Colombia’s tiny, family-run farms have traditionally sold their produce to exporters for mass-market blending and homogenization, causing many of the country’s most exquisite coffees to get lost in the mix. Our unique La Golondrina project, however, partners directly with Popayan’s most talented and dedicated farmers to source only the best lots of each harvest. In the cup, expect layers upon layers of sweet caramel and chocolate atop subtle notes of black cherry and wine.
We’ve spent years studying the mysterious coffees from the northern tip of the island of Sumatra, grown by the Gayo people in the mountains surrounding Lake Tawar. Years ago, we made an exciting discovery: in a little valley called Jagong there sits a small coffee mill which produces, by far, the most beautiful coffees of the region. Deep notes of dark chocolate and spice layer atop a heavy, syrupy body. Just a touch of fruit rounds out the experience – mouthwateringly profound and intense.
