Bean Box Breakdown

When Maine, True North's owner and roaster, told us about this coffee, we couldn't wait to try it! It's a beauty from the beans up. Grown in the picturesque Valle de Cauca, Colombia, this coffee is the product of two siblings following in their grandparents' footsteps as coffee growers: their farm has been producing coffee since the 1930s. The brothers differentiate their farm through environmental oversight: their processing mills are designed to reduce water and fuel consumption, and the farm prides itself on its initiatives towards gender equality, fair wages, and educational opportunities for workers and their families.

And what a difference their efforts make! The flavors in this cup reflect the time, attention, and heritage of the farm: balanced sugars with round fruit flavors of cherry, plum, molasses, a marzipan-like nuttiness. Maine uses a longer roast profile on these beans to develop the sugars and ease the tart fruit flavors into a mellow, juicy harmony.

This coffee is not only roasted with love by one of Seattle's few independent women roasters, but the importer donates a portion of their profits on these beans to the ACLU. Great coffee to feel great about: now that's a Crown Jewel.

True North Coffee Roasters Story

This is what's know in the green coffee world as a Crown Jewel...the best of the best. Las Margaritas is a complex cup with cherry and almond notes and a sweet blood orange finish. Imagine cherry pie on the porch with your Grandma. Sounds great to me. Our importer is donating a $1.20 per roasted pound. Share a cup with someone you love.
