This is a fun left quote. Espresso Novo is a great and momentous discovery! With smooth notes of caramel, banana, and a nutty finish, this is one of the most complex and remarkable espressos ever! Herb Brodsky and his sons Jake and Joseph are a remarkable family. To Herb every cup is like a song… a Bob Dylan song. He’s part hitchhiking poet, part bohemian writer. Jake, a scientist of coffee operations, obsesses on coffee perfection, getting primo beans from his brother Joseph, their world-traveling sourcer. They treat coffee like fine wine, so beautifully presented, even their packaging looks like a fancy gift. There is good crema and Karma in every sip of this amazing and tantalizing Espresso. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Kuma Coffee’s Yurko, grown in the Gera Woreda region of Ethiopia is hands down by far one of the best coffees we have had all year! Most Ethiopians Kuma has carried have come from Yirgacheffe or Sidamo but this coffee was a real head turner for the Kuma crew. Kuma cupped over 50 Ethiopians to find this gem. Peach, Orange, Marmalade, Lime, Lilac and Spiced Tea make this a great cup brewed hot or cold. I drank it iced and it was brilliant. The Yukro Coop farmers is 240 members strong. While this coffee is not certified organic, it may be of interest to some to know that the coop uses organic practices. Try this coffee as it will not disappoint. A smashing coffee to fall in love with. Try it while it lasts. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Ice cream sundaes are on my all time my favorite list of indulgent desserts and when I discovered Barefoot's Guatemalan El Socorro Amarillo, well I fell just in love. It reminds me of a banana split with fudgy chocolate and banana. Barefoot lists the notes as Banana, Brown Sugar and Creme Fraiche which is true too. It has a bright and sweet tropical fruit acidity. It translates well to not only pour over methods as well makes a nice drip coffee. It is a unique coffee and it is no wonder it took 1st Place in the 2013 Cup Of Excellence and is a top favorite coffee right now at Barefoot. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. This dark roasted velvety masterpiece from Massachusetts roaster John Mahoney’s Atomic Café is an exotic mix of beans sourced from Papua New Guinea (PA-poo-Y nyoo GIN-ee) and Costa Rica. The mix is quite wonderful because it produces such a rich yet clean and refreshingly smooth cup. The smokiness never overpowers. Dark roast lovers rejoice! Brewed hot or cold, it can be sipped all day long. It’s an east coast/ west coast brokerage house customer favorite and one of mine too. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. The ever popular Redcab - Brazil Espresso is a classic Barefoot mainstay that always hits the mark. On Target! Its flavor notes hint of taffy and cacao in a dry aroma followed by layers of nougat, cashew butter, nutmeg and dark chocolate that really deliver. Redcab is wonderfully heavy bodied and round with an outstanding cream finish that will make you come back for more. Pull an espresso shot and get ready for blast of flavor explosion! This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Every coffee has a story and Big Truck Espresso is no exception. Inspired by his childhood memories, roaster Oliver Stormshak learned to drive in his Grandpa Joe's green 1955 Chevy Truck. As he grew into a man, Grandpa Joe was a mainstay in his life and has remained a great role model who has inspired him ever since. He taught him life lessons and the importance of hard work. This has helped make Oliver the great roaster he is today. This commitment to excellence rewarded Olympia with the 2013 Roaster Of The Year Award. Oliver and crew created Big Truck Espresso to be Olympia's flagship espresso and it does not disappoint. It's a classic, just like Grandpa Joe and that 55 Chevy. It is always great, memorable and consistent. A solid, big bodied espresso with sweet chocolate notes and a dense fruity finish. Big Truck is a mix of beautiful organic coffees that are often washed, honeyed or natural. They change from season to season but it is an espresso you can always count on to deliver. Grandpa Joe eventually sold the truck but the memories live on in Big Truck Espresso. