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...


Introducing our Guatemala Antigua La Pastores

Introducing our Guatemala Antigua La Pastores

The Antigua region of Guatemala sits over 1,500 meters above sea level, in a valley surrounded by three volcanos, Agua, Fuego, and Acatenango.  It has the perfect growing environment of sun, rain, cold night-time temperatures with mineral rich volcanic soil.  The volcanic pumice in the soil retains moisture, which helps offset Antigua’s low rainfall in the dry season - January through April.  Today roughly 270,000 hectares are planted with Arabica coffee and 98% of that is shade grown. Shade is especially dense to protect the coffee plants from the regions occasional frost.  Guatemala...

New coffees are arriving and we've got some new ones we are excited to share with you.

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...


How much caffeine is in Swiss Water Process decaffeinated Coffee

How much caffeine is in Swiss Water Process decaffeinated Coffee

Most associate coffee with the caffeine buzz it provides, but many people need to avoid caffeine. From wanting a solid night's sleep, to needing to avoid caffeine due to more serious health issues, or just disliking the feeling of being jittery and agitated, people choose to drink decaffeinated coffee while still enjoying its soothing flavor.

But did you know that "decaffeinated" is not the same as "caffeine free"?  Caffeine free means that the product is completely void of caffeine.  Decaffeinated, however, just means that a level of caffeine has been removed.   Decaf coffee is not caffeine free.
