Coffee

Weekly Special

Great Arabica coffee is grown throughout the world. We could not possibly roast and stock each and every one of them because the coffee would never be fresh! Freshness, careful micro roasting and cup integrity of the bean are our priorities. To offer as many coffee adventures as possible, each week Old City Coffee roasts a special coffee available at a great price for one week only. These selections are chosen to offer our customers a wide variety of taste profiles and are sourced seasonally from our Farm Partners in diverse coffee growing regions. Specials begin on Wednesdays and are available through the following Tuesday.

November 5th - November 11th
Lake Victoria East Africa

This "double picked" Arabica coffee from the Bugisu region of Uganda is a "secret" amongst coffee buffs. The landlocked region near Lake Victoria has had great difficulty getting it's terrific Arabica coffee crop to port until recently. The arabicas are grown on the jungle slopes of Mt. Elgon at about 4500 feet above sea level. These conditions make for a very hard bean suitable for darker roasting as we have done here. Bugisu coffee has more body than most East African coffees. and somewhat lower acidity similar to a Sumatra. The mild cherry/dark chocolate flavor profile is unique through because of this coffees "dry method" processing that allows the coffee cherry to fully ripen dry on the tree. We also picked up a butterscotch finish. Enjoy!

November 12th - November 18th
Nicaragua Los Pinos Estate

The USDA certified organic coffee has lots of sweet caramel notes. We think you will enjoy this clean. crisp and smooth medium roast arabican coffee. Would, but this is pretty darn close.

November 19th - December 2nd
Dark Mocha Java

A favorite treat for Thanksgiving! Our take on the oldest coffee blend in the world-roasted medium dark to bring out the best of the all flavors. Ethiopia Harrar contributes vivid fruity notes and verve. This is combined with Sumatra Mandheling for a smooth and rich undercurrent of flavors and syrupy body. The cup finished with a clean combination of citrus and tobacco hints.

December 3rd - December 9th
Reed Sea Blend

This medium-roasted blend is our unique combination of natural rich, full skin Ethiopian 1 Sidamo Grade 4 Gujiand with the wonderfully fruity, zesty Harrar. These varieties, which descend from the original coffee crop, yield authenticity, intense flavors, and a ritualistic after meal treat. Their flavor comes from the local energy-filled volcanic soil, which provides a mineral bath for the crops to sprout from. These beans are truly evocative of the mythical first coffee farmer, Kaldi the goat herder, a ninth century Ethiopian.

December 10th - December 16th
Fair Trade Organic Brazil Nossa Senhora de Fatima

Grown in hyper sustainable 235 hectare the idyllic Minas Gerais area of Brazil, de Fatima is a one hundred per cent organic single origin estate bean. Grown at 3,120 feet
above sea level using heorloom Icatu and Mundo Novo cultivars, it is clean, balanced and bright with a buttery finish at our medium roast.
