JBC Coffee Roasters - Banco Gotete Ethiopia

This is a fun left quote. Welcome, Banco Gotete Ethiopia! We love you Michael Johnson of JBC Roasters! Another great coffee! Michael has sourced a fantastic cup that hails from the ever popular Yirgacheffee region. Banco Gotete is super bright and fruity and has a definite pop that I find rather exciting. With each sip, it transforms from yummy nice peach and floral to bright tropical fruit notes. It is very versatile. This is a coffee that could be loved hot and will be equally outstanding served frosty and cold for hot days. Add a splash of milk, if you like. Don’t drown out all those lovely flavors! You will love it. Try this lovely lightly roasted African today. This is a fun right quote.

Dallis Bros. Coffee - 1913 Blend

This is a fun left quote. Last month, I left my hot air balloon at home and jumped in my Gulfstream and flew to New York City. I headed straight for the Dallis cupping lab in Long Island City to try their latest- greatest coffees. I am thrilled to report I left mesmerized by a new blend called 1913 Blend! Cup after cup, I could not stop drinking it. I started drinking it in the morning and kept at it until lunchtime. It is truly the perfect breakfast and an all-day classic coffee. South American and Central American beans roasted beautifully, produce a bright chocolate cup of yum. It has a wonderful honey-like sweetness with a bit of fruit. Just enough to make it interesting. I loved this coffee so much that they surprised me yesterday with a 5- pound bag in the mail. Joy to the world! This is truly one of the best holiday gifts of all this Christmas. After you try it, you will make this one a Christmas morning and every morning classic. This is a fun right quote.

Smokin' Aces Coffee Co. - Ethiopia Idido

This is a fun left quote. Fall is here! The warm October sun is shining bright with a little breeze from the bay here in San Francisco. It is especially now, before things get cold and the fog rolls in over the hills that I love a sexy and juicy African coffee. Smokin Aces Ethiopia Idido hits the mark. Bullseye! This coffee is from the Idido Mill and grown on a single farm in the famed Gedeo Zone. This beautiful natural processed coffee was grown with love and sundried on raised beds. The intense fruit forward flavor of Blackberry Jam, Blueberry and Citrus will make you smile. It is a grade 1 coffee, which is the highest grade of Ethiopian in the Yirgacheffe category. I just love it as a pour- over coffee in our Hario V60 or via Clever. I also tried it as a cold brew and was simply delighted! Try this coffee from our new roaster and let this coffee and its magic shine brightly in your cup. This is a fun right quote.

Tony's Coffee - Ganesha Espresso

This is a fun left quote. Each morning, as many of you do, I start my day with a double shot of espresso, often in a cappuccino. A great espresso is really important to me, as well as our customer base. I often tell prospective roasters that if they can not nail their espresso, then they have no shot of ever getting on GoCoffeeGo. It is just a total requirement to get on this coveted site. I must confess that Tony’s coffee blew my socks off with their award-winning Ganesha Espresso. It was the Winner of the 2013 America’s Best Espresso Competition in Seattle! Bag after bag, I fell more deeply in love. It is just a great heavy bodied delicious, crema-filled shot of deliciousness. Always consistent and something I know you will fall in love with and will make a mainstay on your espresso list. It is floral, sweet and syrupy with complex chocolate and fruit notes. This will be a real favorite for everyone. I encourage you to try this wonderful espresso. I know you will fall in love. This is a fun right quote.

Barefoot Coffee - Adventurous Drip Sampler - 4 bags

This is a fun left quote. Morissa, Morrissa, Morrisa…What can I say? Every call I make to the Barefoot roastery is answered by you. Last week. I called inquiring about Barefoot's latest espresso from Papua New Guinea and you whispered in my ear…Fig, Sweet Jam, Cola berry and leather. Leather?! I gasped and my heart raced. I pleaded for her to stop end my agony. She told me to check the mailbox. I paced in front of the office. At 2 pm the mail came. In it was a bag of Barefoot's Arokara Espresso. I ran to my La Marzocco, opened the bag. The smell was heavenly. With a pull of a shot I was launched to the moon. I want you to all know this this is one amazing expresso. I wished for the larger size bag. That 2.5 pounder. Perhaps I will ask Santa for that. Oh dear. Must I sit on his lap?... The espresso was sweet and complex, like Morissa and had that chocolatey earthy body that warms and comforts so nicely in these colder winter months. It punches through the milk well and the fruit makes it a bright and jammy cup. The leather snaps it into shape. Try this espresso. This could be your new favorite. This is a fun right quote.

