We're thrilled to welcome our friends at The Willows Inn back for another magical season. The Willows team approaches everything they do with care and intention, which is why we were so excited to collaborate with them on this special blend. The inaugural iteration of the blend is comprised of Peru La Esperanza and Ethiopia Shifo -- offering a balance of citrus, earthiness and caramel sweetness. You can only find this blend at the Willows, at our cafe, and on our website. Link in profile.
We’re humbled to work with the creative & generous folks at Konbi in LA. Pay them a visit next time you’re in the area — you won’t regret it.
Clock wizardry or not, we got you 🥳
🤓🤙☕️ Fun fact: all of our green coffee is either vacuum sealed or stored in GrainPro. That’s one of the many, many reasons why this lot has such a sparkling acidity, as well as lush notes of pineapple, honeydew, and lilac. . Enjoy a cup at @camberholly this week, or order a bag online — link in profile. . Shifo is a micro-region of Kochere in the Gedeo Zone of the Ethiopian highlands. This coffee is grown at over 2100 meters by small farmers who deliver their crop to a local washing station. The coffee is fermented under water for 24-36 hours, depending on weather, to remove the mucilage.

What’s your favorite coffee memory? . . I’ll start ...let me set the scene. It was an unseasonable cold (and sleety) October morning on the Shuksan Arm. Brew method: Can’t-Feel-Fingers-Aeropress. This was a purely eyeball affair. Odds are the brew ratio was absurd. It was a fairly stale, yet heavily fruited coffee from Guatemala. And it was soul-warming and utterly delicious. . Now your turn...

After years of sample roasting and cupping, there are few delights greater than finding a coffee that defies expectation. That’s what El Cedro did for us—its juiciness completely caught us by surprise. We hope you enjoy this mid-winter treat. Link in profile. . . Gonzalo Guevara Martinez is the founder and current president of the Santuario Association of Coffee Producers, which works with small-scale producers in Cajamarca, Peru. His farm name refers to the cedar tree that grows on his small four hectare farm. The land is dotted with indigenous trees that give shade to his coffee trees. . . At El Cedro, coffee is selectively picked with only the ripest cherries being harvested at each pass. Cherries are then hand-sorted to ensure that no underripe or damaged cherries make it into the fermentation tanks. The care and attention to harvesting and processing techniques are apparent. In the cup, El Cedro is layered with notes of dark fruit and caramelized sugar.
🍭We take our sweet drinks seriously. Behold the Juniper Peppermint Latte and Winter Frost Mocha. Get yours while you can ❄️
🍇🍋🍊We have a lovely lineup of coffees on the Poursteady this week. Guatemala Hunapu is a crowd pleaser with notes of cedar, maple, and navel orange.

But don’t delay, Gotiti will be replaced by our new Kenya Mahiga AA any day now!
🍵 Slow down for tea time. Our tea selection is constantly rotating. Come see what we have to offer this week 🐨
Here’s a pretty photo of the sun setting on Birch Bay. What a social media-friendly symbol for the closing of another year. This time of year has a way of bringing emotions to the surface — thoughts of how much has changed — how much we’ve grown and how much we’ve lost. And gratitude for being around, and for all who make that possible. ❤️
Up north, citrus used to be considered a special winter treat. This coffee tastes like all sorts of citrus and is, indeed, a special winter treat. Follow the link in our profile to have a bag shipped to your doorstep. Get free shipping when you order two bags. This outstanding lot was grown by farmers living around the town of Banko Gotiti in Gedeo County. Most contributing farmers own less than a hectare of land, and they grow coffee as a backyard cash crop. Coffee will usually be interspersed with other crops, such as sweet potato, mangos and avocados. Varieties of coffee grown are usually interpreted to be heirloom, as farmers simply inherit the trees of their parents. Inputs are minimal– most coffee grown in the region is organic, though not certified, as farmers simply don’t have the money to apply chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Gotiti showcases powerful floral aromatics that give way to a navel orange sweetness in the cup. There are delicate notes of vanilla and chamomile in the finish.
