All Merciful Saviour Russian Orthodox Monastery
Vashon Island, WA
With the slogan "To drink any other coffee would be a sin" the
monks of this monastery on Vashon Island, WA, are selling a
little bit of heaven in a cup. Just a short ferry ride from the
coffee mecca of the US, Seattle, the monks support themselves
with a mailorder coffee business. Their "Monastery Blend"
coffees have such appropriate names as "All Night Vigil", their
darkest coffee, "Angelic", a medium roast, and "Byzantium", a
Greek style coffee. Their coffees are truly out of this world.
For those who live in the "coffee wastelands", this is a good
source for high quality coffee. Help support the monks. For a
extra donation, they will even say a prayer for you. How can
you go wrong!

Seattle's Best Coffee has been roasting coffee for over
twenty-five years. SBC was originally started as The Wet Whisker
in 1967 by Jim Stewart. His goal then, and now, was to serve the
"perfect cup" of coffee. Over the years, we've changed our name
to Stewart Brothers Coffee and finally to Seattle's Best Coffee
after winning an award entitled with the same name. The one
consistent factor throughout the years has been that Jim Stewart
has continued to search for the world's best coffees. He
continues to travel extensively cupping and buying Seattle's Best
Coffee. In Jim's pursuit of the "perfect cup", he brought aboard
Master Roaster Peter Larsen from Germany who roasts the coffee in
SBC's distinctive Northern European style. Jim prefers this
method as it allows the individual coffees to release their own
flavor characteristics. SBC further insures that a "perfect cup"
is provided by offering a full line of organically grown coffees
from around the world. If you would like to join us in the
search for the perfect cup please call us at 1-800-243-5206 or
send me a message and I will see that any of your questions are
answered by the experts at SBC.
