Prices for our current coffee offerings
It's a new year and I'm still behind, but here are our current offerings. We still have single origin coffees from Colombia, Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Honduras.
Our Colombia continues as the excellent Valle de Cauca. I even drink this myself. 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.
Our Ethiopia is again a natural processed Sidamo, though this one is of no special pedigree other than being packed in those egregious GrainPro bags. Mildly fruity with strawberry and cherry notes.
Our current Sumatra is once more from the Ketiara coop, run by women many of whom lost husbands in the civil conflicts there a decade ago. This Ketiara lot is produced entirely from the Adsenia varietal, one of the oldest in Aceh. 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 from Honduras, this one from a 70 member coop based in the village of Capucas which lies near Celaque National Park in western Honduras. This coop has invested in a health care center, a soccer field, and a computer lab to benefit the community.
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||44||19||11|
|Roasts & Blends|
|Decaf Ethiopia, French, or Espresso
