Last year we had the privilege of sharing the same coffee processed three different ways from Don Teó’s farm, Finca Las Marías, and we are stoked to be able to do it again this year!

For the washed lot, the cherry was harvested, immediately de-pulped, and then the fruit was quickly fermented off the seed before drying. This is the traditional way of processing coffee in Central America and results in what we’d consider the clearest expression of terroir and inherent quality within the seed itself. Fresh off the grind the aromatics are cola sweet and hint towards floral. As with last year, a malic acidity predominates and flavors range from honeycrisp to plum to nougat to chamomile. If you prefer crisp, clean and delicately nuanced coffees, look no further.

We buy, roast, and sell coffee. On a surface level, this sounds simple enough. But buying coffee in a way we are proud of and in a way that those who buy our coffee are proud of is often complex, challenging, and hard work. We find ourselves on a continuum of buying and selling that progresses towards more sustainable, meaningful and equitable. The below information provides basic information for each lot on where we are on this journey, and where this lot falls within our relationship chart.
