Fall Offerings

Tom and I have been on the run all summer long between Rwanda, Burundi, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia aaand Indonesia! We're excited about the work we've put in and the the beautiful coffees we have coming through the pipeline. We're expecting our first arrivals from Narino, Cauca and Rwanda in the coming weeks so stay tuned into the website. These coffees are some of the finest we've collectively bought from either origin.
