Here we present to you our roasters choice of coffee – three very different coffees. We want to show you a world of different flavors, and this is why we choose these specific coffees:
Colombia – Pablo Guerrero produces the arabica variety Geisha, and the I our second time buying coffee from him. Geisha is one of the more exclusive varieties in specialty coffee, due to its mot complex and rich flavors. We love it!
Costa Rica – An all time favorite by our roasters and baristas. This is also the second time buying Luis Anastasio Castros harvest, and there's a reason we keep coming back to it again and again.
Colombia – We only bought one bag of the coffee from Aponte, as a new take on buying green coffee. Micro-lots or micro-batches of coffee is always something we try to get our hands on, often because of its' exclusivity, this way we can assure a higher quality of coffee and have it temporarly/during a limited period. This way we're also making sure that no coffee gets left behind!

Luis Anastasio Castro, better known as Tacho, was an early adapter to the micromill model. At this micromill, the Juanachute, the entire process is controlled. From planting the coffee trees to sealing the jute bags of greenbeans, all under the supervision of DonTacho. This lot is White Honey processed, which means that the beans are first washed, then dried on sunbeds in full sun for 14-21 days. The Castro family is involved in the coffee market in many different ways. One of Tacho’s sons is reponsible for the barista education program in the local high school, and competes in Barista Championships. Tacho’s other son works at a coffee exporting company and make relationships in markets.
PRODUCER: APONTE Community
Farm/washing station: Various Smallholder Farms
Taste profile: Sweet with notes of peach, dried fruit and watermelon candy
The Inga community of Aponte is comprised of descendants of the ancient pre-hispanic Incas. After years of seeking refugee in the mountains due to conquest, and then criminality with illegal activities under the influence of guerilla groups, drug trafficers and such, the last decade the mountains finally has become a safe zone for the Inga tribe once again. Now they’ve removed all illegal crops to give way to a new culture: coffee. The Caturra variety has been planted in the Ingaterritory, on smallholder properties in the Resguardo Inga Aponte. The high elevation, combined with the Galerras Volcano constantly shedding nutrient-rich ash, makes for an exceptionally complex coffee.
