Season’s Greetings, Folks!
As you’re gearing up for the festive season, we’ve rounded up a few tasty year-end releases fresh off the roaster! We’ve debuted our first-ever Java coffee, a 100% Bourbon stunner from Kageyo, and a singular Papuan microlot:
Java, Cempaka Mulya Village
It’s been said that Java is one of the most peaceful places on earth. Following an incredible sourcing trip to western Java in August, we’re inclined to agree. The Sunda people of Cempaka Mulya Village treat their coffees with reverence, providing exceptional care at every step of coffee production. One of our trip highlights was listening to traditional Sunda music in the processing warehouse, a practice to aid in the resting of coffee before export. This unique blend of Tim Tim and Typica varieties yields an immensely balanced cup with notes of vanilla, cocoa powder and sweet pipe tobacco in the finish.
Papua New Guinea
Hailing from the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, this first-time offering boasts a full and creamy body, with big flavors of caramel, browned butter and candied ginger coupled with soft aromatics of vanilla and jasmine. While any brew method will produce a beautiful cup, we’re digging this coffee brewed in a French Press for a deeply complex and expressive brew!
Kageyo Coop Station, Ngororero
This elegant coffee jumped off the cupping table during our most recent trip to Kageyo in May. The cup quality was remarkable and we couldn’t wait to get the fresh crop stateside and into our roaster. At long last, the highly anticipated year-end release has arrived! Expect a refreshingly sweet, structured and approachable coffee. Flavors of pink lady apple, butterscotch, and whipping cream give way to a delicate earl grey finish.
The winter offerings and many others are now available at our 7th street shop and on our webstore. Drop by 20th street for a selection of beautiful coffees that are exclusively available in store!
