Single Origin Offerings
Single origin coffees can be amazing and can really showcase the breadth and depth of flavors possible depending on growing region, processing method, roasting technique, and a million other variables. We love single origin coffees and will feature some outstanding examples throughout the year. However, in order to ensure we are using only the best beans, each will be available for a limited time. Check back often to see what’s roasting and mark your calendars if you have a favorite or see something that piques your interest!

Cup Qualities: Juicy
Flavors: Blueberry, nougat
The natural process Illubabor Dabi is a very unique coffee and the first dry process coffee we have brought in as a single origin offering. Though it has some earthy base notes, it showcases the fruity character that the natural process elicits. The reason for this is the beans are dried with the cherry remaining on the bean and then the fruit is pulped off, unlike washed coffees (probably what you are used to) where the fruit is removed before washing and drying the beans.
At City+ the brewed coffee yields big berry notes that are perhaps a bit muddled at this stage, but are somewhere in the blackberry/blueberry flavor matrix. The cooling coffee has much in the way of cooked fruit intimations, berry being the most obvious, but others to note include cantaloupe, musky chermioya, and canned plums. It isn’t a pure fruit bomb like some other natural processes I’ve had, but I think that’s what lends it a little more body, smoothness, and depth that make it a beautiful brewed coffee, but also a wild single origin espresso option.
If you’ve never had a natural process coffee, I think it’s worth a try just to experience the other side of the processing spectrum.
12 oz bag
Cup Qualities: Tea-like
Flavors: Pecan, Snow Pea
This is a pretty classic Yirgacheffe if you ask me. It’s got a nice earthy flavor and black tea-like mouthfeel. It has a brisk acidity without being fruity along with a crisp vegetal quality reminiscent of snow pea. This is a pretty complex coffee and very much on the light side of the roast.
12 oz bag
Cup Qualities: Structured
Flavors: Graham Cracker, Cocoa
Never had a coffee from Cameroon? You’re not alone. I don’t see them often and can’t always bring in a new coffee when they ARE available. This little gem came in a really small lot and I’ve played with a few different expressions of it. Ultimately, I settled on an ever so slightly darker roast at the edge of City+ and Full City. This brought out a ton of sweetness, cocoa goodness, and a rich graham cracker base. Don’t expect it to taste like a s’more unless you dress it up with some sugar and maybe whipped cream! Seriously though, I think this is quite a crowd pleaser and will go fast once it catches on. Get it while it lasts.
This coffee shows both sweet and savory notes in the aroma and cup, and with an essence that is in many ways like pumpkin pie. There's buttery crust smell in both the dry fragrance and wet crust - flaked pie crust - tinged with baking spice and nice core coffee bittersweetness. At City+ the cup has pleasant body, and conveys succinct brown sugar sweetness with a roasted barley note. A nice savory-sweet mix of baked sweet yam and raw sugar is furnished as it cools down a bit, making way for enduring sweet and nutmeg-spiced finish.
