unexpected coffee collection

My/Broken Jaw Press’ house coffee has been organic “Breaking the Silence” Guatemalan coffee (prepared by Just Us! Coffee Roasters Co-op in Wolfville, Nova Scotia), a fundraiser for Breaking the Silence (BTS) a voluntary network of people in the Maritimes who began to organize in 1988 to support the efforts of Guatemalans struggling for political, social, and economic justice: see the blog at breakingthesilencenet.blogspot.com.

I’ve also kept Grand coffee from Novi Beograd on hand since my travels in Serbia. It’s for those days I want something different—a little stovetop “domestic” coffee.

Earlier this year I was given some Kurukahveci, a real Turkish coffee, by a fellow grad student in an MEd course :-D

This morning, I had Wake Up Joe coffee gifted for my birthday. It’s an Arabica from Paramount Coffee in Lansing, Michigan bought because of its name.

This week, at Christmas, I was given three more whole bean coffees:

Sumatra Harimau Tiger from the tiny and new Puddle Jump Coffee Roasters on Causeway Road, Seaforth, Nova Scotia;

Another organic Arabica bean coffee, Harar Ethiopian, from Just Us!—a great small bean coffee that I’ve been given before;

and, most unexpectedly, a Jumping Bean Newfoundland Screech Rum Flavoured Coffee from St John’s on the Rock.

Must have a year’s supply of coffee in maison Broken Jaw!
