In the choice of coffee for our espresso subscription we look for sweetness and body, paired with coffee varieties that are chocolate and caramel-forward tastes. We usually change coffee every six to eight months.
This subscription is suited for coffee lovers, that want to keep a constant in their coffee drinking.
We are proud to serve you our first direct trade. David visited Sancoffee, the exporter and milling company in Campo das Vertentes in the State of Minas Gerais in Brazil.
We were on the hunt for a chocolate forward coffee that will please all types of coffee drinkers. After meeting many farmers, large and small, and cupping many different coffees, we decided to go for a blend of varieties from 6 different farms.

The Testi West Arsi Washing Station was established in 2010 and serves about 850 smallholder producers in the area. The farmers deliver their cherry to the washing station, where it is depulped, fermented for 24–48 hours, and washed before being dried on raised beds for 12-15 days.
Testi is a family-owned producer and exporter in Ethiopia. They own a farm and washing stations in the Guji region, and have relationships with partners in Limu and also West Arsi – where this coffee was grown.
Ethiopia’s going through an unusual shift in coffee production, with the formerly tightly government controlled coffee production and export business going through a wave of deregulation.
