New Offering: Kenya



Originally posted on bloom:



It’s no secret that coffee is grown all around the world. Look at any specialty roaster’s offerings, and the diversity of origins available should illustrate this fact. Lesser known is the often circuitous journey coffee took in traveling all around the world. While the Arabica species and many of its main varieties are believed to have originated in Ethiopia and grown for thousands of years, commercial coffee production was only introduced to most African countries in the late 19th or early 20th century. Such is the case with Joe Bean’s newest offering from the Chania Estate in the Thika region of Kenya.

In the late 1800s, coffee was being reintroduced to the African mainland by Dutch, French, and English colonists. In Kenya, coffee was introduced by French missionaries who had been cultivating a particularly productive variety on an island known then as Bourbon (now RĂ©union, 1848). This variety became…

1: It’s All About The Coffee

Welcome to our blog, where we hope to take you along on our coffee journey!

The only possible way to open our first blog is to say a huge thank you to everyone who has pitched in over the past few weeks. The quest to get those doors open required the calling in of a few favours, and many more are now owed. To each and everyone of you – a heartfelt thank you.

We finally got to swap our toolboxes for knock boxes around 3pm on Thursday 7th November, the dreariest of November afternoons, and so began our coffee adventure. We’ve been open for two weeks now with a simple ethos – it’s all about the coffee – and we’re delighted to say we’re making great coffee, and having lots of fun.

So how did we get here? It’s quite simple really, no masterful business plan, and certainly not…

Coffee-Bean Prices Have Hit Their Highest Level in More Than Two Years



Originally posted on TIME:



Arabica-coffee prices reached their highest level in 2½ years on Monday, after projections for more dry weather in Brazil sowed worries about lackluster future harvests, the Wall Street Journal reports.


Arabica coffee ordered for delivery in December ended on Monday at $2.2080 a pound on the ICE Futures U.S. exchange — the highest price since February 2012, WSJ says. A commodities strategist betting on the futures market also told WSJ he expects coffee-trading prices to rise from here, to $2 to $3 a pound next year.


For cup-of-joe consumers, though, the effects will not be immediate. WSJ reports that Starbucks has already fixed prices with suppliers to meet its needs in 2015, though prices for 2016 are still in the works.


The recent coffee harvest in Brazil was the smallest in three years and follows Brazil’s worst drought in decades. Brazil is the world’s biggest exporter of coffee beans, though…

The history of coffee bean in Yemen



Originally posted on Best to Buy Coffee Bean | Great Ideas:



One of the earliest written mention of coffee is provided in Arabic manuscript №944, stored at the French National Library. Shehabeddin Ben, Arabic author of the XV century, tells of his contemporary Gemaleddine, muftis Yemeni city of Aden, who traveled to Persia. During his stay there, he drew attention to his tribesmen, brewed and drank coffee, which he had attached no importance.


Vernuvshivs Aden and feeling unwell, Gemaleddin thought of coffee and decided to try this drink, which not only helped him to recover, but also strengthened the forces. The latter quality Gemaleddin appreciated especially as it helped in the night religious vigils. Authority and recommendations muftis helped spread the beverage, which soon began to drink not only dervishes, but also artisans, merchants and other inhabitants of the city.

Craftsmen Specialty Coffee



Originally posted on The Ordinary Patrons:



Craftsmen Specialty Coffee


Craftsmen Specialty Coffee is a cafe in Siglap V that sells coffee and beer as well as ice cream, cakes, waffles and other small bites. They also retail packs of coffee beans, brewing equipment and accessories like syphon and filters.


Craftsmen Specialty Coffee


It is another cafe with the “industrial look” – exposed ceilings, bare concrete floor, “semi-finished” walls and the now ubiquitous “Edison” filament light bulbs. It is getting difficult to tell one trendy cafe from another by the interiors. The distinguishing features in Craftsmen Specialty Coffee are the coffee drip tower prominently placed on the main long table and the display of a variety of craftsbeer and cider.


Craftsmen-2


The menu offers the usual hot and cold coffee plus special brews from the Brew Bar – V-60, Chemex, Siphon, Woodneck and French Press. Prices range from $3.50 (Espresso) to $8 (Siphon). There is a Baby Cino at $2 for kids.

How Do You Describe Coffee Smell In Words – Visiting Shearwater Organic Coffee Roasters



Originally posted on Talk-A-Vino:



DSC_0814 Seriously, I really mean it as a question – how do you describe coffee smell? I’m asking here the people who cherishes or may be even worships the good cup of coffee – how one can describe that “pick-me-up” goodness when you walk into the room and smell freshly brewed, real, delicious coffee made with love? It is hard, right? You can describe the effects of that smell (invigorating, uplifting, awakening…), but not the smell itself. But – if you are into the coffee, it is enough to say “the wonderful smell of fresh coffee”, and we understand each other. And let me throw in a few pictures for the good measure…


When I walked into the shop of Shearwater Organic Coffee Roasters in Trumbull, CT, I felt like a kid in the toy store. It was all about coffee – the smell, the coffee makers, huge bags of coffee…
