Review: Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters Guatemala Huehuetenango La Esperanza (Dallas, Texas)

This bag from Noble Coyote was another Whole Foods purchase, picked up during the holidays when I needed to have lots of coffee on hand to keep me going! I was making a fair bit of coffee to share with friends at a gig during this time frame, and I have found that Guatemalan coffees […]

Review: Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters Guatemala Providencia (Dallas, Texas)

Because I tend to drink my coffee at home, my visits to Dallas-area coffee shops are less about getting coffee to drink and are more about me searching for freshly roasted beans. I internally cheer anytime I find beans that are roasted within a week, but Crooked Tree Coffeehouse managed to have these OCCR beans […]

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: Sweet Bloom Coffee Roasters Colombia Huila Timana (Denver, Colorado)

I first came across Sweet Bloom Coffee Roasters while in San Clemente, California last October. While there, I visited a local coffee shop called Bear Coast Coffee that was right near the beach. I was honestly just looking for any coffee at all (I wasn’t being picky) so stumbling across a cafe that served craft […]

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 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 […]
