Peru Rufino Mondragon
Rufino Vargas Mondragon owns three hectares of land situated at 1900 masl in the El Condor village of the Huabal district. Rufino is one of the few producers in the area who only grows caturra, and his yellow and red strains are planted separately. He only grows a small amount of coffee, around 25 exportable bags. Additionally, he grows citrus fruits, yucca, sweet potato, carrots, and raises cattle for milk and cheese production. All of this is executed without the use of any chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. This coffee is approachable and sweet, with mixed berry notes, and subtle floral undertones.
Honduras Elder Erazo
This is the first time we’ve offered Elder Erazo’s coffee on its own, even though we’ve been buying from him for the past couple of years. His coffee has been so consistently delicious that we’re thrilled to share his very limited production with you this year. Elder’s farm is located in the community of El Cedral, Santa Barbara where many outstanding coffees are produced each year. He grows coffee on just slightly over 1 hectare, growing a combination of catuai and pacas. Tasting notes include ripe raspberry, watermelon, brown sugar, and citrus.
Kenya Gakuyuini AA – 8oz.
At first glance, there is nothing extraordinary about the Thirikwa Farmers Cooperative Society, which only operates a single factory called Gakuyuini located in Kirinyaga county. But Thirikwa FCS has been turning heads with record breaking auction prices at the Nairobi Coffee Exchange for quite some time now. Farmers hand pick ripe cherry and delivery it to the Gakuyini mill for processing the same day, and their hard work and dedication shines through. This AA offering is perhaps our favorite Kenya lot of the year, showcasing exceptional body and structured acidity. In the cup we taste juicy notes of concord grape, pineapple, watermelon, and lime.

Colombia Palomos Del Sur Natural – 8OZ.
This is the naturally processed (or dry processed) version of our other Palomos offering. Naturally processed coffees keep the whole cherry intact during drying which imparts more intense fruit character and body to the cup. This type of processing can also result in a less consistent cup profile overall since it is mostly hand sorted. We were excited by the vibrant fresh fruit notes and sweetness that we found in this coffee. Naturally processed coffees can be polarizing due to potent aromatics and flavor, but really interesting and delicious at the same time. Expect notes of strawberry candy, barleywine, panela, cherry, and watermelon.

El Salvador Bernadina Honey – 8oz.
This Bernardina lot, produced by El Salvador’s renowned Pacas family, is a rare and special coffee. Bernadina is a variety recently discovered on the Pacas family’s Los Bellotos farm. This coffee was grown on another notable farm owned by the family, La Esperanza, and was honey processed, giving the cup unique complexity and body. Bernadina from La Esperanza placed 3rd in the 2019 El Salvador Cup of Excellence, and we couldn’t be happier to share this unique offering with you.

Cambrrrr Holiday Blend
Not surprisingly, our tastes tend to shift with the seasons. We created this blend to have something sweet, round and juicy to sip on during the holidays. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Ethiopia Banko Gotiti
This outstanding lot was grown by farmers living around the town of Banko Gotiti in Gedeo County. Most contributing farmers own less than a hectare of land, and grow coffee simply as a backyard cash crop. Coffee will usually be interspersed with other crops, such as sweet potato, mangoes, and avocados. Varieties of coffee grown are usually considered heirloom, as farmers simply inherit the trees from their parents. Income from coffee is important but minimal for most farmers due to the small size of their farms. As such, inputs are minimal– most coffee grown in the region is 100% organic, though not certified, as farmers generally don’t have the money to apply chemical fertilizers, or pesticides. Gotiti showcases floral aromatics that lead to lush notes of pineapple and peach in the cup.

Moonrise is comprised of Honduras El Tanque and Ethiopia Wuri natural. Hailing from the acclaimed Santa Barbara region of Honduras, El Tanque is Danny Moreno’s highest elevation farm and a perennial favorite. “Wuri” means “high altitude” in the Gedeo language, which Worka Sakora has certainly earned with some farming areas topping out over 2,000 masl. The sorting and drying processes at Wuri are precise and laborious. This naturally processed selection adds an intense, yet clean fruit character to Moonrise. Together these coffees produce a syrupy brew with a bright, complex acidity. We particularly love this coffee for espresso.

