The Virginia Farmhouse carries locally roasted coffee as well as a variety of teas and herbal tisanes
New: Lapsang Souchong Tea from The Loose Leaf Tea Co. of Boston, VA. Lapsang Souchong tea is a black tea from China’s Fujian Povince that is dried over pine embers infusing it with a rich, smoky flavor. This tea brews up a bold, full-bodied and spicy cup that is a bit of an acquired taste.
We carry locally roasted coffee from Cabin Creek Roasters of New Market. We usually stock two different varieties each of light, medium and dark roasts in 1/2 lb bags. These are whole bean (which stay fresher), but we are happy to grind them for you if needed.
Currently we have the following varieties in stock:
- Bob-O-Link- Is a shade grown blend from Brazil. This medium-bodied light roast has hints of chocolate and walnuts with a pleasant natural sweetness.
- Colombia Decaf- This is a Swiss-Water processed decaf with a mellow nutty (think English Walnuts) flavor. It is a light roast.
- The Full Monty Blend- This dark-roasted blend of Colombian and Tanzanian beans is as bold and full-bodied as the name implies.
- Guatemala Huehuetenango Blend- This blend of Bourbon, Caturra and Catuai beans produces a medium bodied cup with a bright acidity and a complex, spicy, floral nose and fruity flavor.
- Papua New Guinea- This is a full-bodied, medium roast with floral and spicy undertones.
Power Grinds- Are coffee beans that have been deeply infused with flavors like Irish Cream and Pumpkin Spice. To use sprinkle a 1/4 tsp or so (for a 12 cup pot of coffee) over your coffee grinds before brewing and they will flavor your coffee as it brews. We currently carry Holiday Grogg, Irish Cream, Peppermint Stick, Pumpkin Spice, Raspberry Cream and Vanilla Macadamia Nut flavors.
We have several dried herbals that are great combined with regular teas or by themselves such as:
- Lemongrass- Cut & Sifted, Organic
- Linden Flowers- Whole
- Jasmine Flowers- Whole
- Lavender Buds- Whole, Locally Sourced
- Senna- Organic
You can also find a variety of tea and herbal tisanes from The Loose Leaf Tea Company of Boston, VA. These teas come in attractive 1 oz boxes with filter bags for convenience- they make great gifts for others or a treat for yourself. Most are Organic and all are Fair Trade.
