About Organic Gemini
About a year and a half ago, my doctor diagnosed me with ovarian cancer and told me that I would need to have one of my ovaries removed. After visiting the best specialists in New York, each of them confirmed that initial diagnosis. The most devastating part was that I would unlikely be able to have children.

My partner, George, began to research alternative treatments, thinking that surgery might not be the only option. He found a study where women in similar situations were using alternative treatments and a raw food diet to find healing. Neither of us was particularly conscious of our diets and we were certainly skeptical of such a simple solution to a problem as profound as cancer. Read More

Coffee Spotlight: Lavazza Coffee – The Real Italian Espresso



¡Tierra! is a coffee from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms that combines

– High quality of the product
– Respect for the environment
– Social equity

Its name comes from Lavazza’s social responsibility project, born in 2002, to improve the social and environmental conditions and the production techniques of the small communities of coffee growers.

This project is realised by the Giuseppe and Pericle Lavazza Foundation, a charitable non-profit organisation that since its establishment has promoted and supported 35 projects.







With a fine balance of floral and fruity notes

A premium selection of 100% Arabica beans from Central and South America, expertly crafted to create a well-balanced and full-bodied coffee. Savour it mindfully to capture its fruity aroma with floral notes and the distinctive finish of bittersweet dark chocolate.







With an intense taste and chocolatey notes

For this bold and velvety coffee, Lavazza’s expertise in selecting the best origins has carefully blended the most aromatic Arabica coffees from Brazil and the finest Robusta coffees from South East Asia. It is roasted slightly longer to accentuate its intense aroma of dried fruits, with enveloping notes of bitter cocoa and nuts.



About the company:

From the late 1800s to today, we have been committed to achieving excellence in the production of coffee. We can count on solid expereince, treasured over the course of more than a century in business.

Coffee Spotlight: Modern Times Kenya Nyeri Othaya Peaberry

Our first single origin coffee release! This gorgeous Kenyan coffee is loaded with rich winey notes, citrus zest, and spice. It’s a beautiful coffee that really highlights what makes Kenyan coffee so famous. Recommended preparation method: pour over or espresso. Note: coffee may take 7-10 days to ship to ensure freshness.


About the Company
We focus (non-monogamously) on aroma-driven, complex, flavorful, sessionish beers. We often brew hybrid styles, combining the features we like from established categories to create new, Island-Of-Doctor-Moreau-style mash-ups.

Fortunate Islands combines the mildly nutty malt body of a wheat beer with the intensely bright, citrusy hoppiness of a righteous IPA. Black House has the full-body, robust chocolatey flavor, and intense coffee aroma of its imperial counterparts, but packed into a 5.8% ABV package. Blazing World combines the subtly fruity qualities of a dry amber ale with the enormous hop-profile of an über-dank double IPA. Read More

Coffee Spotlight: Intelligentsia Honey Badger Espresso


Our most popular seasonal espresso, named for Africa’s most ferocious and honey-loving mustelid, returns to the lineup for its fifth iteration. Each season, we build Honey Badger around one of our favorite Kenyan coffees; you’d really be missing something special not to take this syrupy sweet and viciously flavorful espresso for a spin in your portafilter.









About the company:
In October of 1995 Doug Zell and Emily Mange left San Francisco to open an in-store coffee roaster-retailer on Broadway Avenue on the north side of Chicago. At that time they were simply hoping to bring great, fresh-roasted coffee to their own coffeebar with the help of a charming, but perhaps too often erratic 12-kilo roaster. Since then Intelligentsia has evolved considerably. Read More

Coffee Spotlight: Stumptown Coffee Roasters – COLOMBIA SAN ISIDRO



We do not add any flavors or additives to our coffee beans. Our coffee is just coffee.


ALIRIO AGUILERA OSPINA managed to make a number of updates on his farm and processing this year despite a medical setback. He renovated a lot of his Caturra plants to ensure more vigorous plants. He also removed his demucilager, and switched to strictly depulping his cherry per our suggestion. He ferments his coffee for about 24 hours and soaks it for 12 hours. He completed building his raised parabolic drying beds and used them successfully to dry this lot.

Coffee Spotlight: Death Wish Barrel Premium Aged Coffee





Every Monday morning we have meetings here at Death Wish Coffee to discuss how we can push the extreme coffee envelope a bit. John, Teah, Kane, Eric and I (Mike) sit together at our coffee table and share ideas and strategies that we try to implement in the future. Some ideas get tested and thrown out but some turn out way better than we could have imagined. Barrel Coffee is a project that has achieved amazing results. We strive to be extraordinary and provide our customers with an unforgettable & enjoyable experience.

After researching and testing various methods, we’ve perfected a procedure that allows for the infusion of fine spirits directly into premium green coffee beans. After aging our green coffee beans in freshly poured oak barrels we were able to draw out much of the spirits flavor and through a slow roasting process, those unique liquor flavors remained. What we achieved was a well-balanced and exceptional cup of coffee. The entire process takes over 45 days and we are only able to do about 700 packages each time. However, the result is Perfection! Our Barrel Coffee is one of a kind.






About the Company
Here is how Death Wish Coffee got started:

After owning and running a coffee shop for the past 5 years in up-state NY a problem surfaced, all of the premium dark roast coffee on the market was not as caffeinated as the lighter roasts.

Customers would come in and say: “Give me a cup of your strongest coffee.”

and I would reply: “We serve nothing but the best coffee here, but our strongest tasting coffee is not our most caffeinated coffee”.

A puzzled look would usually follow and I would try to give an explanation. Read More

Drink Spotlight: Outpost Cold Brew Coffee


Our inspiration came from interacting with people we served coffee to in Los Angeles and our desire to curate an exceptional coffee experience for them and anyone who may stumble upon us. Even if someone doesn’t like coffee, our goal would be for them to say something like “I don’t like coffee, but what they’re doing is pretty neat.”

From our experience more people are making coffee at home using manual brew methods, and they are curious about different ways of brewing. One trend that we’ve seen is people making good coffee on the go, at their desk or while traveling. That’s why we chose to do the Aeropress for one of our brew guides. It’s so simple to make it on the go and it doesn’t break.

We’ve all become the designated “coffee maker” in our group of friends and it’s hard to get anyone else to learn to do it. We developed a brew guide because we wanted something to give to someone without any direction and have them make a tasty coffee on the first go. We’ve found that it’s pretty uplifting and fulfilling for a newbie to make their first cup of coffee for someone else. It’s about lowering that friction and creating an opportunity for them to get started.





During the sweaty months of summer 2011 when Handsome Coffee launched their business, David Lopez, Tiffany Lopez, and Justin Carleton became friends over packing coffee and barista training. If you bought a bag of coffee during Handsome’s infancy, chances are Justin, David, or Tiffany packed it.

Tony Nessan and David got to know each other at Burning Man 2010. Tony spent five years slanging stocks and bonds until realizing the industry is as soul sucking as those cups of Starbucks coffee he was drinking down were, and when he left his job, he found the light.

Justin Carleton is the youngest member of the Outpost team, he just became legal drinking age. When he’s not working on coffee you can find him behind the counter at EggSlut in LA’s Grand Central Market. David and Tiffany spent the majority of their time at Handsome Coffee trying to convince their bosses, Michael, Tyler and Christopher, that they really were brother and sister and not married as they suspected.

We’ve been thinking about starting a coffee project of our own, so we set up weekly meetings to move forward without any expectations. The only purpose was to start the process and see where it goes. We gave it a name – Outpost.
