This coffee is richly complex. Chocolate with plum and ripe blackberry coulis. The solid acidity lends a rather nice structure that doesn’t dominate the lighter apple (malic) sweetness that comes to the front as it cools.
This is particularly great in vacuum pot, if you have the patience. But it also works well as straight espresso or pour-over.
Bags are 12 oz, whole bean.

The delicate aromatics that we love dissipate first, and push us to keep the coffee as fresh as possible. So the source of the coffees we include in our subscription will change throughout the year, but our philosophy for selecting them won’t.. We prefer coffees that are complexly fruit-forward, and gently sweet: floral aromas underscored with berry, spice, stone fruit flavors; and tempered with enough sweetness to balance it. The vibrancy of a truly great coffee, delicately roasted while it’s in its peak window is one of the most beautiful experiences to be had, we think. We think you’ll love it.
We keep this page updated the coffee we are currently delivering, along with some deep-dive information you nerdy types
We ship on Wednesdays via USPS First Class mail, so depending on where you live, you should have coffee in a day or two after that. Just enough time for it to degas.
You have almost complete control over how your subscription works. We can’t change the day we roast (yet), but beyond that, you are able to manage your subscription from your account panel in ways most subscriptions don’t allow you to do.
You can adjust how much, how often or pause for any reason. On vacation? That’s awesome. We’ll hold off on sending your next bag until you get back. Not drinking as much as you used to? Hmm, well ok, you can choose to get less frequent deliveries until you are back up to speed. Guests in for the week? Sounds fun. Add a bag to your next delivery.
Of course, you can always reach out to us directly if you need to. The only thing we ask is that you make any changes to your scheduled delivery before midnight on the Monday before we roast. And since you pay as you go it’s easy adjust on the fly.
Well Done & Thank You!
You'll get a confirmation email shortly. We're excited to get going and we're almost ready. When we are, you'll be the first to hear.
