We just dropped three spectacular coffees.
Keep an eye out for the Colombia San Agustin Reserve. We purchased this lot from a brand new station in San Agustin, which will be the go-to drop off point for over one hundred farms in the area. This reserve is a beautiful selection from three farms owned by Eliecer Guatin, Marino Ortega, and Leonel San Pablo.
We have another stunning washed Ethiopian coffee, Dumerso of Yirgacheffe. The Dumerso Cooperative was established in 1975 and became one of the 23 coops represented by the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU) in 2002. Big fruit aromatics and a cup full of peaches and apricot, balanced sweetness and clean finish.
Our third coffee is another delightful Kenyan coffee, Gikanda Gichathaini. South of Mt. Kenya and east of the Aberdare Range, Gichithaini processes cherry from 897 small-scale farmers in the Nyeri district. The factory is part of the Gikanda Cooperative established in 1996 alongside esteemed Kangocho and Ndaroini mills. Over the years, Gichanthaini has received multiple awards for quality and boasts some of the nicest milling infrastructure of all the region’s factories. In the cup? Old-fashioned strawberry preserves and passionfruit. Yes, please.
We’re also saying farewell to two Guatemalan coffees this week. Until the next harvest, Chuito and Pompeya will be off the menu. If you’re looking for something similar to Chuito and Pompeya, check out our Guatemala Antigua Cadejo. It’s a classic Guatemalan coffee and exceptionally smooth, with notes of fresh cream and caramel.
We’ll be french pressing these new coffees at the main bar and will be featuring them at the Front Bar as filter coffee and espresso. See you soon!
