About Our Coffee and Tea
Coffee Classics coffee comes from the classic growing areas of the world. Many of
our coffees like our Colombian Supremo,
La Minita Estate (Costa Rica),
Kenya AA, Kona Fancy,
Jamaican Blue Mountain,
Mexican Altura and others are
single origin coffees and represent the best examples of
their type. Our
great coffees come from mountainous areas having just the right
weather conditions and volcanic soil. It is high grown, generally 3000 to
6000 feet above sea level. It is all
and comes from farms so inaccessible that only agile workers and their
animals can reach the trees to tend them and pick the ripe coffee fruit by hand. The workers
return to the same tree several times during the season picking only the
ripe fruit. It is a lot of work, but it's the only way to produce
Specialty coffee represents a tiny fraction of the coffee produced around the
world. It is grown by farmers who take great pride in their product.
After picking and processing, the green coffee beans are exported to our
roaster and expertly roasted,
(an art as much as science) to bring out the coffee's best qualities.
Our coffee is small batch roasted to reveal each
coffee's best characteristics.
Our flavored coffees are based on high quality specialty coffee beans which are
skillfully flavored to produce a delicious cup of coffee which maintains the wonderful taste
of great coffee, enhanced with your favorite flavors, like
Vanilla, Hazelnut Cream,
Irish Cream, Tiramisu
and many others.

The lady is my wife / partner / and best friend. Sharon was very
particular about the store and here she is doing what she loved to do,
keeping the store looking neat, clean and orderly. She selected,
purchased and directed the placement of all of the merchandise. She
had an unusual ability to know what was on hand, what and how much was
needed. She was "Mom" to many of the young folks that worked at Coffee
Classics and the mall. They could ask any question knowing it would be
strictly between them and that her answer was always
trustworthy. Our customers too, sensed her genuine honesty and
trustworthiness. Her word was good. She was the best friend one could
Sharon is gone now,
