We'd like to encourage customers to brew any of our coffees using any brewing method!
If you're specifically looking for coffees originally created for espresso brewing, you'll find those listed as Year-Round products. And, again, we'd definitely encourage you to consider any coffee we offer appropriate for any brewer.
Despite having not purchased coffee from the tiny nation of East Timor in the past eight years, two coffees this year changed our minds about the potential there. One of those coffees is from the community of Lacau. With some of the best altitude on the island and a predominance of Typica in the area, this lot has a clarity we have never seen in a coffee from East Timor. Look for notes of molasses, apple, and spice.

This year, torrential rains and poor weather in Bolivia led to a slightly later harvests and very low yields. Despite this challenge, we went into Bolivia’s harvest looking to expand our purchasing scope and focus. In particular, we focused on the AIPEAD cooperative in the town of Amor de Dios whose coffee shines, even with this season’s struggles. Notes of green grape, almond, and bittersweet chocolate.

We’re always on the lookout for new coffees with potential for greatness. So, despite having not purchased coffee from the tiny nation of East Timor in the past eight years, we were eager to try coffees from Lacau and Huapu after hearing an importer rave about them. At once vibrant and syrupy, these coffees are like nothing we’ve ever tasted from East Timor. In Huapu, look for notes of maple syrup, ripe fruit, and white pepper.
