At Goodly we shop locally as much as possible. It’s good to know your neighbors, after all, and many of our neighbors are small businesses just like us. In the past we’ve introduced you to other Central Coast locals like Root Elixirs and Yes Cocktail. (Because we love cocktails as much as we love to shop local!) This month we’d like to tell you all about our local coffee source: Calioh!
We love good coffee here at Goodly, as well as all the things that accompany good coffee! That’s how we discovered Ventura, California-based Calioh, a primarily business-to-business coffee roaster and vendor. (If your office coffee is really lousy, you might want to give them a call!) Really though, Calioh puts their main focus on providing quality specialty coffees and sustainable coffee products. In fact, their head roaster, Matt Powers, is certified by the Specialty Coffee Association!
When you pick up our Goodly to the Last Drop Coffee or our Welcome Home Coffee blends, that’s all Calioh! Both blends are a mix of dark roasted organic coffees from Central America, South America and Africa. They're roasted just dark enough to express a rich body but without the bitter aftertaste. Look for hints of dark chocolate and cherry in both of these delicious coffees.
One of Calioh’s points of pride is the sourcing of their beans. They call it a “never-ending crusade” to find the best coffees and farms from all over the world. They consider the quality as well as the traceability of every coffee they offer!
Congratulations to these cool coffee roasters are definitely in order: they recently won an award for every category they entered in the Golden Bean Coffee Roasting Competition!
The Golden Bean has been running now for nineteen years in Australia and is in its eighth year in North America. It is one of the key elements in the growth of the coffee industry by way of rewarding the coffee roasters, the vital person in the chain for all coffee businesses.
By winning, it means they’re eligible for the Golden Bean World Series in Kona, Hawaii, this December. Go Calioh! We’re rooting for you!
While you can always grab this fantastic coffee by itself, Calioh is one of the best parts of our fabulous coffee-themed gift boxes.
