Gimme! Coffee

Ithaca, New York

Every cloud has a silver lining, and in this case, fantastic coffee also grows beneath it. These beans, farmed by Agustín Cruz, come from a tiny seven-acre farm located in a cloud forest in Chijchipani, Bolivia. The trio of Catuai, Typica, and Catimor varieties were grown under the misty canopy in a region known for its outstanding coffee production. Gimme! Coffee from Ithaca, New York, lovingly roasts the beans to bring out their gentle tropical sweetness. The coffee is delicate and balanced, with soft flavors of toasted marshmallow and mild tropical fruits like pineapple and banana.

We feature truly small-batch, seasonal coffees. So there might not be any left. But that's a good thing! Only big corporate factories have the same stuff all year round.

Lone Pine Coffee Roasters

Bend, Oregon

Nestled discreetly in a quiet alley in Bend, Oregon, sits the small and unassuming Lone Pine Coffee Roasters. The cafe, run by husband and wife duo, Scott and Anna Witham, meticulously selects, roasts, and packages all of their own coffees. This Bourbon variety, from the Cocatu Co-op in Tumba, Rwanda, was roasted gently at a soft heat to coax out as much depth as possible. The result is a flavor that develops as the coffee cools. Round cherry and red apple acidity complement dulce de leche sweetness in this soft, silky cup. A clean, wonderfully complex finish encompasses caramel, spices, tobacco and lingering floral notes.

Social Coffee & Tea Co.

Richmond Hill, Ontario

These beans are proof that even a simple morning cup of coffee can be a rewarding social experience. Social Coffee & Tea Co. in Ontario, Canada, values their coffee as a social process from start to finish – from the mindful, cooperative way it is produced to the egalitarian way it is enjoyed. It’s fitting then that this cup contains a party of three different varieties from a number of small farms in Paez, Colombia. The combination makes for a soft raspberry syrup flavor that transitions into a round and complex cup with a dark chocolate finish.
