Coffee memories: a hot cup and chocolate cake on a cold, sleety day while visiting Reykjavik, Iceland before we were three.

It's here, it's here! Our Columbian green coffee beans arrived yesterday and Brandon didn't waste any time roasting a test batch. When I pulled in from work he came out into the garage in socks, handed me a cup of black coffee he'd just brewed from the test batch, and said "Taste this, I think it's going to be phenomenal." I don't think he's wrong.

Columbian beans will be up in the online shop shortly! Check back by the start of next week, or drop a note l if you want to be first in line to try it. Also be on the lookout: our decaf beans are scheduled to arrive *today.* This means I can drink coffee at ALL HOURS and I am so excited.

After the coffee had been tasted and the toddler and the lunch boxes and briefcases and all other manner of stuff had been brought from the car inside, we started decorating our family tree (key word being "started" - anything that takes more than an hour on a weeknight is not getting finished in one go), and I loved unwrapping these copper ornaments and tiny, knitted mittens my mother bought for our "Turkish Christmas Tree" the year we lived in Izmir, Turkey.

The sense memory they invoke is Konak Market, where she bought them, and the winding halls and alleys of stalls and shops filled with everything from tiny mittens to produce to gold to garden tools, and the traditional Turkish coffee that would be delivered directly into a shop for you on a beautiful tray in delicate cups. I didn't drink coffee then (I was 14), but I remember my parents drinking it. I drank tea, and remember the tulip-shaped glass tea cups rimmed in gold and filled with apple tea, the grounds settling at the bottom.

All this to say that your cup of coffee isn't just a cup of coffee, and adds up to a whole lot more than the sum of its taste and scent. Coffee has certainly become a part of our family tradition and we hope you bring our coffees into yours.

Meet Brandon & Amanda
 
WoodsongBoldenows

Woodsong Coffee was founded by Brandon and Amanda, coffee nerds whose obsession with caffeinated beverages only grew after becoming parents (thanks, 3 AM feedings!). Brandon is a D.C. native, and Amanda is an Arkansas native. After meeting in Austin, Texas, they moved to Colorado in 2012 for work. They fell in love with the mountains, the front range, and the people, and decided to stay. What started as an adventure in home coffee roasting quickly outgrew their kitchen, and is now in the process of becoming a small business micro-roastery.

Woodsong Coffee's mission is to create expertly crafted roasts from ethically sourced beans that translate into a delicious cup of coffee.

It's our goal to shorten the distance between farmer and drinker through transparency and knowledge, and to shorten the distance between roaster and cup through small batch roasts and quick distribution.  

Woodsong Coffee plans to sell its beans right here at woodsongcoffee.com, and hopefully at some of the amazing local coffee shops we know and love throughout Denver, Boulder, and across the front range. We also plan to sell quality brewing supplies and coffee accessories for fellow aficionados, nerds, and caffeine addicts.

We hope you'll check back for updates as we (impatiently) wait for our 2kg Mill City roaster to arrive, bulk up our coffee-nerd cards through roasting school, taste test all the beans we can get our hands on (hello again, 3 AM!), and prepare to start small batch roasts to share by spring of 2017. Thank you for joining us on this new endeavor!
