Now roasting to order – dark, light, decaf, Central American, South American, Brazilian, Ethiopian, whatever you like! If you don’t know what you like, give me an idea of what flavors you enjoy and I’ll make up some options for you to try.

I can handle just a bit more demand, so get in touch. huntgatherbrew@gmail.com

Coming soon: a DECAF! Yes, you read that right, you can now enjoy SolaRoast coffee (what do you think of the trade name?) before bed and/or in your favorite coffee-based cocktails/drinks without having to be up all night.

We’re taste-testing them now to be able to put up an accurate appraisal. All of our decaffeinated coffees will be Swiss Water Process (SWP) so you don’t have to worry about carcinogenic solvents in your after-dinner cup.

For more on the mostly-scary decaffeination methods and relief-inducingly different SWP method, visit http://www.coffeeconfidential.org/health/decaffeination/.


Here are the coffees we’ve got for you right now:

Panama Boquete Camiseta Estate

3 2 1 batches available SOLD OUT roasted 6/22/16. $9 for one batch, $17 for two, plus actual shipping. Email huntgatherbrew@gmail.com to order.

Delicious, easy-to-enjoy, with good acidity, especially for a central American coffee. Please don’t mistake the term “acidity” for bitterness.

Acidity does NOT mean bitterness in coffee any more than it means bitterness in wine. Acidity provides the structure on which the flavors are arranged, and is the essential difference between coffee and brown water.

Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Buufata Konga

2 0 batches available, roasted 6/22/16.$9 for one batch, $17 for two, plus actual shipping. Email huntgatherbrew@gmail.com to order.

The cupping notes below are accurate, but I think they left out CHOCOLATE. At least, that’s what we’re getting with this very young full city roast.

The flavors will develop more fully over the next 2-3 days, and we are excited to see where this goes because it is already one of those coffees that make you consider brewing another pot because it’s over too soon.

In case you’re interested to know a bit more about where your coffee comes from, I’m sharing the postcard that comes with each coffee order from Sweet Maria’s. The postcard changes regularly, and I enjoy reading the stories or informative passages and seeing the pictures they send. I though you might, too. Visit SweetMarias.com if you want to delve further.

Well, that’s it for today, 6/23/16. The weekend forecast promises much sunshine, so I hope to get more roasting done for next week.

6/20 – The forecast is for enough sun to roast some more tomorrow and probably Wednesday, too, so there will be more caffeine very soon!

Roasted Coffee Beans - Guatemala Antigua Pulcal Inteligente

Guatemala Antigua Pulcal Inteligente

Our experience: We’ve drunk gallons of this coffee. We bought a 20 pound bag of green beans and this is just about the last of it. This coffee loves simple, convenient brewing methods. In a drip coffee maker, it a can’t-miss bean. It can take a small amount of milk or cream, but also shines when drunk black.

Like most coffees, the flavors blossom when slightly cooled. If you let it go all the way to room temperature, do not throw it away – it’s a whole new level of amazing when fully cooled. I would not hesitate to serve this to anyone, even those who profess to “hate coffee.” Who knows, they might be surprised.

Email us at huntgatherbrew@gmail if you want some – first come first served. This is freshly roasted, so it will be drinkable starting 48-72 hours from now and continue to improve for several days beyond that. We often have three or four coffees roasted at once, so we don’t finish them for two weeks or more and they are still terrific. Just don’t grind it all right away!

The forecast is sunny for the next couple days, so expect more and different coffees to come available soon.

    Over the past 5-6 years, I have been obsessed with finding THE perfect cup of coffee. I’ve purchased all the best brewing devices, bought all the beans, visited every hipster coffee house I could find, especially when traveling, and have even gone so far as to roast my own beans.

    The wizardry that Winslow puts into his beans is nothing short of astounding, and I can confidently say, the search is over… he makes that PERFECT cup of coffee.

    Plus, you get the added benefit of being the coolest kid on your block – I mean who else has farm-to-cup, single-origin, fair trade, gluten free, SOLAR ROASTED coffee beans hand crafted in small batches with love, then sprinkled with Bald Eagle tears and delivered straight to your door?

    Uh, well this guy does, and for an EXTREMELY fair price, you can too.

    -Dave

    P.S. Do yourself a favor and get some – you won’t regret it.

    P.P.S. Do me a favor and don’t get some… there is only so much Winslow and sun to go around.

    • Hunt Gather Brew

      WOW, thank you, Dave. The real short supply is Eagle tears, but we don’t really talk about that part.

      Seriously, though, I am humbled by your praise. It feels amazing to do something from the heart that then brings happiness to someone else.

      I’m glad that you’re enjoying the coffee.

    I’m not great at talking about why I love a particular glass of wine or cup of coffee, but I love that moment when I taste something and the unexpected happens: hm, what’s different here? And also, may I have more, please?

    I’ll second everything that The Dave says below about Winslow’s talent, process, and commitment, and I hope to have the opportunity to buy from him again soon. Please let us know when the next batch is ready, Winslow!

    -Mo

    • Thanks, Mo! I just read your message to Winslow and he said he’ll be roasting more soon — we’ll let you know!
