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.
FRANK!$18.50 | 12 oz box
Let’s be frank. Since the release of our first Transparency Report in 2009, we have continued to dig deeper, going beyond the simple “yes or no” of certifications to identify and understand the complex sustainability challenges of our supply chain. A fundamental issue is the ability of farmers to make a profit growing coffee—and understanding the ways we can address that issue. With this limited-release blend of coffees from Honduras and Kenya, we explore what it means to have transparency about the prices farmers receive and how that transparency can transform supply chains. Look for notes of clementine, green grape, and cane sugar.
Nana’s Blend$15.25 | 12 oz bag
Nana’s in Durham, NC, was one of our very first partners when we began roasting coffee in 1995. When chef-owner Scott Howell let us know he was closing his beloved restaurant, we decided to pay homage to our 23-year partnership with a limited run of Nana’s Blend—a tribute to the decades of Howell’s inventive cuisine.
This coffee will only be available through September. If you love Nana’s Blend, you’ll love our year-round offering, Forty-Six.
Yemen – Mohsen Zaid – Natural SundriedDhamar, Yemen $22.95 | 4 oz bag
We’re offering this coffee for the first time as a result of a partnership between Yemeni coffee exporter Mokha Route and Mohsen Zaid.

Zaid cultivates a small lot of 1,000–1,200 coffee trees in fertile volcanic soil on the family farm in Kuraba—a high-elevation village in the valley of Bani Fadhl. This is Typica Udaini variety coffee grown at 1,900–2,100 meters and irrigated from a natural spring. Look for notes of dried berry, fig, and spice.
