Descriptions of each coffee contained in this sample pack:
Ethiopian Heirloom (Light-Medium Roast)
This coffee is from the Guji Zone of Ethiopia. The coffees from Guji are wonderfully floral, sweet, and full of complex flavors. This new 2021 lot of Uraga is no exception. The coffees from this lot were grown in the forests surrounding Yabitu Koba, Larcho Torka, and Layo Teraga. The Kerchanshe washing station where our coffee is processed began over 15 years ago and now comprises 350 raised beds, supporting 1900 farmers and their crops each season.
Costa Rica Naranjo Reserve (Light-Medium Roast)
Danilo Salazar has been farming coffee for over fifty years in Llano Bonito, Naranjo. He grows not only coffee on his 17 hectares of land, but also bananas, plantains, and peaches. Danilo is a member of Cafe de Altura de San Ramon, an organization founded in 2004 to process coffee throughout Costa Rica. The association works hard to provide its more than 500 producers with the knowledge and resources they need to sell their coffee for the premiums it deserves. Since coffee in Costa Rica isn’t fully washed, a measure taken to conserve fresh water, there is a bit more fruit in the cup, especially in this unique coffee.
Guatemalan, Huehuetenango (Medium Roast)
Father and son Arturo and Vielmann Villatoro formed Finca Los Angeles in 1980, and their coffee is grown on 98 out of the 120 hectares that encompass the farm. Their land is covered in shade trees to protect the Bourbon and Caturra plants below.
El Salvador, Monte Verde (Medium Roast)
This is a wonderful coffee from the mountains of El Salvador. The Contreras family own a farm called "Finca Monte Verde", and our beans come directly from their San Jose plot. This coffee is sweet and citrusy, with underlying flavors of caramel and roasted nuts. It's an easy drinking coffee, and we are finishing the beans with a nicely balanced medium roast.
