*Coffees brewed using Hario V60 Pourover Cones have a clean flavor and smooth body.  Because each cup is brewed individually, there is an even extraction giving the coffee a more intense and enjoyable taste.
El Salvador:
Grown in the mountains of El Salvador on the Las Nubes farm, this coffee combines full bodied flavors of berries and dark chocolate that are highlighted by notes of citrus and toasted nuts. This coffee has been certified organic and has received the Rainforest Alliance Certification for social and environmental stewardship.
1635 coffee producers belong to the Biloya Cooperative in the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. Ethiopia is generally considered the birthplace of coffee and farmers in this area still use traditional growing practices to create truly unique coffees.
Grown on the Conquista Estate in northeastern Brazil, our Socially Conscious Brazil has a sweet, caramel aroma and a warm, chocolaty finish. This coffee is both pleasant on the tongue and easy on the stomach. Stone Creek Coffee has partnered with Socially Conscious Coffee to support the Centro Rural Educafe, a school on the farm for harvesters and their families. Our Brazilian coffee is delicious coffee with a bright purpose.
Decaf Cream City Blend:
Named for the city in which it was created, our Cream City Blend is still hand-roasted in the Stone Creek Factory in downtown Milwaukee. This coffee is a friendly get together of our highest-quality Guatemalan, an extremely smooth Mexican, and our Decaf French Roast. Cream City Blend is a rich, full, mellow coffee that's as easy-going as the city for which it is named.
