Ski The Whites Coffee Company
We came to coffee in a roundabout way. You know early mornings; the alarm sounds and you’re up to get after it. For us, this also means that a warm cup of coffee is consumed and, to be honest, that’s why we started to roast our own; a passion for big outdoor pursuits goes handedly with caffeine. Whether it’s to get up at 5am for a powder day in the winter, or going for that mid-summer hut traverse, we push the limits and we love our caffeine as it keeps us going.
We are two athletes with a taste for freshly roasted coffee who like to run, bike, ski, and hike through the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It was on an early-season run through Evans Notch when we both agreed that it was time to begin roasting ourselves and to share the end result. After a few trial batches--and only one roaster fire--we felt confident that our product could be enjoyed by many.
We are pleased to offer a variety of single origin beans in addition to our blends, which are all hand-roasted at the shop on Main Street in Jackson, New Hampshire. We roast in small batches and maintain a roast-to-order policy ensuring that our roasting schedule will always deliver you the roasted coffee that is ideal in color, smell and flavor.
Offerings (ORDER HERE):
Ethiopian (Yirgacheffe): This one’s for the day off when it’s time to read the paper and take in the slow morning while relishing the nuances. We roasted this full-bodied bean on the lighter side to let you get that smooth cup of coffee with notes of berry. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do on that much needed rest day.
Guatemala (La Paz) Light, sweet, and hints of cinnamon hit our pallet, but we’d be curious to hear what you think! This is one of our medium roasted beans that we have also used in our blend. A medium to light bodied bean that is sure to motivate you for any bike ride or hike.
Colombian (Organic): We were pleased to be able to get this this fully-washed caturra bean. Grown at about 1500 meters, this bean is rather delicate and we have opted to roast on the lighter side so that the pleasant aromas of lemon and tangerine shine through. We think it makes for the optimal single origin pour-over bean, but let us know what you think!
Colombian (Decaf): Savor the taste but don’t want the rush? The decaf blend has been roasted on the lighter side to maximize the pallet experience, but guaranteed a good night’s sleep.
Indonesian (Organic): Like most Indonesian beans, we’ve found that this is great roasted on the darker side and can be the perfect accompaniment to any camping adventure. Press it, steep, pour it, or soak it, this bean is bold and durable and is up to meet the day’s challenges.
The FKT Shot Blend (60% Brazil/40% Guatemala): Nothing like a big pot of drip to get you going for that sought after FKT! Then, after it’s over, pull a shot of afternoon espresso to help aid with that recovery. We blended these medium roasted beans to make a full-bodied blend that can be great brewed for drip coffee or espresso.
Brazil (Cerrado): We call this the workhorse bean. A solid staple to our blended roast that pulls beautiful crema to any shot of espresso. On its own, it's not quite up to par with other single origin beans so if you like dark, go with Sumatra (Indonesia) or Colombian (ask for dark roast).
