In the next couple days, I'll be offering, for the first time ever, a nice Brazil natural process. And I'll be bringing back, after a long absence, Java, Rwanda, Sumatra, and Tanzania Peaberry! Plus, I'll have new lots of Peru and Ethiopian back in stock. Stay tuned!
Other origins, in brief...
BALI BLUE MOON - A perennial favorite Indonesian origin; smooth, syrupy, vanilla, black licorice, bold
COLOMBIA - This Santa Barbara is some of the most consistently good Colombian origins I've had; round, full, with chocolate, citrus, sweet.
COSTA RICA - In the Central Valley region, in Naranjo, come this sweet lemon notes, accompanied by smooth milk chocolate, with a long-lasting walnut finish.
GUATEMALA - Huehuetenango coffee from the renowed Huixoc estate; clean tangerine and peach flavors and hints of mild honey
KENYA - Shade-grown on Mt. Kenya, one of few Kenyan organic estates; tart and complex citrus, strawberry, green apple, clean finish
MEXICO - Shade-grown in rich volcanic soil, in Sierra Madre highlands; balanced body and acidity, sweet, with lemon and honey notes
NICARAGUA - From a model sustainable estate, Selva Negra, in the Matagalpa highlands; full-bodied, medium acidity, orange, caramel
DECAF COLOMBIA - From the same excellent Santa Barbara estate that I have often gotten regular Colombian coffee; caramel, chocolate
DECAF MEXICO - Shade-grown in the Sierra Madre mts, decaffeinated with glacial-melt water; balanced, lemony start, milk chocolate, walnut

Since 2004 I have been a home coffee-roasting enthusiast, always in search of high-quality, socially-responsible, and environmentally-sustainable green coffee beans. I discovered the best way to do this is nurture relationships with importers who care as much about ethical coffee as I do, and to rely on their on-the-ground knowledge of coffee farms around the world. So in 2008 I started buying green coffee in quantity and reselling to home coffee roasters like myself. This little side business has brought me great satisfaction, as I now have ready access to an outstanding variety of coffee myself, and I have helped many other home roasters (even a few micro-roasting businesses) get great coffee for great prices.
