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!

The result of this meticulous process has resulted in an exquisite cup that was recognized by the international judges in the 2013 Guatemala Cup of Excellence with a 4th Place finish.profile.

The Lagunita lot returns in a washed process. Grown just below the high elevation of the famous El Matazano lot, La Lagunita is situated near a beautiful mountain lagoon on the Los Planes estate. The Bourbon coffee that grows there benefits from plentiful irrigation and cool, humid temperatures.

Farm: El Recuerdo via La Palma y El Tucán
Altitude: 5300 feet
Process: Lactic Fermentation
Notes: Poached Pears, Watermelon, Fruit Punch Candy
With the help of the La Palma picking team, only the ripest cherries from El Recuerdo are harvested and brought to the mill at La Palma y El Tucán. This coffee goes through a special lactic fermentation which imparts a spectacularly fruity and sweet flavor profile.
Colombia - Finca Santa Maria - Caturra
This lightly roasted coffee features a warm vanilla aroma. When brewed it has a round body and citric acidity, with a note of apple pie, and white grape sweetness. The finish is sweet and bright like a sweet lime.
Producer: Armando Benavides Portilla
Farm: Finca Santa Maria
Altitude: 6069 feet
Notes: Vanilla, Apple Pie, Sweet Lime
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 we value for its great level of sweetness and acidity. Armando Benavides is focused on innovations they have been implementing on the farm, such as irrigation, traditional processing methods, and the introduction of new varietals.
