Finca El Dragon, Tarrazu, Costa Rica. Classic Costa Rica…with a plus. Luis Alberto Monge Urena owns Finca El Dragon, a farm that rests near the top of a mountain whose long crest resembles the back of a dragon. Trekking through the dense triple canopy of coffee, banana and tall shade trees leaves even the fittest clutching their knees for a breather after steep climbs and narrow switchbacks up near 1900 meters. But the coffee…oh is the coffee ever worth it. It is clean and sparkling and carries a buttery nougat undertone beneath the otherwise crisp, honeydew notes. Costa Rica has been a leader in the “honey revolution” with mills becoming quite precise in their processing of the mucilage layer surrounding the beans themselves. White Honey; Yellow Honey; Red Honey; Black Honey. Each of these approximates how much of the fruit mucilage layer was left to dry and leave its sweet attributes on the bean during processing. Yellow Honey processing means about 25% of the mucilage/fruit layer has been left on the bean to dry after hulling.
Madan Estate, Western Highlands, Papua New Guinea. This year’s edition of a Brown classic is a bit of a twist. Its low-toned sweetness is still there, but trades some of the heavy bodied sweet tobacco leaf for cleaner cedar and blackstrap molasses tones.
Red Scorpion has a rich flavor with deep woody notes. This medium roast coffee is powerful for those who need a kick-start. Blended with Chihuahuan desert herbs and cactus spices.
One of our lightest roasts, the Hippie blend is all organically grown and Fair Trade coffee beans. A blend of Sumatra, Peru and Papua New Guinea, it is perfect at home, at the market, on campus, or in the back of your VW bus.
Developed for the BALTIMORE CITY FARMERS’ MARKET, the Market Blend is a medium roasted mix of Ethiopian and Guatemalan coffees. Its subtle sweetness and slightly chocolaty flavor appeals to just about every coffee drinker.
The Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union serves over 40,000 farmers in Ethiopia; it is focused on providing electricity to remote areas and building schools. One of our lightest roasts, the organic, shade-grown, dry processed Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has a sweet, floral flavor.
