Cup of Joey: Returning Favorites

Back by popular demand: Ethiopia Negusse Nare Natural & Guatemala Vizcaya You’ll notice that our Ethiopia Natural Dur Feres will be swapped out with a returning classic, the Negusse Nare Natural. Just in time for autumn, this fruity coffee has warm notes of dried apple and fresh peaches.

Happy Birthday, Dapper & Wise!

Happy Birthday, Dapper & Wise!

The year was 2012 - we were at a great season in our business. For several years, we served another roaster’s coffee and had many fans that would come simply for the coffee alone. However, six years in, we were at a critical point in our business. The only thing that we created ourselves were our pastries at our Cannon Beach location with our main product being our preparation and service model. We were also getting a lot of questions from our customer base concerning where the coffee came from - especially in a time where the “farm-to-table” conversation was...
