Coffee Growers & Coffee Bean Profiles
We search world-wide 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.

Most Recent Coffee Profiles
Haitian High Altitude Typica Blue Gwo Chwall (Big Horse). The 2015/16 crop took Haiti’s best cup award. This is the new 2016/17 crop and it is no dissapointment.
Very similar to the Haitian Org Blue Mountain and from the same strain stock – this is grown at a bit higher altititude and coming from a different area, containes a bit denser beans and is also a bit fresher. A little more acidity can be found in the cup giving it just a hint more sweetness and crispness. Great islandy tones and strong dark chocolate make this a very tasty cup.
Indonesian Bali Org Red Cherry Uptiti Sari Farmers Semi-Washed (Fancy Blue Moon). The coffee’s hallmark Indonesian flavor is the product of wet-hulling, a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed.
Very clean and smooth comparatively to the normal Blue Moon. Medium bodied and lower acidity its got some very nice chocolaty tones mixing with a little hint of a soft fruit tone; almost orange like. Darker roasts get pretty smokey and edgy – a classic Sumatra might be better for dark roasts – real interesting and the medium to borderline dark roast and amazingly clean for an Indo. Just like the Bali Blue Moon on its best years.
