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:
Altitude: 5,500+ Feet
Producer: 36 Small, Family Farms
Varietal: Castillo and Caturra
Notes: Green Apple, Milk Chocolate
From the center of Colombia’s Huila province, Garzon has 3 microclimates: the Magdalena River Valley, a, humid, flat area with an average temperature of 84 degrees, Llano de la Virgen, an arid grassland and the mountainous Central Region region of eastern cordillera. This lot is sourced from 36 small producers farming an average of less than 4 acres apiece. Ripe cherries were fermented, washed and dried on patios and drying silos. We are roasting this bean dark, which produces a bold, memorable cup.
costa rica (Sold Out!)
Altitude: 3,950+ Feet
Producer: Otto Klotti Family
Varietal: Catuai and Caturra
Notes: Caramel, Chocolate, Pear
One of our all-time favorites and the selection that started it all. This year’s crop of 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.
Altitude: 4,750+ Feet
Producer: Las Nubes
Notes: Toffee, Pecan
Inspired by its high-altitude, Isidro Battle named his farm Las Nubes for ‘the clouds’ when he purchased in the 1920’s. Farm Manager Eduardo Moran Larin oversees Las Nubes' almost 100 years of coffee production experience. Leveraging impressive soil structure combined with proper fertilization techniques, Las Nubes is a special environment engineered for truly unique coffee production. Our selection is a Washed, Bourbon varietal producing a beautifully balanced, sweet cup with toffee and pecan notes.
Altitude: 6,200+ Feet
Producer: Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm
Varietal: Ethiopian Heirlooms
Notes: Blueberry, Honey
Grown in the Guji Zone of the Shakiso District roughly 300 miles from Addis Ababa, the Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm is owned by families that were born and raised there and have 30 years of coffee experience. Located in the shadows of evergreens providing layers of shade, the farms’ nutrient rich volcanic soil, high elevation and rainfall patterns allow coffee cherries to develop slowly. This contributes to the distinct blueberry and honey notes and heavy body experience. We hope you and your recipient enjoy as much as we do.
