Indonesia Flores Wawo Muda
The relatively small island of Flores on the southern edge of the Indonesian archipelago is an exciting newcomer to the specialty coffee market! This micro-lot comes to us from two producers – Albertus Gua and Bernardus Bere – whose farms lie on the slopes of Wawo Muda, an active volcano on Flores that erupted as recently as 2001. Most of the coffee grown in this hilly region ends up being wet-hulled, but Pak (“Mr.”) Albert and Om (“Uncle”) Bernardus hand-wash their parchment before drying it on raised beds for up to one week. Their attention to quality control has resulted in a cup profile not commonly found in coffees from Indonesia: juicy with notes of lemon/lime and dried apricot with a silky body. Enjoy!
This limited edition coffee is available in 12oz bags, Whole Bean only.
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.
