We've got 4 espresso catering gigs under our belts now, and things are going well. We're getting more efficient and planning is getting easier. Everyone has been very happy with the service so far, so we must be doing something right!
We've made the decision to use biodegradable, compostable cups for our catering. While these are more expensive, we want to be proud of what we serve and how we serve it.
Please get in touch if you're interested in having us sling some coffee at your party or event. We are looking to get involved in the community, and would be happy to work with you on reduced pricing or donations for a good cause!
We've designed some new labels and they've finally arrived in roll-form thanks to the sticker craftsmen at Sticker Mule. We'll be slapping them on all bags from here on out.
Additionally, we've changed the name of the dark roast from Smokescreen to Shogun. The coffee itself is still the same, but the name Shogun better reflects the concept behind the coffee, and it thematically ties our coffee offerings together rather nicely.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support!
A new coffee is now available as Shogun: Honduras Pacavita Reserve, an organically grown coffee.
Please also note that Shogun will now be coming in 12 oz. bags instead of 16 oz! We had gotten a crazy deal on the previous coffee (Peru - Cafe Chonta) which allowed us to sell it in larger bags for the same price. As we've moved on to a new coffee we have to update our prices to cover costs and stay afloat. Thank you for your understanding and continued support!
We're now offering coffee catering in the Houston area! Rent a espresso bar with full barista service for home or office parties. We've seen first hand that this is a perfect way to show appreciation for your employees, especially with the holidays coming! Click here for details and a quote.
There is just one bag of India Peaberry left! Who will claim it before it is gone forever?
This has been one of our favorites and we're going to miss it, but we must move forward! And fear not, we already have a delicious new coffee on deck!
The first coffee featured for the Ronin roast, Ethiopian Limu Gera, has sold out! The Ronin roams on, however, and now showcases an Indian Peaberry coffee.
Peaberry beans are slightly different than normal coffee beans. During harvest, farmers identify which beans are peaberries (about 5% of the harvest) and sort them into a separate pile. These are sold together at a higher price than the rest of the harvest, as coffee fanatics will pay a premium for lots of peaberry-only coffee. Why? They say peaberries pack more flavor than normal beans.
So is it true? Try some and find out!
