Neon is a chemical element with the symbol Ne and atomic number 10. It is also a bright and vibrant color appearance. Think David Bowie's makeup during his Ziggy Stardust phase. It is also a 2012 fashion trend that claims a lot of celebrity victims, who will remain nameless. Neon however can be timeless and that is when it comes to Dogwood's Neon Espresso. Dogwood's Stephanie Ratanas and crew really have wowed us with their coffees. Enough for us to pass over bigger names to bring them on the site. Neon Espresso is their latest espresso creation that is a great example of why we brought them on board. It is bright and has an explosive sweetness that makes it destined to be a classic. It also has a great chocolatey vibe that will satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth. No need to worry about the elements because it is all here in Dogwood's Neon Espresso. Order a bag. It will leave you glowing.

Ahhh…The thought of coffees from the Huila region of
Colombia make me smile in anticipation. Colombian coffees
have a wonderful reputation as being mild and well balanced
in the cup. Olympia’s San Sebastian Reserva is no exception.
Creamy and smooth notes of caramel, baked apple and panela
make this a great sweet and mellow drink-all-day-coffee.
When roasters and farmers work together, they can do great
things. The San Sebastian Reserva Project promotes long
lasting quality focused relationships between farmer and
roaster. A staff cupper in Colombia ensures quality by cupping
100’s of samples. The best and freshest crops that command
attention are sent to Olympia. This beautiful washed coffee
from OCCICAFE won Olympia’s heart. Try it and it will win
yours. It does not have to be Valentine's Day to fall in love.
Ice cream sundaes are on my all time my favorite list
of indulgent desserts and when I discovered
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
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.

Looking for a great drip coffee? Drum roll, please!…Get
ready for Olympia Coffee's latest retro inspired
creation: "Little Buddy." Following the success of Big
Truck Espresso, Oliver Stormshak and the gang at
Olympia wanted to create a great coffee that was
specifically roasted for brewing in your old school home
drip machine. Incorporating a smooth, full bodied
coffee with strong notes of caramel, this timeless cup
brings forth to modern day a renewed sense of youthful
Little Buddy was inspired by the feeling of freedom you
had when you were 16 and got the keys to your first car.
In Oliver's family, the memory started the day that he
watched his older sister, Bridgette, get the keys to the
1982 Honda Civic as featured on the bag. Young Oliver
watched in awe as she slid behind the wheel, pondering
the possibilities…The adventure of one day leaving the
suburbs and entering the great unknown. She named
her car "Little Buddy" as it became her reliable
companion. Let this coffee be your companion in life's
Friends, raise your mug to the Honda Civic, Mustang,
Pinto, Camaro or even station wagon of your past. It
does not matter what it was as much as where it took
you in life. Carry On!
