Review: Raw Brews Yin-Yang Coffee and Tea Subscription Box (Allentown, Pennsylvania)

Coffee subscriptions are a great way to get to try a variety of coffees without having to do the legwork yourself of researching and sourcing and ordering. I’ve reviewed a number of coffee subscription companies already on this blog, but the folks at Raw Brews stood out to me because in addition to coffee, they […]

Review: Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters Panama Carmen (Dallas, Texas)

Most of the Panamanian coffees I’ve tried have been ridiculously expensive Geishas (and I sure do love those!), but I also am quite fond of beans from Panama in general. One of the first beans I reviewed for this blog was the Klatch Panama Elida Honey, and that bag still stands out in my memory […]

Review: Porch Culture Coffee Roasters Morning Jam (Tyler, Texas)

I’ve had great experiences with Porch Culture’s beans in the past and I was excited to pick up a new (to me) offering of theirs when I visited The Foundry Coffee House on a recent trip to Tyler. When shopping for coffee, I am most concerned with freshness and roast level, but the name Morning […]

Review: Cuvée Coffee Brazil Patos de Minas Fazenda Pantano (Austin, Texas)

(I completely forgot to snap a photo of the bag I purchased like I usually do, so I grabbed this photo off of Cuvée’s website. Hope that’s okay!) Whole Foods came to my rescue yet again, as I found myself out of coffee and unable to wait even a few days to order any online or […]

Review: Blue Bottle Coffee California Good Land Organics Gesha Blend (Oakland, California)

While I’ll be writing this post up like a normal coffee review, this really feels like a bit of a historical event due to the beans themselves. First off, this is going to be a giant tease of sorts because this coffee was available for a very short window of time in December and that […]

Review: Heart Coffee Roasters Kenya Gachuiro AB (Portland, Oregon)

Oak Lawn Coffee isn’t super close to my home (around 30 miles) but I count myself lucky that I’m in that part of Dallas often enough that when I feel like treating myself to beans from Heart Coffee Roasters, I can just pop into the shop and grab a fresh bag. Heart is one of my […]

Review: Methodical Coffee Ethiopia Guji, washed (Greenville, South Carolina)

There’s no real system I follow when choosing coffees to review; some are sent to me by roasters, some are gifts from friends, some are coffees I seek out and buy directly from roasters’ locations or websites, and some just jump into my path while visiting coffee shops at home or in my travels. This […]

Review: Ceremony Coffee Roasters Guatemala Las Moritas (Annapolis, Maryland)

I have a Word document on my computer that’s just a list of coffee roasters that I want to check out when I have the time/money/opportunity. Ceremony Coffee Roasters has been on that list for probably about a year, and I am sure I would have gotten around to ordering online from them eventually, but […]

Review: Weekend Coffee Roasters Mexico Organic Altura Finca San Carlos (San Jose, California)

I was recently contacted by the nice people at Weekend Coffee Company, based out of Northern California. I like that they’re a family-owned company, and they received the “Editors Choice” award in the 2017 Metro “Best of Silicon Valley” issue. At this time, they’re an online-only business (they don’t operate a storefront/brick-and-mortar coffee shop), but […]

Review: Driftaway Coffee Colombia Huila Finca el Tabor (Brooklyn, New York)

This review will be a both a usual and an unusual review, in that Driftaway Coffee operates as a coffee subscription company with constantly rotating offerings, so while you may not be able to get these exact beans, I wanted to do a full review of the beans I did receive to give an overview […]
