Read about Grind Types

We have recently adjusted our grind options. With that in mind, we wanted to offer this primer so that you can choose the best grind-style for your preferred brewing method.

Whole Bean-- While we are happy to grind your beans, your coffee will stay fresher longer if you grind it as you go. There are many great home grinder options out there and many are surprisingly inexpensive.

Drip-- This is a medium grind that is the most versatile. Brewing methods using drip include home coffee drip machines, pour-overs (like Hario), Chemex, and AeroPress.

Espresso-- This grind is generally used for espresso makers. This includes home machines and stove-tip espresso pots. The grind is the most fine and is optimized to work with a high pressure extraction system.

Coarse-- Coarse is for percolators, french press, cold brewing, and sometimes AeroPress. Coarse is the biggest/loosest grind and enables water to move more freely steeping coffee for extraction.

All of the above, while generally true in the industry, also should be adjusted for preference. Feel free to experiment and please contact us if you have questions and we will be happy to work with you.

Product Overview

A blend of African, Central American and Indonesian fair trade, organic, and shade-grown coffees. This blend supports the rehabilitation of the Historic Americus Colored Hospital that was established in 1923 and operated as a hospital until 1953. It was the only medical facility in South Georgia where black medical professionals could train and practice. After the hospital was closed, the building was used as a community center and day care. At the height of the Americus Civil Rights Movement, it was a place where literacy was taught and also housed a library for the black community, and a place where protest marches were planned.

The Americus Sumter County Movement Remembered Committee (ASCMRC) is now working to restore the facility as the Americus Civil Rights Museum and Cultural Center. Portions of the proceeds of the sale of this coffee support this effort.

Please visit their website for more information and to get involved.

    I don't drink coffee, but my wife loves this coffee. It's smooth, flavorful and easy to drink. if you drink coffee, ,you should try it. Also, it helps fund a good cause.
