New crop Brazil is here! Our latest single origin offering was produced by our friend Sergio Dias on his farm, Finca Canaan, situated in the Mantiqueira de Minas micro-region of Southeastern Brazil.

Cocarive comprises a close knit community of 700 farmers who have rejected industrial scale, low grade coffee production in favor of focusing on developing smaller lots of high quality coffee for export to speciality markets in the US, Europe and Asia.Continue reading Brazil Canaan

At Cafe Besalu we’re proud to be part of the Ballard community. We wanted to create a permanent art installation that would pay tribute to our neighborhood, so we reached out to our friends at the Ballard Historical Society and the Museum of History and Industry. They helped us to assemble a wonderful collection of photographs that depict Ballard in days gone by. We were even lucky enough to find an early 20th century image of our own storefront , which at that time housed a barber’s shop selling haircuts for a quarter. We’re really excited to have these photographs on our walls, so come on in and browse the fascinating images as you enjoy a pastry and a cup of coffee!Continue reading New Art Installation at Cafe Besalu
