Sumatra Harimau Tiger
We have cupped a lot of Sumatran coffees this year. Many are good but not outstanding.. This Sumatran is stellar. It is clean & sweet w/ hints of cedar & melon. It has a tremendous body & a very syrupy mouthfeel. Did we mention that this coffee is sweet? really if you love Sumatrans you must try this offering. This is not your funky earthy Sumatran though this is an example of great processing & careful cupping. Enjoy!
1lb $13.99
5 lb $54.95
Vienna Roast
Our darkest roast! This one is pulled from the roaster just before the oils start to appear. It is roasted slightly longer for a smooth & rich character. Our vienna is perfect for that after dinner cup! This coffees origin rotates based on the best fit for a dark roast within our current offerings. The current vienna roast is our Guatemala CODECH coop FTO. This coffee produces a wonderfully rich cup full of bakers chocolate w/ a smooth finish!

We stopped for delicious maple lattes made with oat milk and adored the local flavor and country ambiance. The lattes were excellent and the fragrances of fresh baked goods compelling

Although from the outside this place didnt look terribly inviting inside was a pleasant surprise. The coffee was really good, freshly ground and in a cup. We didn't sample any of the food but the menu was interesting and innovative.
