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.

We haven't been able to get our favorite Sierra Nevada but we have a great substitute from the Cauca department. Cauca lies in the Colombian Massif, part of the South American Andes mountains that also includes the Huila, Nariño, and Popayán departments. High altitudes, volcanic soil, small farmers -- a great combination for specialty coffee. It's also part of Viennese Blend from which we make our now-famous Last Dance cold-brew.

From Ethiopia we have another natural process Yirgacheffe grown by the members of the Dumerso Cooperative that consists of 246 family owned farms. None of the Ethiopia naturals has been exceptionally fruity this year, but this one is sweet with mild notes of watermelon, plum, and blueberry.

We have more of our favorite Sumatra from the Ketiara coop, run by women, many of whom lost their husbands in the 2003 civil war. This is the only Sumatra we have at present so I may switch back to labeling the bags Ketiara instead of Mandheling. Or not. 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 from Mexico 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 brewing method. 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.
