The Signature is a blend of coffee developed with the help of our regulars.
Our goal with this coffee was to come up with a blend that our community of coffee drinkers would love.
To do that, we asked our customers to guide us in determining its components and its roast level.

The signatures on this bag are from our customers who have helped make this coffee.

It takes a crowd to make a crowd-pleaser.

Tis the season. 

Our love for all things Mexican is not subtle. 

I, Jeff, have a grandmother from northern Mexico, our home here in Southern California has a massive love for all mexican food from street food to sophisticated (I am looking at you Taco Maria), and our new seasonal drinks are massively inspired by our neighbors down south. 

So when we sourced this amazing coffee San Pedro Yosotatu from Oaxaca, we wanted to do more with it.  So we added a splash of our Ardi Natural, and have made our first seasonal blend.

 

It is great for filter, espresso, or just to stare at this gorgeous bag design by Haley Russo. 

In honor of my Grandma, my love for tacos, and all those celebrating Día de Muertos... Cheers!

La Serranía Decaf is a Natural EA Decaf Coffee, processed at the Descafecol plant in Manizales. The decaffeination process at this plant uses ethyl acetate derived 100% from sugar cane mixed with mountain water, together removing 99.7% of the caffeine present. The beauty of the Natural EA process is that it helps preserve most of the original flavors of the coffee while adding fruity notes and some complexity to the cup.

El Guayacan AA - Organic - PERU

El Guayacan AA - Organic - PERU

Regular price $ 19.00

REGION: Cajamarca, Per

PROCESS: Fully Washed

Elevation: 1,700 - 2,200 masl

Varietal: Typica, Caturra, Bourbon

Notes: juicy berry, cocoa,hazelnut

This coffee is from the norther higher elevation area of Peru. When we cupped it, I was in love with its balance of both syrupy mouth-feel, nutty complexity, but still fruity sweetness. These characteristics are definitely due to the farm’s efforts in elevation and sorting. AA is a designation for the sorting that means this coffee not only maintains a high standard of taste/quality but it also is very consistent in its make-up from bean to bean. Very few defects. (The black bear Peru is the same region, but less prestigious designation, just for comparison).

THIS IS ADVENTURE COFFEE, but CAN BE COMFORT. It isn’t overly fruity, due to its processing, but the more delicate flavors might be lost on people looking for a “dark roast.” Its nuttiness and sweetness are perfect for the holidays.

We only have a limited amount of this coffee.

This coffee is an adventure  

What is EF2? I know what Natural is, but EF2? 

Well... it is the term coined for this coffee's particularly fermentation process.

"This lot was  exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 24 hours, later placed inside grain pro bags for 60 hours maintaining temperature below 22 degrees celcius by placing the coffee inside a water tank. Later the coffee was placed on raised beds below 35 degrees celcius until ideal moisture content was achieved."

All this combined to make for any extremely complex and even coffee.  Some natural processed coffees are plagued with inconsistent densities and bean sizes, but by controlling all aspects of this process Jairo and the team at Cofient have really made something special. 

Cupping Notes: CHOCOLATE, RED APPLE, COCONUT, & ORANGE PEEL

Here are the details:

Country: Colombia

Farmer : Jario Arcila

Farm: Jardines Del Eden

The involvement women have had in the creation of Bear Coast as a community and a success is unparalleled. 
This is a coffee that was grown by amazing women.
Will be served in a cafe led by a team of amazing women.
And has a label designed to celebrate how much we love and will miss an amazing woman.  
Cassidy is on the bag due to her being one of the strongest leaders and women I know... and 10% of the sales of each of these bags will be donated directly to STEM programs to help make sure more young women out there grow up to be like Cass.
(STEM = SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, MATH)
Women have been fundamental to our story. Jenna Ross, Roxy, Gabs, Camille, Taylor, and countless other women have been the leaders and the rockstars of this coffee company's growth. 
This past month our long-time manager of the San Clemente store, Cassidy, found out that her goal of being a teacher was finally becoming a reality.  Her student teaching began last week, and she is on her way to inspire more kids to fall in love with science like her mom did for her. 
Cass and Jenna (former manager of the Dana Point Store) have affectionately been referred to as the MOMagers of Bear Coast. Due to their legacy of growing teams from nothing and running them like a family.  Now with Jenna on the East Coast, and Cassidy teaching... an era has come to an end. 
It was beyond serendipitous that Cassidy's leaving to teach coincided with the arrival of this amazing coffee from a blend of women farmers in Guatemala. 
So we will miss you Cassidy, but this coffee is inspired by you!

For more than a decade we've cultivated deep relationships with a few women farm owners around our home in Huehuetenango. For decades producers like Ana Maria Ortega and Paty Perez have shown us the special strength, resiliency, and generosity of women in key leadership roles at the farm level.

Across Guatemala, women are the majority labor force on coffee farms, from picking to export. And around the world women comprise up to 70% of farm work while owning disproportionately few assets and land. Despite limited access, discrimination and violence, many women have forged their own paths for their families through their coffee farms. As part of our initiative to diversify our sourcing, provide market access, and highlight the stories of powerful women, we bring you ELLA - Women Producers of Guatemala.

Through our QC Lab in Guatemala City, we're expanding our reach while doing due diligence necessary to invest in long-term partnerships empowering more women producers. As we find outstanding farms in sync with our ethos, we'll begin to feature them singularly, such as Doña Sofia from Finca Armenia Lorena. The ELLA blend will be a curation of women-produced lots we're onboarding, with a crowd-pleasing brown sugary sweetness, full creamy body, orange and light tropical fruits.
