Coffees

Sapsucker

Comprised of washed Ethiopian and Kenyan coffees, Sapsucker is an espresso homage to the elegance and uniqueness of East African coffees. Bright citric acids, tamed (but not muted) by careful roasting, are predominant. Flavors layered with refined peach and apricot are accented by subtle floral aromatics and a clean, champagne-like finish.

Organic Kurimi

Intense floral aromatics are typical of Ethiopia coffees, though rarely as well articulated as with this coffee. A remarkable perfume of hibiscus and rosewater on the nose leads to a delicate cup with a silky mouthfeel and soft pomegranate notes.

El Diablo Dark Roast

Our flagship dark roast offers a different look at some of the coffees we have available each season.  Our Roasting Team tailors the roast to bring out dark baker’s chocolate notes  with a caramelized sweetness and softened acidity.  Lasting impressions of molasses and malted barley linger in the smoky finish.
