Review: PT’s Coffee Roasting Company Ethiopia Gedeo Natural (Topeka, Kansas)

Kansas might not be the state in the U. S. that first comes to mind when thinking about states with great coffee roasters, but I’ve been wanting to investigate coffee from PT’s for quite some time now, after seeing them mentioned on multiple “best of” lists over the past couple of years. It’s a new […]

Review: Corvus Everyman Seasonal Espresso Blend (Denver, Colorado)

On a recent visit to Method Coffee in Dallas, they had fresh bags of this in stock, so I decided to check them out. I had not previously heard of Corvus, but the independent DFW area coffee shops that I frequent have not steered me wrong yet! Poking around their Mission page, I learned that Corvus prefers […]

Review: Porch Culture Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Natural (Tyler, Texas)

Music is my mood-altering substance of choice, even moreso than coffee. It encompasses nearly every waking moment of my day… I am constantly listening to music, making music, imagining and striving for an unattainable perfection in music.

How can you put into words what happens to you when you hear your musical soulmate? That’s what tasting this amazing roast from […]

Review: Case Coffee Roasters Guatemala Bella Carmona Antigua (Ashland, Oregon)

During my recent trip to Portland, I was sorely tempted to pick up a bag of coffee from Case Coffee Roasters when I spotted it at the Barista location I visited, but I had to exercise some restraint (if you can call 6 bags of coffee in 24 hours restraint). Ultimately, I decided to wait […]

Review: Origen Coffee Roasters Tanzania Tarime (Escondido, California)

Thanks again to my friend Erin for these beans! If you read my review of Origen’s Mexico Oaxaca beans, you’ll remember I noted that this roaster seems to roast on the darker side, as the beans were pretty dark and shiny. The roast level is definitely darker than what seems to be the norm amongst popular […]

Review: Eiland Coffee Roasters Ethiopia Sidamo Ardi (Richardson, Texas)

This past Sunday was the first annual Dallas Coffee Day, and by all accounts it was a smashing success. What a great event! Eight fantastic Dallas-area coffee roasters gathered to celebrate their shared collective passion for craft coffee and the steady elevation of coffee culture in Dallas/Fort Worth. There was such a friendly and welcoming […]
