Only a short few weeks till Thanksgiving break, and there's a lot of roasting to get done before then! Remember to get in touch with our staff if you need additional orders to bolster your supply.

It's always better around the holidays to get orders in early if you can, due to the increased possibility of delays with shipping or at the warehouses.

Give us a call! We're here every day, M-F 8:30am - 4:30pm to assist.

Here's another fun stat from the National Coffee Association to start your week:

Drip coffee makers continue to be the favored device among homer brewers. Despite strong popularity over the last several years single cup brewers couldn't dethrone the mighty drip coffee machine and came in 2nd... Cold brewing was 3rd & espresso 4th.

So coffee lovers what do you think? 🤔☕️☕️☕️⁠

Do you know the best way to store your roasted coffee? It's surprisingly something that most of us get wrong. Refrigerator/freezer? NEVER!! Keep it simple. Sealed, away from direct sun, and preferably in a separate cabinet from your spices to avoid cross-contamination of flavors.

Retail bags work good too. You don't absolutely need your own containers unless you want some swag for your pantry shelves!

Here's a perfect example of thriving naturally grown arabica under a forested shade canopy. When grown among larger trees, arabica coffee thrives in the natural shade and with the support of the broader ecosystem. Taken at Rancho San Francisco estate in Chiapas, Mexico this image illustrates the success possible when coffee producers utilize generational, 'old-world' techniques to achieve good yields with excellent quality cups.

Here's some cool news for you on National Coffee Day:

World Coffee Research recently announced their launch of a public database of the genetic fingerprinting of arabica coffee varieties. This is a significant development with a low-cost potential to identify as yet unknown or mislabeled varieties.

For all you coffee nerds out there, check out the Variety Catalog at WorldCoffeeResearch.org. It's a great resource for anyone interested in learning more about the world of arabica coffee varieties.

Photos from Papua New Guinea's Eastern Highlands just don't do it justice. PNG holds a very special place in our heart. It's such a beautiful place that few people know, and what a great picture to start off the week.

Great news coffee lovers. The FDA is asking for comments on a new rule proposal to allow coffee and coffee beverages to promote claims of being "healthy." There are many studies that have illustrated various health benefits associated with coffee consumption, so we'd love to see this succeed.

One thing we love about our VCT exclusive Costa Rica El Tigre is the meticulous care taken in processing the beans, as exemplified in this closeup. Catuai, Caturra, Typica varieties are stored in parchment right up until the moment of export when they're dry milled and packed. The result is a top quality Costa Rica cup that arrives stateside at peak freshness.

Everybody has their favorite go-to cup, but whether it's a blend or single origin a pour over device will help bring out the full flavor profile. There are any number of different style of devices, chemex, hario, bodem, etc. No matter which one you use, they provide a great way to discover a cup's best qualities.

What you roast is equally important as why you roast. When it comes to cup score and quality, every coffee that has your name attached to it should be just as much of a knockout, regardless of its origin.

Did you know some studies have shown there to be a positive health impact just from the color green? Imagine taking that to a whole new level, surrounded by coffee trees and these beautiful green leaves. Farm life is very, very hard but they are some of the most beautiful places you'll ever experience.

What can you say except some baristas are just incredibly talented at this. If you've ever tried your hand at making milk drinks, you know just getting the milk and pour right is difficult enough without attempting the art. It's a skill that truly takes time to develop. Very well done here!
