Jamaican Blue Mountain – Cultivated near Kingston in the renowned Blue Mountains, this world famous coffee is grown as high as seven thousand feet above sea level in prime Arabica coffee growing areas.

Ethiopian Harrar – Enjoy one of the world’s finest premium gourmet coffees from the prime growing regions of Ethiopia. This is a dry-processed coffee and benefits from the the taste of the fruit that imparts to the coffee beans during drying. Typically the Ethiopian Harrar coffees are more wild and gamey than the Yirgacheffe coffees which are more floral due to their wet-processing though truly both are considered among the top when ranking the best coffee in the world. The Harrars have a wonderful complexity with notes of spice including chocolaty flavors along with undertones of cardamom and cinnamon. Depending on the roast you may also notice compote and blueberries.

The body of this premium gourmet coffee can verge on syrupy as it coast the palate with exciting flavors including chocolate and licorice. The acidity tends to be relatively mild.