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Looking for adventure? No need to jump a plane. Barefoot has just the cure for the summer blues with their Adventurous Drip Sampler Pack. This sampler contains coffees that are brighter and fruitier. Perfect for those of you that sleepwalk comatose to your coffee machine in the morning drinking the same old reliable coffee you order every time or that wallow in indecision. Snore... Wake up! Mix it up a bit! This set could be a real eye-opener. Like a DJ choosing a playlist, Barefoot keeps things exciting with smaller sampler 8 ounce bags from a lineup of their current more complex and fruity seasonal drip coffees. It is a nice opportunity to try a few Barefoot offerings and see what you think. At the very least, it will leave you feeling well traveled without the jet lag. For those that want to play it a bit more safe there is also a Barefoot Traditional 3 bag sampler which tend to have more chocolate notes, heavier mouth feels and are less complex. These are really great as well. Try this or don't! Whatever you do, just try something different today! This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. If variety is the spice of life, then Dogwood's sampler 4 pack is for you! We first heard about Dogwood Coffee from a GoCoffeeGo roaster whose opinion we greatly respect. The roaster tried their coffee and thought they were a real discovery! Having a little bit of Christopher Columbus in me, I decided to take a voyage and explore their offerings for myself. I have to say that I was atonished! We were all very impressed and surprised at the quality of coffee being produced out of this small Minneapolis roastery, founded in 2010. With head roasters, Stephanie Ratanas and Eddie Anderson it's smooth sailing ahead. They do a bang up job of roasting, sourcing and picking really delicious coffee. In our eyes, Stephanie Ratanas is on her way to becoming a full fledged coffee rockstar. She boards prop planes with the best of the boys, and she often can be found traveling around the globe to origin to meet with farmers to source killer coffee for Dogwood. Like many of our roasters, Dogwood coffees are very seasonal. They can revolve in and out quite quickly, but that keeps things exciting! For a while now, Dogwood has had a great sampler set of four of their current coffee offerings. It is a great opportunity to try a mix of what they are roasting. Often the 4 pack includes a mix of African and central American coffees, as well as a bag of Mixtape, their revolving and ever evolving signature blend. Give Dogwood a try and see why we think they are not just the little roastery that could but the little roastery that would… Dogwood! :) This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Attention Chocoholics: looking for an espresso that is super duper chocolatey? Then Klatch House Espresso is for you! I have been pulling shots all morning on my new La Marzocco GS3 and am loving it! Not to be confused with their FTO House Espresso…This espresso is ultra rich and has a heavy, creamy body. Add steamed milk to the Klatch House Espresso and it tastes like a Mocha without adding any chocolate and all those calories. It is really quite amazing. On my 3rd cappuccino this morning I decided to experiment. While I never add sugar to my coffee, because of the over the top chocolate body of the espresso, I wanted to see what would happen if I added a touch of sugar and a spray of whipped cream on top. Well, as suspected, I felt like I was drinking a real hot cocoa! I swear I was in back Paris having an Angelina Hot Chocolate on Rue de Rivoli. Well, not exactly. Its not as thick, but almost. Because of its richness in milk drinks, it may be a bit heavy for those of you that slam 6 double Cappuccinos or Lattes before noon, but for most people it will hit the spot as a great mainstay to have on hand when you want something sweet and naughty. For many people that is everyday and all day long! This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Bird Rock's signature,"Bird Rock Blend" has what it takes to be a great and classic cup that I will now lean on as a go-to favorite. I love how the chocolate tones transform into a thick and gooey, candy-fudge-like finish. Yum! The Sumatra and Ecuadorian beans are wonderfully combined and orchestrated by roast maestro Charles Patton, the 2012 Micro-Roaster of the year. His commitment to excellence is unwavering. He personally travels to origin, conducting a world-wide search to select the specific beans that will produce the flavor profile he plans to create, then after returning home, Charles "dials it in" through various test roasts and numerous cuppings until he achieves that perfect balance and harmonious tonality he sought and now has brought to the cup. This robust, medium-dark roast is a stellar offering! If you have not had Bird Rock yet, order this and taste why the crew from La Jolla, California are 2012's top award winners. This is a fun right quote.
