Cueva de los LlanosNariño, Colombia $18.25 | 12 oz bag
Since 2012, we've been working with producers all over Nariño, Colombia, to create a new supply chain that pays based on quality—resulting in unique lots and better coffee prices. Before, most of the Nariño coffees exported were offered as generic regional lots. Now, small communities of farmers are combining resources to market special lots while improving their farms. Coffee from Cueva de los Llanos is grown by members in the towns of Buesaco and Chachagüí. With notes of green apple, almond, and vanilla, it’s one of the most remarkable coffees we’ve tasted from all of Nariño.

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 La Victoria sits nestled in the quiet pine forests of Dipilto, Nicaragua—a community widely considered to produce some of the best coffees in the country.

The Idido cooperative is located just east of the small, bustling town of Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. Its members’ farms are situated throughout seven communities in some of the highest-altitude coffee growing areas in the region. We work closely with this organic cooperative year after year to select their best coffees, which are known for their sweet and delicate flavors. Look for floral, melon, and citrus notes.
Micheta Natural SundriedWest Hararge, Ethiopia $19.50 | 12 oz bag
Harar served as a hub of trade for centuries and brought recognition to Ethiopia for its coffee. The coffee that Harar is known for is grown in the semi-arid mountains in the wider region of Hararge. Coffee from this area is generally considered to be processed in a rudimentary fashion—often dried on the ground—which can translate to less-vibrant flavors. With the goal of redefining coffee from Hararge, the producers of Micheta introduced quality-focused practices like drying coffee on raised beds that resulted in a more refined profile with notes of dried date, spices, and rose water.
MpembaKayanza, Burundi $18.25 | 12 oz bag
The coffee we buy from the village of Mpemba is produced by a small, dedicated cooperative called Kazoza N'Ikawa, which means “the future is the coffee.” Founded in 2012, the co-op has produced some of the most-refined, sweetest coffees in Burundi ever since. Look for citrus and plum notes that are complemented by a honey sweetness.
RafisaWest Arsi, Ethiopia $18.50 | 12 oz bag
West Arsi is located halfway between the famous coffee-growing regions of Yirgacheffe and Hararge, but historically hasn't been recognized for its coffee. However, the high elevations in the region that border the famous Harenna forest are starting to attract attention. The Rafisa washing station in West Arsi was built in 2012, but, under new leadership this past year, the potential of coffees from the area is beginning to come to fruition. Look for notes of honeysuckle, pink grapefruit, and sugar cane.
