    re: Favorite coffee beans ??

    I began a Peet's lover... just about anything but French Roast. Favorites are Kenya, Arabian Mocha Sanani and Mocha Java. (www.peets.com)

    I've since fell in love with Intelligentsia - Sumatra, Mocha Java, Yemen - I've yet to find one I didn't like. Their Black Cat espresso blend is incredible - espresso or even brewed. (www.intelligentsiacoffee.com).

    My single favorite is Mary Catherine's Blend from a little roaster in Louisville KY - Heine Brothers. (www.heinebroscoffee.com)

    I'm looking for suggestions, too. Keep them coming!

    Hi All, being a newbie to the business (of sorts....10+ years out of it) and new to this board. I can tell you I have sampled lots of beans in trying to find a house brew for our new shop.

    We have settled on 2, and going to let our customers tell us which one ultimately, or maybe offer two- not 100% sure.

    My Personal favorite(s):

    Coal Creek (Laramie WY) Organic de Coal Creek.

    *** This is some really, really great coffee folks *** I did not know what to expect with an organic....but WOW- I pulled some awesome shots. I tasted every shot, of every coffee sent to us....this one converted me to someone who could drink shots straight from the glass. (my wife also)

    Morning Light- Signature Blend (Great Falls, MT)

    ***Mike has built a really good business, and has produced a very very good coffee, and we wanted a Montana roaster....everyone should give it a try at least once - very stable, and consistent, very good flavor and aroma....awesome Crema from. Imagine Apple Butter creamy without the apple taste.

    Intelligentsia- Black Cat - this was our choice the second we tasted it as the coffee of the Month. Very unique, almost sweet, may cause me to make a tough choice down the road if customer react the way I think they will.


    These 3 represent my Organic, My regular, and my coffee of the Month.

    __________________________________________

    Next 3 for the rotation (organic and coffee of the month)

    Snowy Mountain (MT)
    Doma(ID)
    Coffee Emergency: Code Brown (NE)

    I have tried about 20 different types, and most were very good, a few were, "OK" and only a few what I could call bad (I threw them out)

    I really believe this business is like wine. not always, but most of the time- you get what you pay for.


    Hope that helps, feel free to contact me, I look forward to this thread, and trying some other hidden gems.

    If your java tastes bitter: ASK QUESTIONS.

    Favorite beans

    Hi
    I have a Truly Awesome blend my Mocha Java Blend which is 50% Yemen Mocca Matari and 50% Java Estate. It is my best selling blend. For an extremely smooth blend try my House blend it is 50-50 Brasil Serra Negra and the best Columbian Supremo I can get. Ssssmooth and chocolaty. I don't want to sound like I am pushing my store but I truly LOVE my roasting and I am trying to get into the wholesale market. Anyone want to try some free? Just for businesses.
    Enjoy Your Coffee!
    Pete
