I haven't made nearly enough coffee posts lately. These exciting and new @roastedonross's coffees are as good o' time as any to start back up! We're pretty thrilled about the recent crops of coffee we've received. These two gems are both lighter-roasted, specialty grade, wonderfully sweet, subtle, and complex coffees, and they're more than worth your time. The Peru legit tastes like a candy bar, with some nutty, chocolately nougat flavors, while this Tanzanian Peaberry has some really nice African tart, citrus acidity to it as well. Let us know if we can help up your coffee game, and I may or may not have a Friends 'N' Family checkout code you can message me about to get 10% off your order. Give us a visit, and give your tastebuds and coffee intake a ride! #coffee #specialtycoffee #rossstreetroasting #peruviancoffee #tanzaniapeaberry #tobiasfunke #slate #theresdozensofus #dozens #iowacoffee #iowaspecialtycoffee #iowaroasted #shoplocal

Enjoying myself a nice deep dive into the fascinating world of the enigma that was Gram Parsons, and his fellow early country rock comrades. This record (courtesy of @marvsmusicdsm) sounds warm and wonderful, these pages swiftly yet relaxingly read, and this silky, subtlely smooth Papua New Guinea coffee from @roastedonross goes down ever easy. Not a bad night back in my personal dwelling after yet another weekend out of town. #wheredoiliveagain #imnotsosureiknowanymore #gramparsons #countryrock #callingmehome #bobkealing #offcolorbrewing #fakecoffeemug #rossstreetroasting #specialtycoffee

Hey beer drinkers and coffee lovers! Come to @peacetreedmbranch this weekend and try their collaboration with us at @roastedonross on this killer, super smooth coffee stout. Everyone lost their minds about Exile's Horizon Line Porter - which was good! - but we think this is even better. Come taste some roasty, remarkably smooth, black liquid gold at a classic Iowa Brewery! #craftbeer #peacetree #peacetreebrewing #desmoinesbeer #rossstreetroasting #coffeestout #coffee #drivebytruckers

Today I present my final bean from Ross Street Roasting. Ross Street Roasting Co. was founded in 2015 by small-town Iowa native, Brian Gumm. Brian spent a year and a half hobby roasting in his garage on Ross Street in Toledo, Iowa. The business scaled up from local word-of-mouth customers to begin serving cafés and retail stores in the Central Iowa area, as well as maintaining an online store that serves the entire US. In 2016, they moved into a 800 sq ft production facility in Tama, Iowa. In 2017 the business grew by over 160%, making significant progress on their mission to "Turn coffee drinkers into coffee lovers." This is his Dr. Doolittle's Espresso CLASSICO blend. The blend is compromised of 100% Direct Trade coffees from Nicaragua & Papua New Guinea. Roaster Brian developed this blend with a friend from his hometown, Jeff Doolittle, who in addition to being an espresso aficionado is a practicing medical doctor. For his help in developing the line of espresso blends, he offered to name them after him. And, really, who could pass up a product name like "Dr. Doolittle's Espresso"?! Ross designed this to be a traditional roast profile for espresso, with smokey chocolate and nutty notes up front, and a sweet cherry undertone. I brewed this at my 1:12 ratio. Even though I tend to prefer my cold brew to be made with lighter roasts, this still made for a tasty cold brew. Great mouthfeel, very syrupy and full. Chocolatey, nutty, cherry, stone fruits. Quite nice. Thanks again to Brian & Ross Street for the tasty beans. Brian sent out quite a few beans, and they were all very good, so make sure to go check him out.

Today I present my 3rd bean from Ross Street Roasting for you guys. Ross Street Roasting Co. was founded in 2015 by small-town Iowa native, Brian Gumm. Brian spent a year and a half hobby roasting in his garage on Ross Street in Toledo, Iowa. The business scaled up from local word-of-mouth customers to begin serving cafés and retail stores in the Central Iowa area, as well as maintaining an online store that serves the entire US. In 2016, they moved into a 800 sq ft production facility in Tama, Iowa. In 2017 the business grew by over 160%, making significant progress on their mission to "Turn coffee drinkers into coffee lovers." This is one of his Peru offerings. It is a blend of high-scoring lots from smallholder farms in the Cajamarca Region. I brewed this at my 1:12 ratio. I am beginning to notice that I tend to like Peru beans; not as much as my natural Ethiopians though. Nice apple-citrus acidity. Fruity & sweet, with notes of stone fruits, like cherry & plum, & cola. Nice syrupy mouthfeel too. Very tasty cold brew.
Thanks again to Brian & Ross Street for the tasty beans.

