Coffees List:

19 Bold FTO

Our heartiest, richest blend combines a dark roast along with a medium roast to create a coffee that is full-bodied with a heavy aroma and wonderful notes of bittersweet dark chocolate, caramel and butterscotch.

Roast Profile: Combination Medium and Dark

19 Smooth

Don’t be misled. Smooth doesn’t mean overly light or wimpy. Our House Smooth Blend is a unique combination of four coffees from all the major growing regions of the world, creating a solid bodied cup that is sweet and fruity with a prominent dry red wine flavor at the front, a bit of a bite in the middle, and a clean, smooth finish.

Roast Profile: Light to Medium

19 Stout Espresso

The name says it all. The darkest of our espresso blends has a heavy, syrupy body with a thick crema. Rich, yet unbelievably smooth, it has a perfectly balanced bittersweet and smoky flavor with notes of tobacco and licorice. The flavors stay with you long after it’s gone, and it holds up very well to any milk based beverages. A unique combination of coffees from all the major growing regions of the world, this blend is the original definition of an espresso.

Decaf Colombia

Similar to its caffeinated counterpart, our decaf Colombian has a soft floral aroma with smooth chocolate notes. It makes a great decaf drip coffee, but it also shines as a single origin decaf espresso.

Ethiopia Sidamo (Natural Processed) FT/O

In 1999 the (OCFCU) Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union was started. It is now the largest fair trade coffee producer in Ethiopia. The coop has approximately 23,691 members from 35 different Ethiopian coops who have come together with a common goal—exporting their coffee directly to specialty markets. The members of the cooperative use  the revenue from the fair trade sales in the US and Europe to continue their commitment to organic production. This includes the purchase and repair of equipment, hosting workshops on composting and natural fertilizers and lessening their dependence on imported foods.

French Roast Blend FTO

Two Central American beans come together to create our darkest roasted coffee. It has a heavy, straightforward aroma and flavor and a solid but very smooth body. There is a butterscotch and caramel sweetness in the middle of the cup. A smoky tobacco finish and a bittersweet chocolate aftertaste linger long after the cup is gone, leaving you with a very satisfied coffee experience.

Roast Profile: Dark

FTO Espresso

This three bean Fair Trade Organic espresso bursts with a syrupy, fruity brightness right from the start. It gets just a little spicy in the middle and has a lingering, dessert-like sweetness on the finish. A buttery crema and body make this espresso a perfect after dinner coffee. Look no further. You’ve found the perfect summer evening coffee. (It’s good in the winter, too, though.)

Roast Profile: Combination Light, Medium, Dark

FTO Sumatra Mandheling

The Cooperative Gayo Linge Organic Coffee (GLOC) was formed in August of 2008, and consists of over 2,000 coffee farmers from the  Bener Meriah Regency, in the Aceh province of northern Sumatra. Coffee sales account for 60% to 90% of income for the families in the cooperative, but most also sell vegetables, fruits, and palm sugar. Many families were forced to abandon their coffee gardens during the armed conflict that occupied this region from the late 1990s thru 2004. Many cooperative members today are widows as a result of this unrest. Most families in the cooperative live in wooden houses, and have access to electricity, but access to clean drinking water is an issue during the dry season. Many members live an hour or more by car from GLOC’s central offices. During the rainy season the roads are not navigable so revenues from the Organic and Fair Trade premiums realized by the cooperative are being used to improve roads in the area to develop and maintain safe, reliable drinking water sources. They also hope to build a processing facility in the future.

The Coop members are from approximately 30 small villages in the Huehuetenango region, surrounded by the Cuchumantanes Mountains and the Maxbal Forest Reserve.

Wet process, patio drying. Shade grown. Solid body, very balanced flavor with a bit of a sharp finish.

Tanzanian Peaberry Ruvuma

Wet process. 3,900-5,900 feet. Volcanic soil. Sweet lemon-honey start, gentle citrus notes in the middle, and a light chocolate finish. Inaccessibility of the region, poor infrastructure and political uncertainty had long prevented this high quality coffee from consistently reaching the international market, but that has changed recently. New and refurbished pulperies have been able to pay the farmer the same price he would receive if he had processed the coffee at home. In return the farmers have been able to take better care in tending and harvesting the coffee.

Region: Nyamtimbo-Songea Ruvuma, South Tanzainia

Toraja Sulawesi

Our Coffees

Our Coffees

19-coffee-14

19 Coffee Company was founded on the principles of sourcing high quality, sustainable raw coffee beans, roasting them in a way that allows their inherent flavors to stand out, and sharing with you all of the significant information about our coffees, including traceability, coffee processing, co-op affiliation, certifications, and cupping characteristics.

We micro-roast beans from different regions of the coffee producing world daily. Every coffee that leaves our shop has been roasted within the past 48 hours. That is fresh.

We give careful thought and attention to all stages of the product’s development, beginning with purchasing superior beans through micro-roasting to assure the finest finished product. We are constantly cupping new coffees, examining small farms and cooperatives, trying new beans from around the world, and continually looking to expand our knowledge, expertise and coffee offerings.

Once we get a coffee in our roaster we try a few different roasts based on the background of each specific coffee. We roast all of our coffees by hand never leaving perhaps the most important step to computers. There are recipes……and then there’s the way your grandmother cooked. We like to think of ourselves as coffee grandmothers.

When it comes to our house blends we bring together coffees which complement each other in acidity, body and general taste. While we love our origin coffees, we also believe that the marriage of certain coffees can create extremely unique taste profiles.

We love doing what we do and believe that you’ll love what we do too!
