Featured Roast: Matchstick’s “Adulina”


Picture 5

We started carrying Matchstick coffee 6 months ago and have been in love with their coffee, packaging (showcasing different art each time) and wonderful customer service ever since. Although there coffee has never disappointed us, I personally have never tasted something as tasty as “Adulina” from Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. I will admit I am in love with most African coffees but I do find sometimes they are to citrusy and acidic for enjoying every morning. Adulina is not one of those coffees, it appears to be roasted slightly longer, has a nice full body and the perfect balanced acidity for enjoying first thing in the morning.

We will be ordering a small amount of this coffee weekly until it is no longer available and I highly recommend you coming in and getting some!

Featured Roast: Kanzu



We’re really excited about the latest beans that have come today from Matchstick Coffee (Vancouver), their “Kanzu” from Rwanda. The Kanzu washing station receives cherries from more than a hundred small hold farmers!!

Once delivered, the cherries are de-pulped using disc pulpers. The coffee is then fermented for up to 24 hours before being washed and then soaked overnight. Initial drying takes places under shade for 2 days before being transfered to raised drying tables under the sun for the remainder of the drying (7-14 days). These long fermentation times, extra soaking and two-phase drying require more work and resources. However, as in most things, the extra effort results in a superior product.

We are selling 340gram bags of Kanzu for $15.00
