Summer is here, in full swing!
And we have a new staff favorite, celebrating one of the best parts of summer: blueberries!
The Ethiopia Hambela is our latest naturally processed bean, meaning that it is fermented in the coffee parchment. This gives the end result a lovely fruity, syrupy aroma and bright flavor that is distinctly blueberry like. If you have not had the opportunity to try a natural processed coffee in your life, this is a great one to start with. Or if you've had another natural Ethiopian from us before, you know how delicious they are. We take great care and pride in sourcing all of our beans, so when we say this is good, we mean it is GOOD.
The owner says this also makes a fantastic cold brew! Perfect for summer!read more
Some may have noticed that our staggering piles of coffee bags have otherwise disappeared from the shop floor. They were moved offsite for a time, and shall soon be returning. Volume dictates that we will have to keep these bags in one of the alcoves. This means, sadly, that we will briefly lose a few seats. Fear not! We'll be making big changes over the next few weeks! We are going to be closed for Easter, and during that day we'll be implementing a couple of these changes. Exciting things are happening!read more
What's in a name?
The coffee that everyone in the specialty coffee world has been clamoring for, Gesha/Geisha, gets its name not from the beautiful and alluring women of Japanese culture, but from a district in Ethiopia. The famed seed was originally developed and grown in Gesha, Ethiopia and has made its way over to a number of other coffee growing countries. Our first Geisha has arrived from Colombia, La Esperanza. The flavors were unlike anything we've ever had. This coffee has a cult following for a reason! We strongly feel that this bean should have a place next to the more prized and sought after coffees in the world, like Jamaica Blue Mountain. Although it won't be around long, so grab it while you can.read more
Island coffee lovers rejoice; we've got some real-deal Jamaica Blue Mountain back in the house! Processed by the famed Mavis Bank, an exceptional coffee to indulge in as the air turns crisp and blustery here in Vermont. Delicately sweet and distinguished, with a soft and comforting personality, this coffee wants to hug you. It won't last long.read more
