more about our service...
The Coffee: We are currently highlighting a single-origin Brazilian bean, called Tiger Stripe Espresso from Paper Tiger Coffee Roasters. The Tiger Stripe Espresso is a single origin, Brazilian coffee from the JC Farms in the Carme de Minas region. This smooth espresso with nut, caramel, and cocoa tones shines as a shot of espresso or in a latte.
