Jon’s coffee special features three of our most popular coffees.
This bundle includes:

Guatemalan Premium Fraijanes – Finca De Dios
Finca De Dios is really catching steam as one of the more premier Guatemalan coffee farms. The coffee keeps getting better and better each year.

Similar to Edwins farm, De Dios is a model of sustainability and treats its workers better than 99% of other farms in the region; providing education, infrastructure and medical care.

Almost forty years ago, a horse lover bought the farm with the intent of lodging his horses. A few years later, he was transferred because of work reasons. His daughter; Ellen Prentice, who remained in Guatemala, was left in charge of the farm. She started to tend the few hectares of coffee that the farm had and planted most of the farm with coffee, with the exception of the natural forests.

Six years ago, after inheriting her piece of the original farm, she proceeded to name it Finca de Dios, in memory of her father who had dedicated his land to God. Since then they have been building the necessary infrastructure, which her part did not have, including a wet mill. Even though small in comparison to most of the big coffee farms, we agree with the saying that says that some of the best things in life come in small packages.

They want to preserve the beauty of all of God’s creation and therefore have reserved more than one third of their land to the preservation of natural forests. In this way, they hope that birds and other wildlife can find a safe haven; a place to call home.

They believe that they have been blessed so that they can be a blessing to others. They strive to treat their workers with dignity and love so that they can work in an atmosphere of respect and peace. They try to accommodate workers with special needs to jobs they can best handle. They also try to teach those who work with them values and principles; especially the importance of working with excellence so that their clients can enjoy drinking an exceptional cup of coffee.

Tasting Notes:
A great clean micro lot from our friends at Finca De Dios. Awesome prep, one can tell a lot of care went into these beans. A great medium to as “dark as you want to go” bean type. Light roasts produce a lot of floral brightness and light fruit notes (almost reminiscent of a nice Costa) mixing with a subtle yet very sweet malty chocolaty note (can be a little more challenging to roast to a light roast)  a great morning brew – darker roasts will produce more body similar to the Huehues – very clean non-roasty dark-roast beans – you get a lot of the sweet malty tones and very smooth even into 2nd crack – a very stand up bean at almost any roast level.

Roasting Notes:
Lighter roasts accent the fruitier brightness, deeper levels deliver smooth, rich chocolate malty flavors and a hint of smokiness – awesome and clean dark roast notes. Coffee will roast a little two-toned containing a couple different strains, if shooting for the lighter roasts slowing it down a bit will be helpful.

Colombian Bucaramanga Supremo

In Colombia the vast majority of coffee is cultivated, harvested and processed on small family owned farms. While these producers are their own architects, designing farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit their environment, they also need strong alliances to bring their coffee to the international market and earn fair prices. To support this system of small farm production, Colombia established the Federación Nacional de Cafeteros de Colombia (FNC) to organize and support a complex network of larger regional coffee cooperatives.

These cooperatives provide producers with valuable logistical support like centralized warehouses to store dried parchment and dry mills where the coffee is prepared for export according to size and quality.

This is a decent and fresh strictly large bean screen “Supremo” from the state of Burcaramanga. Being an aggregate small holder coffee, the cup really gives the terroir of Colombia.

Tasting Notes:
Best from a medium to dark roast; big bodied, low acidity with stronger more toasted nutty/chocolaty character. Smooth and rich cup, on the stronger, semi-sweet side of Colombian coffees. Classically toned as some would say.  If you touch or go into second crack, one does get some complimenting roasty and smoky tones that turn the cup more chocolaty than nutty. Before 2nd crack, more nutty than chocolaty.

Roasting Notes: 
An easy to roast coffee good from a medium roast to as dark as you want to go. Light roasts come off a little grassy and under developed but as you creep towards a medium roast you get very nice classic Colombian toasted walnut and spice with a slightly chocolaty finish.

Costa Rican SHB EP Tarrazu La Pastora

Tarrazu coffees are grown in altitudes over 3,900 feet, allowing them to be designated SHB-single hard bean, the highest classification in the Costa Rican system. Grown in rich volcanic soil and high altitude make this one the finest coffees in the world.

Tarrazu coffees are famed for snappy, strikingly clean flavor. Known as a “classically complete” coffee, they’re crisp and medium-bodied, with tangy citrus flavor and a fine, satisfying aroma. Tarrazu cups wonderfully at all but the lightest and darkest of roasts.

Tasting Notes:
The aroma is floral and sweet like honey. A nice medium bodied, smooth & creamy cup of coffee with little stronger floral aspect, medium to low acidity. It does get a good lemongrass tone at lighter roasts with a soft fruit tone as the cup cools, crisper cup with a slight nutty tone. Turns much more chocolaty into the medium or dark roasts. The cup finishes with a pleasantly surprising spiciness. This is a savory cup of coffee with wonderful complexities.

Roasting Notes:
Easy to roast and good from light to dark. Will roast a little two toned, make sure everything is through first crack before cooling it out. Medium roasts are where thought it to shine, well balanced and smooth; might be a little mild for some. Darker roasts are slightly edgy but great pronounced dark chocolate tones balancing with some smoky and toasty notes, a good combo.

  1. Bill M.

    I always love this coffee. It has a lovely and complex flavor. No one element dominates. I like to roast it medium to medium dark. Each pound I roast is a different variety, but every time I roast this one, both my wife and I absolutely love it.
