Coffee Shrub

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.

Hello, thanks for the message. "Amir" is a common name, and so I have no way of knowing if this is the same coffee you purchased. Best of luck!(view)

Back in May, I think it was, I bought some coffee at Carulla, here in Barranquilla, and the coffee was called Al Amir. It was a wonderful coffee with cardamomo. Is that the coffee you are referring to in your article? I love that coffee, it is by far my favorite, so far anyway, but now I cannot find it anywhere. Very disappointing. I want more of...(view)
Hey there, the San Diego Buena Vista is a good starting point, being that it's fully washed (processing), and sorted really well. These factors affect things like roast evenness, both physical and visibly (in this case it will be nice and even), which help when judging how a coffee is progressing through the roast process. I'm emailing you offline...(view)

I'm just venturing into commercial (transitioning from years of Home Roasting). Is this a good coffee to start with for the general public? Any other suggestions that would be better? Thanks!(view)

Hi Jesse, We're generally charging to about 400 on the analogue. The first batch will go fast, which is normal. I find consistency by the 3rd batch, so it's ideal to wait until at least the 2nd batch to drop the coffee you actually want to roast, with round 3 being my preferred starting point. I hope this makes sense! Best, Dan(view)
