Panama – Elida | Process: Honey | Altitude: 1,800m

As an equatorial country located along the “bean belt”, Panama has a desirable climate for cultivating coffee plants. This honey processed coffee was sourced from Boquete in Chiriquí province. High elevations, rich, volcanic soil coupled with a cool climate and a significant amount of fog and mist during the dry season creates stellar coffees. The coffee trees are surrounded by virgin-native cloudy rain forest, and because of the cool temperatures at night, it takes 2 to 3 years longer than the average coffee tree before these trees begin to produce, and coffee cherries ripen up to a month later than lower-grown coffees, resulting in a denser, more flavorful bean.
Dynamic and delicate, this coffee is bursting with sugar cane sweetness and hints of hazelnut. Silky with a chocolate finish.

Ethiopia - Oromia - Guji | Process: Natural | Altitude: 2,100m

The Guji region where our beans come from is one of the zones of the Oromia region in southern Ethiopia known for producing some amazing natural coffees, which showcase extremely fruit forward characteristics. Peaberry is a name given to a very specific shape of bean, resulting from a natural mutation in which only a single bean is formed inside the coffee cherry, instead of two. They lack the familiar flat side that normal beans have, and are rounder, smaller and denser than a standard bean. This natural mutation occurs in only about 5% of the world's coffee, and peaberries are often prized for their more intense flavors and pronounced sweetness in the cup.
Our coffee was roasted to a light medium level to accentuate its bright fruity profile and exceptional floral flavors. Rich in fragrance, with a soft citrus acidity and smooth mouthfeel, vibrant nuances of mango, plum, and orange zest intertwine with hints of honey to deliver an exquisite experience with a delicate sweet floral aftertaste.

Panama – Chiriqui | Process: Black Winey (Natural) | Variety: Caturra & Typica | Altitude: 1,500m

European immigrants brought coffee to Panama when they settled in the region in the late 19th century. The first area where these early European settlers planted coffee was the province of Chiriquí – meaning Valley of the Moon in the language of the native people that once inhabited this region. The province remains one of main coffee-producing regions in Panama today.
Black Winey process is where very ripe cherries (darker and riper than is typically picked) are left to dry on raised beds with the fruity pulp still intact. This results in an incredibly complex, fruit-driven, juicy-bodied coffee with winey flavors. Featuring tantalizing flavours of peach, plum, melon and blueberry jam, this light-medium roasted coffee boasts a full juicy body, medium acidity and winey aftertaste.

Colombia - Huila | Process: Natural | Variety: Geisha (Microlot) | Altitude: 1,750m

There are few countries more famous for coffee production than Colombia. And within Colombia, Huila, a mountainous region in the southwest with rich volcanic soils and lush climate, is the largest specialty coffee producing region. It is not only known for the quantity of coffee it produces, but also for the incredible quality.
Huila regularly produces Cup of Excellence-winning lots. And in 2013, it received Denomination of Origin status for coffee, which is on par with the status awarded to champagne, Roquefort cheese, and other food and beverages with unique, location-specific characteristics. Natural processed and roasted to light-medium level, these 100% geisha, microlot beans offer an enticing aroma, with bright acidity and a silky mouthfeel. Delicate yet complex, this coffee boasts a sweet, fruity profile with notes of Kyoho grapes and wild tropical fruits, followed by a floral finish.

Indonesia - Lintong - Lake Toba (Triple Picked) | Process: Wet hulled | Variety: Rasuna / Catimor | Altitude: 1,300m

Coffee cultivation in Indonesia holds a 300-year-old history, which is closely related to the Dutch colonial rule. Today, it is one of the top five coffee producing countries in the world. Lintong coffees originate from Sumatra which is among the country’s best known coffee producing regions located in the west end of the archipelago, and are named after the District of Lintongnihuta where they are grown. This region lies southwest of Lake Toba, which is one of the world’s deepest inland bodies of water. The land in this region rises to a high plateau, providing the altitude necessary for Arabica cultivation.
The coffee is processed by wet hulling, a method that is unique to Indonesia, which involves hulling the parchment off the bean at roughly 30-40% moisture content, as opposed to the customary 10%-12% in traditional wet-processing. This results in a distinctive flavor profile with a full body, low acidity and concentrated flavors, garnished with a spicy finish. Deep, complex, sweetly pungent, this coffee features layered notes of stone fruits, raisins, malt, and dark chocolate and spice flavors not found in any other coffee, complemented by a richness that lingers on the back of the palate. The astonishing complexity and striking range of sensations create an exotic and intense sensorial experience.

Bolivia - Caranavi - Finca Arcangel | Process: Coco Natural | Variety: Caturra | Altitude: 1,710m

Coffee production in Bolivia is, and has always been small, leaving it as a minor player on the world stage. In Bolivia, specialty coffee is grown at an altitude of 1,200 to 2,000 metres above sea level and over 90% the production is centred in the Yungas region and the province of Caranavi. The Yungas possesses ideal conditions for growing exceptional coffee, including nutrient-rich soil, high elevation and consistent wet and dry seasons. However, as a land-locked country and one of the poorest in South America, Bolivia has faced many challenges that have led to a significant decrease in coffee production over the past decade. Fortunately quality-conscious producers have started to emerge in recent years and, with them, some spectacular coffees. Natural processed and roasted to light-medium level, this coffee is clean, medium-bodied and aromatically sweet. Fruity flavors of Kyoho grapes and pineapple, and overtones of port wine and honeycomb grow in intensity as the cup cools.

El Salvador was once the fourth largest coffee producer worldwide and despite a decline in production due to various struggles that had affected the coffee industry, it has been gaining reputation as a renowned specialty coffee origin in recent years. Coffee from Finca Vista Hermosa is grown in the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range under a natural shade provided by native tree species, where the six-month dry season helps trees concentrate sugars in their cherry. Honey processed and roasted to medium level, this coffee offers a natural sweetness and an enticing aroma of caramelized nuts with notes of almond and chocolate, followed by gentle floral undertones.
