back @ it

It's been a while since our last post.  Much has happened.  We have moved to a location in the Westside/Crossroads district of KCMO.  Oddly Correct has joined spaces with Threehouse Media, which is an illustration/animation studio headed up by Jeremy Collins.  

Our plans include, gallery space, cupping bar, full scale creative freak outs & a climbing wall in house.  

Updates and pictures to follow.

Orange Treble Espresso is here

In session now is our Orange Treble espresso blend. It's bright & tight with a citrusy finish. With milk or soy it brings out cocoa tones. We're pretty excited about it.

Coming soon will be a more body-rific blend. For now, enjoy the clarity of the high end. Website soon to be updated with the blend.

Happy Monday when it comes for you.

Well, we have bobbed up on the facebook as Oddly Correct. We would love to use it as another way to stay in touch with y'all. Say hello if you're in that virtual neck of the woods.

That's as close to tweetin' as we're going to get we think.

scene from around the shop

new Sidamos on the way soon. there are a couple more exciting things bobbing on the surface of this odd sea we're sailing. bouldering wall should be constructed and flailable in about 2 weeks. no reason not to get strong whilst the roaster heats and cools. Happy Monday to y'all...

I've been prioritizing various aspects of our business(next to coffee that is...) week by week. Cycling printmaking for marketing purposes and printmaking for future projects. Here's a couple for the latter.

nowhere is safe...

Roving coffee ticos in the Midtown Kansas City tagging doors of coffee roasters! What gives? Have they no boundaries?

At least the coffee is amazing. We shall humor him for now...

By the way, fresh Cafetin de San Martin coffee straight off the boat coming our way next week. Can't wait.

Local Roasters Unite

Station Coffee in KCMO @ Westport Rd. & Southwest Trafficway is officially open and cranking. Naked portafilters, french press coffees & and maybe 3 bottles of syrup are in the entire establishment(NO WHIPPED CREAM!!! - so sorry...).

They are doing it right and are raising the bar for quality coffee in Kansas City proper. Local coffee roasters and bakers are featured there to keep the product fresh, and the competition friendly.

As we are aware, coffee shops should be places for the local community to unite. Here, it's local customers and local suppliers who weave through the rustic-modern interior, or wrap around the building for the drive thru. There's enough love to go around.

Inside the space there's a great vibe, and great people pulling shots. We are proud to be one of the featured local roasters there. Check out what's happening there if you happen through Kansas City. Try a shot of espresso, or some coffee black. It may change your life...

yip yip

we'll be hanging out with some other folks tomorrow in westport serving up hand made and local products. We'll have some Tanzanian Peaberry toddy-brewed (cold press), and some whole bean coffee for sale, as well as some cards on what nots.

If you are local, come on out and enjoy.

American Letterpress: The Art of Hatch Show Print

t a c t i l e . . .

I can't get enough. What a library of piles of wood... I hope it inspires.

Thanks to coffeeisfood for the compliments

We got a nice review from a coffee freak on the west coast recently.  It's a review of our roast of Tim O'Brien's coffee from the San Martin neighborhood milled at his Cafetin micro-mill.  We love it, and we are glad some else enjoyed it too.  

Check out his blog at

the goodle days of American coffee...

too many gems to count in this one.  click & Enjoy.

"lil' ol' gramma in a younger man's body"

That's what a friend of mine described me as, when I told him of my ideas for fancy ticklin' with mail order add ons.  You know, a sticker here, a little print there... Who doesn't like a little something extra?  Like a Patagonia catalog, you get sweet investment clothing and inspiring photos of people living exotically where ever they are.  

That's what we try to do.  Walk past burger kings, eat bananas while spilling coffee while the sun rises on your way to work, and you have to wear a sweatshirt in Kansas City on June 3rd.  Anyhow, live like you mean it in whatever you are doing.  I guess that's an obvious sentiment, but I have to keep reminding myself.  

So, that's what this little image is, a testament to the gramma in all of us.

The space is coming along.  Some sweat, cleaning efforts and a lot of roasting has characterized the past couple months.  Oh, and joy - let me not forget to record that quality.  

Until we commit to build out the whole space, we are laying down some rugs over the well worn and stained tile floor.  We are about 8 rugs and 8 curtains from being finished.  

As for the coffee, the season is changing, and bringing with it some great stuff.  I cupped an FTO Guatemala last week that tasted as if it was an African.  So, we will definitely be getting some of that.  As well as some tangy Tanzanian, we will be getting a beautiful auction lot of Kenya AA.  

Exciting...  Thanks for your support.

sack of rest

man, no complaints about the daily opportunity to roast amazing coffees for freaks like you.  Tomorrow begins the build out of the new space.  Can't wait to show y'all.

little gem

one more note about the new roasting space: waiting in the dormant room upon our arrival was this little beauty.  

the property owner passed it on to us as a gift.  

we will give it much love...

new space coming up

Today, we are getting the keys for our new spot here in midtown KC.  It's about 3 blocks from our home, and therefore, my coffee still may  be too hot to drink by the time I get to the shop.  

It's a century old, renovated (in the 50's) space.  It's going to take a lot of work to get it beautiful to other beholder's eyes, but to us-it's lovely.

Sumatra Harimau Tiger

Just got a nice Sumatra up on the site.  Working in a bit of a wilderness for a couple years, I missed the amazing-ness that can and should be a Sumatran profile.  This is a good break in to what this coffee can be.  

It's fruity & funky, with a near floral finish.  It's roasted to almost 2nd crack, (making me mourn now for all the years I torched this origin in past jobs) leaving all the goodness intact and in your cup.  

That is all...

Kitchen Letterpress

The short story of how this C&P Pilot got in my kitchen is the stuff dreams are made out of.  I was searching for this very model in KC, and found one for 3 or 4 grand.  I can't remember which price it was, but they were both out of my price range.  2 days after I declined dropping that kind of cash, my father calls me from a basement of an antique store in Moline, IL.  Same press I was looking for with 3 boxes of incredibly useful stuff for about $120.  Sold.  
So now this press is in our kitchen, and soon to be put to use in the shop.  Said boxes of useful stuff include tons of spacers, furniture and blocks with vikings, stars, cans of apricots and more.  Yahoo.  
Great find, Dad.  Thanks for your zeal.  This might be a good racket for you.

Up and Running

Oddly Correct is up and running.  We have a couple of coffees we are dialing in.  We are looking to bring in a third coffee to add to create a bitchin' blend.  That's just how we feel, y'all...

Check out   We have the site in bare bones form, and will be adding content in the next few moments of time.  Bottom left is a tiny little "order here" button.  Press it for some "coffee love", as a good friend calls it.  

we love you all.
