Welcome to Summer! Summer in the northwest holds some great things that I love: fishing, floating, boating, hiking, vacations, and of course camping! And what better way to start your morning in camp than with a coffee that goes hand in hand with this adventure. Enter our El Salvador San Emilio coffee. This first offering in your July delivery has exceptional qualities. It’s smooth and sweet with a hint of honey and apricot but the main characteristic that you’ll notice as soon as you open the bag is an amazing scent of fresh s’mores, and the flavor in the cup follows just that, with a great chocolate and marshmallow body. It will transport you right back to that dessert you had the night before, and as you sip this coffee around your morning campfire I’m sure you’ll agree that it was a great addition to camp!
Not only is this an amazing coffee but the farm also provides medical facilities and helps sponsor a nearby school, truly making an impact in their community. This is what we refer to as sustainable farming practices.

The second bag you’ll find in your delivery is our Uganda coffee that we purchase from Kabum. Kabum does some amazing work in Uganda and if you follow the link it will take you to their mission statement where you can learn more about how much of an impact your purchase is making in the lives of those working to provide us with this unique coffee. In this cup you’ll find a medium body, a smooth chocolate and caramel base along with a hint of sweet cherries.
I hope you enjoy these offerings as much as I do! Have a safe and happy 4th and a wonderful July!
