One of the things that we enjoy most about being in the coffee business is that we have the opportunity to try some really awesome coffees from around the world. What makes that even more fun is being able to share them with you.
If you've been by our farmers market table and see the shiny, brown bags of coffee, you know there's something special in that bag. Throughout the year we are always watching for microlot coffees. These are coffees that are produced in small quantities often by one farmer. When we find these special coffees we buy them fast!
On this page you can purchase our current microlot offerings in 1lb bags. Enjoy them while we have them and check back frequently to see what's new.
Costa Rica Tarrazu La Cereza Roja
We love sundried/natural process coffees. You generally see them most in East African coffees, but we found this natural process Costa Rican and we had to have it. While they had us at 'natural process' on this one, the Cereza Roja or red cherries sealed it for us. They hand selected only red, ripe cherries to include in the lot to ensure the absolute best taste.
Cupping notes: Floral with a tart raspberry finish
We were able to grab a few bags of this amazing coffee again this year. We love this dark roast coffee and if you haven’t tried it yet, don’t miss out. It’s available in very limited quantities from our importer and it flies off the shelves here quickly. Here’s more about this coffee:
These peaberry coffee beans were hand-selected from each harvest from the farms of Colonia Siete Estrellas (Seven Stars). Peaberries ("caracol" in Spanish, also called caracolillo in Central America) are roughly 10%-15% of coffee beans that fuse into a single oblong bean inside the cherry, rather than separating into the two typical bean "halves", also known as "flat berries". They have a unique flavor, both because of the concentration of flavors in the cherry while growing, and because they roll around more evenly inside the roaster.
Cupping notes: AROMA/FLAVOR: Vanilla, Brown Sugar. Almond. Clean & Sweet. ACIDTY: Intensive clementine (citric). OTHER: Silky aftertaste, full flavor, herbal finish.
