Today marks the 10 year anniversary of One Village Coffee!
10 years ago One Village Coffee was founded with the bright ambition to emulate and give back to the coffee growing Villages the founders had visited.
A Village has certainly been created and you are a part of it!
We are going to celebrate all year long-starting with some fun, raw, and compelling tales from the early days (#10years10memories). And those cupcakes? They are iced with frosting made with our Nordico! We will share the coffee frosting recipe with all of you soon.
Have any One Village Coffee memories to share? They could be meeting Steve the owner at Whole Foods or just the first time you tried a cup at home! We want to know what got you here to our Village. 😊💓🎂🎂☕
Perfect coffee world: You order your coffee online on our website. You read each of the in depth descriptions and carefully select the one with the tasting notes that sound the most you. Citrus? Dark chocolate? Maybe Cinnamon?
Then you place that bag in your online shopping cart, we roast it special for you that day, and presto! In 2 days you have the freshest coffee around.
Real coffee world: You wake up on Sunday morning and realize you are out of coffee. You add it to your @wholefoods shopping list so this nightmare does not repeat itself on Monday morning. We have been there too. 😊
This is why we know it is so important that you have access to One Village Coffee and other specialty coffees on our website and at your local grocery store. You know we want you to have the freshest cup possible. Ordering online and getting a burr grinder to freshly grind before brewing is going to help the most with that. But we also know life happens and we ourselves pick up a bag of coffee at the grocery store when we are in the same coffee pinch.
How do you buy your coffee? Have you tried shopping online in our shop? Do you notice the freshness?
Share your coffee experience with us! It helps us get to know you and help even more.
We are getting a lot of spice when we sip our new Koban (link in bio) from Papa New Guinea. It is the type of coffee that compliments a savory egg sandwich breakfast perfectly and holds up in milk & sugar.
We want to introduce you not only to the fact that we have a new coffee, but why that coffee is different from all the others.
The notes we taste are always listed on the back of the bag and on our website (btw: cinnamon, apricot, and orange are hanging out in this coffee). But beyond that, we want to let you know what foods pair well with it, if we think it is a good fit for milk & sugar, and maybe even a little background on where the coffee came from so you can more naturally come to these coffee conclusions on your own.
We know you already have favorite foods and ways to drink your coffee...all part of your personal coffee ritual! What are they? Artist and cheerios? Villager and almond milk yogurt? Please share-we are getting hungry! 😊🍳🍳☕
The words we at One Village Coffee use to describe our personal coffee ritual make our coffee experience sound a lot more like a romantic art form and a lot less like a functional beverage.
We get poetic. We story tell. We notice and appreciate the beauty of both the brewing ritual and the tasting experience.
For us, coffee is not just a fix or something hot to hold in your hand. It is a source of morning inspiration. We look at our pour over, we smell the aromas, we try and discover as much as we can from those sips (hints of chocolate, the fruity taste of a natural processed coffee, the distinct Earthiness from Asia/Pacific beans). We love experiencing coffee this way. We love having a deep connection to each cup and starting every day with an emotionally packed and always delicious first sip.
Is this how your enjoy coffee? Do you have a ritual? Do you want to create a ritual for yourself? We want all of you to have the chance to experience coffee this way.
Whether you have a tea pot on the stove, an electric kettle, or are already the proud owner of one of those whimsically looking gooseneck kettles pictured here, you have to get the water heating for the coffee making.
Once you have hot water, you are just 4 minutes away from that morning cup. But there are a lot of different ways to boil water. Guess what? However you currently heat up water in your kitchen is exactly how you heat up water for coffee, gooseneck kettle or not!
The cool looking gear is supposed to make life easier. Those neat goose necks make pouring simpler...but hey they don't make anything easier if you don't have one 😊. How are all of you heating up water for your coffee this morning? Has the water heating stopped you from trying that French Press tucked away in your kitchen instead of the Keurig? We can help with all the water heating things. 😊💓☕
Who else is reaching for their favorite coffee mug in their kitchen cabinet this morning?
Brewing coffee at home before work is what Happy Friday dreams are made of! Maybe you work from home and it is part of your at home office routine. Maybe you just realized how much cheaper and faster it is to make coffee at home than buy it out and about (4 minutes and $0.55/cup, wowza!). Who here is brewing at home this morning? If not, what stops you? We want to help. Lot's of brew tips to come! 🤓💓☕ #happyfriday #friyay #goodmorning #coffeeaddixt #specialtycoffee #coffeelover #coffeebreak #coffeegram
Who can guess how many coffee beans are in that cup?
No need! That is what the trusty scale is for.
That is exactly 30 grams of coffee-the perfect amount for 2 morning cups. Pressing the power button on a scale, setting a cup on it, zeroing it out, and waiting until the screen says "30 grams" is the very first thing (at least one of the first 5 things) many of us at One Village Coffee do in the morning.
We are only human, and human without coffee first the in the morning. The scale ensures you are using the exact amount of beans and water you want to use so the coffee isn't "a little strong" one day and "a little weak" the next. Eyeballing it works, but for us making a good cup of coffee whilst groggily eyeballing it is actually a lot harder.
Do all of you use scales? How did the scale change your coffee journey? If not, what stops you from making the switch?
We are ready to do what we can to get all of you making coffee with a scale ready 😊🤓🍵 #jenningsscale #harioscale #coffeegram #coffeelover #coffeeaddict #goodmorning #coffee #wholebean #specialtycoffee #coffeebreak
Some new single origins just hit the online shop this week! The Pacaybamba from #Peru and the Koban from #PapuaNewGuinea.
New coffees mean a lot to us as a specialty roaster. The coffee that sits in our pantries at home is rarely the same one all year long.
We know how different coffees taste from one another so many of us who work here are always picking up a bag of the new stuff to brew up at home. Tasting and finding what we like and don't like has become a big part of our personal coffee journeys.
Do all of you try different coffees or do you have a favorite you stock up on? What is that favorite? We love learning about your coffee journey.
