Newsie!

New Single Origin Coming Soon!

We’re excited to feature this Catuai variety coffee produced by farmer Fidelina Pérez. Grown on a two acre family-owned farm, she’s part of the Catracha Project, which educates local farmers on how to improve their coffee production and create more business opportunities. Fidelina receives all profits from the sale of her exported coffee, providing the main source of income for her, her husband and four children. She plans on using a portion of her earnings to help her daughters attend college. Our first roast date will be Monday, August 22. Make sure grab a bag while we have it available!

For us it’s about being worthy of your confidence and business. One of the things we cherish most, is the chance to continuously earn our customers’, employees’ and vendor partners’...

New Packaging!

It is finally here!  With a brand new bag and some new designs we are very excited to roll out our new packaging today! Why did we change packaging? First and foremost, freshness. We roast twice a week so we can deliver consistently fresh coffee to our stores and to our customers. The added protection in our new high barrier bag will help maintain that freshness longer. What does the artwork on the bags mean? Our blends have different images on the bags in the hope that you will find and recognize a coffee you love.   We wanted to...
