The Tripel Seasonal – Finca Elida, Panama

As some of you may remember we introduced a seasonal coffee in the fall of last year called The Tripel.  Last year it was three coffees from different regions in Ethiopia – Sidamo, Yirgacheffe, and Harar.

This year The Tripel is back and if I dare say, even better.  This Autumn the blend is 100% Direct Trade!  All three of the coffees come from one farm, the award-winning Finca Elida Estate in Panama.  The farm has been in the Lamastus family since 1918.

The blend consists of Finca Elida coffees processed three different ways.  This makes for a unique and delicious cup.  The processes are washed, natural, and honey.  This creates a cup with blackberry, mango notes and all around honey sweetness.

This coffee will be availalble starting next week at your favorite places that carry OCCR; the first roast day will be Wednesday, August 31.  Individual orders being placed on-line will be available soon.   If you are subscriber look for this coffee haning on your door the morning of Tuesday, September 6th!

Limited Special Offering – Kenya Kangocho

We have a limited Special Offering Kenya Kangocho and we
know that you will love it.

Just south of the country from which all coffee originated, Kenya
has proved itself to be a land of delicious coffees. In view of this, we have
had the opportunity to acquire a small stock of some truly fantastic Kenyan
beans. The coffee comes from the Kangocho Mill in the Nyeri district of central
Kenya.

The mill is a part of the Gikanda Cooperative Society whose strict
processing standards ensure quality coffee. In the Coop, pickers are divided
into two levels – the pickers that consistently bring in better quality crops
are given a higher price, and the others are given a lower price because of
their inconsistencies. Upon reading this, many of us will scoff and think
disapprovingly of such a system, however, it is a system that rewards farmers
and pickers for a meticulously and excellently produced coffee. So as the
farmer and picker consistently provide a superior product, they are rewarded
for their hard-earned reputation.

At the outset, the  cup starts with vibrant notes of cherry, followed by a subtle tart cranberry and the creamy sweetness of raspberry. The cup finishes out with heavier tones of honey, apricot, and caramel – with its sweetness lingering after the rest has cleared. The body is lively and syrupy throughout, making it a really,
really, delicious cup.

So, from the farming, to the picking, the processing, to the cupping, to the roasting, and finally to your brewed cup – this coffee exudes excellence! And we want you to enjoy it as much as we do, so you can either order a half-pound for $16.00 or one pound for $30.00. So order as soon as possible as our inventory of this coffee will run out quick  The last day to place an order is midnight on August 28 or until it is sold out! Look out for the coffee hanging on your door on Wednesday morning, the 31st of August!

you live outside of Oak Cliff there is a $5 shipping fee, please follow the
