Review: Oddly Correct Colombia Miguel Cubillos Honey Process (Kansas City, Missouri)

I had another one of my brief audition-related coffee hiatuses recently and the first coffee shop I went to when I was able to start up again was Oddly Correct. I don’t remember how I first heard about this roaster/shop (probably from one of those online lists of “best coffee roasters in Kansas City”), but […]

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: 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: Ozone Coffee Colombia Finca Villa Norena (London, England)

Review: Slightly Coffee Roasters Ethiopia Torea Village (Eugene, Oregon)

The craft coffee market is saturated these days with excellent small roasters, so it can be difficult to get noticed, even if your product is top-notch. It’s trendy these days to see coffee roasters using modern and minimalist designs for their bags and logos, so Slightly Coffee Roasters’ packaging definitely stands out from the pack with their […]

Review: Quills Coffee Ecuador La Papaya (Louisville, Kentucky)

I’m always on the lookout for new coffee roasters to try, and this one came across my radar thanks to my friend Chloé’s recommendation. Quills is based in Louisville, Kentucky, and they have 4 cafes nationwide (2 in Kentucky, and 2 in Indiana). Fun fact – they are partnering up with Alabama-based artisan popsicle company […]

Review: Victrola Ethiopia Yirgacheffe “YIRGZ” (Seattle, Washington)

My first experience with Victrola’s beans was their Kenya Nyeri Tambaya Peaberry, which was NOT a favorite of mine, but I have heard enough good things about this roaster that I decided that I needed to pick up a different bag of theirs while in Seattle. I am fond of washed Ethiopian coffees, so I decided […]
