Spring in Colorado means heavy snow and a warming cup of coffee after shoveling. In the spirit of mountain adventures to come, we've been playing around with our Tana Toraja coffee on Aeropress, (since it’s a great camping friendly hand brew device) and it's a delicious combination. There are chocolaty and cherry cola flavors, nice and approachable, followed by a truly umami aspect which leans toward the savory side. It's a great coffee for hard-core enthusiasts and casual drinkers. Check out all of our current coffee offerings here.
We are excited to say we will have the Colline Ninga from Burundi coming back. It's a unique coffee with bright, clean, and savory aspects, highlighted by cranberry, gingerbread and citrus notes that combine to make a really well balanced drink.
This year we're helping the co-op finance some organic implements for its growers to combat coffee leaf rust, and doing our best to expand the micro-lot program which connected us with Don Manuel and Doña Lucinda last year. We've already tasted Don Manuel's coffee from mid-harvest (no guarantees for arrival in the summer, but the sample was delicious), and our second set of samples is set to arrive in Denver soon. More on our roasts plans for the spring to come!
