Tony’s Coffee Brings Back Legendary Roast

There are a lot of great perks to being a Primo employee: Sampling all new products and machines, blasting music in the office, weekly visits from Shia LeBeouf.  But, perhaps the best part of working here is that we were able to cup the Hacienda La Esmeralda Especial Geisha roasted by Tony’s.

The first roast of the Geisha is November 7th.  Due to how awesome this coffee is, it is a pre-order item only.  Oh, did I mention that there is also a significant price decrease this go-round????  Please please call Emily NOW and reserve some–you won’t be disappointed.

Clever Coffee Dripper

A Full-Immersion Brewing Method

Mr. Todd Elliott from Tony’s Coffees and Teas came to the Primo offices recently and brewed us a killer cup of coffee with the Clever Coffee Dripper.  This thing is amazing.  Made of super tough, crack-resistant BPA free copolymer, the Clever Dripper has advanced the concept of full-immersion coffee brewing by creating an easy way to brew without loose grounds finding their way into your cup or any heat loss.

Unlike other filter drip systems, the Clever has a stopper on the bottom which allows you to control steeping time.  Simply place a paper filter and grounds into the Clever, pour water in and steep.  When ready, place the dripper on your cup or carafe and the stopper automatically opens and allows the filtered coffee to flow out.

Way to go Giants!

We at Primo are extremely proud of our San Francisco Giants!  Can’t wait to see what awesome memories the 2013 season brings!
