Prices for our current coffee offerings
Here are our current offerings -- we have single origin coffees from Colombia, Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Honduras.
Our current Colombia is from the Tolima department in the west central part of the country, between Huila and Cauca. It's grown and milled by an association of small farmers. Sweet, slightly orange-y, another excellent example of the breed. It's also part of Viennese Blend from which we make our now-famous Last Dance cold-brew.
From now through the spring, our Ethiopia offering will be a natural Yirgacheffe -- most are wet processed -- from the south central highlands courtesy of the 177 member Banko Dhadhato cooperative. This Yirg is a very sweet cup with good acidity and while not quite the fruitiest Ethiopia ever, it's still quite tasty.
Our current Sumatra is still 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 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 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):
