The Downtown Issaquah Association has asked Valente Family Coffee to participate with some other amazing local vendors in their annual Issaquah Goes Apples event. This is a community event
combining activities in the downtown area including a farm fresh produce pop-up market (we are excited to see our friends from Steel Wheel Farms!), walking tours, art experiences, seasonal photo
opportunities and more.
We will be roasting 2 Blends: Our best-selling Cougar Mountain Blend and a special limited edition Hailstone Organic Espresso Blend.
We will also be roasting one (yes, only 1) single-origin bean (want something special? Drop us an an email and we will have your order ready for pickup on Saturday).

Featured Bean - Haiti Blue Mountain
Get it before it's gone!!!
This exceptional Direct-Trade Haitian Blue coffee comes from Coopacvod, one of the oldest known cooperatives in Haiti. Grown in the wet mountain area of Dondon at an altitude of over 1200 meters above sea level, this is the only Arabica Blue Mountain being exported from Haiti at this time as well as the only Organic Coffee.
Tasting Notes: Mellow, smooth and creamy body. Roasted almonds and buttery mouth-feel. Acidity is low, with nice medium body. Sweet, smooth finish. Complex with astonishing balance.
