Here at Kirk’s Coffee, we care about where our product comes from just as much as we care about its quality and our customers. It is amazing to us how much of the world’s coffees are grown in many of the poorest countries. It is important to us that everyone in our supply chain earns a living wage. We try our very best to make that happen through our coffee purchases. For more detailed information, please read our blog, here.

Brew this coffee in your normal way and serve it with a sweet roll, donut, or coffee cake. Try serving it as an after dinner coffee in the evening. The balance between bitter and sweet is a wonderful thing.
Kenya Kirinyaga Kiangoi Peaberry
Sweet, Nutty, Fruity
This is a wonderful, strait forward coffee. The dry fragrance has a wonderful fruitiness with a spiced characteristic reminiscent of red tropical punch. Hot water brings out the aromas of molasses, pungent and sweet, with hints of citrus and a note of vanilla extract. The first hot sips of the coffee bring dark sugars and maple, sweet citrus fruits like grapefruit and pomegranate. Sweetness runs deep, and flavors of brown sugar and vanilla ride out the long finish. This is a wonderfully bright coffee, perfect for that early morning brew, and is also a great single origin espresso.
Ethiopia Deri Kochowa-Kifle Station
Elegant, Balanced, Sweet
This coffee has strong allusions to spice and florals from the ground coffee to the cup. The dry fragrance has a honeyed sweetness, molasses-ginger coffee, with soft floral hints of rose water. Adding hot water brings up a smell of floral apple and pear, along with a deep sweetness of caramel sauce. It’s a sweet, complex, and nuanced smelling cup. The taste is elegant, balanced and clean. It has a very nice base sweetness to it, with a clarity of taste of simple syrup. The cup finishes with flavors of floral jasmine, white honey, peach, and herbal tea notes.
Sumatra Lintong Sijamapola
Spice, Earthy, Caramel
The dry grounds have an interesting warming spice smell to them--cinnamon and clove. There is a rustic sweetness, syrup and caramelized sugar. The cup is sweet with tropical fruit notes, which are especially highlighted as the cup cools. The coffee is not overly bright. It tastes as one expects a Sumatra coffee to taste, with wonderfully earthy aromas, yet there is a hint of brightness, apple and a touch of citrus. This is a excellent coffee with amazing flavors, due particularly because of the care in the picking and sorting of the cherries. You’re sure to enjoy this example of a Sumatran Batak Lintong coffee.
In this brewing method, fresh, cold, mountain water is used and the coffee steeps for 12 hours. At the end of the brewing session, the coffee and water are separated. The resulting water has become a coffee concentrate.
This method changes the way the water interacts with the coffee and the resulting extraction is different as well. The coffee, when brewed, is much less acidic and therefore highlights different flavors of the coffee. It is often described as, “smoother.”
This is not my normal way of drinking coffee, but it is a favorite of one of the folks around our house. I use this coffee extract when convenience is at a premium, like overnight hiking in the mountains. It is easy to make great coffee, without lugging all the coffee brewing supplies along: 6 oz boiling water and 4 oz coffee concentrate, perfect!
It particularly shines when using it for cooking--imbibing coffee flavor within recipes. Here is our recipe sheet (right click to download):
We are offering 1 Liter for $13 (plus shipping). It is available in either regular or decaffeinated. Please note, that we make it at the time of order, and it takes 24-36 hours to ship because of the preparation time involved.
