Ending 2016 with New Single-origins
We are thrilled to announce three delicious new single origin coffees, arriving at your local Gregorys in the next few days. Changing up our single origin board is always exciting, but this go-round is especially special, as we introduce the first single origin coffees roasted at our very own roastery in Long Island City, Queens by our head roaster Gregg Roberson and our assistant roaster Justin Brooks.
The single origin program was the final step in the move away from our friends at Irving Farm Coffee Roasters to full roasting independence. So for the first time in our history, starting this week, we are now roasting 100% of our coffee. We’ve spent a pretty intense few weeks at the roastery getting these Single Origins ready for consumption, and we can’t wait for you to taste them.
Luzmilda comes from one of the farms owned by the Camacho Arrieta family in Naranjo de Alajuela on the slopes of the Poas Volcano in the West Valley of Costa Rica. It has a clear tropical acidity that comes through immediately, but it settles nicely into walnut, vanilla, and chocolate sweetness.
La Muralla is a super dynamic coffee: it changes and changes as it cools. The taste of a tart, perfectly-picked green apple is there and complex vanilla aromatics complement it beautifully.
Celinga Foge comes from the Celinga mill in the Foge village of Ethiopia. There’s a reason so many coffee professionals cite Natural Ethiopians as the first big “wow!” moment they had with coffee, and you can taste that in this coffee for sure. It has loud berry flavors, a big body, and even some chocolate sweetness to round things out.
