Review: Sterling Coffee Roasters Ethiopia Shilicho (Portland, Oregon)

Shutterbug and I were wanting to revisit an old favorite recently with Sterling’s Blendo Stupendo espresso beans, and while we made that order, I poked around their website to see what other coffees they had available. I loved, loved, LOVED the Kenya Nyeri Gachatha AA I had purchased from them before so I was hoping […]

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: 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: 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: Onyx Coffee Lab Colombia Eduardo Lizcano: Washed (Springdale, Arkansas)

Method Coffee has saved me on more than a couple of occasions when I have to be alert at a gig in downtown Dallas and I am running short on sleep. They also have an interesting rotating selection of roasters, and on my most recent visit, they were featuring beans from Onyx Coffee Lab. Note […]

Review: Has Bean Coffee Malawi Msese Wetmill (Stafford, England)

I had a whirlwind trip earlier this summer to the north of England, and I was lucky enough to spend a couple of days in Manchester. As a fan of bands like the Smiths, Joy Division, New Order, the Stone Roses, and James, the city of Manchester is a place I had long wanted to […]

Review: Roseline Coffee Colombia El Ventilador (Portland, Oregon)

I ordered this bag at the same time I ordered the Roseline Ecuador Rosa Encarnacion, and I knew that as bright and divisive as the Rosa Encarnacion was, this Colombian coffee was likely to be completely different. I tend to gravitate toward Colombian coffees when I want something tasty and interesting but not too outside […]

Review: Klatch Coffee Panama Altieri Washed Geisha (Rancho Cucamonga, California)

Regular readers of this blog know that I’m a fan of Klatch. I don’t order from them very often, simply because there are so many great roasters out there to try, but I’ve never had a cup of Klatch Coffee that I didn’t like. Some of their roasts have been among my favorite cups of […]

Review: Flight Coffee Kenya Rutuma (Wellington, New Zealand)

Recently, I had the opportunity to travel to the North Island of New Zealand. What a heartbreakingly beautiful country (and I know I didn’t even come close to seeing even 10% of its beauty!). About half of my trip was spent in the capital city of Wellington. Wellington is an incredible city – it reminded […]
