Prices for our current coffee offerings
I'm a little behind on updating this page on current offerings. There are a few changes this month though we do still have single origin coffees from Colombia, Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Honduras.
Our Colombia has switched from Sierra Nevada to coffee from Valle de Cauca. The Department of Valle de Cauca is on the Pacific coast of Colombia, south of Medellin and north of Popayan. Unlike coffee from Sierra Nevada, drinking this will not keep the world in balance, though it may help yours.
Alas, the exellent KONGA Yirgacheffe has run out. Our new Ethiopia is once again a natural processed Sidamo, this one from the Oromia Coop. Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union is one of the largest in Ethiopia with over 20,000 members.
Our current Sumatra is from the "Gayo land" near the city of Takengon on Lake Tawar in the northwestern province of Aceh. Many of the farmers in the KKGO coop are widows who lost their husbands in the civil conflicts there in the 90's. Stop by Old Europe (13 Broadway in Asheville) and try some, it's 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 even if it is decaf and makes an excellent decaf espresso as well.
I've grown weary of trying to keep track of detailed pricing, so I've simplified things by setting prices in whole dollars. Our current prices (USD):
|Colombia Valle de Cauca||46||19||11|
|Ethiopia Natural Sidamo||47||20||11|
|Roasts & Blends|
|Decaf Ethiopia, French, or Espresso
