 For a coffee this special, we have decided to use our Ikawa roaster to

roast each order individually.

You order, we roast, and fill your order directly from the roaster.

Coffee roasted specifically for you. 

GeIsha Varietal is one that has now become synonymous with some of the best coffees in the world. A genetic branch of the coffee family tree that started in the Geisha region of Ethiopia, it has gained notoriety mostly for the record breaking lots grown in central America. This hard to find coffee is known for its delicate floral notes while bursting with tropical fruit flavor. When this coffee varietal is grown with the care that Isreal Hernandez has done, it becomes a great example of what coffee can be. 

Isreal Hernandez comes from a traditional, humble and religious coffee growing family in Rioblanco, Tolima. At the age of 15, his father started to involve him in what would later become Israel’s main source of income and a large part of his life, coffee production. His father taught him everything about coffee, from fertilization, to the post-harvest processes. As the years passed, Israel wanted to start his own coffee farm from scratch and to produce coffee by himself. In 2005, he visited a small countryside neighborhood called Uribe and purchased a very small piece of land there. However, every day when he would go out to work on his coffee plantation, he would stare at the farm that was located right in front of his, amazed at how beautiful it was and he would dream of producing coffee there, however, he didn’t have enough money to even negotiate a price for the land. In his efforts to purchase his dream, he saved up and was eventually able to close a deal with the owner of the farm and purchase the land. When he moved to that farm, he called it Buenos Aires because of its perfect weather and altitude. Since then, he frequently receives offers from friends and neighbors wanting to purchase the farm, but he always says that he is not interested in selling it.

In 2016, he was looking for ways to improve the quality of his coffee online and he learned about Geishas having great potential to achieve high cup quality. He decided to plant 1200 trees of this variety and to receive training on how to produce it. He came to realize that producing specialty coffee required much more attention to detail and a more delicate work, but he says, “Thanks to specialty coffee, I’ve learned to love the product, because it’s a beautiful way to be profitable and move forward in life.” For Israel, it is very satisfying to receive recognition for his hard work. He says he is constantly producing coffee with all his love because he believes that the coffee he produces is able to speak for him to the whole world.

Process: Honey - Anaerobic fermentation 

Elevation: 1800 Meters

Varieties: Tabi

 

This is the first of a number of very special coffees we have coming from Colombia.  Not only does Colombia produce some of the worlds most sought-after crops... they have started leading the way in experimental fermentation. 
This Honey-Processed Tabi from Jose Alvaro Cruz Chala was put through anaerobic fermentation after the initial pulp was removed from the cherry. 
What this means is, they got rid of the oxygen during this process. This controlled environment gives all the acids in the coffee a chance to DO THEIR THING.  Their is not one specific flavor-note that anaerobic processing produces, but the way I boil it down is ... by cutting out the environmental factors, this process lets the coffee amplify flavors that normally don't get a chance to shine. 
We only have a limited Amount of this coffee.

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.

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!
