We're insanely jazzed to introduce this exquisite new coffee from El Salvador. This is our first "honey" processed coffee - where the sticky, sugar-rich "mucilage" is left to dry directly on the beans after the cherries are removed. Producer Anny Pimentel is pioneering various types of this processing style at her farm (Finca Loma la Gloria) in El Salvador.
Check out all of the coffees we've featured so far here.
This week we're also stoked to feature the trippy artwork of local LA artist Jawsh Smyth. Subscribers to our coffee will be delighted to find his psychedelic-melty "Hot Mess" sticker in the box this week. We noticed one stuck on a parking meter in Santa Monica not too long ago and couldn't escape the gravitational pull of it's colorful weirdness.
"Pray to the art gods. Pray for enlightenment, a peaceful death, and a ripe avocado (or whichever comes first). Traversing the valley. Overcoming self-doubt. Climbing the mountain. Hovering along the cliffs of madness. Peace in the abstract. Preferring to live in metaphor. Just another hot mess." - jawsh
