Varietals

Colombian coffee is ubiquitous and popular, and the Coffee Federation of Colombia has done a great job of bringing high quality coffee to grocery stores and restaurants around the world. We bring even more exceptional Colombian coffee to our shop. In general Colombian coffees are well balanced, medium bodied and bright. Only in recent years has Colombian coffee been marketed by growing regions. In the past the whole of the country was the brand marketing tool, not its specific regions.

Guatemalan coffee is considered to be some of the most amazing, fragrant and aromatic coffee in the world. At Northwest Coffee, we bring you some of the best Guatemalean coffee, roasted to perfection. Our Guatemalean beans come from the Huehuetenango (way-way-ten-nang-oh) region of the country, which produces bright, floral and fruity coffee. We roast it to a smooth, easygoing cup, bringing you a little bit of Central America.

  Peru, like Guatemala, is regarded as the source of some of the most flavorful and aromatic coffees in the world. In contrast to Guatemalan coffee, Peruvian has more of a buttery flavor.

  Ethiopian coffee beans are grown in 3 regions: Harar, Sadamo, and Yirgacheffe (Irgacheffe).  We source our beans from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia.  Coffee hold s a special place in Ethiopian culture.  Much of Ethiopian coffee is not exported, but instead is enjoyed by the Ethiopian people, for whom coffee is traditional and ceremonial.

Tanzanian Peaberry is an exotic coffee grown on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro. Peaberry is the term for a coffee cherry that only develops one bean instead of the usual two. Folk wisdom tells us that the robust flavor of the peaberry comes from all of the coffee goodness being packed into a single bean.

Sumatra, the westernmost island of Indonesia, produces a complex and wild jungle coffee. It is deep and full bodied, earthy with a hint of musk. Sumatran coffee is often laid out over the jungle floor to dry after processing. Due to this drying process it isn’t uncommon to find all manner of debris, such as sticks and bits of stone mixed in with the green beans.

Blends

Each of our blends bring together two or more of our varietals to create something unique. Blending is an opportunity for us to isolate and enrich the flavors in your cup of coffee.
