It's been 11 Years

Sunday family selfie time! 😃 #21months #familyselfie

This season is 11 years since we opened our little coffee shop. We have met many wonderful people over the years. We've seen children grow into adults and high school sweethearts become husband and wife. We've shared birthdays, holidays, rainy days, and weddings. But it is the drinks we make that allow us to thank you every day.

It is a privilege to make you smile, and we are honored you are part of our lives. We all look forward to a terrific year twelve!

with love, 

-- John, Yiching, and Alex

Costa Rica Chirripo -- Finca Jonny

Warm days are siphon days, too! #singleorigin #siphoncoffee #caffedbolla #slc #coffee #roaster

Finca Jonny is a 7-hectare family-run farm in the La Piedra de Rivas region of a National Park zone called Chirripo in a hidden corner of Costa Rica. Jonny (of Finca Jonny) decided to build a micromill and a greenhouse on the farm for processing and screen drying. The results are outstanding and the investment shines in the cup.

In the cup it's grape jelly, blackberry, and plum juice with a touch of coconut lil and snappy acidity to hold it all together.

Try it On Siphon while it's available!

Kenya Kirinyaga Kiangoi AB

Yiching says-- 

It's been quite busy at the shop, and John's been roasting a lot. There are many new coffees this season that John's been putting up on the shelves and also featuring on our siphon coffee menu. I, however, have not been at the shop much and therefore haven't been posting much about these coffees... but here I am, determined to post more and tell you more about some of the most popular beans we're offering at caffe d'bolla.

Lots of coffee roasting on this cool and rainy day. Come pick up some beans! #singleorigin #coffeebeans #coffeeroaster #caffedbolla #slc #coffee #roaster

And this post is about a super delicious African coffee-- Kenya Kirinyaga Kiangoi AB.

Kiangoi is a coffee mill in Kenya. It is one of he processing stations of the Rung'eto Farmers Cooperative Society. While we like estate coffees, sometimes the quality from certain co-ops is superior. In a cooperative, each member is tending to only 200-500 trees on less than a hectare, as opposed to a huge estate that uses agribusiness growing methods. This more "personal" attention is reflected in the cup. Outstanding!

In the cup it's grape, mango, mulling spices, and vanilla bean with a refreshing apple acidity.

Come pick up a bag before it's done for the season!
