IT ALL STARTS AT THE COFFEE FARM
This coffee was collected from 6 smallholder producers in San Juan Ozolotepec plus one farm in Santa Maria Ozolotepec owned by Bernadino and Carlos Martinez. There are many communities made up of smallholder farmers in this region. They almost always grow older varietals of Typica and Bourbon.

HOW DID WE ROAST THIS COFFEE?
This coffee is being roasted by Dave H. from Oct 11 to Nov 01 2020 at Pulley Collective in Red Hook, Brooklyn. We typically use the Loring S35 Kestrel roaster for this profile - this roaster roasts the beans through convection (heated air) roasting. We have strict guidelines for each of the coffee profiles, and this roast has to pass the development time ratio test as measured in real-time by the roasting software, Cropster. Once it does, it is approved for production.
We perform Quality Control via a process of coffee tasting called cupping on all of our production roasts twice a week at our facility in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Cupping is attended by Q-certified cupper Ian T., roaster Dave H.and founder Suyog M. All coffees are evaluated on a scoring scale of 0 to 3.
- 3.0 = exceptional roast - exceeds expectations
- 2.5 = on par with profile - matches expectations
- 2.0 = good roast, but 1 or 2 elements could be improved - needs improvement
- 1.5 or lower = failed - do not ship
