No two coffees are alike. At the end of each season, microlots with unique characteristics emerge.

“Season 2022 coffees are compelling and massively endowed with notes of fruit bowl, plum, raisin, tangerine, honey and much more. Each lot shares its secrets. The coffees are structured, well-bodied & approachable featuring Natural, Washed, Honey and Experimental lots.” – Sherri Johns

Good coffee has
always been
about its origin -
soil, its people
and their spirit.
