Prices for our current coffee offerings
Here are our current offerings -- we have single origin coffees from Colombia, Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Honduras.
We had hoped to have the Sierra Nevada Colombia in by now but it's being held up by certification paperwork glitches. Till that's resolved, we have a more than fine substitute from the Santa Barbara estate in the Department of Antioquia near Medellin. Santa Barbara is one of the few estates that is vertically integrated -- they grow the beans and do all the milling and processing themselves. Unlike the natives near Sierra Nevada, the growers of this fine coffee don't believe they are keeping the world in balance, but it may help yours.
Our Ethiopia continues as a natural processed Sidamo, one of no special pedigree other than being packed in those egregious GrainPro bags. Mildly fruity -- and I think a little nutty -- with strawberry and cherry notes.
Our current Sumatra is 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 is once again 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.
