Fortunately, the Saratoga Farmers’ Market is inside the Wilton Mall during these chilly, sometimes frigid, winter days. Did you know that you can sip a hot cup of coffee from one of our vendors while shopping at the market? I recently had a great chat with Sam, owner of Nally Coffee, about the brand and beans.
When did you start Nally Coffee?
I started Nally Coffee in February 2021.
What led you to create your coffee brand?
I was interested in specialty coffee and trying it from different parts of the world. I discovered roasting coffee after my brother gave me un-roasted coffee beans for Christmas, so I started researching and learning. Things fell into place a couple of years ago, and I knew it was time to jump in and give it my best shot!
How many flavors do you have?
Currently, I have five blends with new flavors coming. I currently offer The Adventure, The Heritage, The Puffin, The Tune Skis, and a decaf Honduran coffee blend.
In making the Adventure and Heritage Blends, I use Fair Trade organic Honduran Coffee with a heavier body with caramel and butterscotch notes. The Heritage blend is a darker roast with nice smokey and nutty-like flavors. I make the Puffin and Tune Skis Blends from Fair Trade and organic Colombian coffee with fruity notes like cherry and orange. The darker roast has a subtle hint of smokiness. The Decaf is very popular; it's smooth with a brown sugar tone.
What makes each blend unique?
Each roast has a great story on the back of the bag that I pride myself in sharing. As for the coffees themselves, the beans and roasting level differentiate them from each other and other coffees roasted in the area.
What products do you offer:
My blends are available in whole bean or ground. I have three K-cup varieties, and visitors can purchase brewed coffee on-site.
Come on by and say ‘hi’ at the market! My name is Sam (I don’t like green eggs, but I do like ham), and I love to chat.
