About

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. On the first Monday of 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 prepay and save on 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions (subscriptions will automatically renew after the last shipment unless canceled). 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!

August Offerings

The August edition of our Single Origin series comes from our friends at 3 African Sisters. This export group is based on Lake Kivu in Rwanda with a mission to improve economic opportunities for women coffee farmers by empowering them to market their coffees to the global specialty market. These coffees are unique, responsibly grown, expertly processed, and ethically traded. Please enjoy these two beautiful coffees from the Northern Province of Rwanda.

This lightly roasted coffee features a brown sugar aroma, syrupy body, and bright acidity. When brewed it has notes of cola with a raisin-like sweetness and a finish of orange marmalade.

Producer: Multiple
Farm: Coko Washing Station
Altitude: 7215 - 7545 feet

Roast: Light

Situated in the Northern Providence in the highest parts of the Gakenke District lies the Coko washing station run by a women-owned co-operative.

They use a Penagos washer which uses far less water than the traditional three disk pulpers used in Rwanda. This revolutionary processing allows them to house their co-operative on a site with very little water resources. The water used is mountain water. All the coffee here is hand picked, depulped, dry fermented for 12 hours and then wet fermented for 18 hours. The coffee is firstl shade dried and then sun dried on raised beds along the steep mountain slopes.
