When a customer asks Paul Giuntoli what are his favorite beans among the kinds he sells at the Arcata Farmers' Market, he answers: "Paul's Mix." I interpret this to mean not only that he stands behind his signature bean mix, but also that he loves them all. Paul's Mix includes black, borlotti, calypso, canario, Jacob's cattle, speckled bayo, yellow eye beans — and another one or two varieties I can't remember now. Warren Creek Farms' organic beans are truly outstanding — and photogenic.