In the southernmost forest of the Uraga region lies the Ugo Begne forest and Wate Gogugu village, where the Gogugu washing station produces a truly singular coffee. Managed by lifelong coffee trader Kedir Jebril, Gogugu’s coffee goes through a meticulous process: first, it passes through McKinnon depulpers, then moves into washing channels where it loses the rest of its mucilage. It moves into soaking tanks for another 24 hours. This attention to care combined with amazing terroir brings us a coffee with outstanding floral and fruit complexity. We taste notes of peach, pomelo, jasmine, and mango.
Guatemala Santa Isabel
Santa Isabel is located near the town of San Cristóbal Verapaz, in the cool rainy reaches of Cobán. The farm is situated on 300 acres of high, fertile land. Don Luis and his son, also named Luis but nicknamed Wicho, manage the farm as general and agricultural manager, respectively. When Don Luis first planted the farm, Cobán didn’t necessarily have a reputation for high quality coffee. Don Luis and Wicho knew that the region had more to offer. By placing their attention on improved cultivation techniques and perfecting their drying practices, they transformed the quality of their coffee over the course of the last decade. Their coffees have placed in Guatemala’s Cup of Excellence twice.
Colombia Palomos Del Sur
Palomos Del Sur is owned by our friend Leonardo Henao, who is uniquely positioned in that he’s a farm owner / coffee producer, operates a dry mill with license to export, and has put together microlot buying programs throughout the country. Needless to say, he has an in depth and first hand knowledge all along the coffee supply chain. Palomos Del Sur is a newer piece of land that he purchased in San Antonio de Inzá. The farm is managed by Robinson Pillimué, a local and longtime ASORCAFE member, and an old friend of Leo’s. He and his family live at the farm year round and he oversees much of the renovation and harvest. The house on Palomos del Sur sits at 1880 meters, and marks the median altitude. The coffee itself is incredibly complex and structured, with flavors of honey, watermelon, pomegranate and citrus.
The Willows Inn Series
The Willows Inn on Lummi Island serves inspired dishes that are locally fished, foraged and farmed. The Willows was one of our first wholesale partners — we’ve collaborated closely on their coffee program for nearly 5 years. The Willows Series represents a rotating single origin coffee that their team selects to serve at dinner service. The current iteration is Ethiopia Gogugu, we taste notes of peach, pomelo, jasmine, and mango.
For Skyline, we select and roast coffees that produce articulate sweetness, complexity, and body. Our roast profile is optimized for espresso extraction. Our current offering is a blend of two outstanding coffees. Colombia Inzá is a regional blend that lends a caramelized depth of sweetness balanced by juicy dark fruit notes. Ethiopia Wolichu brings an array of complex aromatics including bergamot and orange spice. Together these coffees produce a brew with unique fruit character and resonant sweetness.
Big Joy Espresso
$17.00Big Joy is a slightly more developed roast than Skyline, and pairs exceptionally well with milk. We use Big Joy for all of our milk-based drinks at our cafe and it brews a dynamic, layered solo shot as well. But don’t count it out as a filter option! It will be delicious and sweet brewed with your favorite brewer. Our current Big Joy is a blend of single producer lots from Cajamarca, Peru. David Garcia Diaz owns two 1.5 hectare plots of land in the village of San Francisco. This coffee comes from his higher elevation farm, which sits at 1800 masl. Elvis Reinerio Tineo Rafael is a second-generation coffee producer who owns land in the El Diamante area of Jaen. Elvis and his family work on the land together, coordinating all of their processing together. Together these coffees produce a densely sweet brew showcasing complex sugar flavors and crisp fruit character.
Goodnight Moon Decaf
Goodnight stars, goodnight air, goodnight noises everywhere.
Goodnight Moon is comprised of carefully selected small batch coffees decaffeinated by our friends at Swiss Water Process. The roast profile is well suited for all brewing methods. We find the cup to be sweet and full-bodied with notes of cherry, chocolate wafer, raisin, and pear.
