Prices for our current coffee offerings

Here are our current offerings -- we still have our staple single origin coffees from Colombia, Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Honduras.

Recently it's seemed to be Colombia-of-the-Month. For at least a few weeks we'll have coffee from the department of Tolima in the west central part of the country from a group of producers called ASOATA who banded together to make better coffee and get their organic certification. This coffee is of course also part of Viennese Blend from which we make our now-famous Last Dance cold brew.

Our Ethiopia supply has also been something of a muddle. What we're actually roasting right now is another natural processed coffee from the GERA estate in Djimma. (Yes, I know we're labeling it Sidamo but we don't have a stamp with the right region.) This estate, while not certified organic, doesn't use chemical fertilizers or pesticides, and more importantly takes good cares of its workers. Another sweet cup with light fruity notes.

For the next month or so, our Sumatra will be from the Arinagata coop in Takengon near where the Ketiara coop is located. The cool thing about the Arinagata coop is they use motorcycles to bring the coffee down the mountain to finish processing. If you've ever wondered what the "wet hulled" process used in Sumatra is, here's a good explanation.

Our base for French roast continues to be Honduras coffee from Marcala, a municipality in the department of La Paz. "Marcala" was among the first "protected origin denominations" for coffee in Central America. The 62 member COMSA coop uses the money from its fair trade status to help fund schools and teachers for the families of its workers.

In decaf, we are using Royal Coffee's Royal Select™ water process, which, although a tad below CO2, is quite good for a water processed decaf and certainly is far better than Swiss Water™. Our current selection is an Ethiopia that's tasty even if it is decaf and makes an excellent decaf espresso as well.

We still enjoy being contrarians so our packages are all metric sizes. The industry standard 5lb bag you see everywhere is, for us, a 2.5 kilogram pack (that's 5.51 pounds). We have also a 1 kilogram (2.2 pound) package. Prices are USD per single package of 2.5kg or 1kg of a single coffee. All prices are FOB Asheville, NC 28801, and are subject to change without notice. (Please see this page for more details on shipping costs and methods.)

We prefer to ship only whole bean coffee, but if you insist, we'll grind at no charge. We'll try to grind to your specification but we can not guarantee that the grind will be optimum for your brewer. Weights shown are for whole bean. Ground weight may be slightly lower because some chaff is lost when grinding, there may be additional outgassing of CO2, or we may spill some.
