Constantly innovating to bring you the very best.
Take a look below at the exclusive programs we have created for you.
CAPTZIN - the BETTER BLENDER
How can we support our Producer Partners in a bigger way? We are diving deep and picking up high scoring micro-lots and larger lots from Producer's we are already partnered with, to bring you The Better Blender. From the high mountains of Huehue, to the lush valleys of Acatenango, we are separating these offerings into two profiles based on what we are tasting in the cup: Profile 1 is brighter and Profile 2 is more balanced. Because you shouldn't have to sacrifice for blends, we aren't skimping on bringing you the best we can find for less.
El cimarron - fair trade organic
We take pride in bringing our roaster partners FTO offerings that are not only traceable but delicious. We have found a great partner with the Asproguate Association and have unique offerings available based on Producer feature and profile score.
