Kenya: Kangunu AA

Chocolate, tomato and grapefruit pith and a hefty mouthfeel

Coffees from Kenya are renowned for delivering the full package of coffee flavor: sweetness; spice; floral aromatics; and abundant acidity. This washed variety from Kangunu factory in Embu County, south of Mt. Kenya, shows off impressive complexity and depth. SL-28, SL-34 and Ruiru 11.

Colombia: Huila Banexport

Apple crispness and sweet, rich body.
Huila is a top region in Colombia for quality coffee and this offering is a great example of that. This coffee is produced by small-landholder farmers in Huila department, in the southwest of the country. Farmers contribute from as little as one bag to a dozen each to specialty coffee exporter, Banexport -- microlots indeed.

Roaster's note: This is the end of last year's harvest and, while it's a bit aged, stone fruit and apple notes still come through. Enjoy at a further reduced price.

 
Mexican Radio: Finca Zacamitla Negra

Sweet, smooth dark chocolate notes

Our latest offering in our Mexican Radio line of high-quality coffees from Veracruz, Chiapas or Puebla states. This coffee is all grown by Horatio Petrone on his family's Finca Zacamitla in Veracruz. Smooth chocolatey notes with bright, grape-like highlights. ¡Delicioso!

Ethiopia: Yirgacheffe Aricha Idido

ALMOST SOLD OUT

Fruity, floral, berry, and caramel with sparkling acidity.

There is nothing like an Ethiopian natural process coffee. Coffee cherry is picked and then laid out to dry whole. Unlike washed varieties where the bean is separated from the cherry and then the mucilage is rinsed off the bean, this natural drying process results in some complex and intense flavor notes. A flavorful coffee from our favorite origin.
