Wednesdays are for education!

We'll be taking Wednesdays to focus on education in coffee terminology. Accessibility in coffee can be as simple as understanding the jargon of coffee. Hopefully you'll find this useful and find that it helps you expand your understanding of coffee a bit more!

This week: VARIETIES/CULTIVARS

Let's talk about coffee as a plant species and the many varieties and cultivars within the species. First off, for our purposes here, we'll stick to Coffea arabica - or just Arabica. While Coffea canephora (robusta) is still coffee and drinkable as such, it yields low-quality cups and thus is almost never found in the specialty world.

Now, in referring to coffee varieties, we mean naturally occurring subspecies and when referring to coffee cultivars, we mean cultivated subspecies. Many, if not most, of the subspecies found in the specialty world are actually cultivars, bred for performance - yield, cup quality, disease resistance, pest resistance, and so on. These factors are then what farmers use in selecting which subspecies to plant. Much of the coffee breeding in recent decades has centered around resistance to Coffee Leaf Rust (or CLR), which is a devastating leaf fungus that can eliminate entire crops. Worldwide, 15-80% reduction in yields can be attributed to this intense mycelium, so it's no wonder coffee subspecies are bred to be resistant!

The three main varieties of Arabica being planted across the world are Geisha, Typica, and Bourbon. There are also quite a few significant Typica hybrids, crossbred with traits from other main species for one reason or another. Red-ripening and yellow-ripening types exist for many varieties as well. You'll often see farms plant multiple varieties for biodiversity, longer harvest windows, and specific microclimates within a farm favoring certain types of others. This is why many of our bags of coffee have multiple varieties listed.

Occasionaly we like to circle back to our origins to recenter on why we do what we do.

And so today we reflect on why we named ourselves 1000 Faces Coffee. Where we come from and the hardships of our journey shape us into who we are. Nothing worth doing is ever easy. The struggle is part of the path to enlightenment. In coffee, as in life.

This seminal work of mythology is the namesake behind our business. The hero's journey is in all of us; in every cup.

This past weekend we were able to raise $960 collectively, between us and our sister business, @vortexdoughnuts in Asheville, for volcano disaster relief in the Antigua area of Guatemala. While this is only a drop in the pan compared to the massive scope of the disaster, we are honored to be able to support the relief efforts in any way we can. This area brings us so many good coffees and, more importantly, our relationship with the producers gets stronger every year. To be able to support them in their time of crisis is quite simply the very least we can do.

Wednesdays are for education!

We'll be taking Wednesdays to focus on education in coffee terminology. Accessibility in coffee can be as simple as understanding the jargon of coffee. Hopefully you'll find this useful and find that it helps you expand your understanding of coffee a bit more!

This week: MILK TEXTURING

If you go into any number of cafes around the world and order a latte, chances are you’ll find that your barista artfully poured a little love into your cup in the form of latte art. This is possible thanks to hours and hours of practice in the skill of latte art, but equally as important is the milk itself.

First, you’ll want to use high-quality, preferably local and organic, milk. This is both healthier for you and results in better quality steamed milk for you to pour into your drink. But how do you get from fresh, cold milk, to beautifully textured milk that'll allow you to pour a four-layered tulip in your latte?  This is all done through aerating and heating the milk, using high-pressure steam from the steam wand built into the espresso machine.

Texturing milk is broken down into two phases as mentioned above: aeration and heating.

When you aerate milk, you are essentially injecting a steady stream of air into the surface of the milk, giving it texture. During this phase you are creating something called “microfoam” which is a finely textured, thin layer of foam on the surface of the milk. This microfoam is what pours out into your cup and makes latte art possible. The secret to easy aeration is having the tip of the steam wand sitting just below the surface of the milk. During this phase, you should hear an intermittent hissing noise, similar to the sound of tearing a sheet of paper. This phase only lasts a few seconds, but plays a huge role in quality of your finished drink.

Continued in the comments below!

