What is Gourmet Coffee?

For some of us, it's an absolutely indispensable part of our morning routine. And afternoon routine. And evening routine...............

In technical terms, coffee is the seed of a cherry from a tree that grows from sea level to approximately 6,000 feet, in a narrow subtropical belt around the world. Because the coffee cherries ripen at different times, they are picked by hand. It takes roughly 2,000 Arabica cherries to produce just one ounce of roasted coffee. That's a lot of cherry picking!

If you're a coffee person, try Brown Bagging it with one of our great selections. We've searched far and wide for the best coffees from the best roasters. Whether you prefer straights, blends, or flavored varieties, don't you deserve it? We grind only upon receipt of orders to preserve freshness. Orders are shipped within 72 hours.

Straights & Blends: What's a straight? You may have also seen it called a varietal. These are 100% pure coffees from a single origin. They are usually identified by the location where it was grown. Since the flavor of a coffee is affected by the growing conditions, such as weather, they can vary widely from region to region. An estate coffee is not only from one particular region, but was grown entirely on one farm or plantation. A blend, then is what you might guess--a combination of coffees from different regions. A talented roaster can blend a masterpiece!
