Our July 2018 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 newest coffee selections for gifting or home:

Brazil

Altitude: 3,150+ Feet
Producer: Marinalva Ivo das Neves
Process: Fully Washed
Varietal: Yellow and Red Catuai
Roast: Medium
Notes: Brown Sugar, Cream, Buttery

This coffee, sourced from Fazenda Riacho Doce, a single estate owned by Marinalva who, in 1986, took over her farm located on the Vitoria da Conquista plateau in the town of Barra do Choca, is special. Ripe coffee cherries are harvested during the day and taken to the washing station on the farm by days end where they are de-pulped and left to rest in fermentation tanks up to 15 hours. Afterwards, they are washed and left to slowly dry in greenhouses. This process, along with the region's unique microclimate, helps produce one of the creamiest bodied coffees we have come across.

Guatemala

Altitude: 3,600+ Feet
Producer: John Schippers
Process: Washed
Varietal: Caturra
Roast: Medium
Notes: Pecan, Molasses

John Schippers farm, Finca San Luis El Volcanito in Pueblo Nuevo Vinas in the Santa Rosa region, dates back to 1881. Between the Guatemalan mountains, beans grow on very fertile land courtesy of the farm's private volcano. The farm is also home to 11 worker families who are provided land for their own crops and their own school built in 2014 supporting pre-kindergarten through 6th grade educations, In addition, the Schippers family recently renovated the onsite church, right down to new pews and bibles. The Schippers 2 daughters, Paulina and Dany, make up Dos Ninas Coffee Importers, and this is through whom we discovered these remarkable beans and more importantly, family. We hope this cup provides as much enjoyment in taste as it does it knowing your gift also supports such a wonderful family. 

Colombia
