Hey folks,

just thought I'd share the latest find for me. Café Eureka, based in Moncton.  I've been trying them out for a few months now, and the coffees and roasting are consistently great.  I'm still blown away at the selection... it's like Sweet Maria's of the north, but roasted coffee!  

My new go-to espresso is their Haile Selassie, probably because of the dry processed in there (I tend to love dry processed).

Is it all roasted coffee or do they also offer greens? What are they roasting on? It's great to see see this in Moncton!

Signed up to put my recommendation forth as well. (It's been a long time coming anyway)

Will mirror what T_Rick is saying. I've been ordering from them since August(?) of last year. Consistently good, well roasted coffee, with a lot of rare and odd options. (California, anyone?)

My go-to here is the Ethiopian Kochere Teklu Dembel. Really solid Ethiopian coffee, tasting notes are spot on, and the roast is great.

Denis is very passionate and always a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend checking Cafe Eureka out.

As far as I know, they only offer roasted, and I don't know what they roast on.

I just picked up some Panama Elida Natural.  Looking forward to trying that tomorrow.

Denis here from Café Eureka. At this point, we offer roasted coffees only, but our selection is very eclectic. I have made many contacts through the years, bugging plantation owners to send me their coffee so we can share their offerings in this part of the world. We strive to roast each coffee to its perfect pitch because we believe each and every coffee has a story to tell. So, no blond coffee or over roasted coffee here.
We may eventually get into selling green beans (found some promising leads in Central America), and eventually stock up in quality grinders and a couple of good home coffee roasters, something that is not easily found on the eastern seaboard.
I use a Solar roaster for my large batches, and abuse a Hot Top programmable roaster for my regular orders. Hot Top is hard to beat, can't wait until they release their one pound roaster.
