Quality Coffee and Quality of Life
There are two espresso options on the menu, including Olympia’s primary espresso, Sweetheart. Sweetheart is a rotating, seasonal single origin coffee. Sam Schroeder, co-owner of Olympia Coffee points out that, “Sweetheart intentionally does not try to achieve a consistent flavor profile, but rather provides our guests with a seasonal variety of flavors specific to a given moment.” The Sweetheart concept is one way the company implements its overall goal of “Quality Coffee and Quality of Life.” Schroeder goes on to explain, “If we feature a farmer’s coffee as Sweetheart Espresso, we can buy over 10 times as much coffee from that farmer than if we were to feature it as filter coffee alone. This has the ability to create much stronger bonds with farmers and improve quality of life at origin.” The current version of Sweetheart Espresso is from the Kirinyaga District of Kenya, where the coffee has grown on the slopes of Mt. Kenya. It’s a dynamic espresso with flavors of citrus, caramel and berry.
