InstaMeet For a Cause

Newsletter Instameet

 

Temple loves Instagram. On December 20th, we’re hosting an Instameet for a Cause. The idea is simple: local Instagrammers (and regular folk, too!) will meet at our 1010 9th St. retail location, each bringing a gift for donation to the Sacramento Children’s home. From there, attendees will talk photography, take photos, drink coffee, and explore downtown Sacramento. It’s a great way to put a face to those inspiring Instagram accounts you’ve been following and meet new people in our community.
 
BONUS: All gift donating participants will receive 5 EXTRA ENTRIES in our current Holiday Giveaway Contest, the one where we’re giving away a $300 Techniworm MoccaMaster just by joining our newsletter. Not into Instagram? You can still donate, and still receive your extra entries between 10am-noon. Winners will be notified by e-mail, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter by visiting the templecoffee.com homepage.
 

Top 30 Coffees of 2014

DSC08765-Edit
After being awarded the #1 Coffee of 2013 by CoffeeReview last year, we’re pleased to announce that TWO of our coffees made this year’s list. First, our Kenya Makwa AB came in at No. 19 with all its orange and dark chocolate goodness. And who can forget our Panama Los Lajones Bambu Geisha and its distinct stone fruit intensity and soft, silky body? This one ranked No. 5 in the world.

 
Of course, coffees are seasonal and most that made the list are long gone. But if you’re looking for similar offerings, check out our Panama La Esmeralda Geishaand Kenya Gachika AA and decide for yourself if these will make the list next year!

Day 5, Thursday, July 31
Went to visit Ismael of Capim Bronco and Sao Siilvestre, “large” farms in Cerrado.  These two farms are close to the highest elevation, if not the highest elevation in Cerrado at 1200-1300masl.  Ismael started a micro lot project last year, and is continuing this year with good success.

Farm to Cup: Brazil (Part Two)

Day 3, Tuesday, July 29

 

It was cold last night. Didn’t sleep very well, especially with the packs of barking dogs outside. Woke up this morning at 8am, took a shower, and lost power halfway through. That’s the way to wake up: ice cold shower… After a breakfast of bread, cheese, ham and eggs, we’re moving to visit Sergio at Serra Do Bone, and the owner of the Hotels farm.

Ethiopia Boke Washed Grade 1

Temple Coffee Ethiopia Boke Washed 95 points

 

We’re thrilled to announce our Ethiopia Boke Washed Grade 1 has received a 95 point review on CoffeeReview.com!

 

 

“Delicate but rich; fine, layered complexity. Lilac, honey, apricot, raspberry, sandalwood, much more in aroma and cup. Gently bright, lively, almost effervescent acidity; lightly syrupy, buoyant mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates, though the floral note in particular persists in a long, resonant finish.”
