The Story:

Less than agreeable: summer officially ending.

More than agreeable: a damn fine cup of Colombian coffee. In all seriousness - over the years, we've found more crowd-pleasing winners from this region than anywhere else. Subtle acidity, classic coffee notes, works great as drip or espresso. What's not to love?

We tested it out this past weekend on a quick surf trip to Baja, just south of the border. The waves have been massive. Our arms are dead, and this coffee is helping. Enjoy folks!

The Story:

Hey coffee lovers! We just returned from a magical week in the Pacific Northwest - where we joined up with Daybreak Racing for a 20 mile trail race at Mt. St. Helen's National Volcanic Monument. This race was a total beast - luckily we came prepared with delightful coffee to power through the whole dealio. This new batch from Kenya is an end-of-summer favorite, packed with berry vibes and a nice sparkly acidity. We hope you enjoy brewing in all manner of places (... in your local forest perhaps).
