It's Sumatra Time!
Coffee is a crop. It may seem odd to think of coffee this way since it is also a dried seed from a small fruiting tree. And we don't think about the crop cycle of other dried seeds on our kitchen shelves. But there is a particular window of time when a new crop of coffee arrives at the Oakland port (a mere 5 minutes from our shop) and all the good coffee buyers are on the hunt for the best lot.