>>NEW COFFEE<<
.
.
>>FAMILIA SANTA CRUZ<<
.
.
Familia Santa Cruz comes to us by way of our friends at @redfoxcoffeemerchants, who have been exploring this region and purchasing coffee here for the past decade.  This is the final offering out of two small Colombian lots we will be featuring this Spring/Summer - farms here are historically quite small, only a few hectares in total.  Red Fox has a deep relationship with a cooperative based in and around La Union, known as the FUDAM producers association. The coffee from Familia Santa Cruz is fully washed and wet fermented (submerged completely under water during fermentation) for 22 - 26 hours before being spread out to dry on raised beds.  From the mouths of the foxes themselves: “These are quite possibly the most complex coffees we’ve sourced from the greater area. There is a purity to these coffees that make them different than the rest.” We couldn’t agree more, and all of our initial roasting and brewing tests have absolutely proved how complex and versatile this coffee is.  Very similar to our first release, Alicia Bursano, we’re finding that the flavors of Familia Santa Cruz are complex and vibrant, yet very balanced. Initial taste notes and thoughts: syrupy mouthfeel, chocolate and brown sugar sweetness, plums, apples, cherries, juicy acidity. This is another perfect example of why we love coffees from Colombia.  Enjoy!
.
Available online, at our roastery, our farmers markets, and through our wholesale program. Enjoy!

1000 Faces Coffee was established in Athens, Georgia in the spring of 2006. A group of ecologists and social entrepreneurs founded the company with transparency in the supply chain as the guiding principle. Ownership and management remains 100% local and is now shared amongst Jay Payne and the Kozak family.

BISCUITS & COFFEE LOVE! Today from 10am to 3pm!

What is B&CL? It's a fundraiser series by 1000 Faces Coffee & @thefarmcart. Just eat a delicious biscuit and drink some tasty coffee to support important work. Held at 1000 Faces once per month on select Sundays from 10am to 3pm.

For this month's event, 20% of sales will go to supporting relief efforts in the Antigua area of Guatemala. The eruption of Volcan de Fuego has been catastrophic. The active volcano erupted violently on Sunday, spewing hot gasses and rock with great force down into the villages and farms occupying the volcano's slopes. The full impact of this remains to be seen, but death tolls are rising and countless more are missing.

This area brings us so many good coffees and, more importantly, our relationship with the producers gets stronger every year. We can't imagine what they're going through at the moment. Our hearts go out to those affected by this natural disaster.

Proceeds will be given to Ahava Ministries, working directly with survivors and officials in the area. The ministry is normally focused on helping impoverished families through education and skills training, however, in the face of this disaster, they have turned their focus towards immediate relief by providing shelters with the supplies needed to sustain thousands of their neighbors who have lost their homes, friends, and families. Ahava is currently collecting funds to buy basic essentials such as food, clothing, bedding, medicine, diapers, and formula. They appreciate all of your help as they work to care for the families who are in such dire need at this time.

Wednesdays are for education!

We'll be taking Wednesdays to focus on education in coffee terminology. Accessibility in coffee can be as simple as understanding the jargon of coffee. Hopefully you'll find this useful and find that it helps you expand your understanding of coffee a bit more!

This week: COLD BREW

Summer is baaaasically here, which means cold brew season is upon us! Have you ever wondered what makes cold brew so delicious and smooth? Well, you are not alone! In honor of our favorite iced drink, we have decided to focus this weeks educational post on the art of cold brew.

Iced coffee comes in many forms! You could head to your favorite cafe and order a cold brew. Or you could brew a pour over at home and ice it down. Both can be delicious on a summer day, but there is no denying that the hot brewed coffee that you added ice to will taste quite different than the cold brew you got at the cafe. So what exactly makes cold brewed coffee different?

In one word, solubles.

There are a ton of solubles in coffee beans that contribute to the final taste of your cup of coffee. These solubles help give your coffee its flavor, aroma, and could even contribute to your coffees perceived acidity. The main factors in dissolving these solids are sometimes referred to as “The Three T’s” - time, temperature, and turbulence. A change in either one of these variables can drastically alter the end result of your brew. When you are brewing using hot water, you are more effectively dissolving solids than you would be able to do using cooler water. The introduction of hot water to coffee grounds causes the chemical compounds found inside the coffee (thanks to the roasting process) to both oxidize and degrade - which will result in a move flavorfully “complex” cup, raising the coffees perceived acidity. But if you were to cold brew those same beans by grinding them up coarse and soaking them in cold water for 24 hours, your end result would be drastically different, and your coffee would have almost no perceived acidity. This is due to the fact that cold water will oxidize and degrade the coffee at a much slower rate.

Our good friends in the Antigua Valley of Guatemala are hurting. Volcan de Fuego (shown here dormant, in March of 2017) erupted violently on Sunday, spewing hot gasses and rock with great force down into the villages and farms occupying the volcano's slopes. The full impact of this remains to be seen, but death tolls are rising and countless more are missing.

