Our New Arrivals

Let us take your taste buds to another hemisphere.

Colombian Supremo

If you are new to buying freshly roasted coffee and don't know where to begin, or if you're a veteran, this selection will satisfy your coffee craving!

Profile

This classic artisan coffee is light roasted and displays a smooth yet complex body and a bright, sunny acidity. These large beans feature undertones of juicy lemons, brown sugar, and milk chocolate.

Guatemala Hunapu

An extraordinary coffee coming from the heirloom Bourbon trees of Arabica, producing coffees with brilliant balance, sweetness and complexity.

Profile

Aroma and flavor are lush yet crisply authoritative. Tartly sweet notes of berry and lemon, white floral notes and a hint of milk chocolate. Buoyantly juicy acidity, syrupy mouthfeel, long, sweet finish with continued suggestions of berry and milk chocolate.

El Salvador Finca

Finca Matalapa is located in the Balsamo mountains of El Salvador, on slopes where you can feel the cool ocean breeze of the Pacific.

Profile

Smooth and sweet with flavors of raspberry, pistachio and butterscotch with a unique combination of sweetness, refined acidity and concentrated fruit complexity.

Peruvian Puno

Grown in the southern part of Peru near Machu Pichu in the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains along the western slopes.

Profile

Smooth and delicate, very well-balanced with nutty and chocolaty tones and a sweet citrus taste in both the flavor and aroma. The taste is soft and sweet.

This coffee is no joke! I always go for the hopped iced coffee, never disappoints. This coffee is so freaking caffeinated it's on its own level. I can almost only drink 2/3 of a 24oz without feeling like my brain is going to fly out of my head. Sounds dramatic, but I'm very serious lol.

There is one thing that takes the highest priority in the early morning hours and that is where to get coffee, and where to get good coffee. Despite living in the suburbs I have fought my way through traffic to get to the Bench before rushing back to the suburbs for my afternoon classes on at college.

Love this shop! coffee is great and most importantly the staff is fantastic! They're always friendly and make you feel welcomed even when they're swamped. Gets a bit a hot in the summer though! Crank that a/c!
