Brazil – Poco Fundo

Posted in Announcements, Coffee with tags , , on October 16, 2008 by smilinggoat

Single Origin Espresso


Drop by to try this very intense triple ristretto. Look for notes of bright passionfruit and green apple (Zane got rubarb today) off the top and finishing with a nice almondy, chocolately-ness.

In milk the brightness tends to diminish, leaving the chocolate / almond to dominate. YUM!

There’s only about 7lbs of this coffee so come in quick to have some.

See you soon!

** The next S.O. Espresso on the menu may be a Cup of Excellence El Salvador … not the Santa Maria we are currently featuring on the Clover …  so stay tuned!


New Single Origin Espresso

Posted in Coffee with tags , , , on October 2, 2008 by smilinggoat

We’ve been working on a new SO ‘spro for y’all!

(that sentence sounds great in my head when said with a real Texas drawl … and no, I will not say it that way for you if you ask)

It’s a Brazil – Poco Fundo … so far things are going well. We’ve spent some time working with a medium roast with some great shots. Right now they tend to be either a little too bright or, upon adjustment, go straight to too bitter. So we’ve asked Jim at Java Blend to do up a sample that’s just a little more darkly roasted and we’ll give that one a go. We expect that to arrive, hopefully, tomorrow.

Maybe it will be on the menu early next week? … we’ll keep you updated here as soon as things develop.

Monday, October 6th:

Jim did a slightly darker sample roast for us on Saturday. It should be just about perfect tomorrow morning to do some testing. If it is as great as we hope then we’ll get a production roast done as soon as possible and have it in the grinder a couple days after that. Stay tuned.
