New Kenyan Coffee

Posted in Announcements, Coffee with tags , , , on October 10, 2011 by smilinggoat

Kenya – Kirinyaga Peaberry

                  Special Feature

Starting with a sweet chocolate and bergamot, citrus aroma, this coffee features a light and dynamic body. In the cup you will find delicate notes of almond nuttiness, chocolate and lovely note of cherry. A smooth and silky texture and a syrupy fruitiness with hints of pineapple and cherry finish this coffee beautifully.

Cherries are selectively hand-picked and brought to the wet mill the same day of picking, where they undergo additional sorting and fully washed processing before being milled. The coop is made up of 12 wet mills and 16,000 farmers and is situated on the deep red volcanic soils on southern slopes of Mt. Kenya. In a co-op, each member is tending to only 200-500 trees on less than a hectare, as opposed to a huge estate that uses agribusiness growing methods.

Black Cat Fruit Bat!!

We have the Black Cat Fruit Bat Espresso back!!

 

Black Cat – Fruit Bat

Limited Time Feature

Rotund in dimension, accented with tropical fruit flavors and an effervescent brightness. The nose is strongly floral, evocative of hibiscus blossoms and lavender. Intertwined in a silken and buttery presence on the palate are residues of mango nectar, dried pineapple, candied ginger and punctuated by acidity reminiscent of lemonlime bitters and fresh green apple.

Rich Smooth Sweet & Fruity

 

Drop by today to try it before it’s gone!

New coffee from Intelli

Posted in Announcements, Coffee with tags , , , on August 25, 2011 by smilinggoat

Nicaragua – Los Delirios / Organic

                            Finca Ojo de Agua                                 

                                    Direct Trade / ‘In Season’ Offering

Elderflower, chamomile and orange blossom frame notes of citrus fruit, melon and rhubarb. As the cup cools, layers of complexity begin to emerge as notes of nougat, almond cookie and brown sugar.

 

The Canales family and the El Eden cooperative group continue to be among the most proactive and quality-conscious organic farmers in Nicaragua. In their home, in Pueblo Nuevo, it’s not surprising to see them hand-sorting parchment (still un-hulled beans) coffee on small tables in their garage. This kind of meticulous handling is rare in Nicaragua but essential to producing world-class coffees. Behind the family’s homeis a large cement patio where the coffee is dried, and the proximity allows them to keep a watchful eye on the coffee at all times to ensure that the drying is carried out perfectly. It is truly a family operation, with everyone helping out in some way to make it all work. The coffee is milled nearby by Prodecoop, one of the first coffee cooperatives in Nicaragua to really establish a quality reputation in the Specialty market.
