Collaborative Coffee Source
In 2018, we traveled to Colombia to participate in the Acevedo Cup, a competition hosted by one of our fave exporters, Fairfield Trading, and fave importers, Collaborative Coffee Source. We had our socks knocked off by a coffee from a guy named Carlos Calderon, which ended up placing third. This year, 2019, we once again participated in the Acevedo Cup and once again loved Carlos's coffee. This year, however, we were especially excited when we learned that his wife, Gloria Silva, had also submitted her own lot of coffee from their farm, Finca El Porvenir, and also placed in the top 10! Her lot was really complex, with notes of melon, cherry, and spiced honey. We are so stoked to offer coffee from both Carlos and Gloria Silva, and look forward to growing our relationship with the Calderon fam.
All of our coffees are roasted to order and shipped as whole beans. We roast on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and ship out the following day. Orders are roasted based on demand. Thanks!
