Prices for our current coffee offerings
New crop coffees are mostly in now -- in single origins, we currently have coffees from Colombia, Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Honduras.
The Colombia is from the Sierra Nevada region, the mountains on the northern-most coast. 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.
The Queen City Harar is running out (all coffees do) but our staple Ethiopia -- the natural processed Sidamo from the Guji co-op -- is in. Fruity, good acidity, a little of the natural process earthiness. The FTO Sumatra delivery this month is once again from the Permata Gayo co-op, an excellent example of the breed with all the things you expect in this Indonesian: full-bodied, earthy, and slightly chocolate-ly and spicey. Plus it's a sweet cup to boot -- what's not to like? Stop by Old Europe (13 Broadway in Asheville) and try some, it's the house coffee there.
The base for our French Roast is still the popular Honduras Marcala, another politically correct coffee -- it's an FTO and shade-grown certified as well.
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 a conventional Sumatra that makes an excellent decaf espresso.
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||43||18||11|
|Roasts & Blends|
|Decaf Sumatra, French, or Espresso
Because we enjoy being contrarians, 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 1 kilogram (2.2 pound) and
500 gram (1.1 pound) packages. Prices are USD per single package of 2.5kg, 1kg, or 500g of a single coffee.
All prices are FOB Candler, NC 28715, 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.
If you think the price of coffee in grocery stores and coffee shops is getting too high, we agree. Here's a comparison of some local and on-line prices, and what our coffees cost per pound.
