roaster. Sustainability, as used in the coffee industry, refers to coffee that is produced using farming, harvesting and business practices that ensure the livelihood of the farmers and the farm itself. This helps to ensure that the farms, farmers and workers can afford and want to continue growing great tasting coffees for years to come.

 

LightBlendsOur Light blends are bright, mellow and creamy. They are ideal for customers looking for a lively coffee that does not linger too long on the palette, and many of our our light blends are popular as breakfast blends.

 

Medium BlendsOur medium blends offer well-balanced acidity and body. They tend to be more textured and slightly creamier body than our light blends, with a taste that lingers longer on the palette.  More multi-dimensional and savory, our medium blends are among some of our most popular blends.

 

Dark BlendsOur dark roasted coffees tend to have fully developed roast profiles with low acidity and heavy syrupy body. The thick body and nuanced tastes of chocolates and spicy notes balance the bittersweet with the sweet lingering on the palette without unpleasant bitter notes. Many of our dark blends are enjoyed as after dinner or dessert coffees.

 

Sustainable BlendsUsing our exceptional tasting single origin varietals, we have created several popular organic and sustainable blends that share many of the characteristics of our conventional coffees. These blends can include coffees that are certified organic, Fair Trade or RainForest Alliance.