Doma Coffee - Carmela's

This is a fun left quote. Ah yes, not too long ago, I was back on my private jet heading to South America in my never-ending search for the holy grail of coffees. On a secret tip from my faithful valet Baldrick, somewhere in the northern region of South America, Doma Coffee was rumored to have a special secret blend of immense chocolate and tobacco notes befitting royalty. Upon touching down in Bogota, I was greeted at the runway by a mysterious woman with skin as dark and lovely as the roasted beans I was searching for. It was immediately obvious she knew why I had come and had expected me. Once off the plane, I waved farewell to my loyal companion and Go-Go dancer entourage, loading my luggage and favorite French press into her jeep. After an hour of enduring rough terrain plus a rather sore bottom, we arrived at her secluded field. Once parked, we proceeded to hike to the top of the hill where her colleagues were busy sorting, blending and roasting the day’s harvest. We sat down together at a small bistro table beside the roasting shed and locking her eyes to mine, she finally spoke. She said her name is Carmela and she had a coffee that would ensnare my senses. Her hands clapped twice and a young boy of 14 appeared with a wooden tray and two cups of this magical liquid. Scrutinizing the contents I could immediately smell the essence of dark chocolate and tobacco lingering in the air like a siren to a lonely sailor. I lifted the cup to my lips and upon my first sip I felt overtaken by the chocolatey passion, knocking me out of my chair. It was as if my clothes were flying everywhere, like Charlie Brown on the receiving end of a speeding fastball. I quickly regained my senses, however, like a Kennedy, I was bewildered to find my pants missing. Seeing me in a rather vulnerable state, Carmela grinned with cheeky approval. Come hither, Carmela! Having satisfied my scrutiny and recovering my favorite bespoke Kent & Haste trousers, I provided Carmela her payment. Now Doma is sharing Carmela’s blend with true coffee aficionados back home. Suffice to say this decadent roast is, to say the least, Peaberry Approved. This is a fun right quote.

Kuma Coffee - Fresh Crop Bright - (Red Bear Espresso)

This is a fun left quote. Fresh Crop Bright, formerly known as Red Bear Espresso, is a decadent offering from Mark Barany from Seattle. The flavor notes of Berries, Florals, Citrus and Tropical are sensational! Mark is a true artisan roaster. After meticulously cupping, sampling and choosing only the best beans from all over the world. Originally from New York, Mark moved and lived in Kenya for years. He learned how to speak Swahili and fell in love with African Coffees which set a new course for his life. Moving to Seattle in 1998, he became a barista, then a roaster in 2007 -- just roasting for a few friends. He fine-tuned, tinkered with roasting profiles, then in 2009 purchased his dream roasting equipment and Kuma Coffee was born. From the first sip of his coffee, I knew Mark was a coffee rock star in the making. Through the years, each and every cup of his offerings have blown us away and that is why Mark and Kuma are on GoCoffeeGo. A must brew! This is a fun right quote.

Dallis Bros. Coffee - Unisphere Blend

This is a fun left quote. I am not quite sure why my choices in coffees seem to shift with the change of the seasons. Every year around this time, when the holidays start rolling in and the sky changes colors and darkens, I crave warmth. I am drawn to naughty, sweet childlike flavors in my coffee. I think we all find rich and heavy bodied coffees comforting. I can have a few luscious cups and feel happy but often, as the day goes on, I tend to switch it up. Dallis Bros Unisphere Blend has always been a yummy cup that is light enough to drink all day and still give you the happy sweet cup that you crave. While listed as a light roast, I find it more of a medium-light. The milk chocolate, caramel, plum, nougat and malt flavors could make this one of your year round favorites. It certainly is one of mine! This is a fun right quote.

PT's Coffee - Southpaw Espresso

This is a fun left quote. This is an outstanding Espresso from PT's. Its syrupy lush chocolate body with notes of juicy cherry sweetness hits with all the right milk chocolate notes. Round after round, shot after shot, its tangerine like acidity provides a tang-like jab to finish you off. Truly a knock-out and World Heavyweight Champion Espresso of the World! Great for iced coffee and Toddy too! This is a fun right quote.

Klatch Coffee - Klatch House Espresso

This is a fun left quote. Attention Chocoholics: looking for an espresso that is super duper chocolatey? Then Klatch House Espresso is for you! I have been pulling shots all morning on my new La Marzocco GS3 and am loving it! Not to be confused with their FTO House Espresso…This espresso is ultra rich and has a heavy, creamy body. Add steamed milk to the Klatch House Espresso and it tastes like a Mocha without adding any chocolate and all those calories. It is really quite amazing. On my 3rd cappuccino this morning I decided to experiment. While I never add sugar to my coffee, because of the over the top chocolate body of the espresso, I wanted to see what would happen if I added a touch of sugar and a spray of whipped cream on top. Well, as suspected, I felt like I was drinking a real hot cocoa! I swear I was in back Paris having an Angelina Hot Chocolate on Rue de Rivoli. Well, not exactly. It isn't as thick, but almost. Because of its richness in milk drinks, it may be a bit heavy for those of you that slam 6 double Cappuccinos or Lattes before noon, but for most people it will hit the spot as a great mainstay to have on hand when you want something sweet and naughty. For many people that is everyday and all day long! This is a fun right quote.
