What a humbling, educational, and foundational experience for our company. Several relationships were established through farmers and producers all doing great things in specialty coffee.
Among the most memorable and impactful from El Salvador, Finca Loma La Gloria, a farm and mill located literally on the side of an inactive volcano. Owned and operated by Anny Ruth. Transparency and traceability come to mind when thinking of her operation. B3 has reserved 5 of only 20 bags from her micro natural processed Yellow Bourbon lot.
In Costa Rica, Nella and her father Carlos have farmed and wet milled some top notch crops this year. They also lead a new project in their tiny community, a unique collaboration of several micro lot farmers just getting into specialty grade. Its an amazing experience to see the progress being made. Nella's efforts paid off on the table as cupping in country proved promising results.
Coffee's from both of these and several other producers should be here late spring, just in time to compliment a grand opening for Building3 Coffee. Not a bad way to open our doors!
off on a sourcing trip! February 14, 2016 05:41We are so excited to be furthering our quality. Currently on our first of many sourcing trips to buy great coffees. Unfortunately online coffee orders will be down until we return in a few days. If you are local you can always pick some up at Peak Place Coffeehouse or Wild Goose Meeting House. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Periscope to see what we are doing on the farms. Thank you so much for your continued support. See you soon!
B3 Current happenings November 07, 2015 05:19Support has been overwhelming thanks to some special coffee friends around town, Colorado Springs ROCKS! Here is the latest; B3 has officially signed a lease in the Lincoln Elementary School conversion for a public market (off Cascade & south of Fillmore), hopefully opening our doors in early Spring. We will roast in house and offer a full service of fresh-from-the-farm crop coffees as well as delicious local baked goods. Collaboration in this community is resulting in some amazing momentum, we can't wait to serve this town. Until then, we've been roasting in a temporary location for places like Peak Place Coffeehouse who offers our coffees on pour over and Single Origin Espresso. Keep an eye out around town for more offerings in awesome local establishments, we can't wait to reveal the next host.

Help us make room! May 12, 2015 03:24
Seasons are changing and so is our coffee. We need help transitioning some that have had a great run, for new ones that want a chance. Before we can offer different exiting origins, we will be discounting some great selections until they are gone.
Sidamo from Ethiopia was such a great choice as an un-washed coffee, every time I brew it I am overwhelmed with deep floral and fruit notes, especially blueberry. Very mild acidity and a clean finish. We have only a couple of weeks left before we can showcase a new favorite, another great Ethiopia, Lekempta. You may have been lucky enough to take a sneak peak at this coffee as we bagged a few as a result of overage from Gandolfo Blend Espresso.
Sumatra, typically very dark roasted, we took a different approach. Not light by any means but a good middle of the road roast gave us some great reviews. Still maintaining depth, it's a down-to-earth Fair Trade Organic that shows how great Sumatran coffees can be.
Take advantage of discounts until both of these coffees are gone, on- line and in the shop.
