Tasting Notes: Pineapple Soda, Cocoa, Orange

Another fresh arrival from Colombia, this one from Pastor Imbajoa, a fourth generation coffee farmer in the Buesaco municipality of Nariño, one of our favorite growing regions. Pastor has been growing coffee here for nearly 20 years on his extremely small farm, called Pajajoy, where he also grows plantains and bananas.

When will my package ship?

Generally, we try and ship all packages the next business day from when the order was placed. If you ever have a question on the status of your order, just shoot us a message via our contact form.

Do you offer free shipping?

All orders over $35 get free shipping!

How do you ship?

All shipments are done via USPS Priority Mail. Packages generally arrive in 2-3 days, depending on your proximity to Philadelphia.

Do you ship internationally?

We do offer international shipping but it can be pretty expensive, especially overseas. If you are interested in buying coffee internationally, please drop us a line via our contact form.

Is your coffee organic and/or fair trade?

While some of our coffees may be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when buying, and do not market them as such. Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology. As green coffee quality increases so do prices. Because of this, we typically pay well above Fair Trade pricing for our single origin coffees.

How fresh is my coffee when I receive it?

We roast Monday through Friday each week, so generally, we try and ship coffee within 24 hours from roast whenever possible. With our shipping times, that means you should always receive your coffee within 2-5 days from roast, depending on your location and proximity to Philadelphia. 

Do you have recommendations for brewing?

Yes! First and foremost, whenever possible, grind directly before brewing. This will help maintain freshness, and help you get the most from your coffee. Additionally, we recommend a ratio of about 1:16.8, (so about 22g of coffee for a 12oz cup). If your brew is tasting too weak, try using a finer grind size; and if it’s a slower, heavier brew, try to make the grind more coarse. If you have any additional questions, or want to get into more detail, feel free to drop us a line in our contact form.

Coffee Details

When we first tasted this coffee, we were immediately blown away by the level and quality of acid in the cup. Tons of Pineapple, Tangerine, and Mango, to an extent that felt almost artificial. The final product is balanced with sweetness in the form of cocoa and toffee. This is one of the most balanced coffees we've had in quite a while.

Of his coffee, Pastor says, "Coffee is not only a way of supporting my family... I love to drink coffee. It's delicious. That is why I cultivate it."

He warns that he is concerned about climate change and its effects on his crop. "We have to be very careful to maintain the humidity of the coffee (in parchment)."

"Thank you for consuming my coffee," he says.
