Quarantine Special

As a profound turn-of-the-century poet declared, “I don’t need your kiss or hug, I just chug-o-lug my coffee mug.” Let those seemingly prescient words bring us comfort as we’re asked to distance ourselves from the touch of family and friends. Bring close a warm cup of coffee, brewed from freshly-roasted specialty coffee beans, in this time of obligatory human distance.

We’re offering five single-origin coffees (including a decaf), each for the same Quarantine Special price (12oz. and 20oz. sizes available in backyard compostable bags).

Coffee will be shipped whole bean unless specified otherwise in notes at checkout (please indicate brew method if requesting ground).

Despite our readiness, our long-awaited roastery and caffe grand opening will be waited upon for a little longer. But with the roaster up and roasting we’re excited to still be able to offer our freshly-roasted coffee at a quarantine special price delivered directly to your mailbox. Because being stuck inside is bad enough; without good coffee is just … let’s not even talk about it.

We’re taking all the proper precautions at the roastery as we roast, bag and ship.

We have five single origin coffees to offer, including a decaf:
Guatemala Huehuetenango | Cafe con Mano de Mujer (SOLD OUT!)

This coffee, whose name translates to “coffee with women’s hands,” comes from the ACODIHUE co-op in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala (Read more about it here.)

Origin Guatemala
Region Huehuetenango
Co-op ACODIHUE
Variety Red Bourbon, Yellow Bourbon, Typica, Caturra, Catimor
Altitude 1200-1850 masl
Processing Method Washed
We taste Milk chocolate with subtle pomegranate sweetness

 

Guatemala Cafetores Swiss Water Process Decaf

We were pleasantly surprised by this decaf at the cupping table (post-roast tasting). It has the body and complexity of a coffee we’d be apt to enjoy regardless of its caffeine content. It comes from Antiguan estates and small holders in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala and was decaffeinated with a chemical-free process by Swiss Water.

Origin Guatemala
Region Antigua/Huehuetenango
Grade SHB EP
Variety Bourbon, Caturra, Catuai, Typica
Altitude >1600 masl
Processing Method Washed
We taste Black tea, gingerbread, orange, cardamom

 

Colombia Tolima Exelso (O)

This organically-grown coffee comes from Planadas, Tolima, Colombia, produced by Asociación de Productores Ecológicos de Planadas (ASOPEP), a cooperative of 167 coffee-producing families.

We like this coffee for its down-to-earth balance without being the least bit boring.

Origin Colombia
Region Planadas, Tolima
Co-op ASOPEP Producer’s Association
Variety Caturra, Castillo, Colombia and Typica
Altitude 1400 – 2100 masl
Processing Method Washed
We taste Chocolate, sour cherry, cinnamon, stone fruit

 

Burundi Rango

We brought this coffee in to be the first special manual brew offering in the caffe, for the slightly more adventurous coffee drinker. While it meets our general criterion of offering a well-balanced cup, it presents some atypical tasting notes that we’re really enjoying.

This coffee comes from the Gacokwe Washing Station located in the town of Rango in Burundi’s Kayanza province. The 2,000 or so coffee producers who contribute to the station own less than half a hectare of land, on average, and in addition to growing coffee also grow crops like bananas, beans, yams, taro, and cassava, both for sale and for household use.

Origin Burundi
Region Rango, Kayanza
Processor Gacokwe Washing Station
Variety Bourbon, Jackson, Mibirizi
Altitude 1650 masl
Processing Method Washed
We taste Sweetened black tea, grapefruit/lemonade/citrus, banana

 

Flores Wolo Wio (SOLD OUT!)

This coffee is an example of the green and white seal of certification not serving as the be-all for sustainably grown coffee. The nutrient-rich volcanic soil of Flores, an Indonesian island, allows for a fully organic growing process, but the farms and processor are not certified.

Wolo Wio is a blend of coffees from five neighboring towns in the Ngada District of Flores. Much of the kinship groups in these areas are matrilineal, with land being passed through women. Because of this, you see a lot more women in leadership positions at the farm and cooperative levels. Most of the coffees are processed on hand cranked or motorized depulping machines on the farm, fermentation in buckets or small tanks, and then drying on raised drying beds.

Origin Flores/Indonesia
Region Kampung Wolo Wio, Ngada District
Co-op Primavera
Variety Linie-S795
Grade Grade 1
Processing Method Washed
We taste Mild dark chocolate, muted sweetness, good body
