After a month of enjoying the George Howell Terroir Pulcal we have moved onto a new coffee offering from our local roastery. Notes of Darjeeling, lemon, and apricot make a cup of the George Howell Terroir Konga a uniquely delicious coffee. If the caffeine doesn't wake you up, the zesty lemon end notes will be sure to do the job! The beans are certified organic and sourced from a number of small farms in Ethiopia (many of which are run by women). This not only yields a great tasting cup of coffee, but also means you're doing your part to help world coffee farmers.
The Konga beans grabbed the attention of the Good Food awards this year placing it at the head of the pack - amongst a select few excellent coffees. Each year this group of food producers, chefs, food writers and passionate food-lovers "celebrate the kind of food we all want to eat: tasty, authentic and responsibly produced. We grant awards to outstanding American food producers and the farmers who provide their ingredients. We...honor the Good Food Award recipients who push their industries towards craftsmanship and sustainability while enhancing our agricultural landscape and building strong communities." The requirements for coffee include: "exemplary flavor - sweet, clean, well developed body, balanced acidity and phenomenal aromatics. To qualify for entry, roasters and coffee farmers must emphasize fairness and transparency from seed to cup, and be using third party certified organic beans. Once again, coffee is leading the way towards sustainability."
Come by the Studio for a Pour Over or French Press of the Konga. Want to make it at home? We have a limited supply of 12 oz bags of Konga beans.
