This is the coffee of El Aguacate 100% Pacas microlot from Finca Santa Rita in El Salvador.
Clear cherry note reminiscent of cherry pie, less tart, every bit as enjoyable with a gentle middle-note cocoa with a smooth, clean, round body. This coffee is a real winner!

This coffee from Fazenda São João in Sul de Minas Gerais, Brasil is a microlot of 100% Bourbon heirloom varietal. With notes of tobacco, dark cocoa, and a thick body, this is not like other coffees from Brazil that we've carried in a long time. It roasts beautifully, and would make a fine single origin espresso on its own. Try it today!

This is a ZERO DEFECT coffee from the Yirgacheffe coffee region of Ethiopia. 6 minutes per 10kg batch is given to hand sorting this grade 1 washed coffee, making it a supremely clean heirloom coffee from the beloved beverage's original place of birth. What does this mean to you? Well, dear coffee fanatic, it means that when you brew your mug from these beans, you are in for an exquisite coffee drinking experience. This cup is fantastically floral, with a black-tea like tannin, and bergamot-like citrus. I highly recommend a 5 minute pour-over method (like Chemex, Technivorm, BonaVita), which really seems to make this coffee sing. The body turns into something reminding us of Kool-Aid, and the citrus sweetens and rounds out into reminding me of sweet orange into a very soft clean floral finish. Enjoy this with a scone, a muffin, or iced on a sunny day.
- Altitude – 2,000+ meters

Heavily fruited, with notes of strawberry, raspberry, and grape. Strong notes of cocoa and tobacco with a heavy body, and a cedar like tannic finish. This coffee is a great example of how stellar a natural Sidama can be. Use a manual pour over brew method, with a high dose to really highlight the fruit, or a normal dose to achieve the optimum in taste balance. One of the best purchases you'll make this year.
- Altitude – 1,750 - 1,800 meters
- Processing – dried on raised drying beds
- Varietals – Sidama Heirloom varietals
- Region – Sidama, Ethiopia
The ideal breakfast blend. This is one easy-to-drink blend that has been affectionately referred to as "the best cup of coffee that I have ever had," by an anonymous customer. Named for a good friend who was the inspiration for this outstanding blend, the label for your new favorite mug blend is adorned with his mug. You'd better buy two.. you'll want to share it.
Comprised of specific proportions of Central and South American coffees, this cup is sure to please.
A shot of Black Torpedo is elegant and refined, with notes of dark chocolate, stone fruits, spice, light tannins, a round body and a lingering finish. It works equally well on its own or in milk. The flavor complexity is balanced by the experiential tactile complexity as the flavors progress over the palate.
Complex enough for the aficionado, yet approachable enough for the novice. A truly excellent espresso.
50% Finca Santa Paula Choban Guatemala

This is a coffee from several small holder coffee farms around the town of Zongolica, the location of the Mountain WAter Processing plant. This coffee is extremely aromatic, with notes of orange sweetness, with plum acidity and body, with a walnut like background. This is a gem of a coffee that isn't just "good, for a decaf".. it's a legitimately delicious coffee. Great for caffeine hiatuses, or evening conversations with friends. (or any time.. really!)
