Coffee

Our coffee is certified organic and primarily fair trade.  We offer five different roasts of coffee.  Our Light Blend is a classic breakfast style coffee with a bright pop of flavor and a mellow ending.  Our Medium Blend is three organic coffees blended for a light bodied cup distinguished by a bright flavor up front and a mild finish.  Our Dark Blend is a west-coast roast style which makes this coffee deep, rich and robust.  Crafted from South American and Indonesian coffees, this blend is memorable.  Our Decaf Blend is a hearty decaf that offers a great well-rounded flavor without the caffeine and is water-processed to retain the original flavor of the beans.  Our Espresso is a rich blend of organic coffees that brings an intense flavor and has a robust depth and subtle sweet chocolate notes that offer a memorable taste.

Awarded “Best Beer in the World” in 2008, this slightly malty ale has a nice spicy touch that is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end there is a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.
