Guatemalan Fraijanes Premium Flat
Finca De Dios ML "
Sinfonia"

An awesome super fresh ML Guat offering. Buddies with our friend Edwin this is one cool farm and an awesome tasting microlot.

Tasting Notes:

A little thinner bodied than our traditional Huehue lots but the tones are real similar - light roasts produce a lot of floral brightness and light fruit notes (almost reminicent of a nice Costa) mixing with a subtle very sweet malty note - a great morning brew - darker roasts will produce more body similar to the Huehues - very clean non roasty dark-roast beans - you get a lot of the sweet malty tones and very smooth even decently into 2nd crack - a very stand up bean at almost any roast level.

Roasting Notes:
Easy to roast; you’ll get a great cup at most roast levels. Lighter roasts accent the fruitier brightness, deeper levels deliver smooth, rich chocolate malty flavors and a hint of smokiness - awesome and clean dark roast notes.


Similar to Edwins farm, De Dios is a model of sustainability and treats its workers better than 99% of other farms in the region; providing education, infrastructure and medical care.

Almost forty years ago, a horse lover bought the farm with the intent of lodging his horses. A few years later, he was transferred because of work reasons. His daughter, who remained in Guatemala, was left in charge of the farm. She started to tend the few hectares of coffee that the farm had and planted most of the farm with coffee, with the exception of the natural forests.

Two years ago, after inheriting her piece of the original farm, she proceeded to name it Finca de Dios, in memory of her father who had dedicated his land to God. Since then they have been building the necessary infrastructure, which her part did not have, including a wet mill. Even though small in comparison to most of the big coffee farms, we agree with the saying that says that some of the best things in life come in small packages.

Kenya AA Kiamabara

Kenya Nyeri Kiamabara GrainPro coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Kiamabara Factory (wet mill) in Nyeri County, Kenya. The Mugaga Farmers Co-operative Society manages the Kiamabara Factory, which processes coffee from members who generally cultivate approximately 250 coffee trees on half-acre plots.

Tasting Notes:
This is an excellent classically bright Kenyan with great body even at a lighter roast. There are herbal hints and notes of black walnut in this cup. A very bright cup, pretty sweet and clean as can be - an excellent example of a top notch Kenyan. The AA screen on this coffee is very nice - known as a top lot - this is the nicest screen from this operation.

Roasting Notes:
Medium roast makes the brightness cleaner and more balanced with the molasses coming through. We prefer it just into 2nd crack to highlight the molasses flavor.

Indonesian RFA Org. Balinese Kintamani Natural

A very unique overly fermented (very fruity) cup of joe. Closer to a natural Ethiopian than other Indonesian coffee. Bali is a tiny island– actually, a submerged volcano peak - just off the east coast of Java, with many small coffee farms. The farmers who grow Kintamani Natural belong to cooperative organizations known as Subak Abian (SA) founded on a Hindu philosophy known as “Tri Hita Karana” (the three causes of happiness). SA co-ops foster community in agricultural, social and religious activities, and have been certified Organic since 2008. Pesticides are never used on their coffee farms, and fertilizers are 100% organic. New 2014/15 crop!

Tasting Notes:
The cup is extraordinarily exotic and unique with a rich, buttery mouthfeel, while retaining Indonesia’s full-bodied, savory character. It features super-intense, brandyish fruit flavors of plum and sweet cherry at lighter roasts; darker roasts develop much heavier body with a spicy, smoky twist.

Roasting Notes:
An easy roaster that’s exceptionally versatile, roast Bali “Kitamani Natural” any way you’d like; slow or quick, from first crack to French, you’ll get very unique and terrific flavor!

Brazil Bob-O-Link  Nature Friendly  Natural PB (Mokka)

New 2014/15 Crop!! A bit delayed upon its arrival but well worth the wait! 

This is a Mokka style, smaller natural peaberry. This is one unique and very tasty Brazil. Brazil Peaberries are rare, and this offering is even rarer this could very well be the only Mokka style peaberry out of Brazil. 

Tasting Notes: A very unique cup of Brazil and always one of my favorites! Medium bodied - sweet with a little bit of acidity (especially for a Brazil) - This cup holds true to the Mokka profile; nice crisp fruit tones balanced with a bakers chocolate undertone - very nice! Crisp, clean and fresh as can be. 

Roasting Notes: This coffee is a very versatile roaster but very different from light to dark, a little lighter will accentuate the fruity acidic notes and sweetness of the cup but the darker chocolate notes will just be a hint - right before the second crack was perfectly balanced and nice - darker roasts will be a lot stronger and less fruity of a cup but has nice chocolate tones and still very enjoyable.

2014 Mexican Org. Terruno Nayarita Washed Reserve

This is a farm that holds a special place in our hearts. Gathered around an extinct volcano, Cerro San Juan, a committed group of 260 cooperative coffee farmers are working together to produce arguably the best coffee in Mexico. Terruño Nayarita coffees come from heirloom trees and the word ‘Terruño’ means ‘homestead’. These are farmers that take great pride in their coffee. This is the new 2013 crop! Used and won as a single origin espresso in the Mexican barista championship This is the top screen-size/grade from the Terruno Nayarita Co-op. San Christobal Importers takes great care to find and produce an excellent coffee, making sure farmers use safe, sustainable shade techniques and provide a fair wage to the workers. Check out their webpage; San Christobal. You can see the quality in the beans. Lighter bodied, a super smooth finish, a hint of brightness, and a sweet caramel tone. Similar in character to Island coffees. Can be roasted up to a full city +, we think its best a little lighter.

Tasting Notes:
A very cool and unique Mexican coffee. A little fuller bodied than most years, good sweetness and a bit of a floral caramel note. A bit lower acidity than previous crops which tends to make it shine at a little fuller roast level. The caramel notes tend to turn a bit more chocolaty close to the second crack.

Roasting Notes:
I would shoot for right before the second crack to just into it - a little bit of a rougher cup into second crack but nice chocolate notes with just a hint of a floral aspect. A bit sweeter and smoother right before the second crack but not quite as chocolaty.

Brazil Fazenda Aurea Natural

Our Fazenda Aurea coffee is sourced from twenty coffee farms located in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Aurea is located in Alto Paranaiba in the Cerrado Mineiro region, which is known for its optimal weather conditions for producing coffee. Producers from Fazenda Aurea have an excellent infrastructure that includes seven harvesting machines, suspended covered patios, dryer machines and mills to process natural and semi-wash coffee. Once coffee is dried, it is transported to a warehouse located in Pocos de Caldas where high-tech sorting machines are used to ensure an excellent export preparation.

Tasting Notes: The aroma is nutty and sweet. The texture is very smooth and silky and the body is medium. Starts very smooth and sweet then the middle has some great bakers chocolate and citrus notes. It ends a bit dry like roasted peanuts and lingers a little.

Roasting Notes: This coffee is easy to roast, I would avoid the real light roasts. Try extending the roast to build some body and darker tones, a shorter roast will excentuate the sweetness and crispness of the cup.
