Last weekend Andrew and I traveled to Seattle to attend the annual convention for the Specialty Coffee Association. It’s always an interesting experience. There are people from all over the world and every segment of the industry. We attended lectures about coffee botany, chemistry, processing, and costs of farming. We visited with some of our brokers and equipment suppliers. Bumped into a couple of farm owners whose coffee we’ve roasted. And looked for new, interesting products to test out for our cafe and retail store. At these conferences, you have to wade through a lot of... (read the rest of my latest blog)

No one wants to make decisions before they’ve had their morning coffee. That’s why our baristas are now suggesting a food pairing with our featured coffee of the week. It sounds a little snooty, but don’t worry. We’re talking real food. Our bakery is just crafting a treat each week that is designed to complement the flavor and aromas of our roaster’s choice coffee.

This week, we’re baking caramel-banana donuts. Drizzled in caramel, with an explosively sweet bite of caramelized banana inside, these donuts pair up perfectly with our fresh-roasted Kangunu AA from Kenya. The coffee comes from the slopes of Mount Kenya, the second-highest peak in Africa. It’s grown on the numerous smallholder farms that form the Kagaari South Farmers Cooperative Society and is delivered to the Kangunu Coffee Factory, which has been around since 1966. You’ll get a nice burst of blueberries on your tongue when you drink this coffee, and the heady aroma of coconut lingers on and on.

This is the last week to get a subscription to our School Grounds Coffee. A portion of the proceeds from each pound sold of this superb Colombian micro-lot goes to support our neighborhood school, Lee Elementary, as well as schools in San Isidro, Colombia. Thanks to your support, funds from the project have already enabled a San Isidro school to replace a broken water line so the school can have running water. Lee is using the donation to improve its outdoor classroom.  Just last weekend, the kids added native pollinator plants to the school’s butterfly garden. Order a three-month subscription at DoubleShotCoffee.com and help out both the people who bring us this special coffee and the kids at Lee.
