our coffee

 
 

Medium well

Our darkest roast, this coffee is made up of a rotating selection from what is seasonally available and is profiled to be consistent year-round. Currently, our Medium Well hails from the Union Cantinil municipality located in the Huehuetenango department of Guatemala. Seventy-six small producers contribute to this lot, from farms an average of 4 acres large at an altitude of 1700 meters above sea level.

Varietal: Bourbon, Caturra, Catuai, Typica

Notes: Dark chocolate, Citrus, Almond

 

Colombia - Decaf

This blend of coffees from the Cadefihuila Coop in Huila is comprised from 15 farmers’ crops from the Pitalito, Acevedo, and Palestina districts between 1700-1850 meters above sea level. These coffees underwent a 20-26 hour fermentation before sun-drying for about 25 days and being naturally decaffeinated with Ethyl Acetate. This process maintains much of the green coffee flavor and has an integrated vertical supply chain, since the growing, processing, and decaffeination process all happens at origin in Colombia.

Varietal: Caturra, Castilla, Tabi

Notes: Rooibos, Fennel, Caramel, Orange

 

Colombia - jairo

Jairo Cuellar is one of our many producing partners based in what is colloquially known as the Coffee Capital of Colombia as well as the Specialty Coffee Paradise of Huila. There are approximately 9,000 hectares planted with coffee in the municipality of Acevedo in southern Huila, thanks to its lush landscape fed by the many streams and waterfalls that descend from the Oriental ridgelines of the Colombian Andes, as well as by the Suaza river.

Smallholder farmers in Acevedo are growing and processing the Pink Bourbon variety with excellent and dynamic results. Known for its tall stature, constant need for pruning, and lower yield, this Bourbon variety can prove to be more expensive to cultivate. The added care and higher price of production seems worth it for our producing partners because of the high-quality cup it can produce, if processed adequately and carefully.

Varietal: Pink Bourbon

Notes: Green Apple, Panela, Berries

 

ethiopia - gelana abaya

This is a Grade 1, dry processed coffee from the Gelana Abaya area, which is located in central southern Ethopia’s Gedeo Zone. It borders the Kochere Woreda and Guji zone. We are happy to offer this sweet, clean, and bright coffee.

Varietal: Heirloom

Notes: Strawberry, Blueberry, Milk Chocolate

 

Guatemala - hunapu

Our Hunapu coffee come from the highland valley of Antigua, one of the most beautiful coffee growing regions in the world, located in Guatemala’s central highlands. Hunapu is a name established by farmer Beneficio Bella Vista for a group of small producers that came together to offer one of the best Antigua coffees available. The name is derived from the locals’ name for the Agua volcano.

Varietal: Bourbon, Caturra, Catuai

Notes: Honey, Citrus, Balanced

 

honduras - belarmino contreras

Belarmino’s farm, Finca Genesis, is an 8.5 acre farm sitting at 1,500 meters above sea-level in Las Flores, Santa Barbara. There are 4,285 plants of the Parainema and Pacas varieties on his farm, harvested from January through April. Belarmino picks the coffees at peak ripeness, pulps them, and dry ferments the parchment for 24 hours. He then puts the coffee through 4 complete wash cycles before shade-drying it for 18 days, during which he rotates the coffee every 30 minutes to aid in the drying. The parainema variety produces a unique cup that can most closely be compared to Kenyan coffees. This variety was initially planted for its robust growth and disease resistance, but has also produced the last two Honduran Cup of Excellence winning lots!

Varietal: Parainema

Notes: Lime, Grapefruit, Brown Sugar

 

heatwave

The summer heat is upon us. This blend of natural and washed coffees is refreshing hot or iced. It is a perfect fuel for any and all your adventures. Heatwave is made up of a rotating selection from what is seasonally available. Currently, it consists of our Ethiopia - Genala Abaya and Papua New Guinea - Kanale.

 

papua New Guinea - kanale

This coffee comes from the highlands of Papua New Guinea (PNG). Morning fog fills the valleys of the Mountains Hagen region, and mountain peaks float above the sun—the highest reaching nearly 15,000 feet. As the fog lifts, so does the temperature. Clouds gather, and the afternoon warmth is often accompanied by fierce thunderstorms, which leave as suddenly as they appear, making room for it to start all over again. It is an ideal climate for growing coffee, but inconvenient for air travel, one of the reasons the interior of New Guinea remained relatively unknown by outsiders while airplanes were busy opening up unexplored territory elsewhere.

Varietal: Typica, Bourbon

Notes: Pineapple, Chocolate, Pear
