3 x 250 grams of whole roasted coffee beans, packed in a gift box with information on each coffee.
Here we present to you our roasters choice of coffee – three very different coffees, all with high drinkability. We want to show you a world of different flavors, and this is why we choose these specific coffees:
Brazil – this is a classic full-bodied coffee, all the best nutty, chocolaty and soft notes are really coming through, and makes it a great start for people who wants to try specialty coffee for the first time.
Costa Rica – with its milk chocolaty notes, this is hopefully something that will make you want to dig further into the specialty coffee scene. It’s more funky than the Brazilian, but still very easy to drink. A tip is to have a soft vanilla cake on the side, it really enhances the flavors.
Colombia – the beloved country with multiple flavor profiles, that never stops surprising us with great coffee beans. This particular one is full of sweetness with a smooth mouthfeel with makes it a great coffee to try if you liked the previous ones. This is the most adventurous of the three we chose.

Everaldo Gonçalves de Siqueira is the name of the producer for this coffee. He started out with just 7 hectares of land that was recieved as a family inheritance in the city of Carmo do Paranaíba. In the beginning there were many obstacles due to a lack of machinery and access to financial resources, but the passion for coffee persisted. Eventually, with the help of his brothers, Everaldo grew the property to 110 hectares across two Fazendas, Santa Cecília and Cachieira.

Nariño is located in the far south-west of Colombia bordering Ecuador, and is in general one of the most challenging, but also most interesting places to work. There is an extremly high elevation, up to 2 080 meters, very steep hillsides, and mainly super tiny farms in very remote areas. Diana Milena Guererro de la Cruz and her husband Jiero Canar Córdoba, work alongside each other on their farm El Pedregal. They came into the farm through Jiero’s father who divided his own farm into a few lots and gave one to Jiero. Diana bought her lot from Jieros sister, who didn’t work the land she had been given. At El Pedregal coffees still carried by horse from the plantation to the farm itself.
