New Arrivals; posted 01-09-20: We have two new coffees this month. An organic medium roasted Costa Rican Don Claudio from the west valley region. This coffee has replaced the Brazilian Cerrado, which then also means we have introduced a new version of our St. Michaels Blend. V06 of the St Michaels Blend is a batch roasted blend of Costa Rican Don Claudio and Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, roasted darker than either done as single origin offerings. The tags for both are alongside.
Maui & Christmas blend; posted 12-06-19: We received our shipment of coffee from Hawaii late yesterday afternoon. I stayed late and roasted several batches of both the Maui Yellow Caturra and the Christmas Blend. Come and get it!
News on our Christmas Blend; posted 11-20-19: As we all know coffee is a farm crop (see post below dated 12-17-18) and is subject to seasonal availability, as well as other more serious issues. This year and last year we have had availability issues with the coffees that comprise this fantastic blend. This year the farm that grows the Maui Yellow Caturra coffee decided not to ship any coffee to their normal traders “on the mainland”, so we developed a direct trade relationship with the farm. Everything was going fine, but without warning they ran out of coffee from the 2018 harvest in September. We ran out of their coffee last month.
The coffee harvest on Hawaii starts in August of the year and they will not start shipping coffee until the 1st of December. This means we should be able to start roasting Christmas Blend sometime the second week in December. This is certainly not the best-case scenario, but it will at least be available for Christmas.

BHC coffee now avialble in Easton, posted 10-05-19: A photo of our first delivery, of what we are sure will be many, to Turnbridge Talbot. We are extremely excited to say that our coffee is once again available in Easton. Thanks to chef and owner Steve Konopelski for truly understanding what it means to “drink like a local”.
New glassware; posted 06-16-19:Have a look at our new 4oz taster/ shot glass. Perfect for getting a quick taste of one of our brewed coffees, measuring shots of espresso, pouring your favorite adult elixir or just a perfect souvenir.
Caskia is back: posted 05-20-19: At least back for the summer months, a refreshing Cascara Infused sparkling beverage. This year we will be featuring a special price on four packs. Check it out!
New arrival; Posted 05-08-19: Swiss water decaffeinated Fairtrade Organic Mexican just added to the mix.
BHC, out & about; posted 4-12-19: The new St Michaels Farmers Market Season begins this weekend. You will find our coffee there as well as the Classic Motor Museum every Saturday until Thanksgiving.
Another great returns; posted 04-02-19: Haitian Blue Mountain is back in stock. We have never been quite sure what to call our two high-end coffees – Premium, Premier, BHC Select, BHC Reserve or what – special seems to describe them best. We were sorry to be out of these two gems through the winter months, but it reminds us that coffee is a farm crop and sometimes susceptible to season availability.
New arrival; posted 03-18-19: A new Honduran Fairtrade Organic offering is just now in the rotation. It replaces our Costa Rican Tarrazu (for now). Not to worry you Rican lovers, it will return.
Introducing On-line rewards; Posted 03-06-19: We love repeat customers and have finally found a rewards platform for our on-line customers that is similar to the one we offer in a brick & mortar store. It's simple - buy coffee, earn points, get discounts.
STM re-formulated, posted 02-15-19;We are not quite sure how often the multi- national tech giants re-brand their product by giving it an up-grade and a new version number, but we do our St Michaels Blend every year or so. So it's on to version five.
New Arrival, Posted 02-09-19:It's back, just in yesterday - green, current crop, natural processed, Maui Yellow Caturra - it's going in the roaster in just a little while.
