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.
El Salvador - Los Planes El Matazano
Dessert in a cup! An aroma of caramel sauce, crisp acidity, silky mouthfeel and creamy body. A candied note of butterscotch is complimented by a red apple sweetness and a pomegranate-like finish.
Over the last decade, El Matazano has become one of our favorite micro-lots. It is a beautiful example of the Pacamara variety and one of the first lots we ever featured from Finca Los Planes. Husband and wife producers Sergio and Isabel Ticas grow this coffee at the highest elevation on their farm, over 5200 feet. Higher elevations tend to have cooler nights which slows coffee cherry maturation, creating a deeper sweetness in the processed bean. The Pacamara varietal is a hybrid of the traditional and flavorful Pacas variety and the giant, high production Maragogype variety and was first bred in El Salvador in 1958. It's large cherries produce a coffee that when roasted properly feature complex citrus notes and a creamy body.
Earlier this year Jeff and Maritza Taylor and their young son Phoenix visited Sergio and Isabel on their farm near the border of Honduras. To learn more about Finca Los Planes, the coffees they grow, and their family of workers, you can read Jeff’s Trip Report here
. This is a truly special farm and a relationship we plan to keep for many years to come.
Brazil - Rainha Natural
An aroma of baker’s chocolate, round body and juicy acidity. A note of caramel and black cherry sweetness in the cup give way to a deeply sweet black grape and toffee finish.
This Yellow Bourbon is carefully handpicked and processed the same day. The Natural process consists of the coffee cherries being sun dried on the bean. This creates a more full-bodied coffee with a smooth acidity and sweetness that is more pronounced than other processes.
Kenya - Gachatha AB
This is a classic Kenyan coffee with a peachy aroma, bright citric acidity, and round body. The cup features a note of mandarin orange, complimented by a peach-like sweetness and a sugary creme brûlée finish.
Situated in the central Nyeri District of Kenya, the Gachatha Factory sits in the fertile foothills of Mt. Kenya and the Aberdare Range. This region is commonly referred to as the home of Kenyan coffee with a history of producing high-quality harvests.
With its deep and fertile soil rich in organic matter and ideal climate, this area is perfect for growing the highly prized SL-28 and SL-34 coffee tree varietals. During the harvesting months, farmers pick the ripest cherries and bring them to the factory daily. There the coffee undergoes the traditional Washed process before sun drying on raised beds.
Colombia - El Paimo
This Colombian coffee has a pleasant dark chocolate aroma, juicy acidity, and velvety body. The cup features a rich note of plum and black grape sweetness that finishes with a decedent note of dark chocolate covered mixed berries.
Coffee farming in this remote region south of Huila, Colombia is an art that has been passed down through generations. Lower yielding than other plantations, the high-quality coffee from the El Paimo farm is harvested by Gustavo Hoyos Magin and his family, usually with the help of neighbors. The coffee undergoes the traditional Washed process, fermenting under water between 12 and 18 hours before being sun-dried on the patio.
