From Caravan Coffee – The Willamette Valley is dotted with wonderful wineries and the town of Newberg is home to many of them. Newberg is also the home of artisan coffee roaster Caravan Coffee. Our Roastmaster uses two San Franciscan to roast small batches of coffee in a 20 pound traditional drum. We ship our artisan roasted coffee the day it’s roasted to ensure optimum freshness and flavor.
We source our coffees from all over the world and are proud to carry an extensive selection of relationship coffees as well as shade grown and Organic coffee. Our proprietor, Pete Miller travels the world to develop relationships with farmers and search for the best coffees.
In June we received a much anticipated shipment of Organic Ethiopian Amaro Gayo, a coffee with distinct blueberry notes. This coffee is rich, full-bodied and velvety smooth. It is one of the best natural-process coffees we’ve ever tasted! We are also delighted to offer a treasure from Hawaii; natural Maui Red Catuai. This coffee is light in body and coats the mouth with satiny smoothness. It is slightly nutty at the beginning and finishes with a sweet, ripe tropical fruit flavor.
These two coffees are among a dozen we feature in our Tasting Room. Our Tasting Room is a great place to try artisan roasted coffee via a fresh pour. In July we added a new coffee bar to the Tasting Room. The bar was rescued from a basement and lovingly restored by Pete before finding a home at Caravan!
In addition to the Tasting Room we offer weekly cuppings that are open to the public. Each Friday morning Roastmaster, Paul Allen leads the complimentary cuppings as part of his mission to raise awareness of great coffee. On any given Friday up to 15 people gather to explore the fragrance, aroma and flavor profiles of two varieties of coffee. Cuppings are an easy way to explore new coffees and to meet fellow coffee enthusiasts! After cuppings everyone gathers in the Tasting Room for fresh pours of the coffee we’ve cupped.
Our Tasting Room is open on Saturdays this summer; offering wine lovers access to a remarkable cup of coffee and adding value to their visit of the Willamette Valley!
