Espresso Novo is a great and momentous discovery! With smooth notes of caramel, banana, and a nutty finish, this is one of the most complex and remarkable espressos ever! Herb Brodsky and his sons Jake and Joseph are a remarkable family. To Herb every cup is like a song… a Bob Dylan song. He’s part hitchhiking poet, part bohemian writer. Jake, a scientist of coffee operations, obsesses on coffee perfection, getting primo beans from his brother Joseph, their world-traveling sourcer. They treat coffee like fine wine, so beautifully presented, even their packaging looks like a fancy gift. There is good crema and Karma in every sip of this amazing and tantalizing Espresso.

Ah yes, not too long ago, I was back on my private jet heading to South America in my never-ending search for the holy grail of coffees. On a secret tip from my faithful valet Baldrick, somewhere in the northern region of South America, Doma Coffee was rumored to have a special secret blend of immense chocolate and tobacco notes befitting royalty. Upon touching down in Bogota, I was greeted at the runway by a mysterious woman with skin as dark and lovely as the roasted beans I was searching for. It was immediately obvious she knew why I had come and had expected me. Once off the plane, I waved farewell to my loyal companion and Go-Go dancer entourage, loading my luggage and favorite French press into her jeep. After an hour of enduring rough terrain plus a rather sore bottom, we arrived at her secluded field. Once parked, we proceeded to hike to the top of the hill where her colleagues were busy sorting, blending and roasting the day’s harvest. We sat down together at a small bistro table beside the roasting shed and locking her eyes to mine, she finally spoke. She said her name is Carmela and she had a coffee that would ensnare my senses. Her hands clapped twice and a young boy of 14 appeared with a wooden tray and two cups of this magical liquid. Scrutinizing the contents I could immediately smell the essence of dark chocolate and tobacco lingering in the air like a siren to a lonely sailor. I lifted the cup to my lips and upon my first sip I felt overtaken by the chocolatey passion, knocking me out of my chair. It was as if my clothes were flying everywhere, like Charlie Brown on the receiving end of a speeding fastball. I quickly regained my senses, however, like a Kennedy, I was bewildered to find my pants missing. Seeing me in a rather vulnerable state, Carmela grinned with cheeky approval. Come hither, Carmela! Having satisfied my scrutiny and recovering my favorite bespoke Kent & Haste trousers, I provided Carmela her payment. Now Doma is sharing Carmela’s blend with true coffee aficionados back home. Suffice to say this decadent roast is, to say the least, Peaberry Approved.

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.

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.

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.

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!

If you asked an astronomer to tell you about the Milky way, they would probably say it is a barred spiral galaxy, about a hundred and fifty thousand light-years across, and that we live in a small part of the galaxy called the Orion Arm. But if you were to ask me, the great Professor Peaberry, the same question, I would say it is a dreamy spiral of dark and heavy chocolate and caramel deliciousness in my cup! Milky way is great as a straight espresso but truly shines in a creamy cloud of steamed milk in my latte cup. This intergalactic espresso blend put Demitasse’s cafes on the map in Southern California. One sip will have you swirling back into sweet childhood type flavors. This is destined to become a GoCoffeeGo favorite and top seller. Try this fantastic new roaster today.
