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.

Desvelado #9

Desvelado #9 is comprised of high-scoring lots from producers in the Consacá and Ancuya regions of Colombia’s Nariño department. The area’s unusual climate — with high altitudes and dry conditions — has given Desvelado a deep and balanced cup profile.

Expect green apple and lime from this short capsule, with muscovado sugar to finish.

Long Capsule Long

Cajamarca Chirinos

This fully-washed Regional Select lot was grown in Peru’s up-and-coming Cajamarca region. The highest-scoring coffees from producers within Cajamarca were collected, cupped and combined to create Chirinos — a stunning example of Peru’s flavour potential.

Cajamarca Chirinos begins with poached pear, towards notes of grape and an almond brittle finish.