This area brings us so many good coffees and, more importantly, our relationship with the producers gets stronger every year. We can't imagine what they're going through at the moment. Our hearts go out to those affected by this natural disaster.

Stay tuned for more info on how we intend to raise some funds to support relief efforts!

Historically, farmers and consumers have been kept distant by geography, the barrage of details associated with each country’s rules and rituals surrounding international trade and, in too many cases, mid-level buyers who have based business models on securing profit margins from misinformation about the market. Traditionally, coffee has come from poor countries and been consumed by people in wealthy countries; If anything, we want to do our part to balance the business so that we can focus on creating great coffees with a sense of trust and mutual understanding.

Milk made from oats? Better taste and better for the environment than almond milk?

Yes, it's all true. @oatly is pretty rad. Traceable down to each individual ingredient. Luscious taste.

Have you tried it? If so, what did you think? If not, ask our baristas for a sample!

And don't worry, we're still carrying almond milk. Transitions take time!

Wednesdays are for education!

We'll be taking Wednesdays to focus on education in coffee terminology. Accessibility in coffee can be as simple as understanding the jargon of coffee. Hopefully you'll find this useful and find that it helps you expand your understanding of coffee a bit more!

This week: WAVES OF COFFEE

There is a good chance that the way you enjoy your morning cup of coffee is different than how your parents did at your age, both in terms of setting and quality. This is because over the years, coffee culture in America has evolved and grown. Generally, it is common to see coffee classified into three distinct “waves” which describe methodologies, eras, and to some extent, quality.

The First Wave began in the early 20th century (est. 1920’s) and still remains today. In The First Wave, coffee is treated as a commodity with no connection to the producer, and rarely even, to the country of origin. Commonly associated with canned grocery coffee and gas station styrofoam cups served from glass carafes on hot plates. The First Wave introduced vacuum packaging and instant coffee. Folgers, Maxwell House, and Mr. Coffee are common First Wave brands.

The Second Wave began in the 1960’s (est. 1966) with the increase in presence of the espresso machine in US cafes, predominantly on the West and East coast. Italian espresso machine makers such as Pavoni, Gaggia, and La Marzocco were pioneers in the US adaptation of espresso and espresso based drinks, and it is in fact the espresso café culture of Italy that spurred the massive retail expansion of chains like Starbucks. The Second Wave is the precursor to today’s “specialty coffee”. This is when we begin to see the introduction to lattes, cappuccinos, and even the now common french press. We also begin to see more focus on country of origin and even region within the country of origin. Starbucks, Peet’s, Seattle’s Best, and Caribou Coffee are common second wave brands, still alive and well in today’s coffee marketplace.

Our gents @bigwetbrainz and @killaspro just returned from an exploratory visit to Colombia. This trip was all about laying the groundwork. This is the kind of trip that will yield long term dividends. Big thanks to @cafeologo for leading the way into the unknown.

"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself." - Joseph Campbell

Today we honor the heroes with a thousand faces. The women and men in uniform who sacrificed and sacrifice still. And especially so, today we honor those who gave until they had nothing left to give.

We are open today from 10am to 3pm! We hope you take some time today to be mindful of what Memorial Day is all about. Spent some QT with friends, family, and neighbors, remembering why we celebrate this holiday. Maybe over some nice coffee, or some delicious BBQ.

Wednesdays are for education!

We'll be taking Wednesdays to focus on education in coffee terminology. Accessibility in coffee can be as simple as understanding the jargon of coffee. Hopefully you'll find this useful and find that it helps you expand your understanding of coffee a bit more!

This week: CUPPING

Cupping is a highly structured and repeatable method that coffee professionals (roasters, farmers, importers, baristas, etc) and enthusiasts use to analyze coffee. Cupping is scientific in the sense that it is meant to be done in the same way each time so as to eliminate any variance in preparation when comparing coffees. Coffee professionals are trained in the cupping process and even go so far as to 'score' coffees - assigning them numerical scores out of 100 points maximum. Generally speaking, coffees scoring 80pts or higher are considered specialty grade. Coffees scoring 80-84.99pts are considered Very Good, 85-89.99 are considered Excellent, and 90-100 are considered Outstanding. For reference, coffees on our menu are currently scoring between 84 and 88 points. 90+ coffees are a true rarity!

