March Coffee Additions

Hello fellow coffee lovers!  I'd like to introduce you to two new coffees we're featuring in the café this month.  As we move from one season to the next, the chill is almost gone from the canyon and we are beginning to shift our focus to outdoor living and gardening; we feel as though these coffees reflect that changing season in their own way.

Along with our wonderful Costa Rican, Columbian, and Kenyan offerings, Guatemala Gesha is still in the spotlight on pour-over for $4 a cup! We’ll be running a sale on 8oz. retail bags while it lasts. 20% off! That’s $16. A very unique coffee for a very unique price. 

We’re well under way in our Free Public Cuppings, the last Friday of every month at 10am (March 25th) . Come taste our coffees, and get involved in the process of what we choose to buy for you.

Lastly, we are now offering our whole coffee beans for purchase online for those of you unable to visit the shop.  View our current selection any time at www.indiangardens.com/shop 

See you soon!

Happy Sipping,

Our Cupping Notes

This high altitude coffee comes from a región in Guatemala that borders Mexico. Coffees grown at higher altitues are usually heavily sought after. We’re happy to have this one in our arsenal of coffees right now. This is a great offering for folks who want an “honest cup of coffee”. The medium roast profile brings out a Mandarin Orange aroma, a nice acidity thats not overwhelming, notes of raisin or cocoa poder, and a spiced finish leaving you wanting more. It rounds out the work day, or perhaps starts yours on the right foot. This coffee is a working class hero.

Our Cupping Notes

This coffee comes to us from a cooperative of farmers that pay a lot of attention to detail, and it shows in the cup. It is instinctively Ethiopian, you can taste the terroir in the cup. Perhaps a perfect Spring cup of coffee that one might choose to indulge in while prepping your garden for the coming season. It’s still crisp in the morning here in Oak Creek Canyon, and we would be hard pressed to find a better coffee to bring warmth to the bones.

We found earthy flavors providing a full body taste, with a suprisingly smooth and tangy finish, letting this coffee go down easy.
