Single Origin Subscription

Description

Purchase

Welcome to our Single Origin Subscription - Roaster's Choice!

Coffee offerings are always changing as new crops come in and existing harvests sell out, so we designed this subscription to help you access the best of our single origin selection. Each month you will receive two 12 ounce bags of single origin coffee selected by members of our Green Buying and Quality Control Team, Jeff and Maritza Taylor. Jeff and Maritza spend much of the year traveling to our Direct Trade farms to work with producers on the picking and processing of our coffees before returning to taste them on our cupping table as we develop our roasts. You will find no one with a better knowledge of our coffee than these two.

Choose between a monthly recurring subscription* or prepaid 3-month (6 bag), 6-month (12 bag), or 12-month (24 bag) subscriptions. Each box will come lovingly packaged with detailed information, images, and brew notes for each coffee, and shipping is included in the price. Enjoy your PT's coffee knowing it was specially curated by us!

Our Single Origin Subscription roasts and ships out on the first Monday of every month.

*Monthly recurring subscriptions will be charged per shipment. Cancelations must be placed by the 15th of the month prior to the next shipment.



February’s Offerings

Finca Las Mercedes' dedication to environmentally and socially sustainable practices is commendable. They continually give back to their community, constructing and supplying a school and library, providing food for a nursing home, and supporting the local soccer team. Through our Direct Trade Partnership, PT’s Coffee has pitched in by providing medicines for the local clinic and soccer balls for the local team. The clinic serves more than 10 communities that surround Las Mercedes.

Colombia - La Palma y El Tucan - El Porvenir

This lightly roasted coffee from Colombia is truly extraordinary, featuring a sugary and fruity aroma, round body, and slightly tart acidity. When brewed, it has a wonderful flavor of fruit candy and watermelon sweetness. The finish is bright and lively with notes of raspberry and Concord grape.

Producer Miguel Castro Cubillos harvests only the ripest cherries from his farm and brings them to the mill at La Palma y El Tucan. This coffee goes through a special lactic fermentation that imparts a spectacularly fruity and sweet flavor profile.

Colombia - Finca Villa Loyola - Las Lajas

This lightly roasted coffee features a sweet sugar cane aroma, syrupy body, and bright acidity. When brewed this coffee has sugary marshmallow flavor and canned peach sweetness with a finish of fresh cantaloupe.

One of our favorite farms, Finca Villa Loyola has been a Direct Trade partner since 2011. Following a 1st Place win in the 2008 Colombia Cup of Excellence, Villa Loyola’s story has been one of impressive growth and improvement.

Padre Joe believes in organic farming and has taken measures to plant varietals that are hardy as well as having desirable flavor characteristics within the specialty coffee world. When he took over in 2012, the Las Lajas lot had just been stumped and was primed for his creative approach. He had the lot planted with the Colombia F4 varietal, a tree that can withstand the current roya outbreak without the need for fungicides, while producing a deeply sweet cup profile.

This lot also benefits from the improved conditions and impressive techniques used throughout Villa Loyola’s farms. New reservoirs have been built to irrigate the farm during dry periods in the changing climate. The soil is organically engineered at Villa Loyola with vermicompost, fertilizer from the farm’s organically raised cattle, and added minerals from volcanic ash taken from the nearby Galeras Volcano. Once harvested, the coffee is dried in a single layer on raised beds with excellent air circulation and protection from rainfall.

The result is this first harvest from Loté Las Lajas. We are immensely pleased with the results and look forward to it becoming one of the preeminent lots from Finca Villa Loyola.

El Salvador - Finca Las Mercedes - El Pepinal 1

A floral and zesty aroma hints at the brightness of this cup. The buttery, silky body is balanced nicely by a crisp acidity. You’ll find a strong toffee flavor and sweetness of pears in syrup before finishing with a light white grape juice note.

The meticulous processing and attention to detail has produced stellar results for the bourbon variety from El Pepinal 1. Six years ago, El Pepinal 1 stood at the top of the list as 1st place winner in the 2006 El Salvador Cup of Excellence. We have been thrilled to be her roasting partner ever since. We take great pride in working with exceptional coffee producers and Las Mercedes is one of those farms that rises to the top of the quality list every year.


El Salvador - Finca Las Merdedes - La Avila Double Soak

This coffee features a mellow aroma of caramel and vanilla, citric acidity and round body. The brewed cup features a caramelized, roasted marshmallow flavor and deep red plum sweetness. A juicy, bright note of blood orange is present in the finish.

With the Double Soak method, the coffee is moved into a special tank after fermenting to soak for an additional 24-hours. The tank is then emptied, and the process is repeated, filling the tank again and letting the coffee rest for 18-24 additional hours. After the second soak, the coffee is moved to the drying patios before being packaged and shipped to us.

In 2012 Lucia de Ortiz, manager of the farm for the family Ortiz, sampled the coffee and was very pleased with the results. Out of curiosity, she sent the coffee to be evaluated by a panel of cuppers at the Consejo, or quality control lab for El Salvador. Ironically, the cuppers were so impressed with the coffee that without Lucia’s knowledge they submitted it to the 2012 El Salvador Coffee of the Year competition, where it took 1st Place.