That said, cupping can be way more fun and approachable if you simply take notes on what you're smelling and tasting. Use words that makes sense to you and allow you to express what you're experiencing.

This beautiful Ethiopian offering comes to us via a connection made with Yisehak Awel of @leancoffeeimport. Working with his brother’s exporting company, Adulina, he has started bringing a handful of exciting lots into the United States. This will be our final offering from the 2017 harvest before we transition into newly arriving crop from this year. Gelena Abaya represents a very small subregion with Ethiopia, nestled between Lake Abaya on the West and the town of Yirgacheffe on the East.  Hundreds of families deliver their cherries here to one of five different wet mills for processing.  The coffee is dried on raised beds which are covered during the hottest part of the day to control drying speed. Lots of compost is used in this area to build soil quality for the coffee trees, which we love to see. Good soil equals good coffee. Speaking of good coffee, Gelena Abaya is tasting as juicy and elegant as ever.  The mouthfeel is distinctly silky, like honey, and the acidity is bright and fruity. We’re loving the complexity (read: there are a lot of different really enjoyable flavors going on here) of this coffee as well, so have fun with it! We taste: rose, rosé wine, honey, hibiscus, apricot, cinnamon, and black tea. Woop!
.
Available online, at our roastery, our 3 farmers markets, and through our wholesale program. Enjoy!

We believe that small is beautiful.

When it comes to things related to the kitchen, we have found great joy in small artisan production, and much despair in the large-scale industrialized approach. From the beginning, we have made an unwavering commitment to micro or small batch roasting. To put it more clearly, we never roast more than 40lbs. at a time. With each coffee, we do something called profile roasting. Profile roasting is based on the understanding that each coffee has a sweet spot.  Once we find this sweet spot, we develop a special profile of time and temperature variables that offer our interpretation of perfection. This means that we don’t use traditional terms like light, medium, and dark roasts. We feel these terms are a part of a rather complex problem. As ecologists at heart, we believe that the reductionist approach to complexity is one of the primary causes of our environmental crisis. Thus all of our coffees are presented in the pastoral of place, varietals, and our own artisanal interpretation and are roasted by hand on a Proaster THCR-25 roaster.

BISCUITS & COFFEE LOVE is today from 10am to 3pm! Rain or shine!

What is B&CL? It's a fundraiser series by 1000 Faces Coffee & @thefarmcart. Just eat a delicious biscuit and drink some tasty coffee to support important work in our community. Held at 1000 Faces once per month on select Sundays from 10am to 3pm.

In 2018, 10% of proceeds go to the Get Comfortable campaign created by @creaturecomfortsbeer.

The mission of the Get Comfortable campaign is to become a unifying anchor in the business community to drive awareness, increase engagement, and provide support for nonprofits combating the Athens community’s greatest needs as it relates to living comfortably. In Athens-Clarke County where one in five people are food-insecure and the poverty rate is 36.6% – nearly twice the state poverty rate of 18.4% – the campaign has traditionally focused on hunger, homelessness, and poverty. Through a rigorous vetting process as well as the direction of an advisory committee of community stakeholders, the campaign selected 6 organizations to highlight throughout the season & receive funding when the program wraps in November 2018.

The following nonprofits were chosen as the 2018 Get Comfortable partners: Advantage Behavioral Health, Athens Area Homeless Shelter, Athens Community Council on Aging, The Ark, Chosen For Life, & Mercy Health Center.

This week: BODY

The word body is often interchangeable with the word mouthfeel in specialty coffee. The words that describe body are used to convey how the coffee feels in the mouth. For example - Is it thick and syrupy or light and more tea-like? Chewy and heavy or delicate and airy? One easy way to connect to this concept is to consider the differences in body of whole milk, 2% milk, and skim milk. If you were to taste all three of those side by side, you'd have a good grasp of the big differences in body or mouthfeel.

Additionally, and maybe most importantly to many consumers, these descriptors also serve as an easy way to decide whether the coffee will hold up well, or not well, to the addition of milk. As far as we are concerned, to keep things simple, coffees will either be described as delicate or rich. Delicate coffees will have a lighter mouthfeel. Because we usually try to roast these lighter bodied coffees to exhibit more vibrant, fruit-forward, floral characteristics, our delicate coffees generally will not pair the best with milk. This isn't to say we think adding milk would be wrong! They can definitely still taste great; however, because of the lighter body, these coffees are easily overpowered by any additions. On the other hand! rich coffees will have a noticeable heft in the mouthfeel. Generally speaking, these coffees will have a more sticky sweetness that we think would easily be able to stand up to a few splashes of cream.

