This is a fun left quote. 95 Points on Coffee Review?! KAPOW! Bird Rock coffee is on fire with their latest micro-lot offering, Guji Zone, Ethiopia. Heather Brisson and Nick Berardi at the roastery say it is flying out the doors at Bird Rock. They can barely roast it fast enough to fill orders. Take note, GoCoffeeGo customers, there is a reason Chuck Patton's small La Jolla roastery, Bird Rock Coffee, stole the thunder from other competing roasters in 2012 to get a place on our website. Chuck sources great coffee and goes to great lengths, traveling the world to get the primo beans and micro-lot coffees. He is a part of the elite group on GoCoffeeGo that makes travel a part of his life. When he cupped Guji, he fell in love. Guji is an intense coffee. Every aspect of it is intense. It is great, all across the board. Some coffees will have only one or two standout characteristics, like a nice acidity and a fine body or huge sweetness. When popping open a bag of Guji, it smells great. You notice a syrupy sweetness and deep fruitiness in aroma. When you brew it up, it really shines in pour over, cone filter or a Chemex. In an a French Press I would expect it to be even more intense. The flavors come in layers. When it is hot, you get floral, dried blueberry and fruit flavors out of it. As it cools, you notice the deepness of the profile with flavors like lycée and custardy chocolate. I advise everyone to try drinking it straight, without milk. This is a coffee that will get the coffee with milk drinkers to switch to drinking coffee black. We love this one. Brilliant! This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. I love Brazilian coffees, so when PT's Fazenda Rainha arrived I was excited. I was thrilled to see it was a natural processed coffee and the description was enticing. I pulled out the Chemex and brewed some up. One sip and I was smiling. It has a great full body that is smooth and creamy. Orange citrus and dark caramel notes make this a great drink all day coffee. I love this coffee and can see why it was a Cup Of Excellence winner in 2011. I think you will raise your cup and agree. Bravo to Jeff and Fred at PT's! 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.

This is a fun left quote. 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 exuberance. 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 journey. 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! This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Clang your Tibetan singing bowl. Temple's Dharma Espresso will transform you. You may think I am crazy, or jacked up on caffeine but I believe man's understanding of the dharma of inanimate things and the universe will be clearer with each sip. Okay, maybe that is stretching it a bit, but this is a great espresso. It is a perfect mix of Latin America and Ethiopian coffees. As straight espresso, it is a more fruit forward shot, with a bit of lively acidity. I like lively. In cappuccino and milk type drinks, it has a silky creaminess. The flavor brings to mind childhood memories. Flavor flashbacks, like those cups of frozen malted ice cream from the baseball game. You know the ones that you eat with a flat wooden spoon? Or maybe it is more like the soft, milky powdery soft notes, like the ones in Whoppers Malted Milk Ball candy. Great as a shot and comforting with cream. Don't be fooled by the name. Dharma may sound Zen but it is sure to get a lot of excitement. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Ask anyone, and you will find that they never forget their first. A memory from long ago that even today is never far from my mind. Her name was Belle Espresso, a friend brought her to my house one evening, knowing that we should meet. He was right. She had a medium body and looked just my type. With a come hither look, I picked her up and carried her to my coffee machine. I surrendered and closed my eyes. I could not resist her aroma… Brandy, Chocolate and Caramel and how lovely she looked glistening with oil. I had to have her. Steam excitedly shot from my machine wand as I pulled myself a shot! As I brought Belle to my lips, I wondered how many others knew her and if they felt the same about her, as I did... It was at that moment I knew that coffee was not just coffee, it was so much more and I would never forget her. That beautiful Belle is Klatch’s Belle Espresso and her memory will never fade away. This is a fun right quote.
