As we slurp coffees in our tasting room, we look for the perfect combination of climate, soil, elevation, and agricultural practices that come together to produce a great coffee.
As we taste coffees, the question we ask ourselves is this: Which coffees from a given location best represent the perfect intersection of climate and skilled horticulture? We seek unmistakable regional flavors, what a French wine-maker would call goût de terroir, the “taste of the place.”
Coffees from each of the planet’s three main growing regions have distinctive characteristics:
- Latin American coffees tend to be clean, familiar and friendly, with flavors reminiscent of nuts or cocoa.
- Coffees from Africa/Arabia are extraordinary and enticing, with floral aromas and flavors of berries and citrus.
- Coffees from Asia/Pacific tend to be bold and assertive, full-bodied with earthy and herbal flavors.
Each single-origin coffee we offer exemplifies the best flavor qualities of its region. We invite you to explore a cup.
