A Little Bit Of This, A Little Bit Of That

Containers of specialty green coffee loaded by crane and loading trucks onto a cargo ship at the import-export loading dock in Goroka, Papua New Guinea

As we march forward to summer, the half year of 2015 is coming fast. New crops continue to trickle out of origin as late rains and port delays have slowed new crop arrivals. What’s new for Vournas Coffee this year? Plenty! With Sumatra microlots arriving next week, to Guatemala Dulce Leonarda, and Costa Rica Puma Tarrazu! Oh, what choices you have to beef up your lineup! This will be the best group of coffees that we have had in years.

What We’re Excited About

Mexico Rancho San Francisco SHG is back after two years missing in action. Don’t miss out! Only 275 bags of nutty, orange citrus with well-rounded acidity.

Costa Rica Tarrazu Puma SHB —What can we say besides buy it before it’s gone! 550 bags arriving.

Sumatra Lintong Triple Pick Tiger —Another big cat that won’t disappoint! Creamy body and slight peppery spice will bring plenty of smiles from this special Lake Toba gem!

Guatemala Dulce Leonarda —275 bags of PURE VIDA grown by two brothers who know their stuff!

New at Vournas Coffee this year will be our quest to find the best small lots of coffee. Stay tuned for upcoming Colombia Microlots — TBA

Sumatra Longberry, Sumatra Honey, and Sumatra Natural —all from Wahana Estate.

Finally on a sad note, Joe Verdi who worked for us at Vournas Coffee, passed away in mid-April. This ended a 50 plus year career in coffee as a trader. His humor, passion and kindness will be missed. Rest in peace my friend. I am sure you are having a smoke with your other famous friends from Hoboken – e.g. Frank Sinatra.

 
Happy Roasting,

Andrew
