Brew, Sip, Sigh … Repeat


Three words sum up the coffee experience: “brew, sip, sigh.” As in: first, brew a cup, take a sip, then you sigh with relief at settling your hands around the day’s first (or five-hundredth) cup of coffee.  We’re coffee-lovers, too, and we know the feeling.

You may remember we created our own coffee-roasting enterprise in the heart of Central Market Westgate. One of our August Foodie Finds are the micro lots of green coffee we are roasting daily at Central Market Westgate. Our Coffee Buyer traveled to coffee countries, such as Mexico and Colombia where he met with local coffee farmers, to find the best green coffee. Once he knew he had what you were looking for, the coffee was bagged exclusively for Central Market, and sent our way.

Here are a few that you must make sure you try, next time you are ready for more than just a cup of Joe:
  • Organic Mexico Custapec - This light bodied coffee delivers soft milk chocolate notes with a strong nutty finish. Its low acidity and delicate flavor make this coffee a daily favorite.
  • Rwanda Organic - This east African coffee has a medium body with gentle flavors of fresh orange zest, plum, and semi sweet chocolate. It finishes clean and crisp and leaves you wanting another sip.
  • Indonesia Sumatra Tempe Organic - A full bodied coffee that is rich in flavors of dark chocolate and molasses. Its fragrant herbal aroma and pronounced earthiness will leave a long lingering fullness in your palate.
  • Colombia Santander Organic - This classic coffee is full bodied and woody with an almond intensity. Its flavor notes of raisin and milk chocolate contribute to make this coffee big, rich, and satisfying.
All four of the coffee's above are $11.99 per pound.  

You'll find new favorites among the barrels and bins of these fresh roasted beans. Need help making a decision? Ask our Coffee Partners for help.

Hi Gabby - currently one of our in-house roasted coffees is an Organic Guatemala Antigua. Hi Pawat - unfortunately we do not sell green beans for roasting.

As far as actual coffee goes: Its really any coffee that you like- single origin medium roast is best, such as our in house roasted organic Colombia Santander, in house roasted Organic Mexico Custapec. Our preferred method is a cold-brew, toddy style coffee. Making iced coffee this way results is a balanced, non-acidic coffee. You can make this using a toddy maker, a french press, or simply a jar or bowl and a fine sieve. I do this at home with a french press a few times a week! To make iced coffee with a french press add 5-6 oz of coarse ground coffee per 24 oz of cool filtered water. Stir to make sure that the grounds are evenly saturated and let the brew steep at room temperature for 12-24 hours. This makes a strong concentrate that can be diluted to taste with filtered water. We suggest a 1:1 - 1:2 ratio of coffee concentrate to water.

Hi Shawn - The barrels at the Westgate store are labeled with roasting dates. In addition to that the Austin store roasts on Tuesday for our other 8 stores and those beans are delivered on Thursday and Friday depending on location. Hope that helps.

Will we be able to know when the beans were roasted from any labeling on the barrels?
