The Story:

Going out with a chocolatey boom! Our final batch of 2018 comes from producer Don Francisco. Year after year, he produces nothing but exceptional coffees high in the lush mountains of Nicaragua. Land conservation is of utmost importance, and Don Francisco has maintained a portion of his land in its natural state to protect state forests and natural spring waters.

They have many varieties of coffee on their property like Caturra, Maragogype, and Maracaturra (a hybrid of Maragogype and Caturra) to name a few. This is a crowd-pleasing batch that's sure to win over your crowded household during the holidays.

The Story:

Well ok! The year is basically over and that has us all nostalgic. This is batch numero 25 for 2018 (we only have one left before the new year!) and we're going out with a bang. This coffee from producer Silvio Diaz in Nariño (one of our favorite growing regions in Colombia) is just the sweetest. Should pair well with one of our many exciting #CoffeeOutside opportunities - Fridays with Fog City Gear in SF (pictured below), and every other Friday with Outdoor Voices here in LA.

Also pairs well with your favorite breakfast foods. Like a stack of doughnuts or ye olde bowl of cereal (props to Clare Healy with that lovely top pic). Enjoy, y'all!
