You may have noticed fewer varietals available. Not to worry...our new coffees are en route from Kenya, El Salvador and Guatemala. Get ready for some amazing coffee!
99 bottles of … cold-brew? This super-sessionable bottled coffee from California-based Barefoot Coffee Roasters refreshes with floral flavors and notes of tangerine and herbs. Toddy-brewed with beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala, this brew is incredibly thirst-quenching, making it a great entry point for iced-tea drinkers.
Review: Barefoot Coffee is a hidden oasis for the coffee connoisseur
By Stan Rezaee
Our new spring blend of The Boss Espresso is now available. Wait until you try this! Some of our best Direct Trade beans make up this seasonal offering.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of strawberry, rhubarb and orange blossom. Syrupy molasses midtones flecked with cooked blueberries. Thick doses of milk chocolate in the finish.
5 Must stops in San Jose includes the Roastery... thanks to Madewell which just opened at Santana Row.
April 25, 2013
We just opened our first store in San Jose and so, to mark the occasion, we thought we’d share our five favorite spots in this quaint corner of California. Think Egyptian relics, homemade favorites and grown-up board games.
1. The Worldly Wonder
This local institution houses the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in western North America. There are real mummies in there. Need we say more?
2. The Textile Shrine
We’re suckers for interesting fabrics and patterns, so it’s our must-see for a steady stream of unexpected DIY inspiration.
3. The Healthful Pit Stop
This small, under-the-radar shop in Japantown specializes in homemade tofu and unbelievably fresh soy milk. Try their tofu pudding with ginger syrup on a lazy Saturday afternoon.
4. The Big-Time Board Game
We didn’t believe it at first, but just outside the Children’s Discovery Museum is a life-sized Monopoly board etched right into the concrete. There are even gigantic plush dice, wearable playing pieces and an on-site banker doling out paper money—it puts the board game version to shame.
5. The Coffee Class
Though coffee culture can be a bit snobbish, this local roastery instead focuses on educating its clientele. Between espresso and drip samplings, cold brew tastings and roasting classes, it’s an aromatic (not to mention tasty) learning experience.
