Named for the resplendent long-tailed quetzal (ket-SAL), the national bird of Guatemala and also its currency namesake, this exceptional coffee is produced on the southwestern shores of Lago de Atitlán. It is there that Tz'utujil-speaking, small-scale Mayan farmers grow typica, bourbon, caturra, and red and yellow catuaí cultivars at an average of 1,600 meters above sea level. The medium body and juicy acidity take flight when rounded out by flavors of milk chocolate, citrus, and tropical fruits.
Colectivo @ Origin
Starting in 1993, we began sourcing coffee from origin. Through developing long-term farmer and co-op partnerships, we can be involved in every step of creating a great coffee experience. By nature, sourcing and roasting delicious coffee can seem like a moving target, and over the last 20 years we have embraced a culture of continual improvement to bolster our efforts. We now offer a wide range of wonderful coffees. From our “Featured Farm Series” of extremely limited, special lots to our carefully managed Single Origin and legacy blends, there is something for every palate. And if we've learned one thing along the way, it's that there is always more work to be done.
Roasted In Riverwest
Every single bean we source is roasted, blended, packaged, and shipped fresh from our roastery in the Riverwest neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. All of our coffee is roasted by hand on two very-old-but-very-awesome, manually operated Probat roasters, and all of our blending is done after roasting.
