Ethiopia Yirgacheffe – We are pleased to offer this exceptional organic coffee, from the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, located in Gedeo. This coffee is grown at an average elevation of 2,300 meters, and exhibits all of the characteristics we love about Yirgacheffe coffees. Aromas of rose petal and tangerine. Moderate acidity, medium to light body, with a lingering honey plum like sweetness.
Guatemala Mundo Novo – A new organic arrival from our farm direct partners at Finca Nuevo Vinas, Mundo Novo is a naturally occuring hybrid between Typica and Bourbon. This varietal matures slower than most, yeilding a dense, complex cup. Aromas of meyer lemon, brown sugar, cocoa, and fava. Crisp acidity and spice, medium body, with a long finish of molasses and sweet cream butter.
Available exclusively at any of our six retail locations . . . capitol hill, queen anne, fremont, seward park, pioneer square, and olympia.
our time in guatemala was intense, disorienting, and beautiful – a bit like the place itself. here is a video montage of our time in this coffee-rich war-torn land. for further reading and evocative images – guatemala: ak-47s and bitter water.
