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.

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.

Last year, in our search to work with small farmers in Kenya focused on quality, the Kinyari farm caught our attention. On our most recent visit, we spent time at the Kinyari farm with owner Stephen Ruita Munyi's brother Matthew, and we are looking forward to working with these great producers. Notes of raisin, sundried tomato, and mandarin orange. Learn more$18.00
"Go big or go home" is a fitting mantra for our sudden influx of coffees from Nariño, Colombia. This year, not only did we see huge potential with small, independent producers, we also started working with Cafes Especiales—the promising cooperative based in the towns of Buesaco and Tablón de Gómez that produced this coffee. Notes of milk chocolate, nut, and black cherry. Learn more$17.25
