We proudly serve Buddy Brew Coffee, a local craft roaster from Tampa, Florida.

Buddy Brew's coffee is carefully selected from farmers who diligently grow and process the beans to their highest quality, and treated with tremendous care by artfully hand roasting each bean to its individual perfection. They believe coffee is best enjoyed when it is freshly roasted and meticulously prepared, and we couldn't agree more!!! See below for descriptions of some of the varieties that we serve. And then come see us so we can prepare an amazing cup of coffee for you!!!

Ethopian Sidamo Guji

Brazil Sul de Minas

José Renato Gonçalves Dias manages the Fazenda Sertaozinho in an ecological manner with the objective of preserving the life of the fertile soil for years to come. Every step from planting to drying is all done by hand. This process allows for a selective harvest by only hand-picking the ripe cherries. Such care shows in the cup! Brazil produces about 1/3 of the total world coffee production hence the importance in the global setting. A record harvest will make the coffee market tank while a significant frost will make it rally. This is one of my favorite origins to visit and it is very different than most. The food is great, there is modern infrastructure, and the Euro-Latin vibe is awesome! Brazilian coffee can be a significant component in a roaster’s menu specially if they use it in their espresso blend. Traditionally, most espresso recipes have included Brazil due to its characteristics: low acidity, high body, creamy, caramel, and chocolate notes, with a significant amount of sweetness. The Yellow Bourbon coffees come from Mogiana region in the state of Minas Gerais, one of Brazil’s most important coffee regions. They are estate specific coffees from farms which have made it numerous times into the Cup of Excellence auction. These coffees will be a step-up from your traditional Brazilian profile. Origin: Brazil Region: Sul de Minas Farm: Fazenda Sertãozinho Altitude: 1000-1300 meters Proc. Method: Natural. Dried on patios.

What you taste in the cup:
Higher citric acidity than most Brazils. Sweet fruit, dark chocolate, and peanut butter notes.

Guatemala Huehuetenango

The Guatemalan Republic located in the Central American region is one of the countries with a long tradition in producing high quality coffee. Its microclimates, lush nature and topography allow it to produce exquisite coffees that are among the best in the world. The Sustainable Coffee Association of Guatemala ASDECAFE, is organized with the objective of making washed Arabica coffees of excellent quality from the Huehuetenango and El Quiche regions available to the international market.

Brazil RS Water Processed Decaf

Perhaps the truest test of one’s devotion to coffee would be to eliminate the caffeine and then see who keeps coming back for more. Considering they get all the show and none of the go, it stands to reason that a decaf drinker actually is the most devoted coffee lover of all! For years, this long-suffering subculture has been mired in what can really only be described as the dregs of the coffee world. Decaf has too often been the dumping ground for cheap, old, and defective coffees that do not pass muster as the real stuff. Combine this with decaffeination processes which can create flavors ranging from flat and dry to downright astringent, and the final result in the cup is hardly worthy of our devoted brethren.

No More!

The Royal Select Water Processed Decaf is here!! It is safe to say that the results speak for themselves. First of all, only the absolute best beans are used. Kenya Auction lots? Single Estate Huehues? Fair-Trade Organic Perus? You bet. The real magic happens when the beans are sent to be decaffeinated. Descamex, in Veracruz, has developed a non-contact water process which returns the coffee in such good shape that sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between the decaf and the regular. If you have not had the opportunity to try one of these RSW Decafs, please give this Brazil a try. It’s the least we can do for you true coffee fanatics out there!
