Of all the new coffees, we're most excited about our full-city Guatemala for two reasons. One, its the funnest, boldest, most fruit-forward coffee we've seen all year. It tastes sweet and tart, with a soft, pillowy body that washes down clean and easy.
Two, it comes from a direct trade with our exciting new partners at De la Gente, a non-profit working specifically with two coops in Guatemala to produce great coffee and improve the lives of the people in its communities.
All of De la Genteâ€™s profits go directly to the farmers, giving them the opportunity to invest in education, healthcare, housing, and nutrition for their families. They facilitate farmer education classes that help increase and improve coffee production, and provide access to processing equipment, microfinance, clean drinking water, shade trees, and many other necessities.

This years single-bag import of Kenya hails from the Kiangoi Wet Mill of the Rungeto Farmers Coopertive near Mt. Kenya. This wet mill has been UTZ Certified since 2009, a process similar to fair trade and organic certifications that promotes sustainable practices and better opportunities for farmers and their families,
We really enjoy this coffeeâ€™s sweet and savory tones, notes of tart cherry and blackberry, and smooth, lingering finish. Our offering is extremely limited, though, so act fast if you want to get your hands on a bag.
Red Tiger Espresso
Finally, meet the newest member of our espresso line-up. This blend is a non-traditional take on the classic espresso flavor, focusing on bright citrus acidity and intense sweetness, while still retaining the full-body and complex balance that consumers expect. Light-roasted espresso makes for amazing lattes and cappuccinos. You might be surprised how much you dig it.
