Producer   ·   Rodrigo Sanchez

Farm   ·   Finca Monteblanco

Altitude   ·   1730m

Variety   ·   Pink Bourbon

Aquila (The Eagle) represents boundlessness, freedom, a spirit that is not afraid. These adjectives also do well to describe Rodrigo Sanchez of Finca Monteblanco in the Huila region of Colombia. Rodrigo and his team have not only isolated a previously unknown variety of coffee (Pink Bourbon), but have also pioneered a new processing technique called "cold fermentation". Freshly harvested ripe cherries are depulped and transferred to a cold room to prolong fermentation to produce more complex flavor. After 2 years of experimentation, Rodrigo found the ideal temperature for balanced sweetness and complexity to be 10-13℃, and has prepared this micro-lot accordingly. Through innovation and a willingness to push the boundaries, Rodrigo and the team at Finca Monteblanco continue to soar to new heights.

GUATEMALA | SAN ISIDRO

Tasting Notes   ·   Peanut Butter, Milk Chocolate, Caramel

Producer   ·   John Schippers

Farm   ·   San Luis El Volcancito

Altitude   ·   1400m

Variety   ·   Yellow Icatu

Process   ·   Washed

 

Ursa Minor (The Little Bear) is the perfect icon for this beautiful San Isidro Yellow Icatu from Guatemala. Polaris, commonly known as the North Star, is the brightest of the Ursa Minor constellation. Just as Polaris shines brightly in Ursa Minor, the Shippers family of Finca San Luis El Volcancito has cultivated coffee which has become the familiar "North Star" of our line up over the years; always there, shining brightly, guiding us home. Like "the little bear", this Yellow Icatu from the special San Isidro lot at Finca San Luis is the epitome of comfort coffee, with a full body, creamy mouthfeel and incredible balance that leave you always wanting just a little bit more.

COSTA RICA | SAN ROQUE

Tasting Notes   ·   Blackberry, Lemon Curd, Vanilla

Producer   ·   Rodrigo Oviedo

Farm   ·   Finca El Greco

Altitude   ·   1400m

Variety   ·   San Roque

Process   ·   Honey

 

Leo Minor (The Little Lion) is a small, faint constellation; only seen on the clearest nights. It reminds us that even lions start out as small cubs, hardly noticed. Rodrigo Oviedo of Finca El Greco in Costa Rica has found a lion cub of his own in the San Roque variety. San Roque is not considered one of the coveted rare varieties of high quality coffees we hear so much about... at least, not yet. That's because it's brand new to the scene. Rodrigo is one of the first to ever cultivate this new variety, and as you taste, you'll see why he believes (and we agree) this "little lion" will soon be roaring its way into the ranks of coffee royalty.
