This coffee is processed by carbonic maceration. If that sounds strange, that's because it definitely is for coffee. Carbonic maceration is common in the wine industry, but more and more coffee farmers are experimenting with processing techniques and finding amazing results.

Once picked, the coffee cherries ferment in a tank for 72 hours. Then the cherries are depulped, and the beans are submerged in juices from the initial fermentation. At this stage, natural yeasts interact with the parchment that covers the cherries imparting some amazing flavors. Both processes take place in an oxygen restricted environment, or "anaerobic fermentation."

Where its from

This coffee is sourced from our partners at Unblended. A native Colombian, and good friend, Lucas Cuadros helps connect us to farmers like Felipe Trujillo. Felipe had a successful career as a CEO at an office supply company, but chose a career-path-change and decided to help his father manage the traditional coffee farm they had inherited from his grandfather. Led by passion, from day one, he began drawing inspiration from the wine industry, where he became a disciplined student of fermentation processes. Today, his farm, La Ventolera, has become a regional institution for specialty coffee. There he preaches his passion for coffee designing and teaches young farmers the art and science of coffee processing.

Spot on

Phenomenal cup. Citrusy, vanilla-y, and smooth. Wife and I were very pleased with this one.

Sweet, but balanced

Using a Chemex, these beans were consistently sweet. The tasting notes were very much evident while remaining balanced.

Well worth it

Fantastic coffee with wonderful notes.


By you? Yes. By us, sadly, no. Currently, we can only ship whole-bean coffee.

We roast to order and ship Monday-Thursday. Orders are usually fulfilled the production day after they are placed (for example, orders placed on Monday will ship on Tuesday). Orders placed Thursday-Sunday will be fulfilled and shipped on Monday.

Freshness is critical to fully enjoying coffee. We roast to order to ensure your coffee is at peak freshness when it arrives. Sometimes our shipping partners experience delays due to weather, heightened demand, technical issues, pandemics, or aliens. All of which is out of our hands, except the aliens, but that's not for here.

If your package is delayed, let us know and we'll track it down and escalate its delivery. If it's delayed more than 2 weeks past the shipment date, and your order includes coffee, we'll either refund your money or ship you fresh coffee at no cost.
