12/6/18 - Out of Brazil Sweet Yellow until late next week.
Brazil Sitio is gone too. The good
news is we have Moscardini (from Brazil)
coming in late next week along with
the Sweet Yellow. Moscardini is a
very interesting coffee bean processed
through a unique "controlled
fermentation" process by the
farmer. It involves slowing it down
while periodically measuring the moisture
and temperature. The purpose of this
is to bring out, and in some cases
mute, certain flavor characteristics.
11/26/18 - Kenya
Kambu now available.
We were pleasantly surprised at the
cupping table when we discovered the
deep, bold flavor these beans have
11/15/18 - No More Konga.
The good news is

from our favorite co-op "Dorman".

This is a natural (sund-dried) processed
coffee with unique floral characteristics.
11/2/18 - From Ethiopia,
"Misty Valley" is

consistently great from season to
10/31/18 - New roasted coffee
offerings coming this weekend
(or before) include several Africans
(Ethiopia) and a new Guatemalan. Stay
tuned and Valic will get them up.
10/17/18 - Apparently some
of the links leading to our roasted
Salvador Finca Malacara
led to nowhere. Valic was able to
fix it so it is now available. In
addition, it can be had at a 10% discounted
price. This is a very sweet, bright,
coffee with incredible flavor. Just
in the customer code box when checking
out to receive the discount. The discount
applies to this coffee only.

from Costa Rica, is now available.

9/19/18 - We've
been very busy in our cupping room
lately as there seems to be an abundance
of nice coffees this time of year,
with the exception of Sumatrans. Indonesia
has had a rough year and the harvests
have been much smaller than hoped.
All is not lost though, as we've been
able to secure enough to get us through
From Costa Rica, we
have some nice El Conquistador
"Special Prep" on
the way. A number of years ago we
stocked this coffee on a regular basis

back in. Valic should have it up and
available by the weekend.
9/3/18 Happy Labor Day. Guatemala
"La Voz", from

a coffee comprised of heirloom coffee
shrubs carefully sought out in Ethiopian

our way over the next couple of weeks.
In particular we're looking at some
high-end Guatemalan coffees.
7/15/18 - Rwanda Bumbogo
is no more. We're looking
around for another one, but it may
be a little while.
7/4/18 Happy July 4th! To
celebrate, we convinced Valic to post
two new organic roasted coffee offerings.
From Ethiopia, we have a natural processed
with sweet berry-like overtones. From
Salvador, Finca Malacara
- an elegant, lively cup.
6/19/18 - No more Yirgacheffe
Wenago. Fortunately, we do
have a nice Ethiopian Harrar that
has similar berry-like qualities coming
in a couple of weeks.
4/28/18 Hawaiian Kau is
back in stock. There was a freight
logistics problem causing a several
week delay in getting our shipment.
Sometimes it seems it's for us to
import coffees from other countries
than it is from Hawaii. Not really
