Fresh-Roasted Blends by Heirloom Coffee, LLC

Jump Start Coffee

Buon Me Thuot Special

Jump Start Coffee


(Limit one free gift per order)

Just in time for the unwelcome return of the school-day alarm clock, we have created a perfect morning blend for you!

Most "breakfast blend" coffees have a normal amount of caffeine, and try to wake you up with flavor alone. That's nice, but let's be honest: we need a little extra kick in the morning sometimes.

Our new Jump Start coffee contains a high percentage of organic, shade-grown Philippines Robusta peaberries. Robusta is naturally higher in caffeine than Arabica, meaning a cup of this coffee contains 20% more caffeine than a cup of straight Arabica coffee, without any artificial additives.

To give you that extra flavor punch we need in the mornings, when our taste buds are still sleepy, the rest of the blend consists of pleasantly sharp, aromatic Sumatra Lintong Arabica and the deep mineral volcanic soil profile of Brazil Santa Izabel Microlot Arabica coffee.

This sample is absolutely free, but the minimum order size of $10 still applies. Please note: We can only honor one free gift per order.

Jerome Street Blend

Our Headquarters at 9 Jerome Street

Jerome Street Blend


(Limit one free gift per order)

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. We're normally very eclectic in our tastes, but Len found himself brewing the same blend over and over again, and serving it to rave reviews... so we decided to make this "house blend" fresh roasted coffee available to everyone!

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
- 15% 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.

This sample is absolutely free, but the minimum order size of $10 still applies. Please note: We can only honor one free gift per order.

Paradise Blend: Dalat Arabica, peaberry Robusta and Excelsa


(Limit one free gift per order)

This artful coffee blend has a base of Vietnamese Bourbon Arabica beans, a special heirloom species of Arabica that has been pampered on their family estate farms in Dalat for multiple generations. 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. They are gorgeous beans, round and "robust" and full of flavor. 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. Buon Me Thuot region Excelsa is one of the trademark coffees used in traditional Vietnamese blends enjoyed as Café Sua Da.

This traditional blend also brews well in any drip machine, pourover, or French Press, and makes an excellent espresso, with a perfect ratio of brightness, sharp initial impression, full body, and strong taste retention. If intended as espresso, please choose whole bean and grind to your preference. Key notes: Caramel, butter, milk chocolate, "classic coffee" aroma.

Vietnamese Dalat Highland Peaberry Robusta

High altitude peaberry Robusta

Dalat Highland Peaberry Robusta

(Limit one free gift per order)   

Vietnamese Robusta from the Dalat Highlands is the secret ingredient in Italian espresso. Its lush body, chocolatey taste, and excellent aftertaste are a product of the rich soil in Vietnam, and the fact that they are able to sun-dry the coffee cherries, which develops Robusta's natural sweetness. This peaberry Robusta is almost entirely peaberries, extremely high-quality and hand graded, for the most complex and flavorful brew.

Why Robusta? People around the world, are divided between "front palate" people and "back palate" people. We find that people who respond well to Vietnamese coffees in general tend to be "back palate" people, and Robusta excites primarily the back of the palate. In particular, Vietnamese high-altitude Robusta has developed indigenously to be almost its own subspecies, and the gourmet Robusta from this region is exceptionally delicious.

What's a peaberry? The coffee bean is the seed of the coffee fruit, which is also called a "cherry." Normally, each cherry contains two seeds, which is why coffee beans are rounded on one side and flat on the other (flat from being pressed together). However, between 5% and 15% of the crop will contain only one seed inside a smaller cherry. The coffee bean within is round, like a pea. These peaberries used to be discarded, until someone realized that the peaberries have a more intense and complex flavor, with a characteristic bite. The Vietnamese Highlands region is particularly intriguing for its peaberries, which feature in most of its famous local coffees.

"Adrano" Brazilian Volcano Coffee

Adrano Brazilian coffee

"Adrano" Brazilian Volcano Coffee


(Limit one free gift per order)

There is no other terroir in the world similar to the unique microclimate of Pocos de Caldas, which is angled perfectly toward the sun. Pocos de Caldas receives sharply divided day and night periods that begin with early morning sun full-on until 4 pm, when the sun suddenly is cut off by passing across the rim of the crate at the top of the mountain, triggering a burst of energy (sugar) conversion into flavor in the beans. The soil is an enriched combination of volcanic minerals and rainforest soil, giving the coffee an abundace of nutrition and minerals. The coffees consist of a variety of unusual Arabica sub-types, including golden-fruited Catuai. It is sustainably grown, UTZ Certified, and direct-trade.

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. Surprising buttery in both flavor and mouthfeel, with hints of caramel.

Tea

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.

Artichoke Tea

Delicious, caffeine-free Artichoke tea is made from the whole Artichoke plant, although brands will differ in the percentage of flower, stem and leaf. This traditional herbal tea is a Vietnamese favorite, and has a smooth and naturally sweet flavor, rich mouthfeel, and surprising aroma reminiscent of vanilla or milk chocolate. It requires no sweetener, and it is used as a healthful drink in southeast Asia, where it is believed to promote liver functioning via a mild detox and slight diuretic effect, and lower LDL cholesterol levels.

This sample is of Hung Phat brand Artichoke tea, because its teabag packaging is better suited for giving away as samples; however, the difference between the brands is extremely subtle, so if you like this, feel free to try the Tam Chau next time if you want the value-sized bag. 2 teabags wrapped individually in printed paper pouches, with printed informational insert.

This sample is absolutely free, but the minimum order size of $10 still applies. Please note: We can only honor one free gift per order.
