While with our R2, R3, and Limited Release coffees you are ordering a specific origin, our approach to the R1 coffees is a little different. The coffee is still single-origin, sourced direct from individual farms and co-ops, and follows the same rigorous quality standards we obsess over, but we roast all our R1 coffees for a consistent flavour profile. We select sweet coffees that are approachable, chocolatey, nutty, and with lower acidity. These are what you would expect from a classic coffee, but elevated. Look for offerings from Costa Rica, Honduras, and Guatemala (to name a few).
This coffee was decaffeinated at a facility called DESCAFESOL, which is actually the first and only coffee decaffeination facility in Colombia. Here, the coffee goes through a unique water and ethyl acetate (EA) process. The water is from the nearby mountains and the EA is naturally sourced from sugar cane.
