We just added some direct trade fresh crop teas to the shelves, some home barista gear, and the larger concentrate bottles. The shelves are quite full of fresh roasted coffee. A little bit of everything barismo to get you through the holidays. #giftideas #arlingtonma #cambridgema
We now have a limited edition release of this single bag lot from Hacienda Santa Rosa on our shelves. Yep, Gustavo only had about 150 lbs worth of yield and we got it all. It's a new micro plot surrounded and isolated by forest corridors on all sides. This plot has similar elevation to Buena Esperanza. High nitrogen soil and it's planted under the existing rustic hardwood canopy. This is a beautiful plot and a beautiful coffee. Available at @barismo171 and @barismo364. #blog
New selection of limited edition bottles go out this week. New jammy Kenyan in the howlers/shorties is a must try. #twitter
Open in Arlington and mid Cambridge, closed in Kendall. Spent some time picking coffee cherries off our 7 yr old red bourbon tree in Arlington today. These will go into our nursery with the one year olds already there after they germinate (2 months).
Our retail locations will be closing early today, closed tomorrow and Friday. Drop by 364 Broadway if you want retail bags, we have fresh roasted and some sale bags.
Tomorrow: 9AM to 11AM, Alexandra of @gatecommedesfilles will be sampling chocolates at @barismo364. A new partnership where you will have a chance to try them and ask questions before we begin offering it in store. Part of a new partnership series to highlight other founders of small businesses. #twitter
Hot draft of a Thai coffee we brewed with @beanspirecoffee. Thailand is a producing country with a lot of potential but also several problems to overcome in the near term. Storage of green, processing, and varietals to name a few. The biggest problem will be one of brand. As Thai coffee improves, it will face a perception bias. Many roasters will simply write it off because they will lump it in with other asian coffees. That means lower price offers and often a basic unwillingness to sample them. We are betting that over the next few years companies like beanspire will overcome many of the hurdles to get better. Expect more info on that this winter. #blog
