One of the most well-known farms in Antigua, Buena Vista sits in the shadow of the volcano, Volcan De Fuego at 1800 masl. Here, the Zelaya family has been producing coffee for generations and are well known throughout the specialty coffee community for their commitment to quality.
Buena Vista ranks among the most organized and beautifully cared for farms in all of Antigua; from its symmetrical rows of shade trees, to shrubs carefully pruned at the slightest hint of rust. This is a very tight operation. The Zelaya’s are heavily involved in every aspect of their coffee cultivation, from growing and harvesting to processing at their state-of-the art dry mill, and the export of every bean.
Beautifully complex and clean, with notes of melon, vanilla, dark chocolate, this coffee is the perfect anchor for our new 01 Espresso.ULISES NEIRA, PERU
Ulises Neria’s farm sits at roughly 1800 masl in the village of El Huabo in the San Ignacio region of Peru. The climate in San Ignacio, a region that hugs the Northern border of Ecuador, is well known for being exceptional for coffee cultivation. The combination of climate and soaring altitudes help produce beautiful complex coffees with sparkling bright acidity. Luckily for Ulises Neira, his farm nestled right in the eye of this perfect storm.
Ulises processes all of his coffee on his farm on a small depulper, after which the coffee is traditionally washed, dry fermented, and dried on raised beds for several days. Much like the Zelayas, Ulises has a hand in every aspect of his coffee’s lifespan from seed to export and his attention detail leads to an exceptional coffee.
Bright and complex with notes of citrus, black cherry, and a buttery finish this coffee exceptionally rounds out our new 01 Espresso.NYAMULINDA, RWANDA
The 20% Rwanda component hails from the Nyamulinda washing station, built and established by Immaculate and Francine, friends who are both from the Nyamagabe district in Southern Rwanda. After realizing the potential for coffee in their home village, they decided to grow it themselves, planting over 20,000 coffee trees on their combined farmland. Eventually, they would decide to process the coffee on their own, rather than transport it to other nearby wet mills, focusing on elevating the quality achieved on their farms.
Born from this dedication to quality production, the Nyamulinda washing station was built in 2016 to process not only their own crops but also welcomed cherries from neighboring farmers. Maintaining consistent, high-quality production at the core of their ethos, they aim to expand Nyamulinda’s capacity and grow their volume beyond the 220 tons of cherries processed this year alone.
We can thank Nyamulinda for the sweetness in our new 01 with notes of pineapple, plum, and black tea. This coffee links Ulises Neira and Buena Vista together in perfect harmony.
