Tri-Caffe Wood Roasted Espresso from Pistoia, Tuscany
25 years ago, Iano de Grazia introduced me to this, the best Espresso coffee in the world. I would come home from Italy with a few pounds when I could get it. Now it has arrived in the USA. I have selected a 80/20 blend for it wonderful crema as well as it's ability to stand up milk. 80/20 refers to the amount of Arabica (80%) and Robusta (20%) beans in the coffee. Contrary to what you may have heard, top quality Robusta is not inferior to Arabica beans just different. Robusta supplies the body and chocolate overtones.
Stumptown Drip Coffee
We are proud to have been Stumptown's first NJ client. They go beyond "Fair Trade" with their "Direct Trade", which means standing face-to-face with the farmer, year-in and year-out. It means asking for the best coffee, and paying an unparalleled price. The process begins at origin, and it continues harvest after harvest as they nurture the relationships to bring each coffee to its fullest potential.
a complex blend featuring coffee from all three of the major growing regions; Latin America, East Africa and Indonesia. They devote constant attention to Hair Bender and are proud of its status as their most popular coffee. It can have five to eight different coffees at any given time.

Clean, smooth and moderate in body. A blend of Latin American & Indonesian coffees decaffeinated by the "Mountain Water Process" which uses a water filtration device to remove virtually all of the caffeine from the beans. No chemicals are used.
