Colectivo’s history with Kulaktik dates back to 1998 when we were introduced to the cooperative through its Milwaukee sister parish. Located in the highlands of Chiapas, the group now boasts more than 250 members who grow coffee at elevations ranging from 1,350 to 1,800 meters. After years of dependence on outside organizations, Kulaktik – meaning “vine” in the Mayan language Tzeltal – now carries its own export license and continues to focus on quality improvements. The result is a coffee rich in flavors of plum, dark chocolate, and concord grape with a medium body. We’re proud of our longstanding relationship with the co-op and look forward to seeing their progress over the years to come. Enjoy!
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.
