Green Coffee Outlook -February 2021 – for Sweet Maria’s and Coffee Shrub

Stay up to date on coffee we have coming down the pipeline and our latest green coffee arrivals schedule.

Green Coffee Notes for February 2021:

  • We currently have more coffee in limbo between the Port of Oakland and the Annex offsite coffee storage facility than we do on the water…that’s a first!
  • I’m not complaining, just stating the facts. But containers are moving, and the folks responsible for that transport are all doing a fantastic job keeping the trickle constant despite the mountain of work they are up against.
  • For our part, we’re keeping the conversation with our importers constant so that we are ready to take our incoming arrivals as soon as they are ready. All eyes are on our email inboxes awaiting “stripping reports” from the warehouse (the report that accounts for coffee coming off a 20 foot shipping container, signaling the coffee is finally available for pickup).
  • You’ll see in our updates below that a lot of the coffees are marked “AT PORT”. This status isn’t entirely accurate as many of those have actually moved from the Port of Oakland and are waiting to be unloaded at the Annex.
  • What this means for the next few weeks is that we are having to shift around our new coffee additions in order to accommodate some of these delays. See the Upcoming Coffee list below for the latest update.
  • On the more distant horizon, we’re wading through piles of Ethiopia and Kenya samples from the current crop and doing what we can to get fresh reinforcements here before Summer. Fingers crossed!

As always, send any coffee questions to us at [email protected], or wholesale questions at [email protected]. We’re here to help.

  1. Waiting for good Sumatras with the herbal flavor — my very fav — but they seem few. Any good alternatives that fit that profile?

    1. Hey Julie! I hear “herbal” and my mind goes to wet hulled coffees. Right now we just have the one, Kerinci Tujuh Cooperative, but it’s definitely on the herbal side. Next week we are posting a really interesting wet-hulled Java called “Tambak Ruyung”. It hits a lot of those Lintong-like herbal/earthy flavor notes in the cup, lower acid, thick body etc. Certainly one to check out if you’re a fan of Sumatran coffee! In addition, we have a couple more Sumatras going up in March that I think you’ll like, including the ever popular Raja Batak Peaberry that we haven’t had for a while. Hope that helps!


    1. Hey Bill,

      Good question. The Yemen actually just went afloat last week and I will post an updated ETA in the March Outlook. Right now we’re looking at mid April arrival, which means hopefully fresh coffee on the list by May. Fingers crossed!


  2. Gents, when would you estimate SM’s next robusta stocks will arrive? SM’s Flores and Rwanda robustas of recent years were rare, fantastic components in 3-part blends to make delicious caps. Thank you!

    1. Thanks for the question and glad to hear you’ve enjoyed the Robusta we’ve had in the past.

      We tried picking up a couple nice lots in our last Indonesia container (the contents of which start to go live this week – Sulawesi, Flores, Java etc), but unfortunately, weren’t able to secure the two lots we liked. That’s just how it goes sometimes.

      Robusta is a tough one for us We don’t have it very often because we have trouble finding examples that hit our quality target. So nothing in the near future, but that could change.

      Wish I had better news!

      Thanks again for checking in.


  3. Thank you Dan! I really appreciate the suggestion and will look out for the Tambak Ruyung. (You don’t have to post this 😉 ) Have a great week.
