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.

Panama Elida Natural Catuai
(Dir. Trade, Relationship)
$21.95 / 12 oz.
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.
