Xmas Extras!

The last two batches of La Esmeralda Special have sold out faster than anticipated.

So for those seeking a really special coffee experience over the holidays we'll be doing an extra roast of the Esmeralda tomorrow. Webshop orders will be sent out straight after roasting, but cannot be guaranteed to be delivered before Christmas. It will of course as usual also be available in our coffee shop.

The Esmeralda is now also included in our special offer the Taster Package containing 6 of our coffees.

The only coffee not included is the limited edition Cypresal Espresso, which we're also roasting again tomorrow. We've had amazing feedback on this espresso, and are happy to see how often we've been roasting it. Read more about it here.

Lastly, for those looking for last minute Christmas gifts, we've put up an extra Barista Course on the webshop. January and February are already sold out, but there's still room in March and April.

New Crop Daterra

The 2010 harvest of Daterra is here!

The harvest at Daterra came a bit early this year and thus we've already received our container of this year's crop. Usually it takes a few months longer before the coffee is processed, dried, rested and shipped, but we're happy to have the new lot in before Christmas.

You can read about the visit to Daterra back in August here:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

I also finally got around to putting the video clips I took together into a small video. Sorry for my lack of editing skills, but I just wanted to show some of the stuff that's going on at the farm during harvest.

The new crop Daterra Sweet Collection will be on our second espresso grinder in the coffee shop for at least the next week. We hope you'll enjoy it!

Cypresal Espresso

Available from today is our single microlot espresso from Finca Vista Hermosa:

Cypresal Espresso

Chocolate, roasted almonds, caramel, toffee and fully ripe oranges are some of the flavours that come to mind. It's totally right for Christmas. A beautifully balanced, sweet and delicious espresso.

This is a limited microlot and we're planning to roast this the year out.

It's available in our coffee shop and webshop from today.
