Our green coffee buying team visited last winter to see their latest projects in action. Take a look.
Each spring we eagerly anticipate the arrival of a new harvest from our longtime Direct Trade partners Finca Santa Maria. This winter, our green coffee buying team visited Armando Portilla during harvest to observe picking, sorting, and processing. Take a look.
Mario Natural is a selection from Hacienda La Esmeralda's Special Reserve collection, which is sold in limited quantities by Direct Trade outside of Esmeralda's auction. We've been proud to partner with the industry-leading Peterson family for many years.
Two of our most recent single-origin offerings are not only new to our lineup, but new to the coffee industry as a whole: Marsellesa and Starmaya were only recently made available to commercial coffee growers.
