My coffee available

You can order my coffee online. I ship all of my orders a maximum of 3 days out of the roaster once you try fresh roasted coffee it will spoil you for everything else.

Odysseys is looking for a dark roast:
I'm currently featuring a Sumatra that is a rich dark roast, it's a heavy bodied coffee with a hint of dark bittersweet chocolate.

The other one to try is the Papau New Guinea We just got this coffee back in stock. There was a very heavy rainy season this year and shipments were delayed, but it was worth the wait. this is not quite as dark a roast as the Sumatra but ir is a very well rounded coffee with a hint of nuttyness and maybe cane sugar. It should be available on our website in the next couple of days.

For those looking for a lighter roast I would suggest our Colombian for a really classic coffee or our Yergacheffe for a sweet coffee with a blueberry overtone.

I will be updating the website with our current offerings as the site has not been our main business focus.

Thanks to Odesseys for allowing me to post this on here.

Nice site! I remember you talking about this a few months back, when we visited your shop. Will probably toss in an order this weekend.

The coffee industry is funny, "Bad Ass Coffee" named after the donkeys that plantation owners in Kona use to move their coffee. Has been literally pushed out of a few towns in Chicagoland because of their name. We think we live in the progressive area but the truth is that things are still very conservative.

No the site shouldn't be charging tax to out of Staters. We have had some glitches so let me know if there is a problem. The website really has taken a back seat to our retail, wholesale and consulting. We'll be updating it with better descriptions and more coffees I currently have 15 single origin coffees at the store but not all are available on the site.

You get your coffee roasted in CR? You wouldn't buy Italian bread baked in Italy then shipped over here would you? It's kind of the same thing, we recommend using coffee within 15 days out of the roaster. Coffee is like fresh bread there is a life and body to it that starts to change pretty rapidly at the two week point. I promise you'll be blown away.

Yep, I actually do a lot of light roasts, really, with color closer to cinnamon than to the Dark Chocolate of the dark roasts you typically see. Depending on the bean you can bring out a number of tastes from Citrus to fruity, it's pretty amazing. Just like different grapes create different tasting wines different beans create different tasting coffees and we try to roast in a way that highlights what is best in each bean.

I have someone bring me beans from CR every couple of week, but yes they are already roasted.

Sounds good, I'll checkout the site, maybe stop by

How are these roasted?

I like an Air Roasted Breakfast Blend or house blend that's not bitter, but strong.

Typically I drink Stewards if I buy local (surprisingly good for canned crap), but I like to treat myself to to www.RavensBrew.com (no affiliation )

How about some Kuala Lumpure?

Ordered some Sumatra. Charged something like $0.37 in tax. no big deal.

Can't wait to get it! Recently I've been getting my coffee from either wholelattelove.com or the local international market place has a decent selection, but there's no telling how long its been sitting around.

Recieve my Sumatra yesterday.


This stuff is AWESOME. I'm a coffee snob, lets get that out of the way. I don't drink Folgers or any of that crap. I'm picky about it.

Opening the vaccum bag, the aroma alone is better than any of the Italian import coffees I normally by. They smell fresher and less 'burnt'

I got my Rocky (grinder) dialed in and pulled a few shots. Crema was pretty good. This stuff was very SMOOTH. Low acidity, nice earthy almost chocalatey finish.

I'm definitely going to be a repeat customer. This is high quality coffee. if you're picky and want only the best, give Coffeeguy a try.

Thanks for the kind words, we work pretty hard finding only the best coffees we can. Let me tell you guys it's tough sampling all that coffee. That Sumatra is great brewed with a french press, for espresso you guys should try my Brothers Blend it is my house espresso and we do our espresso a bit different I profile roast each of the coffees to their own perfect roast level then blend the espresso post roast. Most roasters blend their espresso then roast it all to the same level. By blending after the roast I can bring out those chocolate tones in the Sumatra but I can also roast the Ethiopian lighter to bring out it's natural sweetness and berry tones. The end result is an espresso the just dances on the tongue.

Rob what kind of espresso machine are you using?

I've got a Rancilio Rocky/Silvia combo. Great machines for the money. One of these days I'd like to get a super-automatic for quick easy cappuccino, or at least something with a dual boiler like a Brewtus. Then have a pure old school manual machine like a La Pavoni with the lever and everything for playing Barista.


And that blend sounds really good. Expect an order very soon. In fact, let me know when you'll be making the next batch.

Never had French press. May have to give it a shot.

I can't imagine that it would be anything less than stellar, though.
