We get asked by friends and family where to buy coffee a lot. It’s a tough question! It’s easy to lose track of just how many incredible, fresh, vibrant coffees are out there. Every week, we ask our advertising roasting partners for coffee recommendations they’re most excited about. Here’s this week’s collection of some of the most interesting whole bean coffee offerings available from talented roasters across the globe.

Camber Coffee Roasters: Colombia Las Flores Sidra—This Sidra lot from the Las Flores farm in Huila is a cornucopia of potent botanical flavors. Aromatically, the cup is heavily floral with notes of rose and jasmine mingling with dried orange peel and clove. In the cup, we taste syrupy notes of peach nectar, cooked pear, kiwi, and woodsy pine.

Greater Goods Coffee Co.

greater goods limited release sprudge roaster's village

Greater Goods Roasting: Rung’eto PB—Rarely has a coffee release synced up with the start of a season quite like this one. Hailing from Kirinyaga County in central Kenya, this peaberry lot is the warm, comforting, hot cocoa in front of the fire – the spirit of winter in coffee form. Peaberry makes up about 10% of Kenya’s coffee export and is highly sought out for its depth of sweetness and a thick, syrupy body. You can enjoy your winter days with notes of golden apple, black treacle, and red currant jam.

Madcap Coffee Company

 

madcap lake effect sprudge roaster's village

Madcap Coffee Company: Lake Effect—When creating our seasonal blends like Lake Effect, we aim to capture the feelings and flavors reminiscent of that particular season. The blend should highlight the strength of the components, as well as present a new tasting experience.

Lake Effect is inspired by the bright and sunny glimpses we experience during some of Michigan’s harshest winter days. To achieve such a profile, this year’s Lake Effect is an equal blend of coffee from three producers in East Africa. We rely on Samuel Degelo and Halo Hartume from Ethiopia to bring in familiar citrus fruits and sweet floral qualities to the blend. Tano Ndogo from Kenya provides a juicy mouthfeel and characteristics of rich stone fruits to balance the blend. The delicate final cup promises us that spring is just in the distance, with notes of blood orange, apricot, and elderflower.

Night Swim Coffee

aurora borealis roasters village sprudge

Night Swim Coffee: Blue Orchid – Sumatra—Typically we expect specialty grade coffees to come from mountainous regions along the equator. Brazil, Colombia, Honduras, and Ethiopia rank among the largest coffee producing countries in the world, but I think people would be surprised to know that both Vietnam and Indonesia are #2 and #4 on that list. Connecting people to the places where coffee comes from, our core effort at Night Swim, provides us some unique opportunities to tell the stories of all kinds of coffee, not just ones we’re familiar with or are currently popular in the US market.

Over the next few months, we’ll begin highlighting coffees from China, El Salvador, Tanzania, Bolivia and this beautiful coffee from Indonesia. You can find coffees from these regions roasted by great roasters around the globe, but they’re new to Night Swim. I think a lot of coffee drinkers are probably really unfamiliar with coffees from Asia, and as we started thinking about how we wanted to focus our coffee menu for the upcoming months, we were simply excited to drink coffees that we don’t interact with very often.

This is a semi-washed or “wet-hulled” coffee from Sumatra, Indonesia. It’s fruity-sweet, tropical, and finishes like one of our favorite candy bars. We’re thrilled to offer this first installment in our initiative to highlight underrepresented coffee growing regions!

Olympia Coffee Roasters

olympia jose landaverde gesha natural sprudge roaster's village
