    Bali beans from the Kintamani Highlands are loud of mouth and natural in body. The mouth is a sweetly bitter bite of blueberry and earth. Bitterness stays on the back and side of tongue. Great iced.

    The Costa Rica La Amistad beans have a light to medium body and soft mouth. A sweet mix of earthy soil and nutty flavors is complemented by mild, back of tongue acidity from floral notes.

    The Uganda beans from the Gumutindo Mt. Elgon region have the fruit flavor of African coffees as expected with an earth flavored light-medium body. The fruit flavor is a soft yet potent melon.

    The cold brew ice coffee offered at this location is a blend of the Blue Java and Columbia beans. This mix has a dark mouth feel with notes of hazelnut and smoky earth flavors.

    The Alma Negra beans from Costa Rica are a limited batch of honey processed (some fermentation) Central American beans. The cup has a nutty body and is charged w/ a dark raspberry mouth;mid tongue.

    The Blue Java bean is a medium roast that dazzles the palette with a variety of bitter earthy tones. This cup is light of mouth; an aftertaste mixed with a slight acidity without being fruity.

    The Urban Blend beans is a mix of Peruvian and Guatemalan beans prepared as a French roast. A sweet splash of bright raspberry flavor diminishes the dark smoky roast flavor.

    The new cold brew is a mix of the Mexico, Yirgacheffe, Congo and Sumatra beans. Wow. The profile shifts from light bright mouth of blackberry with a full body of pear and spicy peanuts.

    The Kona coffee of the Pau Hana Estate features washed and patio dried processing. A subtle earthy body is the backdrop of a sweet medium mouthed cup, featuring chocolate and mild pineapple tones.

    The Ethiopian (Yirgacheffe) Japanese pour-over: all the flavor and smooth punch of a cold brew in a fraction of the time. Try one. It won't be your last.

    The Cove Blend beans are a smoky tasting Italian roasted coffee. The flavor is course and earthy with a dark, burnt overtone of chocolate from the long roast time.

    The Congo blend is billed as having a strong mouth and this is supported by a medium dark chocolate tone contrasted by a brief bright aftertaste in the back of tongue.

    Try the nitro coffee. Black. And try it without a straw. Creamy like a draft Guiness!

    Try the "Polar Bear". It's essentially a peanut butter mocha and it's the bomb!
