Bird Rock Coffee: National Acclaim

Posted on 19 September 2010 by John Rippo

Bird Rock Coffee Roasters has been getting lots of mileage lately; winning “coffee of the year” from the SCAA for their Colombian Buenavista Carlos Imbachi; a plum-like, mellow full city roast that has a fine finish and is a great port and brie kind of coffee. Pictured at left is their Haraaz Supreme; a Yemeni hand-picked bean grown in ecologically pure conditions. The light roast yields up a fruity, tart cup that has some great high notes and a pleasant nose. The coffee was rated highly in the August Food & Wine magazine for its overall cup quality and we think they hit the nail on the head. Along with these offerings Bird Rock is now selling a wonderful aged Blue Batak from Indonesia. This peaberry gives a mellow, smoky flavor with a taste of licorice We found it excellent in a french press and think it’s just the thing to go with a richer, heavier feast of meat, sauces and bold tastes. This bean will stay right with them.

    It appears as though Julian Assange will at least be out on bail any minute but what about Bradley Manning? Solitary confinement for seven months so far without being convicted of anything, without even a trial. That’s bad!

    It’s not difficult at all for a lot of people to just switch off the TV and forget about the horrible things that happen in this world. I cannot close my eyes to the pain of a nation. After the Sendai Earthquake, Japan currently has some 10,000 missing peoples including many foreign vistors. They need our help. If you are able to spare even the smallest amount, please remember to donate to Japan. Even if you can’t give money, don’t forget to pray for the Japanese people.
