Elm Nine Swans
One of the things we love about our partnership with our neighbor Elm Coffee is that buying wholesale from Elm allows us to shop locally -- twice! Of course it lets us support a Pioneer Square neighbor. But Elm also ensures they understand their coffee from bean to cup. They travel and research extensively to make sure they know how their (our!) coffee is grown, harvested, and dried -- choosing environmentally friendly options from independent "local" growers every step of the way.
TPC's house coffee is Elm's 9 Swans - a rotating varietal that changes with each harvest, but always hovers in the darkest-of-blondes category. Right now, 9 Swans is Mireya Trujillo. Mireya, her husband Jairo, and her cousin Yamison are all Colombian producers. Mireya’s coffee has deep grape/raisin, orange, and caramel flavors. Round and sweet, it is excellent both straight and with milk.
Georgetown Bodizafa IPA
Georgetown brings quality and attention to detail to every beer they brew. Whether it's their standards like Manny's Pale and Roger's Pilsner, or their unique, boundary pushing seasonals, I'm always pleased by anything that comes out of their brewery. One of my favorite parts of the month is picking up our new keg and trying the new rotating beers in the tasting room. This month we have one of their most popular beers on tap at tPC, the Bodizafa IPA
Here's a description directly from the source:
FOR BEER LOVERS
This IPA gets its light silky texture from rolled oats. The flavor and aroma both express mandarin and citrus all around. Over five pounds of hops per barrel makes this IPA truly Bodhilicious. Gold medal winner in the American Style IPA category at the Great American Beer Festival in 2016!
