"After searching the globe for the most distinct, amazing coffees we have narrowed our focus to our four favorite origins of Ethiopia, Kenya, Colombia and Guatemala. Traveling to these origins we seek out coffees that are sweet, clean and complex. Integrity and care are put into every step along the way, from cherry to cup. Our mission as a small batch roaster is to provide you with seasonal, delicious coffees that will tickle your palate and excite your mind." - Case Coffee Roasters
When you think of coffee producing countries you don’t often think about the country of Malawi. In fact, many people have never tasted coffee from Malawi. It is only until recently that roasters have been able to purchase high quality green coffee from this African country. Although Malawi has been producing coffee since the 1800’s, it is only now that we have seen this country be highlighted in the craft coffee industry. My Coffee Pub is thrilled to introduce this new Malawi Misuku from Tinker Coffee Co. It is vibrant, unique and sweet in the cup. You are gonna love it.
We are excited to showcase Brandywine Coffee Roasters this month, and highlight their Gustavo de Jesus Rivera coffee from El Retiro farm, in Colombia. This coffee is special. It is SUPER high altitude and because of the temperature of the coffee, the washing process is VERY unique. Check out the details below.

A few months ago I put one of my favorite new roasters, Ross Street Roasting Co. from the small town of Tama, Iowa, in touch with the guys at My Coffee Pub. They hit it off and decided to use Ross Street for their June selection and they also surprised me by asking me to curate the selection! I’ve done this in the past with another subscription service and it’s something I enjoy doing, but it’s also a lot of pressure because I want my clients to love the coffee as much as I do. In the complex world of flavor biochemistry there are no guarantees and Ross Street’s Brian Gumm made it extra tough on me by sending four really great coffees to have to pick from!
This month we are excited to be working with Ross Street Roasting Co. from Tama & Toledo, Iowa. We heard about these guys from our close friend and fellow coffee blogger Steve, who blogs regularly on his site, KC Coffee Geek. Steve recommended we check out Ross Street and so we thought we would also let him recommend the coffee that we offered our subscribers as well. Steve was kind enough to oblige and even introduce our roaster this month on the blog. Take it away Steve!
