Tasting Notes: Vanilla, Plum, Watermelon Candy
Notes on the Beans: It’s been a while since we’ve served a Costa Rica, but we’re back with a coffee perfect for summertime. This coffee features a sweet undertone and a slight plum acidity throughout. Wondering about that watermelon candy flavor note? It provides a great finish that reminds us of candy store nostalgia. The area of Costa Rica where this coffee is farmed, the San José province, values solidarity and sustainability. Its local cooperatives prioritize the welfare of their associates, families, and communities, providing technical support to the farmers and investing in solutions to common issues encountered on coffee farms.
Brewing Recommendations: Chemex or Stagg X at 203℉

Notes on the Beans: This bean is true to its Ethiopia roots. We’re excited about the old-school blueberry flavor note which is one that often gets people hooked on specialty coffee. This coffee is grown on the westernmost Indonesian island of Sumatra, an area that accounts for some of the most unique coffee flavors in the world. This region also features lots of social initiatives designed to protect smallholder farmers and beans are certified organic and fair trade via the Ethiopia Coffee Exchange (ECX).

Notes on the Beans: For our house drip coffee, we like to go with something that is familiar from season to season, but stands apart with something unique. This season our drip coffee features a unique flavor palette perfect for summer that calls to mind eating a banana split. If you haven’t tried this one yet, we highly recommend you give it a try! This coffee is farmed by the Coffee Cooperative of the Coast as a part of Fair Trade Columbia, ensuring sustainable production. It’s grown in a unique way, using agroforestry, or overstory shade, in conjunction with the natural Caribbean Sea climate, to protect the farmlands and provide a unique environment for growing. Social services are provided to growers in this community.
