Enjoy your PT's coffee, knowing it was specially curated by us!
Santa Maria - Colombia
Featuring an elegant honey aroma, with hints of floral and citrus, sparkling acidity, silky mouthfeel and round body. This cup has a champagne-like flavor, with a honey sweetness and a sweet finish of white chocolate and key lime pie.
Finca Santa Maria is one of our favorite Direct Trade partners. During our visits to the farm, we have always been impressed with their level of commitment to sustainability and quality. On top of the farming initiatives, the thing that impresses us most about the farm is the family values. To Armando, the most important thing is the relationship. He stressed the importance of passing on his passion for coffee farming to his children and the benefits of a strong relationship with us, the buyers. Good management goes well beyond producing great coffee, it is about coming together with enriching experiences, family and friendship.
The growing conditions at Finca Santa Maria and the Nariño region are very unique. Located at over 6000 feet, its long hours of sunlight and hot Springs allow the coffee trees to grow in higher, colder altitudes. This leads to a bean that we value for its greater level of sweetness and acidity. Armando is also focused on innovations they have been implementing on the farm, such as irrigation, traditional processing methods and the introduction of new varietals.
Sidama Guji - Ethiopia
An elegant honeysuckle aroma with hints of lemon, a juicy acidity, and a light silky body. The citrusy tones carry into the cup with a sweetly tart flavor of lemonade rounding out to a sweet nectarine. A mild cardamom note lingers in the soft finish.
The Sidama region is known for being the most productive for coffee growing in Ethiopia. This coffee is of excellent quality due to the ideal growing conditions of the region. High altitudes, rich soil, and mild temperatures allow the coffee to mature slowly, heightening the natural sweetness and acidity of the Ethiopian Heirloom varieties.
This lot of Sidama coffee has gone through the Traditional Washed process, highlighting it's bright and citrus-like qualities.
Best of Cauca Lot 7 - Buenaventura - Colombia
This cup features a chocolate candy-like aroma, round body, and bright acidity. It features a soft note of vanilla with a Concord grape sweetness and a rich, butterscotch candy finish.
In August of 2014, PT’s Co-Founder and Green Coffee Buyer Jeff Taylor traveled to Popayan, Colombia to participate in this special regional competition, the Cauca Best Cup. It was hosted by Cafe Imports and Banexport.
As part of a group of 20 roasters from around the world, he cupped and scored the top 40 coffees from an entry list of over 200 samples. The next day the final 10 were cupped one more time to determine their rankings in quality before going to auction later that night. Jeff came away from the competition auction with the winning bids for Lot #5 and Lot #7.
The Buenaventura farm located in the Totoro municipality of Cauca and is owned and operated by Maria Teresa Paz Mellizo.
Silimakuta AAA - Sumatra, Indonesia
This Sumatran coffee features a sweet pipe tobacco aroma. When brewed it presents sophisticated black currant flavor and fig sweetness. It's delicate body fades away with notes of dark chocolate and tobacco.
Silimakuta is a small community in the Lake Toba region whose coffees have traditionally been sold as Mandheling. The cooperative operates 10 member-owned buying centers (usually just at a farmer member's home) which buy parchment at 40% moisture and handpicked before delivering to a central drying and milling center in Saribou Dolok. Silimakuta is one of the KUD Cooperative's four micro-regions, and is currently its largest volume and highest quality producer. The strong performance of Silimakuta farmers and collectors currently acts as a model for neighboring micro-regions (Purba, Pamatang Silimahuta and Dolog Silou).
