Joe Coffee Company

Joe Coffee: The Village — Currently, The Village comes from the Rubí sisters’ farm Finca Ruland 2, in Las Vegas, Honduras. Andrea and her sisters’ skill and diligence shine through this lot of washed and natural coffees. Expect a complex balance of layered acidity and structured sweetness. Beginning with notes of deep citrus and stone fruit, flavors arc towards ripe cherry as the coffee cools, leaving us with a final, soft note of spice and caramel.

The Village is a celebration of women in coffee, composed of seasonally-rotating selections from valued relationships with female producers and cooperatives, aimed at highlighting and addressing this gender gap. According to strong research, investing in women increases the sustainability of coffee everywhere—women are more likely to reinvest their income back into their families, their coffee businesses, and their communities. And when access to decision-making and the global marketplace improves for women farmers, quality improves too.

Madcap Coffee Company: Irvin Izaguirre—Upon visiting longtime partner Juan Angel’s farms in Honduras in 2022, we learned that he passed along his highest elevation property, La Montaña, to his son Irvin to care for. Madcap has partnered with Juan’s family since 2014, and we’ve watched his sons become more involved with the coffee growing process. For the second year, we’re honored to release this special micro-lot coffee under Irvin Izaguirre’s name. This coffee is marked with soft notes of red berries like raspberry, as well as cane sugar and rose.

Monogram Coffee

Monogram Coffee: Vistacion Munoz  —The Parainema variety is a super interesting variety, and one of the most unique flavour profiles that we have ever tried. Genetically, it is a Sarchimor, which means that it has Timor heritage, which has roots with Robusta species. The benefit of this variety is its disease resistance, but people have started to discover that Parainema also have sought after flavour profiles which adds a lot of value to this variety in the specialty market for roasters and cafes like us.

The coffee is depulped as soon as it is received, and then it is dry fermented for 14-16 hours. After fermentation, the coffee is washed 4 times before being transported to the parabolic drying beds. The coffee is then dried between 8-12 days, with manual sorting and selection throughout this time.

Night Swim Coffee

Night Swim Coffee: Guiben – Natural—CO-OP: Guiben
LOCATION: Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, China
ALTITUDE: 1620 MASL
VARIETY: Catimor
PROCESSES: Natural
Tasting Notes: Pink Lemonade, Strawberry Candy, Chocolate Malt
The first container of specialty coffee left Yunnan, China for Australia in late 2015. Over the last nine years, Yunnan’s specialty coffee production has increased in leaps and bounds in both quantity and quality. We’re typically not familiar with specialty grade Asian coffees, but the truth is that these coffees can pass quality tests with flying colors and display an enormous amount of sweetness, consistency, and complexity.
We purchased two lots from the project in Yunnan, both washed and naturally processed 100% Catimor lots. Both of these coffees are high in complexity and sweetness, offered varied cup profiles, and we are honored to represent the best of what Chinese Specialty Coffee production has to offer.

Onyx Coffee Lab : Doyenne — One 10oz Box of the World’s Best Female-Produced Coffee Once a Month + Roasted and shipped the first Wednesday of every month.

Doyenne is defined as a woman who is the most prominent person in a particular field. Coffee production is traditionally male led due to the cultural relationship dynamics in producing countries. Women have always contributed to and are often the backbone of coffee production, contributing detail oriented, quality-focused excellence to the field. Until recent years, they are rarely honored for this work. Doyenne seeks to identify and amplify the stories of woman achieving incredible marks in coffee. The selections are curated by Andrea Allen, co-founder of Onyx Coffee Lab and 2020 US Barista Champion. The heart is for women to collaborate and to boost each other’s work and achievement through stories.
