Introducing a new edition to our Colombian micro-lot series. Santa Rosa is one of the larger producing farms from our micro-lot series who we have been working with by way of Azahar. Generating about 650kg of coffee this harvest year, all of which you can find only here and on our cafe’s shelves!

This is our eighth season working with Azahar; all to find some of the best Colombian lots to share. What makes this series special is not just the great coffee, but the great people who work to support its journey from seed to cup. Azahar has been working tirelessly on a sustainable business model, which allows growers like Jose Guerrero more room to help pave a new direction in sustainable farming and business practices, something we can all be proud of.

Buying a coffee like this one helps to ensure great coffees in the future, and better lives for the families who help bring them to us now.

    A little nutty in the middle, a sweet burst of fruitiness at the end, a nice round flavor that lingers. A pleasure to sip.

    Distinctly robust and flavorful! There is a strong sweet chocolate base, complimented by a light citrus undertone. The finish is a bit dry with compelling epilogue of roasted nut. I am looking forward to trying this roast in a variety of brewing methods to see what other flavors are unlocked. Usually I stick to Vietnamese drip, but tried this roast as a latte today, and I am quite pleased with the result.
