Butter & artichoke

Sold out. We've had a coffee on our menu from Juan Saldarriaga in Colombia for almost the whole time we've been roasting. We love his attitude to experimentation and adventure and this coffee is no different. Its wild, funky and weird for all those looking for a really different cup of coffee.

Juan Saldarriaga is a medium-sized producer that recently took over his families two farms. A couple of years ago he started a small project with other young growers in the region. The two farms he now owns are about 60 hectares each, in altitudes from 1400 to 1800 masl. He is experimenting with different cultivars in different altitudes, and many of them are recently planted. We met a few years ago, and what really encouraged us to work with him was the will to change, adapt and improve to meet the future demand on qualities. Antioquia is known for solid, but maybe slightly boring coffees, but there is a lot going on right now, and we think these coffees are proof of that.

The biggest challenge is the drying due to humidity and temperature. After we met Juan and started to talk about drying under shade, he immediately constructed drying facilities with raised bed under cover. He has also installed a machine that can dry with cold air and with a software where you can adjust temperature, airflow etc, and make profiles on different coffees.

  • Plum & Almonds

    Having spent some time living in Andean Ecuador, only a few hundred kilometers south from where finca Los Idolos is located in Nariño, Colombia in the south western corner of Colombia, I am reminded of the immense variety of geography, climates, ecosystems, and subsequent biodiversity of this area of the world. This coffee from Edgar Meneses at Finca Los Idolos has a plum-like acidity, gentle sweetness, and is well balanced by an almond and creamy yet clear and clean body.

  • Honey & Rose

    That feeling when it’s still a little brisk outside, and you can’t help but sit in the bright sunshine, letting it warm you after the long dark winter. That is what this coffee is — it’s highly anticipated springtime, finally right around the corner. This cup contains honey sticky sweetness and rose; it’s balanced with a hint of refreshing bitters.

  • Fruktnøtt

    Everyone has their favorite. Be it Kvik Lunsj, Firkløver, or Helnøtt, we all have that one particular Norwegian chocolate bar that we gravitate towards. This tasty coffee from Finca Los Pirineos in El Salvador is those of you who can’t get enough Fruktnøtt in your life.

  • Dried Apricot & Spices

    A wintry perfection of dried fruits and cardamom spice. Just what you need to warm up in cozy comfort.

  • Star Anise & Dark Syrup

    Another stunning coffee from the Caballero Collective in Honduras. This coffee has the best of both worlds, with a lot of brightness and a lovely, full, syrupy body.

  • Milk chocolate & wild berries

    Sold out. This gorgeous coffee from Honduras has so much to give.