We think we have some pretty great coffees at Ross Street Roasting. But as of this week, I do believe we have a new King in our roster of coffee studs. This Guatemalan, single farm micro-lot, courtesy of the Pasqual family, is really like nothing I've tasted. Our team of experienced tasters had a remarkably wide disparity of flavor notes that we were trying to lock down. It took much longer to achieve a general consensus than just about any coffee I've had the pleasure of knowing. What initially tasted like some weird but good earthy funk, rounded out by milk chocolatey fudge, ended up being a big ole' bag of caramel apple suckers, and a whole hell of a lot of oatmeal raisin cookies. 5 to 6 days off roast, opening up the bag of beans was like taking a fresh pan of oatmeal cookies out of the oven on a Saturday afternoon. It's a strange, guarded and elusive coffee. But like a good boozy stout, once it opens up and welcomes you in, few experiences are as rewarding. We'd love for you to try this wonderful coffee and get to know it as well as we did. Link to buy in bio!

In 2017 the business grew by over 160%, making significant progress on their mission to "Turn coffee drinkers into coffee lovers." This is his Nicaragua, Finca Idealista Honey Process bean. Finca Idealista is the flagship farm of Ross' Direct Trade partner, Gold Mountain Coffee Growers. It sits on a mountaintop that borders a nature reserve, whose trees act as a natural air conditioner for its Paca & Caturra variety coffee beans. This cool microclimate lengthens the coffee cherry maturity process, allowing beans more time to absorb natural sugars and other attributes that contribute to a rounded cup profile. I brewed this at my 1:12 ratio. Ross notes flavors of sweet berry, floral, tropical fruit, & nutty. This was a tasty & unique cup of cold brew; I love natural & honey processed beans. Adds great character to the cup. Definitely a juicy & tropical fruit cup. Sweet berries, honeysuckle, caramel, nutty. Very nice cold brew. Thanks again to Brian & Ross Street for the tasty beans. Have a couple more from Brian for you guys.

Sorry for the absence everyone. Been a few crazy weeks with work, etc. Ready to get back into the swing of things, full force. Today I present a coffee from my buddy Brian at Ross Street Roasting. Ross Street Roasting Co. was founded in 2015 by small-town Iowa native, Brian Gumm. Brian spent a year and a half hobby roasting in his garage on Ross Street in Toledo, Iowa. The business scaled up from local word-of-mouth customers to begin serving cafés and retail stores in the Central Iowa area, as well as maintaining an online store that serves the entire US. In 2016, they moved into a 800 sq ft production facility in Tama, Iowa. In 2017 the business grew by over 160%, making significant progress on their mission to "Turn coffee drinkers into coffee lovers." This is his "Meow That's What I Call Light Roast!" blend. Iowa legends, RAYGUN, and Ross Street Roasting Co. have joined forces to create a fruity light roast blend perfect for drinking at home, in space, or with a raygun-wielding cat named Gary. The blend of beans used is 45% Ethiopia Konga Grade 2 Washed, 30% Colombia "Gran Galope," a regional select lot from the Huila region, & 25% Ethiopia Konga Grade 1 Natural. All components of this blend are sourced through Ross' primary importing partner, Cafe Imports, out of Minneapolis, MN. I brewed this at my 1:12 ratio. Ross notes flavors of bright fruit acidity, subtle chocolate, sweet, light-medium body. This was a very nice blend for cold brew. Nice acidity, as this is a heavy Ethiopian blend. But the mixture of washed & natural evens out the brightness a bit. Fruity & sweet chocolate & citrus. Very tasty. Thanks again to Brian & Ross Street for the tasty beans. Two of our cats, James & Duffy, thank you as well. Stoked to feature the other beans Brian sent me down for you guys.

I suppose it's a lot more official when I have a business card, eh? A lot has changed since I posted my first (and useless) business card, two years ago. For one; clarity. On the direction I'm going creatively and professionally, and where I would ultimately like to be located. After two years of tireless searching and increasing my knowledge and craft, I finally found a way into the specialty coffee world. Brian at @roastedonross was gracious enough to offer me a position selling his wonderful brand and beans in the Des Moines area before ultimately carrying Ross Street into the Big Bad World of Chicago. I cannot thank him enough for the opportunity. And in the meantime, might I interest you in some Iowa roasted specialty grade coffee?

@onlymanual.coffee was one of the first people to try our new Finca Idealista natural, and it changed his mind on naturals! 😎☕️
・・・
This natural Idealista (@goldmtncoffee) from @roastedonross is👌🏻👌🏻. I've been battling naturals lately being overly acidic, but this one is on point and so enjoyable. It was just released on the Ross Street website so go grab a bag! For me to actually recommend a natural, that says a lot. // #coffee #coffeeblog #coffeenerd #coffeegeek #ibrewmyowncoffee #onlymanualcoffee #onlymanualbrew #manualbrew #manualcoffee #specialtycoffee #goldmountaincoffee #rossstreetroasting

One of the best parts of roasting coffee is getting to know other roasters and trading products. @roastedonross and I traded mugs and beans. Check out this sweet glass mug and his AMAZING Ethiopian Yirg. Delicious!
