Review: 3 Sunflowers Organic Coffee Jade Blend (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

It’s always a nice surprise when I get an offer to review a coffee from a small roaster! The driving force behind 3 Sunflowers is a lovely woman named Megz. It’s worth reading her story in her own words on the Our Story page on the 3 Sunflowers website but to sum up, this coffee […]

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

Oak Lawn Coffee┬áisn’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: Ceremony Coffee Roasters Destroyer Blend (Annapolis, Maryland)

If I wasn’t already a fan of Ceremony Coffee Roasters (I very much enjoyed their single-origin Guatemala Las Moritas!), the fun, nerdy, creative names for their coffee blends would have sealed the deal. Not all of their blends are available on their website at any given time, but so far I’ve seen blends called Mass […]

Review: Two Guns Beach Blend (Manhattan Beach, California)

I picked up this bag from the Two Guns Espresso location in Manhattan Beach at the same time that I got a bag of the Two Guns Espresso Blend. Both of these bags are roasted by Dillanos Coffee Roasters in Washington. I don’t think it’s possible to buy Two Guns-branded beans online, but you can […]

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: Conscious Coffees Organic Sanitas Decaf (Boulder, Colorado)

Decaf coffee is something I rarely seek out, but this bag happened to catch my eye during a recent trip to Denver. I was at Pigtrain Coffee at Denver’s Union Station and this was the freshest coffee there so it was a no-brainer, even though I usually think “what’s the point” about decaf… but I […]

Review: Avoca Coffee Roasters Misty Valley (Fort Worth, Texas)

A recent trip to Denton gave me time to visit Shift Coffee, which has featured interesting roasters in the past like Kuma and Chocolate Fish. This particular visit, they were featuring bags from local Fort Worth roaster Avoca, so I opted for Misty Valley, which is a blend of two Ethiopian coffees (Yirgacheffe and Gedio). […]

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 […]
