Picking the right coffee is an important decision, but if it’s an integral part of your day, the choice can be difficult. So, before you choose the coffee that’s right for you, let’s discuss the ins-and-outs of single-origin coffee.
We believe that good coffee is not just about taste– it’s about experience. That means making sure that the coffees we sell are not just the highest quality, but that they are ethically and sustainably sourced. Single-origin coffee offers that kind of reliability while offering a plethora of unique, one-of-a-kind options.
With single-blend coffees, you are able to experience coffees from every corner of the world. Each type of coffee offers its own profile of flavors. Central American coffees are known for the brightness of their flavors, while Asian coffees are known for a heavier taste.
Our Yirgacheffe for example, is an heirloom coffee from the Kochere region of Ethiopia, which is widely considered the birthplace of Coffee. Heirloom is an important distinction for Ethiopian coffee because it means the coffee is directly descended from ancient Ethiopian plants. The black tea aroma with a fruity sweetness and acidity comes from a sorting method called “zero defect sorting,” which takes three times longer than other coffees from the same region. There is no other flavor profile like it.
Single-origin coffee offers more than a multitude of flavor profiles, but unique and enduring stories that reflect sustainable and ethical coffee farming methods.
The light acidity of our clean-bodied Sumatran coffee is great for coffee drinkers with sensitive stomachs, but it is much more than that. Drinkers can enjoy this chocolaty coffee while knowing that the farmers who grew it are actively fighting deforestation in Indonesia. In addition to helping farmers operate sustainably, funds also support the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP).
But perhaps it isn’t about sustainability or flavor for you. Maybe you would like to know exactly who is growing and processing the coffee in your mug. We’ve got you there too. A creamy yet citrusy tasting coffee, our Nicaraguan direct-trade coffee comes from Diego Chavarria, a coffee farmer in the Matagalpa region.
Chavarria has been growing coffee on 600 acres in the highlands of Northern Nicaragua since 1996. A Christian, Chavarria knew that his calling was more than just growing a clean, creamy coffee, but growing it ethically and sustainably. Over the past 20 years he has helped his community by helping to build churches, schools, and providing a living wage for his employees.
When you buy this blend, you can feel secure knowing that you are supporting good people who are working hard and taking care of their community–not to mention that an independent lab in Matagalpa scored this coffee at 83 points–delicious!
Each single-origin coffee is as different as they come, which makes finding the coffee that fits your individual needs even easier! Enjoy a myriad of flavors and stories as you fill in your “coffee map.”
