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.

One taste of this spectacular coffee, The Red Den Blend, and I knew that Dallis Bros. was destined to be on GoCoffeeGo. Dallis Bros. has created a bold and creamy dark roast with the perfect mix of spice and chocolate. Yes, The Red Den is a real classic and a new GoCoffeeGo staff favorite. If you think this is a favorite only with the dark roast lovers, think again! The light roast lovers are praising it as warm and comforting and perfect for those that like some milk in their coffee. The boldness is a perfect pairing for rich deserts, like those chocolate brownies they sell down the street. Make this new customer favorite a favorite of yours. Order today!

I am not quite sure why my choices in coffees seem to shift with the change of the seasons. Every year around this time, when the holidays start rolling in and the sky changes colors and darkens, I crave warmth. I am drawn to naughty, sweet childlike flavors in my coffee. I think we all find rich and heavy bodied coffees comforting. I can have a few luscious cups and feel happy but often, as the day goes on, I tend to switch it up. Dallis Bros Unisphere Blend has always been a yummy cup that is light enough to drink all day and still give you the happy sweet cup that you crave. While listed as a light roast, I find it more of a medium-light. The milk chocolate, caramel, plum, nougat and malt flavors could make this one of your year round favorites. It certainly is one of mine!

Bella Finca coffee is an outstanding creation from Master Roaster Henry Kalebjian. Henry possesses a certain expertise that is rare in the coffee world. He has the unique ability of roasting bold and incredibly flavorful dark coffees without burning the precious beans. This comes from the experience of roasting coffee for over 50 years, as well as fine-tuning every nuance of his technique, having a supreme palate and knowing just when to stop the roasting process. His San Francisco coffee shop on foggy Noriega Street is well known to locals, as well as visitors who stop by from around the world to watch Henry roast. He is now well into his seventies and still roasts six days a week! He’s a proud Armenian man, who was raised in Lebanon. At age 12, he was pulled out of school to learn roasting from his father. He has carried on this family tradition and spent a lifetime honing his skills, passing this knowledge onto his son Hrag, who now works alongside him. These efforts have produced a legacy of great and unique mainstay coffees. Henry’s coffees are not only great black but also pack a powerful punch through milk-based drinks. Bella Finca is a Henry’s number #1 seller and for good reason. It is outstanding brewed black or makes one fantastic bold Italian style espresso. I love its beautiful dark tones, richness, and full bodied qualities along with its wonderful chocolate flavor notes! Without a doubt, this a great choice for fans of a dark cup. This is a must for all to brew. I recommend this with absolute enthusiasm!

I know the last thing you need right now is to hear someone crowing about something, as you climb the walls from cabin fever.. But crow, I will! Red Rooster was a surprise hit that we found via a 15 roaster submission and after 2 days of endless cupping, this Virginia roaster came out a winner, earning a spot on GoCoffeeGo. Not only is their packaging splashy but more importantly, their coffee is great. The single origin coffees are amazing. We pulled Old Crow Cuppa Joe shots on our La Marzocco GS3 and they came out fantastic. Old Crow is a smooth and chocolatey coffee with a rich full body. You will never be bored with this versatile blend. Brew it anyway that suits your mood. It can be brewed via drip, to pour over to espresso. It earned a 93 point score from our friends at Coffee Review, as well. Try this great coffee and you too will be crowing about Red Rooster.
