This espresso was born from a wish to offer a single origin espresso that we could pull from a single roast level and have the best espresso shot. We’ve been pulling shots of Papua New Guinea Baroida for a long time, and it works so nicely as a single roast level espresso. It is a naturally sweet, bright and complex espresso yielding rich, syrupy notes of dried cherry, apricot and spice.

Single origin espresso is a wonderful way to experience every flavor and nuance that a varietal has to offer. The smooth, tangy and fruity qualities of this single-origin coffee are magnified in this simple, single roast level espresso shot. The unique acidity produced by wet processing in combination with the natural body of a hand-cultivated South Pacific coffee, renders this easily approachable espresso irresistible. Because the beans are fully washed, this varietal also tends to yield a very clean, consistent cup quality.

The distinctive qualities of this espresso shine through as a straight shot. It’s acidity and aftertaste practically disappear in milk based drinks, which reflect the same soft, creamy, delicate body of the non-espresso version of the varietal. The unique flavor of Papua New Guinea is a wonderful addition to any cafe menu. Wet processing and Indonesian varietals rarely mix, and the flavors that are produced by the combination are equally as rare. If your customers demand a specialized experience, Papua New Guinea Baroida Estate will deliver.

Brandon Riggs, Roastmaster

Plant Ambiance with a Coffee Tree from Stockton Graham & Co.

Years ago, our roastmaster Brandon Riggs visited El Salvador on a routine trip to locate quality coffee. In addition to coffee, Brandon returned with some coffee beans that he planted soon after. Today, those coffee beans can be found in the front lobby of Stockton Graham & Co. in the form of an eight foot tree! Each year the company tree produces cherries which can be planted and cultivated very easily.

This year, our tree has produced so many cherries that we want to give our customers the opportunity to grow their own coffee tree. With the purchase of any of our Stockton’s Reserve coffees you will receive a free bag of coffee beans ready for planting (until we run out). Don’t worry if you aren’t the best gardener in the world, because coffee trees grow relatively easily indoors near a window. Simply water your seeds 1-2 times per week and watch your tree grow.

Having your own coffee tree in your café can also build customer understanding, and it adds a nice touch of ambiance that you don’t find in the big chains. As your tree grows it will eventually produce coffee cherries as well. Customers will love the hands-on learning opportunity, and having a tree inside is a great way to engage kids who travel with their parents.

We look forward to seeing full-grown coffee trees in your café!

Our current Stockton’s Reserve: Limited Edition Specialty Coffees include: Kenya AA Plus Iyego & El Salvador Co-op La Majada
