Fresh-Roasted Blends by Heirloom Coffee

"Amorata" Low-Caffeine Coffee

"Amorata" Low-Caffeine Coffee

Quantity:   

"Amorata" is our answer to the demand for Passiona, a popular low-caffeine coffee that was sadly discontinued by the manufacturer. We have two formulae, one to replace Passiona (a chocolatey Vietnamese profile) and the other to have a Central American, more standard flavor profile.

Amorata Vietnamese coffee is blended from our Indochine Estate Bourbon Arabica plus two specially-sourced decaffeinated coffees. To be a "low caffeine coffee" like Passiona, we look for about 30-40 milligrams per cup (as opposed to 120 milligrams in most coffee-shop coffees). This is the caffeine level of oolong or black tea.

Flavor profile: Chocolate tones, strong taste with typical Robusta-style flair expected of Vietnamese coffee. Great with sweetened condensed milk, hot or iced. Brews well in Phin filter, Coffee Press, or drip machine.

Amorata American is blended with Central American coffees, our absolute best Costa Rica beans with the new El Recreo Nicaragua regular and Swiss Water Process decaf coffee.

Flavor profile: Caramel profile, smooth, buttery taste, brown sugar notes, in a darker roast. Broad palate appeal and nice persistence of taste. This crowd pleaser is excellent for homes or offices where people with all different palate preferences will be thrilled to realize they can enjoy the full taste of a coffee that has only 1/3 of the usual caffeine.

Jerome Street Blend

Our Headquarters at 9 Jerome Street

Jerome Street Blend

Quantity:

Jerome Street Blend gets its name from the address of our warehouse, where Len brews up fresh coffee every day for himself, our workers, and any guests who come to visit.

Jerome Street Blend is made from three regional "bests":
- Sumatra Lintong Arabica forms the base with caramel-floral notes
- 20% Dalat Peaberry Robusta reaches the back palate and adds chocolatey smoothness
- 25% Philippines Liberica gives it an incredible aroma

The result is an exceptionally well-rounded coffee with excellent aroma. We find ourselves cradling the cup to relish the "nose" of complex aromas as enjoyable as the full-palate taste. It's also a low acid coffee that is very easy to drink, even black! A great choice for serving to guests. Good hot or iced; stores well in the fridge for turning into iced coffee later.

Paradise Blend: Dalat Arabica, peaberry Robusta and Excelsa

Quantity:

This artful coffee blend has a base of Indochine Estates heirloom Bourbon Arabica beanss. These beans have a delicious buttery caramel taste that is very distinct, and a wonderful 'classic coffee' aroma that fill the kitchen with that scent we love. We then blend in about 25% Dalat Robusta peaberries to give the coffee amazing body and fullness, as well as improving the crema when brewed as espresso. These peaberry beans are the source of much of the chocolate tone you see in Vietnamese coffee. We then add 15% Excelsa (known in Vietnam as "Chari"), a distinct species of coffee that stimulates the middle and sides of the palate, giving the blend a full-bodied balance that is unexcelled.

This traditional blend also brews well in any drip machine, pourover, or French Press.

Organic Shade-Grown Philippines Robusta

Bantai Shade-Grown Robusta

Quantity:

Grown at high altitude under the shade of old-growth jungle, this Robusta will shatter all expectations with its depth and complexity. Growing Robusta this way is almost unheard-of, but the result is extraordinary. Low acidity and no bitterness make it easy to drink, too. Bantai is a coffee company that employs indigenous peoples to harvest the beans from wild trees growing in the national forest preserves of the Philippines, and supports local conservation efforts. This is the same ultra-premium Robusta that the Philippines civets turn into Bantai's kopi luwak. Key notes: Chocolate, vanilla, spice; surprising depth and richness.

El Recreo Nicaraguan Coffee

With a classic Central American profile, this coffee is very fragrant, lightly fruity, and has distinct buttery-sugar scent like a sweet roll. Perfect after dinner or for serving to guests.

Served with ice and creamer, this coffee takes on deep chocolate tones. An excellent candidate for serving Vietnamese style with condensed milk.

"Adrano" Brazilian Volcano Coffee

Adrano is an intense, complex coffee. The unique terroir imparts a unique flavor profile that is an interesting combination of sharp, bright elements with earthy and floral tones and a hint of chocolate. Body is high and smooth, and the appeal to the palate is broad because of the three varieties. In our dark "Deep Forest" roast it is surprising buttery in both flavor and mouthfeel, with hints of caramel and lightly toasty aroma.

Anybody interested in unique single-origin taste profiles can't miss this one-of-a-kind coffee grown by one of Brazil's top award-receiving producers.

Bach Vietnamese Coffee

Bach Coffee: Robusta

Bach Coffee: Robusta

Quantity:   

A pure Robusta, very strong, both in flavor and caffeine. Richly chocolatey in the best Robusta tradition. Excellent with milk and sugar, or sweetened condensed milk, but is also very low in acid so can be drunk black even by individuals who are sensitive to acidity. Robusta is high in body and crema and makes a fabulous espresso alone or paired with your favorite arabica.

We recommend this blend to fans of Trung Nguyen's Creative One or our own Dalat Peaberry Robusta.

Bach Coffee: Arabica

Bach Coffee: Arabica

Sourced from select regions and exceptional beans from Vietnam and Laos, grown from stock first established by French Jesuits in the region called "Indochina" circa 1890-1922. This is a Bourbon Arabica, low in acid, high in body, very smooth and buttery.

We recommend this blend to fans of Trung Nguyen's Creative Three or Five, or our own Dalat Bourbon Arabica.

Bach Coffee: Robusta/Arabica

Bach Coffee: Robusta/Arabica

Flower Oolong Tea

This top-quality Oolong tea is named Flower Oolong because it is composed of tightly hand-rolled tea buds, each containing two or three leaves. When brewed, they unfold, origami-like, into charming tea flowers floating in a lovely jade-green cup. This is 100% oolong tea leaves (no literal "flowers" - it's just a description).

We're offering this as a free sample now because we want to be sure everyone can try it. It's that good! Smooth, free of astringency and very easy to drink, with a full flavor that invites a second cup. Minimally processed and thus "fresher" in taste than Chinese oolong.

This sample contains enough loose-leaf tea to brew two cups. It is absolutely free, but the minimum order size of $10 still applies. Please note: We can only honor one free gift per order.
