I have a subscription (mail-order) with Blue Star Coffee who are located in the small town of Twisp in Washington State. I have them send me a couple of bags of their SuperNova Decaffeinated blend. Also order on a rotating basis the Expresso Blend, Highway 20 blend, and Morning Roast blend. We buy whole bean and grind our own and use different methods to brew. Coffee machine if having people over, individual cups using a pour over method, and also use an Aero Press for expresso shots.
Coffee is good, good in the morning, good in the afternoon, good in the evening, and good at night. ......and of course a spot of tea now and then.
.... I choose Blue Star Coffee because the taste in all their blends is exceptional and they are a small business. There consistency to produce a great testing coffee keeps me a customer. I believe finding a good roaster is the key to enjoying a great cup of coffee day in and day out.
From their website: Blue Star Coffee Roasters is a wholesale producer of small batch, award winning, artisan roasted coffee.
Our approach to coffee is simple. Quality in the cup is our driving principle.
We source exceptional coffee beans from different continents that are carefully chosen for their flavor, of course, but also for their technical qualities of bean size, hardness, and processing techniques that inform our blending and roasting decisions. We roast on a modified and updated 1963 Probat 22 kilo machine. Roasting is carefully specific to the blend, to both maximize and harmonize the coffee flavors. We roast often to ensure freshness, and package it promptly to preserve those delicate and delicious flavors. This is our part of the quality arc, and we are committed to doing it the very best that we can.
