Our New Peru Capili

Our New Peru Capili

How does a sweet, juicy cup with a clean, bright acidity and notes of caramel, lemon-lime, green apple and milk chocolate sound to you? 

Pretty terrific?!   That’s our new coffee from Peru.

Situated on the western coast of South America, this country is known as the land of the Incas and boasts a rich coffee-growing culture. Peruvians have been cultivating coffee since the 1700s, but it wasn't until the 20th century that they began to globally export.  With the Andes running through the western half of the...

Taking notice of the berries from that shrub, he took them to a nearby monastery, where the abbot of the monastery...

Our Newest Coffee - HAITI Blue Pine

When we sampled this stellar coffee from Haiti, we KNEW we had to carry it in our line of coffees.   With a cupping score of 86 and tasting notes of buttered toast, nut and hints of chocolate - how could we go wrong? 

While you don't hear much about coffee from Haiti - they aren't new to this industry.  Let me give you a bit of a history lesson so that you can see just what this nation has overcome and what current obstacles they have and how coffee has played...