Say farewell to this year's Suke Quto! Sad indeed, but many good sips were had. We'll be selling the last few bags at our on-site café.

Nothing to worry about, though. The washed Ethiopian slot on our menu is verrrrry important to us and so next week we'll be launching a new one! It's called Galena and it'll be your new fave.

Since we opened our doors on day one, we have been working in partnership with the two most important ends of the 1000 Faces spectrum: the grower and the customer. It is this partnership that is at the foundation for real economic sustainability for not just us, but all parties involved. We believe that respect for geographic origin, direct relationships, and ecological awareness is the basis for creating a more sustainable coffee culture.

Instant specialty coffee. Enough said, right?

Well, if that doesn't do it for you - just know that this stuff wows us each time we pour a packet in cup and add hot water. And we taste A LOT of coffee.

@voila.coffee means good coffee doesn't have to be a treasure hunt. Campsites, airports, road trips, your auntie's house, and any other wasteland of good coffee is no longer to be feared.

Get some at our on-site café or buy online straight from Voila!

Los chicos del taller mecánico lo esperan ansiosos para desayunar, lleva cafecito caliente y facturas para acompañar este otoño que arrastra sus hojas.
Me dijo: esto no es para ningun diario, no?
. -No, señor no, es porque amo las bicis y me encantó la suya.
.Y entonces posó con una sonrisa y orgullo.
Los chicos le decian entre risas: ya sos famoso!
Qué mas le puedes pedir a la vida, Richard lo tiene todo: café y bici, el mejor del barrio.

Wednesdays are for education!

We'll be taking Wednesdays to focus on education in coffee terminology. Accessibility in coffee can be as simple as understanding the jargon of coffee. Hopefully you'll find this useful and find that it helps you expand your understanding of coffee a bit more!

This week: GRINDING

Have you ever wondered why we need to grind coffee before we can brew it? How important is it really? Well, the truth is, if you truly want to make a tasty cup of coffee, your answer lies in the grind.

One of the most important (and overlooked) aspects of grinding coffee is the consistency of the grind. When hot water interacts with coffee, it begins to dissolve solids and extract the flavor and aroma of the coffee. Different sized coffee particles extract at different rates, so the key to even extractions is a nice, consistent particle size.

The most common home grinder is the classic blade grinder. Blade grinders are both inexpensive and widely available, but fall short in terms of consistency due to their simplicity. Whereas both coffee enthusiasts and your favorite coffee shop take it to the next level by using a burr grinder to grind their beans. Where a blade grinder whirls a few blades around at high speed, essentially slicing the beans at different rates (and creating unwanted heat), a burr grinder has two sets of burrs that spin at a set distance which crush coffee, delivering a consistent particle size and promoting even extraction. Burr grinders are an excellent long term investment for you, the coffee consumer, if you're brewing a good bit at home. Look to reputable brands like Baratza and Hario for solid, well-priced burr grinders.

>>ALICIA BURSANO<<

Alicia Bursano’s coffee comes to us by way of our friends at @redfoxcoffeemerchants, who have been exploring this region and purchasing coffee here for the past decade.  This is the first of two small Colombian offerings we will be featuring this Spring - farms here are historically quite small, only a few hectares in total. Red Fox has a deep relationship with a cooperative based in and around La Union, known as the FUDAM producers association.  Alicia Bursano’s coffee is fully washed and wet fermented (submerged completely under water during fermentation) for a full 24 hours before being spread out to dry on raised beds. From the mouths of the foxes themselves: “These are quite possibly the most complex coffees we’ve sourced from the greater area.  There is a purity to these coffees that make them different than the rest.” We couldn’t agree more, and all of our initial roasting and brewing tests have absolutely proved how complex and versatile this coffee is. At higher extractions, we’re finding Alicia Bursano’s coffee will exhibit a slighter thicker body, richer sweetness, and flavors similar to marzipan, chocolate, red grapes, red apple, and cola.  Grinding a bit coarser reveals a brighter acidity and more delicate flavors - think pomegranate, cherry, orange blossom, white peach, sugary. The flavors are complex and vibrant, yet very balanced. This is a perfect example of why we love coffees from Colombia. Enjoy!
.
Available online, at our roastery, our 3 farmers markets, and through our wholesale program. Enjoy!

