brown butter, peach, sugarcane

...in this coffee.

We introduced you to Nery’s coffee earlier this year with a very small lot, but promised it wouldn’t be the last. Now, we are excited to offer another super sweet, and slightly larger lot from this incredible producer!

Nery’s story with coffee is nothing short of amazing and we are so grateful for the opportunity of sharing her special coffee with you. Nery was born into coffee with her father owning a farm in Nariño. But at the age of 20 she started her own journey by moving to Huila and becoming a coffee picker. Eventually she saved enough money to purchase her own farm and over the years has transformed her coffee from ready to blend quality (RTB/A) to a level that easily surpasses our quality threshold. You can read more about her amazing journey below.

Lot 2 has super sweet, brown sugar-like aromatics. Sweet aromatics lead to sweet cups of coffee and Nery’s coffee is high on the sugary notes. We are also tasting notes of browned butter and a lively peach acidity. Really lovely, balanced, exceptional coffee – you don’t want to miss out!

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 relationships. The chart below provides basic information for each lot on where we are on this journey.
