Review: Heart Coffee Roasters Panama Geisha Hacienda la Esmerelda (Portland, Oregon)

This is a coffee I was absolutely salivating to try as soon as I saw an email alert that it was available! The first Geisha coffee I ever reviewed for this blog was from Square One Coffee Roasters, and it was their Panama La Esmerelda Boquete. It was my top-ranked coffee of 2015 for its […]

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 […]

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 standsĀ out from the pack with their […]
