Visions In Focus Roaster: Hart Coffee

Seattle’s self proclaimed “garage born” coffee roaster Hart is the newest addition to our Visions In Focus program! Usually you have to trek to the Northeast neighborhood of Bryant to get your hands on this tasty coffee but for a limited time you can stop by our Seattle showroom to get your fix.

This was one of the first Ethiopian coffees that Hart was able to taste of the 2015-2016 crop and they loved it! It’s a washed heirloom varietal coffee from the Oromia sub-district of Limu. The floral aromatics, understated acidity and big sweetness elevate this from just your “classic” washed Ethiopia to a true experience. We’re so happy to share this beautiful coffee with you at our Seattle Showroom.

Visions In Focus Roaster: Novo Coffee

It’s time for a new Visions In Focus roaster! We have a limited supply of Denver’s very own Novo Coffee that you can purchase directly from our Seattle showroom.

We’ve brought in Novo’s Rwanda Nyamagabe. You’ll find notes of grape, dark chocolate, and almond butter in this full bodied coffee. Novo brews all of their single serve with the Kalita Wave using a 1:17 ratio (1 gram of coffee and 17 of water). They recommend brewing this coffee on the Chemex with roughly a 1:15 ratio, trying to replicate a full immersion brew. Their Head Roaster, Erich Rosenberg placed 5th in the finals of United States Brewers Cup in 2016 using this recipe. If you’d like to try before you buy we’d be more than happy to brew up a cup for you. This coffee will go fast so make sure to get here soon to secure your bag!
