I was excited to go, since I was last in Nicaragua in 2007 while working with Equal Exchange, a fair trade coffee, tea and chocolate company. While that learning trip was all too short, I was still strongly impacted. It’s one thing to talk about collaboration and improving livelihoods, but a whole other thing to meet first-hand the farmers producing coffee that my company imported, roasted, and that I promoted in my job.

Some of you have already discovered this tasty roll.  Others have been telling us how much you want more savory options, like SunnyV.   This savory delight is made with a buttery, flaky croissant, smoked beef sausage, béchamel sauce, Swiss cheese, and is a good source of protein. It is the ultimate savory snack/breakfast/lunch/all three. So next time you’re getting a little “hangry”, stop, take a deep breath, and eat a sausage croissant roll. And then smile. :) Thanks for…

    Consumption of coffee, or hot beverages, has dramatically increased over the last decade. Drinking well-made, piping hot coffee is not something you have to go to a drive-thru to get. Most people go to a drive-thru to only order what they know they can finish, instead of making a pot of coffee that goes to waste. The introduction of single-serve coffee brewing systems made your morning cup of coffee personally convenient. Approximately 12 percent of adults in the United States drink coffee daily from a single-serve brewing system, according to the National Coffee Association. Unfortunately,…

Outside, the waterfall that has been my companion for the past month kept roaring on in a gentle, white noisy sort of way. The sound and light were enough to tell me that the night had left, and it just might be time to start my day.  So what did I do? I rolled over, closed my eyes, and went back to sleep.  I woke up this morning at around 7:30. The light was STILL streaming through my water stained windows, only this time it was noticeably more bright. Too bright actually. The…

    It’s very important when you get the bill at Caffè Florian to remember that you’re not buying a $30 coffee, and are instead renting a seat from them in St Mark’s Square for a while that just happens to come with coffee and a live band. Caffè Florian is a Venetian institution, one of the oldest coffee houses in Europe. It has been in operation since 1720, and has been patronised by Lord Byron, Proust and Dickens. It’s located in St Mark’s Square, which provides excellent opportunities for people watching. While we were in Venice, we stopped there to cool off…

    Five hundred billion cups of coffee are consumed every year worldwide, but few people know much about the world’s second most traded commodity (behind oil!). So here are five quick facts about how coffee gets from farms around the world to you.1.     Coffee comes from a fruit. If you’ve never seen a coffee plant in person, it’s pretty amazing. Coffee plants grow around the world, but the best coffee is grown in mountainous regions that receive predictable and abundant rain. Once a year, these plants sprout a bright red, cherry-like fruit. Farmers in Central America, for…

    Americans’ taste in coffee might be getting more high-end—with a growing fixation on perfectly roasted beans, pricier caffeinated concoctions, and artisan coffee brewers—but it turns out a surprisingly big part of the world is going in the opposite direction: towards instant coffee. Sales of instant coffee—the kind that dissolves in hot water and has been popularized by brands like Nescafe—have nearly tripled since 2000, according to data from market research firm Euromonitor. The world consumed nearly $31 billion-worth last year, and is expected to drink more than $35…

    Espresso is one of the best ways to brew coffee. Espresso is usually enjoyed as a part of a specialty coffee drink like a latte or a cafe mocha. Many people enjoy espresso with a bit of cream or sugar but I prefer to drink like my coffee, black. What is Espresso? Espresso is brewed coffee. It is not by definition a different bean but a different brew method. It is smaller than a cup of coffee but it can be just as strong in terms of caffeine. It is a small amount of finely ground coffee brewed with nearly boiling water. It is usually .8 to 1 1/2 ounces of liquid in total. In order to brew…

  • Espresso is NOT a Bean, It’s a Brew Method

    Jason Coffee
    7 Jun 2014 | 9:05 pm
    Espresso is one of the best ways to brew coffee. Espresso is usually enjoyed as a part of a specialty coffee drink like a latte or a cafe mocha. Many people enjoy espresso with a bit of cream or sugar but I prefer to drink like my coffee, black. What is Espresso? Espresso is brewed coffee. It is not by definition a different bean but a different brew method. It is smaller than a cup of coffee but it can be just as strong in terms of caffeine. It is a small amount of finely ground coffee brewed with nearly boiling water. It is usually .8 to 1 1/2 ounces of liquid in total. In order to brew…

    The old adage of “value in, value out,” applies more so to coffee than most other aspects of life. You’re doing yourself no favors with that cheap electric  grinder you picked up on sale last year. There’s an unofficial rule that for every dollar you spend on an espresso machine, half that should go toward a coffee grinder. The best grinders put out a consistent grind across the very fine to coarse spectrum. Combined with freshly roasted beans, the end result is a coffee experience fit for a king. Yet many coffee drinkers are still using blade-based grinders that…

I like to live life off the beaten track both literally and figuratively speaking, and love all things exotic. Coffee, therefore, is no exception…but the question prior to this discovery, is where can I source it.

  • Sea Island Coffee Hawaii Kona Coffee Review

    14 Aug 2014 | 8:44 am
    Recently Pete from Pete Drinks had the chance to review our Hawaii Kona Coffee. "Brewed, the sweetness is reduced and a more fruity character of sharp redcurrants starts to put in an appearance.In the mouth, it’s surprisingly delicate; a soft acidity balanced with gentle red fruit hits the tongue first, fading to a tea-like tannic finish. While it’s on the mild side for my normal tastes, it’s refreshing and goes well with a hot sunny day in a way that a big, aggressive coffee isn’t."

It sounds obvious, but there are many ways to skin a cat. The lazy version: pour hot coffee brewed the usual way over ice.

