Incredibly skillful sorting of coffee cherries at Finca Mauritania in Santa Ana, El Salvador.
Never one to shy away from an experiment or challenge, El Salvador's Aida Batlle has perfected the traditional natural sundried method used in Ethiopia for centuries. Applying this method to the 100% Bourbon coffee from her Finca Mauritania in Santa Ana has resulted in a rare, wondrous coffee with traditional Ethiopian flavors of ripe berries, wine, and chocolate combined with a distinctive Salvadoran sweetness.
 
We've worked personally with Aida for years, and this coffee is close to our heart. We are so proud to roast Finca Mauritania Natural Sundried and bring it to you.
 
Best,
Nathan

A few weeks ago, I was part of a meeting with other coffee roasters in which one company kept referring to producers as "suppliers." In a strict definitional sense that's true, but the word "suppliers" struck me as negative. I think part of that has to do with my past—I interned in college for a...
