It's a strange time of year for fresh coffees since most origins are in between harvests, but Ecuador provides coffees that are simply winter's best gift. Our friends at Caravela were really excited to share with us one of their new offerings from producer Grace Morales in Pichincha. Coffee is a new addition to Grace's 350 hectare farm, and the young trees make up only 5 hectares. The yields are still quite small as the trees are still maturing, but the quality is incredibly exciting. The semi-washed lot is 100 percent Caturra, which means a small portion of the coffee fruit is left on while the coffee dries. Farmers utilize this process to impart a more fruited quality on the coffee while retaining the clarity and cleanliness of a washed coffee. Grace's semi-washed lot is incredibly complex, with crisp clean fruit like Asian Pear and a deep, mouthwatering sweetness. The washed lot is a blend of Sidra and Caturra, though in the future Grace hopes to separate her lots into individual varietals. We were absolutely gobsmacked by the clarity and sweetness of her coffee, and we hope to be serving much more of it in the future.

In light of these strange COVID-19 times, we've made some changes to our roasting routine in an effort to take extra care. For the foreseeable future, roasting will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays only, shipping out Tuesdays and Thursdays. This means your order will arrive one day later than it normally would.

That one-day lag is caused by the decision to stagger roasting and bagging days in order to keep operations as safe and sanitized as humanly possible. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support during these challenging weeks.

All of our coffees are roasted to order and shipped as whole beans. Orders are roasted based on demand.
