Coffee Growers & Coffee Bean Profiles
We search worldwide to find the highest quality and highest value coffee beans to offer our customers. But that’s not the only criteria we consider. We believe it is also important to align ourselves with growers whose practices favor the environment and provide optimum working conditions and benefits for employees.
Our coffee bean and grower articles also include our notes on taste profiles and roasting tips.

Congo Org. Kivu Butembo Village Bourbon I have always had a fascination with the Congo – perhaps from a movie I watched as a child. What a different place and culture – often seen in a dark light, coffee from there serves as a beacon of light in a troubled place. The taste of this coffee is about as unique and exotic as my thoughts on the Congo itself – tasty but pretty different.
A very unique African offering. Reminds me of an Indonesian Sulawesi almost more than other African coffees. Low acidity and full bodied. It has a very sweet versus earthy contrast. The earthy is more of a mushroom herbal-like tone that balances well with a strong bakers chocolate undertone. As the cup cools, a little pleasant nuttiness comes out in the aftertaste.
Yemen Mocca Haimi It has been a long time since we offered a Yemen coffee – we love them incredibly but with the political battles and atrocities taking place we avoided them. Recently we have gotten into some good discussions with coffee folks and the recent thinking is, good to support these Yemen farmers regardless of what is politically happening in the country.
Classic Yemen coffee – fruity and chocolaty. Yemen coffees are the rare cup where you can occasionally see a “banana” like fruit tone – don’t worry though, its a little bit of a reach for banana, its not like eating a banana or banana flavored coffee, although with developed tongue, most can pick it up. Red fruit and bakers chocolate are the dominate tones – fruit is accentuated with lighter roasts, chocolaty with darker roasts. A lovely super complex old world natural.
