Coffee Prices and Scare Mongering

Posted by 49

After hearing reports on the news about coffee rising 70c per cup, I thought I had better explain a few things. The reason for all this talk is that the commodity futures price for coffee has spiked massively from $1.35/lb to $2.02/lb in the last 2 months. What this actually means. Most coffee is bought and sold on futures prices. Coffee futures is a commodity price on the NASDAQ and fluctuates like any share market. It can go up or down based on supply and demand. In 2011 we saw prices hit a record high price of over $3/lb due...

Roasting for Bean or Brew

Posted by 49

I have found myself at this point in thought process many times over the past 10+ years of roasting. If we roast to achieve the best out of the bean, then surely there is only a small window in which we can be true to the bean. However, if we take into account how the bean will be extracted, then the grind and pressure should be taken into account during the roasting process. Before I can even begin to guide anyone through the thought trail that answers this question, let’s look at a few (modern) historical points. We are currently...

This week we are excited to have the Ethiopian Mustefa available as both espresso and filter roast. While our regular natural processed Ethiopian from the Sidamo region has proved very popular, this coffee is from the Dijimmah region and natural processed as well. It is silky with caramel sweetness, the espresso roast has notes of strawberry while the filter roast has a peachy aroma.   This is our last batch of the Costa Rica El Chayote which I have thoroughly enjoyed. The honey process really brings out a sweet fruitiness to the coffee, but in typical Costa Rican style its...
