Foundation An icon for our foundation genre coffee.


The coffees curated in the foundation genre are balanced and clean. They will be complex with low bitterness and a pleasing acidity. Flavor like this can only be achieved by growing the right coffee in the right place and paying meticulous attention to detail during the harvesting process.

Rwenzori, Uganda

For many years Adolfo Henrique Ferreira has been leading the way in Brazilian specialty coffee. His offerings are renowned for their sweet, clean cup profiles, with most cultivated on his beloved farm Passeio. Fazenda Pico Mirante is his latest passion project, where lots are separated and dried on raised “African beds”, allowing a more even circulation of air around the ripe cherries.

This 100% Bourbon natural lot was picked from the topmost elevation of Pico Mirante, appropriately named “The Lookout”. In our short capsules expect notes of green apple, macadamia and chocolate.

Hermosa Honey, Costa Rica

The area of Tarrazu in central Costa Rica is home to the Coope Dota, a cooperative born in 1960 at a time when coffee farming in the region was incredibly difficult. Unsustainable exporter relationships and long distances between mills meant the founding of the co-op completely transformed the lives of producers and their families.

Established with just 96 members, now 60 years on the co-op has an incredible 900 producers, growing stunning lots of Caturra, Catuai. This juicy Honey-processed lot has notes of melon, fig and caramel.
