We are excited to announce that we are now able to produce cold brew....and lots of it! Jim has been experimenting with different roasts, and we have found the medium roast Guatemala to be the most flavorful! We were able to test this out at the CEDA (Community and Economic Development Association) Annual Meeting at the Round Barn in Red Wing, MN, and it was a HUGE hit!! Let us know if you'd be interested in purchasing you're very own gallon!
We recently sourced a new coffee from Guatemala. It is a microlot coffee, meaning that it comes from one single farm, instead of a region of multiple farms. It is unique, fully traceable, and tells an interesting story. This amazingly sweet coffee, comes from the Isabelita farm in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. Ismar Isabel Martínez Sáenz owns the 19-manzana farm Isabelita, which is planted with about 1,200 coffee trees, 85 percent of the property. Ismar grows Caturra, Pache, and Chimeco variety coffee. After being picked the coffees are depulped the same day and fermented dry for one or two days, depending on the weather. It's washed twice with a demucilaging machine, which uses friction to remove the fruit from the seeds before drying. The coffee is dried on concrete patios for 3–7 days. Tasting notes for this coffee are savory and sweet with a big tart acidity and sugary mouth feel; very fruity with chocolate, caramelized sugar, and citrus fruit flavors. We have come to LOVE this coffee.
