Our November 2017 Coffee Selections

SYPCOFFEE always means discerning. Fresh roasted. Single-origin. Small-lot. Because you and those whom you have entrusted us to gift on your behalf deserve an exceptional cup every time. Below, our current coffee selections for gifting or home:

Colombia

Altitude: 5,500-7,200 Feet
Producer: Small, Family Run Farms
Process: Washed
Varietal: Castillo, Caturra
Roast: Medium
Notes: Chocolate, Cinnamon & Maple

Producing a startlingly juicy, bold cup this coffee is grown in the incredibly high-altitude Narino region of Colombia, a small area bordering Ecuador and the Pacific Ocean. Steady sunlight, minimal temperature variation between day and night and rich volcanic soils perpetuate a deep, sweet coffee. Farms in this region are also generally family run and small, averaging 2.5 acres each. Highly dependent on the quality of their yields, family production of coffee here is an artisanal process which explains much of the experience this coffee seems to produce every time.

Costa Rica

Altitude: 3,950+ Feet
Producer: Otto Klotti Family
Process: Washed, Sun-Dried
Varietal: Caturra, Catuai
Roast: Medium
Notes: Sweet Cherry, Honey & Graham

This beautiful coffee affords discernible flavor notes marked by an exceptionally clean finish and we remain impressed with every single cup. This remarkable bean is grown on the Otto Klotti family's 148 acre Candelaria Estate near the town of Palmares in Costa Rica's Central Valley. The Swiss and Costa Rican Klotti family has operated the estate since 1965 and is extremely active in the local community, sponsoring schools and sports facilities.

Papua New Guinea 

Altitude: 5,000+ Feet
Producer: Sigri Estate
Process: Washed

The complete process ensures an extremely balanced cup with a  simply startling flavor profile.
