This is a fun left quote. Did you know that the Velo is the French slang word for bicycle? If you didn't then: Attention Madam et Monsieur! One taste and you won't need a translator to tell you that this coffee is magnificent and a triumph to all who love espresso and pour-over coffees. PT's has created this wonderful coffee as a mainstay seasonal espresso coffee project. PT's' Jeff and Maritza Taylor and Fred Polzon are what many aspire to be in the world of coffee. They get the good stuff, bring it home and with the help of the roasting staff they create magic in the cup. The Velo coffee project is beyond exciting because each season it changes and evolves into something fabulous and new. So stop snoring, you jaded Francophile! Lower your Le Figaro newspaper for a moment and read this! It is really about adventure! It is about exploring different variations of espresso. The current Velo, when used for espresso, has a body that is deep and chocolaty. It is so wonderfully lux for the fall, with bits of tart cranberry notes to embrace the upcoming holidays that are just around the corner. In a Chemex, it is sweet, sugary and soft. The creamy soft mouthfeel finishes with a bright and happy ending. So buy a bag and raise your cup because since 2013, PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. has been a proud sponsor of two cycling teams: TREK Midwest Women’s Cycling Team, and GP VeloTek. Join with us and celebrate the efforts of these athletes and their achievements. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Don your white woven Panama hat and recline in your Sarchi chair. That perfect summertime coffee has arrived! Mike at Klatch coffee has done it again with this phenomenal naturally processed Panama coffee. Panama Elida Natural is not your typical coffee. It is almost like a Geisha type coffee but for a considerably lower price. This beauty produces wonderful sweet berries and floral notes. It has a berryish chocolatey body with a bit of boysenberry and guava. It finishes with an almost banana aftertaste. It is currently the number one favorite coffee of Klatch team member Nzo right now. I have to agree, it is one not to miss. This is a fun right quote.

This is a fun left quote. Close your eyes…Do soft coffee notes of sweet orange and brown sugar sound like a dream come true? Welcome Colombia Raul Duran. This beautiful micro-lot coffee was grown with love on a tiny 2.5 acres farm called La Mina. Roaster Eton Tsuno and owner Sean Kohmescher and crew at Temple are enamored, exclaiming their Raul Duran is by far one of the very the best Colombian coffee they have cupped all year. Its pretty much mind blowing. If you love light sweet Colombian coffees, then grab this tiny micro lot today. 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 you love sweet and light Ethiopian coffees then perk your ears, step lively and order quickly! Right now 1000faces Athen's cafe is brewing up a new customer favorite. It is called Ethiopian Reko. I have thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful coffee. It has a great summer quality to it. While many African coffees can be wonderfully berryish or citrusy, this unique coffee has top notes of sweet cantaloupe with a round, soft and subtle feel. It has a great tea-like body that is very flavorful and it expresses itself very openly. I am never left to ponder what it is thinking! It really is a coffee that should be enjoyed black and without any added milk. The acidity is quite balanced. It is just a wonderful melon-y sweet cup. Like coffee iced? You get even more expression out of it when it is cold. Snatch it up while you can. 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. Halt deine Lederhosen fest! Oktoberfest is here! Oktoberfest is the fall segment of MadCap’s series of seasonal blends. These are created to highlight the time of year while bringing excitement and nuance to the cup by blending exceptional single origin coffees in the current line-up. The Oktoberfest Blend - similar to the style of Oktoberfest Beer - is straight forward, balanced, deep with notes of citrus and spice. Definitely a perfect cup for the festive fall season.

One sip and it will have you shouting "Die nächste Runde zahlen Sie!" This is a fun right quote.
