Ross Street Guatemala La Bolsa Review

Ross Street Guatemala La Bolsa Review

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!

Ross Street Roasting Co., June 2016

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!
