Six Under Six – Feb. 2017

February 3, 2017

There are many factors that determine how much a pound of green coffee will cost you and price doesn’t always dictate how much you will enjoy a particular coffee.  It all depends on your taste buds. It’s important that you trust your taste and don’t judge a coffee based on how much it costs or what others tell you is good.
With that said, here’s six great coffees all priced under six dollars. Check out the cupping notes and you will notice a wide variety of flavors. A low price doesn’t mean that we are compromising on the quality of the coffee we offer. We have high standards and we stand by them as we continue to source well priced coffees, where the farmer gets paid a premium and your cup is still great.
