Coffee Shrub

Happy holidays from Coffee Shrub! This time of year can be crazy for fulfillment and shipping so please plan ahead when placing your order. Expect an extra business day for order processing and fulfillment for UPS orders during the holidays, November 26th-January 4th. UPS doesn’t count weekends, holidays or the day of pickup as transit time. Freight orders will require two additional days to fulfill and there may be extended time in transit due to carriers’ holiday schedules. See our closure dates here.

Coffee is a multi-stemmed, gangly, awkward, diminutive shrub. Coffee Shrub is dimunitive too; a micro-seller of coffee serving shops that roast. We sell green coffee in batches that equal roughly a bit less than 1/2 or 3/4 of a traditional jute bag packaged in Grain-Pro lined bags, at either 50lbs. or 100lbs. You have the convenience of thorough, descriptive reviews as a starting point for your own tasting notes and also relevant information about the farms, including images that you can use to promote the coffee. Look over our coffees and see if any of these offerings would complement your current list.

Two Barrels, One Java   In QC-ing a few of the Shrub coffees this week, this Java stood out as cupping especially fresh and sweet. I figured that now is as good a time as any to write a short feature of sorts -- roast the coffee to a couple...

Hey Leon, good question. The Thageini is a September 2015 arrival. We're planning on upgrading our records after the first of the year, arrival date on the list of fields to add. Please feel free to ask me directly about any other coffees on our list. Best, Dan Wood

Great article! It brought clarity to the term "honey process", which seems a little misleading. I prefer the term "machine-washed". We have both of these coffees. Neither was slated for espresso, but we're stoked to pull some shots and possibly make room for it on our espresso bar. And thanks for the roasting tips!(view)

Hello, I am interested in buying a lot of this specific bean, but our store has not been built yet. Do you have a projected time for how long you will have this in stock? If not, I may just make the purchase now. (view)
