Welcome to Phil & Sebastian. It’s not so much a business as it is the single-minded pursuit of a better cup of coffee. For the past decade we’ve spent most of our waking hours dedicated to the notion that coffee can and should be better than it is. We’ve travelled the world, micro-financed projects in coffee growing countries, custom built our own roaster, co-authored graduate level studies on water, and performed countless other harebrained feats in the service of our obsession. All in the hopes that the cup of coffee we pour today, will be just the tiniest bit better than the one we served yesterday.
It’s a fortunate thing if you’re our customer, and mildly unfortunate if you’re related to us. So, with the utmost earnestness, we invite you to come by one our cafes, visit a cafe that serves our coffee, or order a bag, and let us know how we’re doing. And when we say let us know how we’re doing, we mean it. Feedback can only make us better, and that’s why we’re here in the first place.
Maragogype is rare. Good Maragogype is even more rare. The Hartmann family grows a small amount of Maragogype on their Palo Verde farm. Maragogype grows well on the Hartmann farm. When I tasted this coffee for the first time, I was incredibly impressed by the immense sweetness in the cup and the seemingly never-ending list of complex flavours. The coffee is naturally processed using the Hartmanns’ meticulous method.
