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.
Guatemala - Finca El Socorro - Maracaturra
This cup has a delicate orange blossom aroma and caramel flavor, with a creamy body, sparkling acidity, and white grape sweetness. A note of tangerine and honey linger in the finish.
This uncommon varietal is a combination of a giant Maragogype bean with a more traditional and sweet, lush Caturra varietal. This unique bean, via the dedication and skill of the producers of Finca El Socorro, creates a coffee that is delicate, flavorful, and sweet.
The Maracaturra varietal from El Socorro is grown around 5500 feet near the town of Palencia. After harvest the coffee is washed and processed directly on the farm. In 2011 this lot won the Guatemala Cup of Excellence Competition. El Socorro has proven to be one of the best coffee farms in Guatemala year after year.
Mexico - Zaragoza Organic
A gorgeous example of organic coffee, this cup has a sweet brown sugar aroma, round body, and juicy acidity. A rich flavor of candied pear is highlighted by a bright white grape sweetness and a note of tangerine in the finish.
This coffee from José Antonio and Venancio Castro comes to us through Crop to Cup in a partnership with Axiom Coffee Ventures. Working together, these two organizations have created a micro-lot market for small-holder farms throughout Mexico’s coffee growing region. The purpose of this market is to help these individual farmers rise up out of poverty by improving the quality of their coffee and improving their market value.
El Salvador - Pimiento
This coffee features a vanilla aroma, round body, and juicy citrus acidity. When brewed it has a note of honey and caramelized pear sweetness with a complex grapefruit-like finish.
We’ve carried Finca Los Planes as a Direct Trade coffee for several years now and each year we have worked with Sergio to bring you new and different coffees from his farm along with our traditional favorites.
El Pimiento is the newest producing lot from Finca Los Planes and we think it’s pretty special. Last year, it was featured in Fresh Cup Magazine in the article, ‘Experiments with Tradition
.” This is the first lot managed by Nena Hernandez.
Rwanda - Rubavu
This Rwandan coffee has been a runaway hit in our cupping lab! It features a heavy floral aroma, velvety body, and a juicy acidity. It has a rich flavor of port wine with a raisin-like sweetness that softens to a maple syrup finish.
This coffee is collected from some 800 smallholder farmers around the town of Rubavu in the Nyamasheke District of Rwanda. This region features a high elevation and rich volcanic soil, creating an ideal growing climate for specialty coffee. The low temperatures force the coffee cherries to mature slowly, creating a balanced and deeply sweet brewed cup.
