Guest Roaster: Heart Coffee Roasters
We begin with some of the best green coffee from mainly Central America, South America, and Africa. We roast our coffee to the ideal degree, while fully developing complex flavors, and bringing out delicate clarity. The coffee is then cupped in the lab and must pass the standard of excellence before reaching our customers. We believe that starting with quality green coffee enables us to put the care into the roasted coffee we serve—from the source to the final cup. We love what we do and want to share it with you.
Take a seat, let it cool a little, and enjoy the difference in heart coffee.
We are proud to be offering Heart's Kenya Ruikra AA as our current single-origin espresso
Rukira factory is located about one hundred miles north of Nairobi in Nyeri county. Rukira has about 500 members who grow mostly SL28 and SL34 coffee varieties.
Rukira is part of the much larger Othaya Farmers Cooperative Society, which was founded in 1956 with an initial membership of 250 people. Today, the society has over 15,000 small scale members and 19 different coffee processing factories (wet mills). The society works to provide agronomy classes, health services, as well as basic schooling to it's members and their families.
Othaya Society is divided into two zones: upper and lower. In the upper zone, both tea and coffee are grown. In the lower zone, only coffee is grown. Rukira factory sits in the upper zone. The high altitude of the Rukira factory, and the farms that surround it, help to create a beautifully sweet and complex coffee. in our test cuppings of this coffee, we have been amazed by it's notes of strawberry hard candy, cream, and orange marmalade. Rukira AA is one of our smaller Kenyan lots and will not be around for very long.
Our Late 2017 Spotlight: The Shalom Community Center
As an independent and local business, Soma Coffeehouse and Juice Bar is committed to taking an active role in giving back to the community. Throughout the year, we select a non-profit organization within the Bloomington region for our spotlight program. In addition to providing a donation to the organization, we make an effort to raise awareness for the cause through advertising both within our shops and on social media.
For the remainder of 2017 we will be accepting donations on behalf of the Shalom Center. The mission of the Shalom Community Center is to aid and empower people experiencing homelessness and poverty. Shalom Community Center is an all-inclusive resource center in Monroe County for people who are living in poverty and experiencing its ultimate expressions: hunger, homelessness, and a lack of access to basic life necessities.
