2021 Spring Update
We received word that King County will not allow vendors at the Market to sample again this year and have made the painful decision not to attend. We will be roasting from our home roastery for the time being and have added a couple of features to our website based on customer feedback:
New Arrivals: Want to try the latest beans? We have an entire category dedicated to new beans in our inventory in one, easy to find place. Check our our New Arrivals!
Also added, you can now specify the roast level on each bean in your order. You will find a pull-down for Light/Medium/Dark or Roaster's Choice (the default).

Featured - Mokha Haraazi Peaberry Special Reserve
We have partnered with a local company whose family runs a coffee co-op in Yemen. 80% of the sale of green coffee goes directly to the farmers. We love this! This delicious peaberry is from the Haraaz region of Yemen, is hand-picked, and dry-processed on raised beds. The result is a small, intensely flavored bean that embodies all we love about coffee from Yemen.
While this coffee is not for the faint of heart, it makes one of the most amazing cups I've ever tasted.
Tasting Notes: This works well for both brewed and espresso. Thick body, rich bittersweet chocolate, dark grape, leather, and sweet tobacco. This needs to sit at least 72 hours from the date it was roasted in order for the flavor to develop.
