Descriptions by Sterling Coffee of current offerings:
Gedeb Kochere Ethiopia
This Kochere has so much going on it bewilders the palate. It's like falling face first into a basket of mesquite smoked tropical fruits, getting up, only to slip on some cherry blossoms and crash into Grandma's pecan pie cooling on the kitchen windowsill.
La Lima Peru
There are several lime trees on this farm, hence the name and, wouldn't you know it, the coffee has pervasive notes of Key Lime Pie! Although called the singular "Finca", 10 small farms are working together with a hive mind to improve methods at every stage of the process and dramatically improve cup quality. They've been installing large solar tents (carpa solares) that house raised drying beds to combat unpredictable weather and closely monitor for ideal moisture content in the beans. The result is a super sweet, nuanced cup that we just can't stop drinking!
Guatemala in the house! Here in Portland peach season is in full swing and we've got peach hand pies from Bakeshop in the cafe right now. This coffee is the liquid version of those pies. Super sweet and silky, we could wake up happy drinking this coffee every day. More importantly, this coffee comes to us from a women's cooperative
Santo Domingo Guatemala
The George Washington of coffee. Composed of top quality Central and South American beans, the Stupendo is sourced and roasted to taste like the coffee our country grew up drinking. With classic flavors like rich chocolate, caramel, and a hint of toasted nuts, Stupendo will get you across the Delaware (or at least it’ll get you to work). Medium roasted for every preparation.
