These beans, fermented with cherry juice, will enchant you with tropical flavor notes of mandarin oranges and vanilla.
Orange X is a coffee process created by Felipe Trujillo. We've been working with Felipe for years and his Ventolera Orange coffee was the first experimentally-processed coffee we offered. Orange X starts with the Yellow Colombia coffee varietal grown on his farm, La Ventolera. The beans then undergo a unique process that involves washing them with cherry juice and subjecting them to acetic, lactic, and malic fermentation. This results in a one-of-a-kind flavor profile with notes of mandarin orange, sweet cream, vanilla, and a refreshing and bright finish.
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.
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.
We roast our coffee and select our teas to express the life it lived and to honor the skilled people who cultivate it. We’re passionate about sourcing, creating, and discovering products to elevate everyday life while strengthening connections and community.
