Northshore Specialty Coffees

Categories: Church,Events,Stories

Roasting and selling coffee is just one way we demonstrate our desire to live life together in harmony and share everything we have.

You don’t need a culinary degree to tell the difference. Offering only “specialty coffees” is one way we demonstrate our pursuit of excellence in all we do. Our coffees are made from 100% premium Arabica beans, roasted fresh right here.  Our beans are roasted in their prime, and they don’t lie about their age: each bag has it’s birth date right there on the front. But here’s a fair warning: once you’ve experienced truly fresh coffee, there’s no turning back.

Indonesia Sulawesi Kalossi

Best when dark roasted. The coffee has a rich, full body, low to mild acidity, big body and aromatic. Generally display nutty or warm spice notes, like cinnamon or cardamom. The aftertaste coats the palate on the finish and is smooth and soft.

Interesting fact: Sulawesi produces only around 70,000 bags of coffee each year at around 760m to 1070m above sea level. Sulawesi lies to the North of Timor and the town of Kalossi is slightly to the south of the town of Rantepao in the growing region of Toraja. The coffee trees are grown on small plots around the villagers’ houses and the entire family engages in the picking and processing. Coffee is even grown on the rice paddies that provide the staple diet. Coffee serves as a cash crop that supplements the family income.

Tanzania Peabody

Best experienced as a light-medium roasted coffee that is full of flavor – Peaberry beans are small, round coffee beans with a cleft in the middle; they have a richer flavor than their oval- shaped counterparts, often rendering a livelier cup with a full body and distinguished aroma, though much lighter in acidity than most African coffee.

Interesting fact: Grown and harvested on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, a dormant volcano in northern Tanzania, the highest peak in Africa at 19,330 feet. Kilimanjaro’s lower slopes provide fertile soil to grow Tanzania Peaberry Coffee, and the climate provides excellent conditions for coffee trees to thrive. – Peaberry coffee is rare; only 5% of all coffee develops with this characteristic.
