A new month, a new bar line-up! Every month, we switch up what we’re serving on our Silverton pourover brewers. This month, we’re featuring three excellent South American coffees that showcase the best results of a range of flavors and processing methods.


Colombia San Roque – A low-key daily favorite. Colombian coffees are known for being smooth and balanced and this fully washed, sun-dried lot does not disappoint.

Colombia San Roque Reserve – Another great brew from the Ascociacion San Roque. This small lot represents the very best harvest this year, and kicks the game up a notch with poppin’ notes like hibiscus and kiwi.

Ironman III Geisha – Sometimes you gotta spring for the geisha. This one is naturally processed and grows at a higher altitude (half of the La Aurora coffee farm is a preserved highland rainforest). The processing lends red fruit notes like pomegranate and raspberry, while the altitude contributes to the floral notes like jasmine.

If you don’t live near a cafe, you can still taste what we’re pouring this month! Get a pack with bags of all 3 brews, or a sampler tube set.



  1. Please tell Anna and her photographer that I think the photo of her hair could win a contest, maybe someone knows about photo contests and could submit it with permission.

  2. Also, could you sometime list your other affiliated sites (even if it is an older site as a resource, like a Martha Stewart book you keep on a shelf), for example is there a slightly older event planning site that is affiliated officially? I don’t want to peruse anything you haven’t authorized. Thanks.

    1. The coffee world is vast, and there are a lot of opinions and techniques! Don’t write off any resources right away – even the professionals can get it wrong when it comes to recommending coffees and brewing for your personal tastes and preferences. This blog is our main resource/archive, or you can search Google for more coffee articles by our co-founder, Todd Carmichael.

  3. Real quick, can I just put it into the universe and more specifically the Philly-verse, that I have this strange feeling that one of my exes, sold his property in Abington, PA, told the world he is moving to Chicago and now quite possibly might actually be in Philadelphia (a little too often for my taste, no offense). Dear ex, I know you love the same coffee as me, but, could you please give me some space so that I can enjoy it when and where I like/love. My concern is that your current flame might not want any other past embers even burning near your direction, so help a girl (wife, mother) out and when you see me coming please follow the old rules of chivalry and have respect for the women who came first, before, who loved you before the rest of the world did and besides, I kind of am more of the quintessential Philly kid (right?) and I have been drinking coffee with my (real) Italian grandparents in the most beautiful demitasse cup/saucer (which now my child uses) since one of my first memories. No one can take away my wonderful memories of you, please do not take my favorite coffee away from me. (Oh, by the way, I skipped the annual American Bar Association meeting in Chicago last summer out of respect for you and yours and I gave up possibly hearing a speech by a tremendous female lawyer. You know I have always made your privacy a priority {aside from this little note}, please don’t blame me for your decision to be [working?] in Philadelphia. Yikes!
