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!
Colombia - El Recuerdo - Lactic Process
by La Palma y El Tucan
This lightly roasted coffee features a fruity, candy-like aroma. When brewed its body is creamy, with notes of poached pears, a watermelon sweetness, and bright acidity. The finish is sweet with a flavor of purple grape and fruit punch candy.
Producer: Alvaro Ovalle
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.
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
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.
Peru - Finca TASTA - Natural
This lightly roasted coffee features a caramel and tropical fruit aroma. When brewed it tastes of candied pecan, with a velvety body, juicy acidity, and caramelized pineapple sweetness. The finish has notes of cocoa powder and a hint of guava candy.
Producer: Edith Meza
Farm: Finca TASTA
Altitude: 4600 feet
Varietal: Red Caturra, Yellow Caturra, Catimor, Typica
Notes: Caramel, Caramelized Pineapple, Guava Candy
In 2013 Finca TASTA began experimenting with different coffee processes and by 2014 began producing Honey and Natural processed coffees. They are the first coffee farm in the region to provide benefits to their employees and are working to educate other farmers in the region about sustainable farming practices.
