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!

El Recuerdo

Colombia - El Recuerdo - Lactic Process
by La Palma y El Tucan

Santa Maria

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
Varietal: Caturra
Process: Washed
Roast: Light
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.

February's Box

Ecuador - Peñaherrera - Washed Caturra

This lightly roasted coffee features a brown sugar and red rose aroma. When brewed it tastes of milk chocolate, with a creamy body and purple grape sweetness. The acidity is vibrant and the cup finishes with a gentle floral with a note of plum.

Producer - Farm: Christian Fuentes - Divino Niño
            Almicar Jativa - La Magdalena
          Servio Nicolas Montenegro Tobar - Santiago Del Rey
Altitude: 4920 - 5250 feet
Varietal: Caturra
Process: Washed
Roast: Light
Notes: Brown Sugar, Purple Grape, Plum

This coffee is an excellent example of the great potential of specialty coffee from Ecuador. It is a single-variety blend from three different farms: Divino Niño, La Magdalena, and Santiago Del Rey.

The micro-climates of Ecuador, with its high altitudes, volcanic soils, and proximity to the equator, hold the promise of yielding some of the industries most sought after flavor profiles.
