Cupping Room Collection | Kenya Windrush Estate

The Cupping Room Collection are unique limited production coffees personally selected by our roasting team. The Kenya Windrush is shade grown under Eucalyptus and Gravellier trees in rich red volcanic soil between Mt. Kenya and the Aberdare Range. Once picked, the coffee is processed on site using the traditional washed method, which produces a higher acidy, clarity and consistency in the cup. Windrush Estate cultivates only SL28 and SL34 varietals, which are highly prized due to intense flavor. These varietals were carefully selected by a research organization in the 1930’s because of their ability to flourish in the harsh climate...

Fresh From the Roastery :: Brazil Sitio Rocinha

Grown at Sitio Rocinha by Demétrio Flaviano de Oliveira, this coffee is selectively harvested, only when the fruits are ripe. Harvested by hand over cloths to protect the coffee from coming in contact with the ground, it is taken to the patio for drying on the same day.   Demétrio is the third generation of coffee growers in his family, following his mother and grandfather, who bought the farm in the 1960’s. He is dedicated to producing gourmet coffees that are sustainably grown, with a focus on natural processing and preserving and respecting the environment. Sourcing NotesBy Pete Maskiell, Caffè...

Leone Blend - A Unique Light Roast Coffee

When Stefano began working at the roastery 4 years ago, his unofficial title was facchino, the all-purpose go to person for all the jobs that needed doing. Being Emanuele’s brother meant that he would start at the bottom, work hard, gain knowledge about coffee, and prove himself. And although he did these jobs with enthusiasm, he had his eye on the big beautiful red roaster. Stefano’s first origin trip to Peru in 2015 was a memorable trip for many reasons – the food, the coffee farmers and their families, and the coffees. Here he discovered the Peru Condor Puna, which...

New Single Origin Ethiopia Guji Kercha

Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee and is the native home of the Coffea Arabica plant. Grown in an area that has traditionally processed coffee using a natural (dry) method, the quality of this washed coffee is exceptional. Because of growing conditions and other environmental factors, these coffees have a tendency toward floral and fruity aromas, and our new 2017 Limited Edition Ethiopia Guji Kercha lives up to this reputation.      This new Single Origin coffee is an example of Ethiopian coffee at its best. A gentle coffee with sweet and complex undertones, you'll experience notes of green melon,...
