Prices for our current coffee offerings
There are a couple of changes this month. In single origins, we currently have coffees from Colombia, Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Honduras.
Still keeping the world in balance, the Colombia is from the Sierra Nevada mountains on the northern-most coast of Colombia. The Indians who have lived there for centuries believe that if they protect their land, they will keep the world in balance. You can help by drinking this coffee.
Our Ethiopia has switched back to one of our staple natural processed Sidamos from the Guji exporter. Guji is vertically integrated and controls the entire coffee processing from cherry to export. We have a little of the Limu left -- if you'd like some, ask before it's gone.
We're running out of our current Sumatra from the Gayo Linge coop in Aceh. The new coffee is called Yudi Putra (I think it's the family's name) that is actually a Lintong and not a Mandheling. (I'm not going to change the label though because that will only confuse everyone.) I haven't roasted any of it yet but I'll report when I do. Wait a few days and stop by Old Europe (13 Broadway in Asheville) and try some, it will be the house coffee there.
Our base for French roast continues to be an 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 still 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 eve if it is decaf and makes an excellent decaf espresso as well.
I've grown weary of trying to keep track of pricing, so I've simplified things by setting prices in whole dollars. Our current prices in USD:
|Colombia Sierra Nevada||45||19||11|
|Roasts & Blends|
|Decaf Ethiopia, French, or Espresso
