Dual Axes is our year round blend and our go-to in the shop. It’s great for those who want a complex flavor, as well as those who want something not too challenging. If you lean towards liking your roast on the slightly darker side, this it our coffee for you.
The Santa Rosa beans comes from a farm dated back to 1881, who hosts it’s own volcano and grows the local national tree; the Ceibas. Mixed with the Columbian beans, this blend is guaranteed to be liked by everyone, and is a solid sipper.
Decaf - Colombia
Elevation: 1600 - 1700 MASL
Process: Sugarcane EA (ethyl acetate)
We take a lot of pride in roasting this exceptional decaf coffee. Due to the sugarcane processing method, which is a natural way of removing the caffeine, there have been no chemicals in contact with the coffee. It’s non-traditional, complex and sweet, and has notes of sweet cherries, maple syrup and candied almond.

NYERI HILL - Kenya
Region: Nyeri Hill County
Farm:Nyeri Hill Estate
Elevation: 1600 - 2200 MASL
Variety: SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11, Batian
This is not like your everyday Kenyan. Often people have a specific idea about how a Kenyan coffee is going to taste, but here you won’t find the typical tomato notes. This coffee is more floral and tea like, with a light body yet still has a lot of the sweet and savoury complexities. There is a lot to look for in this delicate bodied, floral coffee that is savoury, but not in-your-face savory. Some tasting notes are dark chocolate covered cherry, blood orange, apple juice, and black tea.
EL CIPRES - Peru
Farm: Finca El Cipress
Elevation: 1800 masl
Variety: Red and Yellow Caturra
This is a light and breezy coffee with notes of strawberry, coconut and vanilla. It has a nice, bright, berry acidity when hot and a medium, creamy body as it cools. Finca El Cipres is an unassumingly complex and inviting coffee.
ZALMARI - Costa Rica
Country: Costa Rica
Producers: Ceci Genis & Marigold Murray
Location: Cachi, Orosi Valley
Farm: Zalmari Coffee Estate, 100 hectares coffee, 80 hectares of protected forest
Altitude: 1000-1250 masl
Variety: washed caturra
Nestled between volcanic mountain ranges, leguminous shade trees grow amongst the fields of Atlantic coffee. Cold evening temperatures benefit the ripening of rich, full-flavored beans.
During the milling process, reduced amounts of water and anaerobic oxidation tanks ensure the water recycled back into the rivers is clean to protect the natural flora, fauna, and the forest.
Fourth generation Cecilia Genis runs Zalmari Coffee Estate with her mother, Marigold Murray. Since founding the Zalmari Coffee Estate in the 1920s, the Murray family have woven their values into their work: protect the environment with sustainable business practices, support the Cachí community, farm top-quality coffee.
Cecilia and Marigold are longtime members of the IWCA-Costa Rica (International Women’s Coffee Alliance). They are passionate about women’s empowerment, and their farm was the first to earn the WCC (Women Care Certified). This certification is designed to improve the sustainable lifestyle for women involved with cultivating, processing, trading, and exporting coffee.
Some of the tasting notes in this wonderful coffee are Pine nut, juniper and Passion fruit.
