Introducing Uganda Budisu

140314coffee Introducing Uganda BudisuWe’re excited to have a coffee from Uganda for the first time ever!

Uganda borders Kenya and Tanzania in East Africa. Instead of the bright winey characteristics of Kenyan coffee, this coffee has a smooth and fruity sweetness, and nice chocolate undertones. This particular lot comes from Eastern Uganda, near the Sipi Falls National Park on the border with Kenya.

Cupping Notes: Sweet and fruity like other East African coffees, but more raisin and chocolate notes.

$ 17.49 / LB.

Oren’s Iced Coffee Recommendations

We’re well into iced coffee season, and we’d like to share some of our recommendations of our freshly roasted coffees for excellent iced coffee brewing this season. They are:

Kenya Peaberry – this coffee is a perfect example of what an excellent Kenya coffee should be. It is full-bodied, with pleasant tartness and a sweet berry fragrance, making it a delicious choice for iced coffee.

Papua New Guinea This truly exceptional coffee tends to be little known. The coffee of Papua New Guinea is a great all around brew, and a refreshing iced coffee. Papua New Guinea’s coffee is incredibly smooth with a subtle acidity.

Oren’s Special Blend is our perennially popular house blend and also makes a fine iced beverage using the Sumatra as support for body, the Colombia regular roast for sweetness and aroma, and the French roasted Colombia for that caramel flavor and big sweet after taste.

La Minita Costa – New Crop Coffee

We’re pleased to be able to offer the latest crop from La Minita Costa Rica! We’ve been buying La Minita coffee since it was first imported in 1988. It has developed into one of the absolute finest coffees in the world in terms of cup quality, preparation, consistency, that all stems from a care for the land and the people.

The La Minita farm is a model for best practices in the industry. Workers are well paid and cared for. Pickers are paid a premium to pick only the ripe cherries. The coffee is meticulously prepared and hand sorted at the farm in their own mill. They control every aspect of the coffee from planting to export-even importing into the U.S.

The coffee is beautifully balanced and has a full aroma. It is full bodied with a sweet finish.

$ 16.99 / LB.

Oren’s Summer Coffee Sampler

130711sampler Orens Summer Coffee SamplerOren’s is pleased to offer our new Coffee Sampler featuring four one-half pound bags of some of our unique and delightful coffees: Colombia Huila, Ethiopian Amaro, Kenya Peaberry, & Oren’s Special Blend.

Our Colombian coffee comes from the Huila region and has the blend of characteristics that are most appealing in Colombia coffee – big sweetness, buttery body, essence of fruit, huge fragrance & aroma and a clean and highly sought-after sweet finish.

The Ethiopian Amaro is a very unusual coffee. This naturally processed coffee produces a full bodied cup, with strong red fruit aromas. It has big blueberry fruitiness similar to the Harrar, but the underlying coffee’s bright, citrusy finish distinguishes this coffee, and makes it recognizably a Yrgacheffe.

Kenya Peaberry is a quintessential Kenya bean with fine cupping qualities. It is grown at high altitudes and possesses intense, concentrated flavors – A perfect example of what an excellent Kenya should be and I am proud to have it on the shelves.

Oren’s Special Blend, our house blend, has a sweetness that is enhanced by its full body. The cup is complex, yet smooth. Intriguing. Full of flavor subtleties such that people come to enjoy this coffee more each time. 1/3 Colombia; 1/3 Sumatra Mandheling; 1/3 French Roasted Colombia.

Oren’s 29 Waverly Place Update

Oren’s Daily Roast had been serving the NYU community for almost 20 years from our tiny store on 31 Waverly Place. As many of you already know, in April we moved into our larger and brand new store right next door to that space.

Customers love our new store at 29 Waverly Place. It is double the size, allowing us to carry a larger selection of beans, merchandise, and edible treats, as well as serve our good customers from NYU and the neighborhood much faster.

Here’s what some of our customers had to say on Twitter:

so much space in here, I just wanna do a lil jig or somethin’! – Ben M.

I felt like I was in a parallel universe today on Waverly @orensdailyroast. #ifearchange – Casey W.

A New Oren’s on the Upper West Side

Customers have been asking Oren to open on the West Side for years, but we were never able to find the right location. Today, we are extremely pleased to announce that Oren’s Daily Roast has found a new home at 2303 Broadway (Broadway between 83rd and 84th streets). West Side customers will no longer have to trek crosstown, or up to Morningside to get the best coffee in town.

“It is a terrible thing to disappoint customers by NOT having enough stores!” says Oren Bloostein, Founder and Roast-master.“ So I am really thrilled to be able to finally open a store in the heart of the West Side to accommodate those customers.” Construction is expected to begin shortly and the store should open in early September.

Oren’s Daily Roast roasts and distributes the world’s finest specialty coffees with nine retail locations, an on-line retail store, a wholesale division, a roasting plant and fulfillment center.

Introducing Ethiopia Amaro Natural

130426coffee Introducing Ethiopia Amaro NaturalEthiopia Amaro Natural is a natural processed coffee from the Yrgacheffe region of Ethiopia. The Amaro mill collects coffee from several small-holding farmers and produces both washed and natural process coffees. The mill is one of the few (if not the only) in Ethiopia owned and operated by a woman—Asnatech Thomas.

This is a very special coffee, and we have a very limited supply of it. The natural process (when the whole cherry is dried on raised beds before the husk is removed) produces a rich, full bodied cup, with strong red fruit aromas. It has big blueberry fruitiness similar to the Harrar, but the underlying bright and citrusy notes distinguish this coffee, and make it recognizably Yrgacheffe.
