I have a few customers that purchase the sample packs from us every few weeks because they want the freshest coffee possible. They don’t go through much, so for them, the smaller pack works. The small packs (especially in whole bean) keep the coffee EXACTLY how it was when it was roasted for 6 weeks. After that, you get a little bit of oil coming out of the beans, but it still tastes perfectly fresh for up to one year.Gourmet Organic Coffee Sampler
Without fail, every coffee demo I have done, I am asked if we “grow the beans.” It’s a reasonable question because coffee is just something you expect to be able to grow. However, coffee is a remarkable crop with a complex and misunderstood growing environment.
In general, coffee is grown between the Tropic of Cancer, and the Tropic of Capricorn. These regions are rich with volcanic soil, consistent sunlight exposure, and consistent moisture. There are a few outliers, like Puerto Rico, and California, but there are a few things these regions are struggling with.
If something is perfect, leave it alone. If it isn’t fix it! With this in mind, I am hard at work putting together our brand new gift basket collection for the upcoming holiday season.
We packed up and moved the entire operation to Pistol River, Oregon from Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho at the end of June 2018. This is our adventure…
In April, we were hit with a second great loss, I lost my dad (and wonderful dog). No one saw the loss coming. In an instant life went from it’s normal level of stress to a volcanic eruption meets a Super Cell tornado. To quote the great Bugs Bunny, “That was a big boom there, Wiley.”
