    Moreno family members have become somewhat of a farming dynasty in Santa Barbara, inspiring many of their neighbors to pursue specialty coffee. The Morenos are in a special category of coffee producers, consistently cultivating and producing the highest quality coffee. This requires a mixture of ambition, long term planning, understanding what their market is looking for, and constant reevaluation of agronomic, harvesting and processing techniques. El Tanque is Danny Moreno’s highest altitude tablon, producing this exceptional coffee. In the cup we taste notes of honeydew melon, red apple, and refined sugar.

    Dambi Uddo is the name for the kabele where both the farm of the same name and the drying station are located. It is a semi-forest farm on approximately 250 hectares of land that processes its own coffee along with coffee from other smallholders in the area. Dambi Uddo is located in the Guji highlands with an average altitude of 2,050 meters. This is easily the cleanest and most balanced naturally processed coffee we have cupped this season. The cup is crisp and vibrant with notes of strawberry, peach, lemon, apple, and cherry blossom.

  • WCR Benefit Series – Ethiopia Raro

    nectarine, refined sugar, pineapple
    Guji | 1950-2250 masl | Heirloom | Washed

    $20.00

    Clear

    We thought it fitting to feature this special coffee from Ethiopia, the birthplace of arabica, for our inaugural World Coffee Research Benefit Series release. Ethiopia is of critical importance to the entire world — arabica evolved in the forests here and it is the wellspring of coffee genetic diversity.

    This lot comes from the Raro Boda washing station. Farmers in this region grow their coffee either in semi-forest conditions, where they prune and tend to wild native coffee trees under a forest canopy, or in garden conditions, where coffee trees are cultivated and tended to near a farmer’s home. All of the coffee here is grown at extremely high altitude, between 1950 – 2250 masl, and is dried on raised beds. In the cup, we taste notes of nectarine, pineapple, refined sugar, and blackberry.

    $10 from every purchase goes to supporting the global, collaborative work of World Coffee Research to ensure the future of coffee. Learn more about World Coffee Research at https://worldcoffeeresearch.org.

    El Bosque is a farm operating in the Chimaltenango region of Guatemala, run by a gentleman named Luis Pedro Zelaya. Luis Pedro also operates the Bella Vista Mill where coffees from several of the farms he manages are milled. Here, lot separation allows for greater quality and transparency and the Bella Vista team tries to keep a strict adherence to all agricultural activities on all the farms they manage to ensure high production and quality. The cherries are hand-picked by people from places near the farm, bringing a good source of employment to the community. We find that El Bosque brews an extremely sweet cup with notes of citrus, plum, pear, and dark chocolate.

    We’re teaming up with some of our favorite people to bring you the Benefit Series. 50% of the sales of these bags go to our friends at WSU’s Bread Lab. To learn more about WSU’s Bread Lab program visit their website – http://thebreadlab.wsu.edu.

    This series features a dynamic new washed coffee from 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 knowledge all along the coffee supply chain. Palomos Del Sur 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 with flavors of mixed berries, white peach, honey, apple, and persimmon.
