Collection: Single Origin Coffee

Discover the Flavor Profiles of Origin

Single origin coffees allow coffee lovers to explore the unique flavor profiles that emerge from distinct geographic growing regions. By sourcing beans from a single farm or cooperatives within a defined region, the taste and aroma of the coffee truly represents its place of cultivation.

What is Single Origin Coffee?

As defined by the Specialty Coffee Association, single origin coffee refers to coffee beans that are all grown within a single known geographic origin. This could be as small as a single farm or collectively from a group of nearby farms. Unlike blended coffees where beans from different origins are combined, single origin coffees allow the nuanced characteristics imparted by the soil, climate, elevation and growing practices of a particular area to shine through in each cup.

The Benefits of Single Origins

  1. Traceability - Knowing the exact farm or cooperative a coffee came from provides transparency.
  2. Seasonality - Single origins are harvested and have a limited window of freshness to be enjoyed at their peak before next year's crop.
  3. Complexity of Flavor - Factors like elevation, rainfall and sunlight create flavors unique to an origin like notes of berry, chocolate or nuts.
  4. Sustainability - By sourcing directly from growers, roasters can ensure ethical growing and fair wages through partnerships.
