Our signature coffee is dark, smooth and sweet with a beautiful floral|
aroma, exceptionally clean acidity and a heavy, nutty body. Flavor
nuances include fresh citrus fruits and fine chocolate. Caramelly and
spicy, its complexity makes for both a flavorful espresso with rich,
rusty reddish-brown crema as well an excellent drip coffee. This fabled
blend is featured in espresso bars, cafes and restaurants across the
United States that strive to create the “perfect cup”.
The Legend of Dancing Goats
Coffee was first discovered in what is now called Ethiopia. According to legend, the area's remote highlands were home to a goatherd named Kaldi. His quiet, peaceful life was changed forever when one afternoon his goats failed to return home. After hours of searching he spied them off in the distance, frolicking about. As he drew closer, Kaldi could see that his goats' lively behavior came from eating the little red berries off a shiny green-leafed shrub. He tasted some himself and shared the exhilaration of his dancing goats.