@bigcitybreadcafe is an Athens staple. Known for breakfast, brunch, and lunch, and some of the finest outdoor seating in town, it's no wonder this place is so beloved. And don't sleep on their baked goods and very underrated dinner program! Their coffee ain't bad either. 😉

Wednesdays are for education!

We'll be taking Wednesdays to focus on education in coffee terminology. Accessibility in coffee can be as simple as understanding the jargon of coffee. Hopefully you'll find this useful and find that it helps you expand your understanding of coffee a bit more!

This week: FILTERS

No one wants ground coffee in their coffee drink. In the simplest of senses, this is why we filter coffee through some sort of medium - cloth, paper (bleached/unbleached), laser cut metal, metal mesh, etc. Your selection of filter will depend largely on what you want from your coffee. But whatever you do choose, make sure you're choosing a quality filter. Materials used, consistency, and leaching can all make a difference in the cup, so choose a proven, high-quality filter!

First of all, we're covering drip coffee here. Espresso is a uniquely separate conversation full of rabbit holes and tangents.

So! Cloth filters are not commonly used in specialty coffee. While they can do a good job of filtering coffee to a nice clarity, their maintenance is not desirable or functional for most. Most consumers will be making decisions about paper filters vs metal filters.

The biggest benefit of a paper filter is in the flavor definition, brightness, sweetness, and nuance in the cup. We think coffee brewed with a paper filter tastes superior to other filter types due to how well they filter sediment and oils from the cup. They also make cleaning a breeze, and most paper filters are compostable, so you can toss the filter + spent grounds right into your compost bucket. Drawbacks include waste (esp if you aren't able to compost), lack of reusability, forests are cool, and cost since you have to replace those you use.

Benefits of a metal filter include fuller-bodied cups, less waste, no deforestation, and cost-savings over time. Drawbacks with metal filters include muddy/murky/sludgy cups of coffee, cleaning can be a hassle, and upfront cost.

The good news here is that as a consumer, you have a ton of options at your disposal. There are metal and paper filter options for many brewers out there - so have some fun, run some experiments, and decide what you like best!

When talking about sourcing coffee, the not-so-sexy logistics (i.e. transport/storage/documents) rarely gets the attention nor the kind of transparency deserved by this critical component of the supply chain.

It's fortuitous, then, that our friends at @cafeauchain are working on solutions to help shine light across the entire supply chain. It's time to bring this aspect of green coffee sourcing into the modern age! Give them a follow to see what they're up to!

Wednesdays are for education!

We'll be taking Wednesdays to focus on education in coffee terminology. Accessibility in coffee can be as simple as understanding the jargon of coffee. Hopefully you'll find this useful and find that it helps you expand your understanding of coffee a bit more!

This week: ROAST DATE

Practically speaking, the roast date of a coffee is the day on which it was roasted. We have a calendar on the bottom of our bags that we mark off to show the roast date. The roast date allows you, the consumer, to determine when a coffee is at its peak flavor. But here's the catch. Coffee is a little bit different. It's not like produce where consuming it minutes/hours from its original state (in the case of coffee, just out of the roasting drum) makes a big positive impact on flavor. In specialty coffee, we've become obsessed with the myth of freshness. This may stem from the aroma - coffee just off roast is degassing lots of CO2 and emitting aromatics and smells amazing. But when it comes to flavor in the cup, coffee just needs a bit more time to be ready to brew. In order for water to penetrate the coffee particles during brewing, and thus extract that delicious yumminess, there cannot be outgoing gasses present because they impede water flow into the particles. This means that we often must wait 4 to 12 days off roast before a coffee is ready to brew, allowing the coffee to degas fully.

Wednesdays are for education! We'll be taking Wednesdays to focus on education in coffee terminology. Accessibility in coffee can be as simple as understanding the jargon of coffee. Hopefully you'll find this useful and find that it helps you expand your understanding of coffee a bit more! This week: ROAST DATE Practically speaking, the roast date of a coffee is the day on which it was roasted. We have a calendar on the bottom of our bags that we mark off to show the roast date.

Our sourcing team @bigwetbrainz and @killaspro just returned from the annual #sca2018 conference and are loaded with new contacts, coffees, and inspiration.

But in the meantime, final harvest samples from @cafeologo down in San Cristóbal de Las Casas arrived yesterday. We'll get them sample roasted and cupped and from there will make final selections for this season's Mexico offerings. Exciting times!
