May/June Roast Magazine Featuring Giv Coffee K-Cups

Giv Coffee Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga Natural K-Cups with the high score of 90 points

Giv Coffee Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga Natural K-Cups with the high score of 90 points

Our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga Natural K-Cups were reviewed by Coffee Review this past February.  They were given the top score, (of 90 points), out of all the samples they had received and were included in Kenneth Davids’ article in Coffee Review’s online site.  Now Roast Magazine, a nationally renowned magazine for the coffee industry, has decided to run an article on Kenneth Davids’ findings. We are excited to be given some recognition in the industry spotlight…and to be filling orders from all over the country! 

Some good visuals as you enjoy our new Colombia coffee…

The red region on the Colombia map is Cauca.  Inza lies on the Eastern border of the region.

So the new Colombia, Inza de Cauca, Pedregal Lot #7 is already a crowd pleaser!  It sold out at our last market in under an hour!  Check it out for yourself and buy a here at our online store.

Here are the coffee details in the words of “Red Fox Coffee Merchants”:

Pedregal is a vereda and canton both located in the Inza province of Cauca.  The growing area saddles the border with Huila and is at high elevations ranging from 1700 – 2000 masl.  Average farm size in this region is 2.5 hectares and growers have maintain almost entirely Caturra varietals across the area.  Bourbon, Typica and Castillo can also be found. Pedregal lot #7 is a combination lot of 3 producers – Libardo Ossa, Eibar Rojas and Abraham Campo.  Processing is done via manual depulping, fermentation times of 18-24 hours, washing in these fermentation tanks and drying on parabolic beds for 8-15 days depending on the elements.  

Enjoy!

New coffees are in!

newcoffees

We have been looking high and low this winter for delicious new coffees to add to our list. It is the season for South American coffees and no one gets South American coffees like an importing company called Red Fox Coffee Merchants. They are able to get unbelievable Colombian and Peruvian coffees and we have worked hard to secure some of their top lots.

It is also the season for Rwandan coffees and Brazilian coffees. We have secured this year’s crop from Gitesi, which scored extremely high last year on Coffee Review and a Brazilian coffee from a region known as Carmo de Minas, which produces some of the best in the country. The Brazilian coffee definitely gives our Monte Cristo a run for its money!

We will be rolling these out onto the list slowly but surely as we find their sweet spot in the roaster.

So start looking forward to tasting delicious coffees from:

Colombia (3 different lots), Brazil, Rwanda, and Peru

WAHOO!! We knew they were good, but now you can know it too! Our Konga K-Cups were the TOP RATED entry in an international tasting by Coffee Review; The World’s Leading Coffee Guide!

Here’s what leading coffee reviewer Kenneth Davids had to say…”the best we tested was the 90-rated Giv COFFEE Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga Natural, presented in an UpShot capsule holding 11 grams of ground coffee that generated close to a perfect gold-cup-standard extraction at a 6-ounce setting.” Check out the rest of the article here and the review here.
