Concepción HuistaJacaltenango, Huehuetenango, Guatemala $18.25 | 12 oz bag
Western Guatemala’s high mountains are home to what are considered some of the most interesting high-quality coffees in all of Latin America—and this is true of the coffee from the CODECH cooperative in Concepción Huista. We focus our sourcing on a few community-based associations within the cooperative that are known for good on-farm processing at high elevations. The resulting coffee pops with notes of Fuji apple, apricot, and raspberry.
Decaf UrcuninaNariño, Colombia $18.50 | 12 oz bag
Since 2012, we have been working with farmers in communities around Nariño, Colombia, to create a new supply chain that pays based on quality. The result is an increase in unique, traceable lots and better coffee prices for farmers. Since its inception in 2012, the Urcunina group in the community of La Florida has grown the most in membership, volume, and quality. Because of these achievements, we elected to make a special decaffeinated version of their coffee processed at a plant in Colombia that uses a derivative from sugarcane to remove caffeine. The resulting cup is sweet and complex with notes of maple syrup, apricot, and graham cracker.
Finca El PuenteMarcala, Honduras $18.25 | 12 oz bag
We met Moisés Herrera and Marysabel Caballero, owners of Finca El Puente, in 2005. Since then, they have become like family, and their constant pursuit of coffee perfection inspires us year after year. From experimental coffee varieties and growing techniques to unique ways of processing, they push the boundaries of coffee quality. This lot—mostly made up of the Catuai variety—has rich notes of cocoa, accented by a brown-sugar sweetness, finishing with a crisp, toasted nut character.
Finca La Victoria – Maragogipe VarietyDipilto, Nicaragua $18.50 | 12 oz bag
Discovered in Brazil during the late 19th century, the Maragogipe variety has become well-known for its enormous bean size and big flavors. Though its popularity has waned, many Nicaraguan producers have kept up the tradition of cultivating this unique variety. We’re excited to present this lot produced by the Lovo family of Finca La Victoria. It is one of the best examples of Maragogipe we’ve tasted in years. Look for flavors of toffee and tamarind with a nutty finish.
Finca MauritaniaSanta Ana, El Salvador
$19.50| 12 oz bag
Aida Batlle’s 100% Bourbon variety coffee from the northeast slope of the Santa Ana volcano is a true classic. Cultivated with the utmost care and craftsmanship by the most dedicated producer we know, coffee from Finca Mauritania reveals its pedigree through immaculately clean and perfectly balanced sweetness and brightness. Look for notes of sweet almond and apple over a light and creamy body.
OzolotepecOaxaca, Mexico $18.25 | 12 oz bag
Ozolotepec means “Hill of the Tiger” in Zapotec, one of the indigenous languages of Oaxaca, Mexico. This coffee is from a newly formed cooperative in the community of San Francisco Ozolotepec, where members are primarily growing the traditional Typica variety. With the high elevations from this part of Oaxaca, this coffee is complex and sweet with notes of red apple, almond butter, and pecan.
SipacapaSan Marcos, Guatemala $18.25 | 12 oz bag
Since 2013 we’ve worked with organic coffee producers surrounding the village of Sipacapa in Guatemala. The village is located in San Marcos—a high-elevation region in the western part of the country known historically for its dry climate, but not for exceptional coffee. This has changed in the last few decades as coffee associations throughout the region have increasingly focused on planting and developing quality coffee. This coffee is a shining example of those efforts; we taste blackberry, simple syrup, and stone fruit.
