LIMITED EDITION • Imbachi Single Origin Coffee

Posted by on June 4, 2018

Starting this week you can buy online or in your neighborhood Frothy Monkey a new limited edition single origin coffee that our roasters are so excited to share with you! Carlos, his wife Yolanda, and his son Dider Alberto cultivate 8 hectares of coffee at their farm near the town of San Agustin, in Huila, Colombia. Huila is in the southwest part of the country, along the Andean mountain range.

Carlos Imbachi Farm

His farming technique is amazing to see; Carlos, like many coffee farmers, is very focused on quality and ensuring the quality of the coffee makes it from the seed to the ship. The flavor notes we get from coffee in this region tend to be more on the tropical side of the spectrum, and this one is no different. Our production team tasted a lot of tangy, pineapple acidity, melon sweetness, with delicate floral top notes and a silky, black tea-like body. After all that flavor, there’s a comforting, molasses finish, and we know you’re going to love it!

Our green coffee buyer Tyler Zimmer writes:

The quality of coffee that comes out of Colombia never ceases to amaze me. Seems like every year I taste better and better coffee. Our next single origin release, Colombia Carlos Imbachi, is a reminder of how small of a world that we live in. During my first trip to Colombia in 2009, I was traveling around Huila with a group of Colombians doing work with small cooperatives in Colombia to help improve quality. They wanted us to check out the quality of small producers in the area. As we were walking farm to farm, meeting producers and seeing their farms, we came to the end of a dirt road to another producer by the name of Carlos Imbachi. I immediately recognized his name and then saw his plaque for 2009 SCAA coffee of the year. That year, his coffee placed first place for best coffee at the annual SCAA exposition. An incredible accomplishment and a random happenstance that we were able to meet him and visit his farm that day.
Carlos went on to win again with his quality coffee at SCAA in 2010, and over the years he just keeps getting better at his craft. Like Carlos, quality is one of our core values, and we are so excited to be able to offer you this limited edition Colombian delight so that you too can taste and see what deeply caring about your product looks like.
We recommend enjoying these beans brewed as a pour over {grab a Chemex + filters in our webstore with your Imbachi} and let us know what you think!

One of our core values is Relationships, and this value manifests itself in many ways. It’s evident in the way we support each other while embracing unity, fun, and inclusiveness as a staff and in how we’re present in and for our neighborhoods, empowering and serving the community however we can. You can also see it in the way that we cultivate relationships with local producers to bring quality ingredients to our menu and in the way we support local makers.

You may have noticed recently that a new mural has gone up at our 12South location, and this message from nash.tn done by local artist Bill Caywood exemplifies precisely what we mean when we say relationships matter to us. While art is often open to interpretation, ‘nashville looks good on you’ is his way of telling the community that this mission is not about him; you are the artists, and you have the power to create!

PC: Bill Caywood

Bill moved to Nashville in 2003 and since then he has created a home for himself both in the city and in its vibrant creative community. He’s been coming to Frothy Monkey 12south weekly for about 15 years, and in his words, “it really feels like family now”. Says Bill,

“I was going to all of these things around town with other artists and creatives, and I started noticing that Frothy Monkey was always a part of them in some way. That and the fact that the 12south store is a home away from home for me started connecting the dots on how nash.tn and Frothy Monkey are the perfect alignment. Our mission is to cultivate the creative community with the belief that by emphasizing “value over profit” we’re fostering a culture of togetherness which accelerates innovation exponentially, increasing our ability to thrive and grow as individuals and as a community. To break that down, it basically means that we think that by bringing creatives together on more than just “a project”, the osmosis from constantly being around forward-thinking people will keep your mind sharp, challenged, and driven. The goal is to share what we know and brainstorm together because if we surround ourselves with other dreamers (people who love to explore the possibilities) we can speed up the rate in which we produce world changing ideas. And solve problems.”

Here at Frothy Monkey we believe that relationships matter, and we are all about any way that we can join forces with others who are committed to changing our community for the better through creativity and unity. Like our friends at nash.tn say, “it’s a mindset and belief that if you can view the world differently – you can be the one to change it”.

nash?? - nashville looks good on you

If you haven’t been yet, that spiffy new mural behind our 12south shop highlights the good vibes and unity we all know and love here in Nashville, and it’s just waiting on you to come by and say hello. We will also have some fun products {posters + hats + mugs, oh my!} available in the shop {12south location only} while supplies last, so stop by to grab some swag or strike a pose with the mural, then share it with us by using some of these tags {#nashvillelooksgoodonyou #nashvillemurals #nashtn #frothylove} and remind yourself that Nashville DOES look good on you, but also, you are what makes Nashville good.

At Frothy Monkey we take coffee seriously, and that extends to the rest of our beverage offerings.  This is initially a surprise to those who aren’t familiar with the forward thinking breakfast through dinner coffeehouse concept, but in the summer of 2015 Frothy gained national recognition by Food & Wine Magazine as one of ‘8 Phenomenal Coffee Shops Where You Can Get Your Wine Fix’. Our beverage program includes a weekly Wine Down Wednesday, Wine Love dinners, Happy Hour, and Seasonal Coffeehouse beverages.

BAKERY by frothy monkey is expanding + moving

Posted by on March 16, 2018

BAKERY by frothy monkey is expanding + moving.

Hamburger buns, hoagie rolls, laminated pastries, and wedding cakes will be a few of the new products added to our line of wholesale breads and pastries.

When we opened our BAKERY by frothy monkey retail and wholesale operation on Fatherland Street in East Nashville in 2015, we signed a short term lease knowing we would quickly outgrow the space. Since then, we have exceeded our goals for growth and have become limited in our ability to keep up with demand. We identified a new Nashville home for our wholesale production space at the end of 2017 where we are currently building out the 7200 sq ft space into BAKERY production, warehouse, and offices.

We will be closing our East Nashville brick and mortar store on March 31st and transitioning our retail operation to selling products through the Frothy Monkey cafes as well as at Farmer’s Markets, and pop-up shops. Our bread CSA program and catering will continue and expand as well. Specific dates and details will be announced as they are confirmed (based on construction schedules).

We are looking forward to fulfilling Nashville’s growing need for high quality (and tasty!) artisan bread and pastries!

More information about wholesale products and catering for private events, weddings, and more can be found at frothymonkeybakery.com or by calling 615-600-4756 x5.