  • Loose Leaf Iced Tea: You can brew it!

    Kate
    11 Jul 2014 | 1:03 pm
    For most tea drinkers (in this country anyway), tea equals tea bags. Unless you’ve happened upon a bum bag, you may have never seen what’s inside. And if you have had one bust open, you probably think that tea is a dusty mess. If your pursuit of a better cup has led you to loose leaf teas, you know that’s not so. Whole tea leaves are quite a bit larger than anything you will find in a tea bag. Why is this important? The aromatic oils responsible for flavor evaporate quickly when tea leaves are broken. Whole leaves retain their flavor longer and a larger bag, or no bag at all…

    I haven’t dealt much with different types of water with coffee brewing. Yes, there is a slight difference in taste most of the time between tap and bottled purified water, but the difference has mostly been minimal. Until now. As my palate has evolved over the last six months, so has my ability to detect flavor changes due to water, and recently it’s been very noticeable. I’ve had a few cups in the last couple of days that have left me questioning, “Why does the coffee I brew at Yellow House taste so much better than the coffee I brew at my house?” Our water at…

At times like these I am reminded of the words of Gandalf the White: No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take.

I recently looked back through the notebook and here are some interesting takeaways from my first roasting log. My earlier roasts including a lot of notes about what I was smelling. Grass, hay, popcorn, chocolate, burnt popcorn and kettle corn are a few examples. I tinkered more early on with the speed of the fan on the SR500. My later roasts were a little more “dialed in” so there was less tinkering. My roasts got longer and so did my quality. I think this…

    A number of years back I got into craft beers. I dove dip into the community for a little while. I never tried my hand at brewing but I tried a lot of different beers. I went away for a couple of years and gave up beer completely. I gave up grains/wheat/gluten completely. Well, I returned a couple months ago. While I am still Paleo and never eat wheat, I do have a few craft beers every weekend. The return has been great but what I found amazing was how much growth the craft beer industry went through over those couple of years. Smaller breweries are barely small now. The distribution seems to…

    I have been roasting on a much more consistent basis for the past couple of months. Why did I go through a period of months where I roasted very little? I got spread too thin with trying to keep up with the “coffee world”. I was too interested in what new devices were popping up on Kickstarter. I was pre-occupied with trying coffees from tons of different roasters (although this really helped me improve my palette for tasting coffees). And, I cared too much about what new things were happening in an industry that quite honestly is growing too fast to keep up with. You see, I got away from…
  • Do Inconsistent Roasts Matter

    Matt Brock
    21 Jul 2014 | 10:33 am
    Since we moved in March I have been able to roast in our garage which is an overall much better experience than trying to do it in a kitchen. I have had some really good success with a couple of Costa Rica Helsars from Sweet Maria’s. The one thing I did have to account for, although only slightly, was the change in the ambient temperature. The garage is much hotter (or colder) than the house. This has shown to change my roast times a bit. But, since I tend to roast more on sight and sound than on specific “recipes” it isn’t a huge problem. I continue to use the FreshRoast SR500 and I…

  • Top 5 Espresso Beans To Taste Atleast Once

    Amit
    17 Aug 2014 | 9:14 pm
    Beans roasted for espresso in particular are roasted longer than regular beans so that the oils in the beans are brought to the surface. All these attributes add to the taste of your espresso drink. Espresso is a coffee that is made by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground and compacted coffee beans. Beans can be of different origins or roasted at different levels, using different methods and still produce authentic espresso. Espresso is the base for many other drinks such as café latte, cappuccino or café mocha. A fresh cup of espresso drink…

    Sulawesi Kalossi Sulawesi Kalossi coffee comes from the central mountains of the island of, you guessed it, Sulawesi.  A large weird finger-like shaped island in central Indonesia. Due to it’s climate, location and soil conditions coffees from this region of the world are unique and unpredictable, which is a good thing! Kalossi comes from the town of the same name, a prominent coffee trading hub on the island.  It’s a way of authenticating that this is really what it says it is. It can be hard to get good Sulawesi coffees, as the area is plagued with problems, thieves and rough…

    Supremo Indeed Colombian coffee is world famous for being excellent.  Colombia ranks 3rd in world coffee production, and there is no secret why. Colombian coffee is delicious. Back in the day, there was tons of coffee coming out of Colombia, it was high quality yet cheap. This fact was capitalized on by the coffee companies slapping “100% Colombian” on the bag or can as a sign of quality. These beans are called ‘supremo’ which refers to the size of the bean.  Supremo beans are collected from various farms all over and are lumped together creating a very interesting…

    The Princess and the Peaberry Tanzanian Peaberry coffee may not be royalty exactly, but it is something very special indeed.  In case you might be wondering, a ‘peaberry’ coffee is quite different from normal coffee beans. When the bean is forming inside the cherry, it normally contains two halves, forming what we know most beans to look like.  Normally the bean, which is the seed is actually two seeds and form two flat ‘sides’.  With a peaberry only one seed develops and nothing is there to ‘flatten it’, and the result is a pea shaped bean instead. This…

  • What’s the Best Thermal Coffee Maker?

    Steve
    16 Aug 2014 | 7:48 am
    The core of any discerning coffee drinker’s arsenal is of course the coffee maker, of which many varieties have evolved throughout the years. For the longest time, drip-style coffee makers have dominated the market, thanks to their simplicity and versatility. However, due to the glass carafe container and hot plate warmer design of these machines, coffee left to sit in the maker usually turns bitter-tasting after a short while – something most people don’t really appreciate. The thermal coffee maker beautifully solves this dilemma; it takes the wisdom of drip coffee brewing in…
