Savory notes in coffee? It happens more than one might reflexively think. And not just with tomato-y leaning coffees from Kenya. What we grind and extract to make delicious beverages is a seed, from a fruit. We in coffee tend to make a big deal about this, some leaning hard into this fact as a major branding point or naming convention. But a quick Google search reveals beans are also edible seeds. So everyone’s right, then. What follows is largely sense experience findings and not from peer reviewed food science journals.
This weekend (February 9th and 10th) we will be rolling out in full force our Colombia Tosoabi (washed) (look for notes of McIntosh apple, cinnamon, demerara sugar) of the Narino department, as well as, our Honduras Juan Contreras, Las Flores (washed) (look for notes of hops, cedar, cherry).
It's been 7 years since we opened Sump in STL, back on December 1st, 2011. And in that time we've accumulated a lot of stuff. This Saturday in STL, we'll be offering some of that stuff to you in the form of what we're calling a Yard Sale. There are some treasures in this lot. Most of it represents glassware we might have once used or the sets became incomplete through breakage, as well as, some orphan brewing devices. There are going to be bargains all around. The goal is for you to take them home, so deep discounts. Check out Instagram stories for some teasers of items that will be offered starting tomorrow.
SANTA. PICTURES. GEZELLIG. SUNDAY 12/16.

The holidays are here! Oh snap! the holidays (moving so quickly, practically lap themselves before the actual calendar day(s) arrive) are here? Gulp! With their arrival, the age old questions of who and where to share your time in these effervescent windows of cheer and reflection. And for those special people in your life (sometimes referred to as naughty and nice), the eternal question of, what to gift (corporeal or non-corporeal)? Well since this is a coffee blog, spoilers, coffee suggestions ahead.
