White Campfire Mug Recall

Posted by on August 7, 2019

Hey Friends,

We were recently made aware that the white Frothy Monkey Campfire Mugs currently being sold in stores and online were printed with an ink that may wash off in the dishwasher – specifically when using Cascade pods. The product was not labeled with instructions to hand wash only and the thought of faulty printing being a disappointment to all the people who bought these mugs to mark a memory makes us feel the saddest! If you purchased a white campfire mug since March of this year and have had any issues with the imprint coming off, we would love to replace that mug for you, or issue a full refund. Please fill out the form below and we will replace your mug free of charge!

And if you have one of these mugs sitting on your shelf with the logo intact, be advised that these are hand wash only so please protect that monkey and keep it out of the dishwasher!

If you have any further questions feel free to contact shop@frothymonkey.com

LIMITED EDITION: CHACON COSTA RICA NATURAL

Posted by on August 7, 2019

We taste sugarcane juice and candy, with an abundance of blackberry jam flavors, followed by a blood orange acidity and deep red plum notes.


This coffee is a Perla Negra Natural, meaning the coffee seeds dried in the fruit, skin intact, for 10 days under constant rotation before being transferred to bags for 2-3 days and finishing on raised beds. Thanks to this method, it boasts a big flavor, intense fruitiness, and rich sweetness., and it makes for a big, rich, exotic cup.

Our newest revelation takes us to some of the leading innovators of Costa Rica, Oscar and Francisca Chacon. In 2008, when an earthquake cut off water access for their Las Lajas micromill, the Chacons improvised. Knowing that other countries like Brazil and Ethiopia had success with natural or pulped-natural methods that required less water, the Chacons decided to try it with that year’s harvest. The results were surprising — when tasted alongside their traditional washed offerings, the naturally processed coffees stood out for their fruity, exotic cup character.

The Chacons have since led the way in Costa Rica’s micromill revolution. Experimenting with a wide range of drying times and methods has given these coffees their names (like “red honey” or “Alma Negra Natural”). Producers like the Chacons exemplify the forward-thinking creativity that makes coffee and ever-intriguing beverage. Even more so, they represent hope for coffee producers everywhere who face increasing challenges in the decades ahead. Rather than fold in the face of adversity, the Chacons reinvented their 180-year-old farm, preserved its legacy, and brought new and exquisite coffees into the world.

Chacon Costa Rica Natural will be available for a limited time at all Frothy Monkey locations and from our online store!

2018 Festivus Blend

Posted by on November 23, 2018

 

A blend of coffees from Sumatra + Ethiopia feat. notes of dried fruits, vanilla + baking spices

For the holidays we combine two very different and complex coffees from Sumatra and Ethiopia. For the 2018 Festivus Blend, we have once again selected two of the finest coffees Sumatra and Ethiopia have to offer.

We commissioned local artist, Neal Russler to hand letter the Festivus art and the packaging was screen printed in Nashville, TN by Grand Palace.

This year’s Ethiopian component is a naturally processed coffee from the Konga cooperative, grown in the world famous Yirgacheffe region. This complex coffee adds plenty of dark fruit notes to the blend, such as cherry and blueberry.  

The Sumatran component comes from the famed Aceh region in northern Sumatra.  Here the coffees are picked at peak ripeness and then processed in the “wet hull” method that has made Sumatra famous for their flavor profile. Our 2018 Festivus Blend adds plenty of depth with notes of vanilla, oak, and baking spices.   

Together, these coffees create our version of one of the world’s original coffee blends, Mocha Java.  

Festivus Blend will be available at all Frothy Monkey locations and from our online store throughout the holiday season!

FMRC Current coffees

Posted by on August 10, 2018

We are proud to offer 12South Blend, which is our house blend used for both drip and espresso. This coffee is roasted here in Nashville and it’s name honors our original home in the 12South neighborhood. We also roast and serve Brunch Blend (our breakfast blend), Unwind {decaf}, and our Single Origin coffees. Bags are available for purchase online and at all of our locations! #frothymonkeyroastingco

12South Blend, is our signature espresso blend which also makes great drip coffee, is sweet throughout, with balanced acidity, smooth body, and a caramel chocolate finish.

Unlike coffee blends, Single Origin Coffee has a single geographic origin. This could be a single farm or a single country. For the majority of these coffees we will have a direct relationship with the farmer who grows it. Because coffee is a crop, harvesting is seasonal and the timing is specific to each region, our selection of single origin coffees will vary throughout the year.

To make it extra special, we commissioned local artist, Alicia Binkley of Monkey Ink Design to illustrate our Single Origin labels.

Current varieties (check our locations for availability):

Colombia Elcy Causaya

VARIETY: Caturra
ALTITUDE: 1700 m

About our {next} home in The Nations

Posted by on April 1, 2017

We are looking forward to being a part of The Nations neighborhood! Plans are underway to renovate the space in the Stocking 51 building next to what has become Nicky’s Coal Fired– a location that was chosen in late 2016 and made official on February 1st. Construction is set to begin soon. {Read our official announcement here.}

Just over 3500 sq ft. of the building will be renovated to hold roughly 124 seats. The space is designed to serve a wide variety of customers. From the families that come in for brunch, to an ideal date spot, to the perfect place to sit and work or have a business meeting, or grab a drink after work, our goal is to create a place where everyone feels welcome. It will be a mix of seating including tables, booths, bar seating, community tables. 

We’ll keep you posted on our progress! Here is a preview of our new space…
