Review: Olympia Coffee Burundi Long Miles Reserve (Olympia, Washington)

This is the second coffee I picked up from Fleet Coffee in Austin. Olympia Coffee is a roaster I’ve seen before in my travels but I somehow had never gotten around to trying. I had high hopes though, given that I’d seen some rave reviews (most recently, a glowing review of Olympia’s Little Buddy Blend […]

Review: Prismatic Coffee El Salvador Finca El Nazareth Natural (Albuquerque, New Mexico)

My last coffee from my visit to Albuquerque was this bag from Prismatic Coffee. Prismatic’s cafe is a thoroughly modern space with lovely touches spread throughout – it felt very Instagrammable, if you’re into that sort of thing. Two things of note: They create stroopwafels by hand, in both salted caramel and fruit flavors (seasonally). […]

Review: Klatch Coffee 25th Anniversary Blend (Upland, California)

I have a soft spot for Klatch Coffee – back in the early days of this blog (March 2015, the first month that I started writing coffee reviews), Klatch’s Panama Elida Honey was the first coffee that I sampled that made a strong, strong impression on me, and that same year, I named their Golden […]

Review: Methodical Coffee Costa Rica La Pastora (Greenville, South Carolina)

Recently I was in Tyler, Texas for work and made my obligatory stop at The Foundry Coffeehouse for my morning ritual. I opted to get a bag from Methodical Coffee as I noticed they were stocking this roaster again. However, I had to do a lot of label and packaging scrutinizing to ensure I got […]

Review: Square Mile Coffee Roasters Ethiopia Mormora (London, England)

I believe I first heard of Square Mile Coffee Roasters back when I used to do a lot of browsing on the CoffeeGeek forums, to do research for notable roasters and to gather advice for what kind of grinder and espresso machine I should invest in. I don’t have a lot of time to visit […]

Review: Ritual Coffee Roasters Guatemala Candelaria (San Francisco, California)

On my recent trip to San Diego, I was wandering through the Little Italy Farmers’ Market when I spotted a sign outside of the Frost Me Cafe and Bakery, proudly displaying the Ritual Coffee logo. I may have squealed a little bit… I quite like the beans I’ve tried from Ritual (their Day Drinker Espresso […]

Review: Ruby Coffee Roasters Ethiopia Gesha Village Bangi Gori Gesha (Nelsonville, Wisconsin)

This particular coffee, from the Ruby Coffee Roasters website, intrigued me as soon as I read about it. I haven’t had the chance to try too many Ethiopian Geisha (also spelled Gesha) coffees, and this one was pretty reasonably priced, in my opinion ($23 for 12 oz). Most of the Geishas I’ve had have come […]

Review: Roseline Coffee Ecuador Rosa Encarnacion (Portland, Oregon)

I’ve reviewed Roseline coffees multiple times before, and I think of all the coffee companies I’ve done repeat reviews for, Roseline is among the most consistently stellar (others I would include in that category are Klatch and Heart). I’ve gotten their beans in retail shops located both in Dallas and in their hometown of Portland, but […]
