Espresso - Big Shot

Big Shot is our more developed espresso roast with a big body and sweet, chocolaty profile. We challenge ourselves to create a truly great dark roast without the usual negative flavors such as smokiness and bitterness.

 

Big shot makes a big impression, is a real crowd-pleaser, and gets on very well with all milk options. 

 

Flavor notes:

Dark chocolate, Medjool dates, Sacher cake, red apple and stone fruits

 

Capim Branco - Brazil - 70%

 

This coffee comes from the Andrade family's farm, Fazenda Capim Branco, in the high, green Cerrado Mineiro in the north of Minas Gerais state, on the border with Bahia State. The estate has been in the Andrade family for over a century and is one of the oldest coffee farms in Minas Gerais. Nowadays, it is managed by brothers Ismael and Eduardo. Following in their ancestors’ footsteps, the brothers have a deep respect for nature.

 

The farm has well-defined seasons, elevation between 1100-1250m, balanced rain, and the perfect terroir for producing coffee; for all this, the brothers feel truly blessed and strive to preserve the surrounding nature as best as possible.  The Andrade family's attentive husbandry and warm tropical climate produce uniform blossoming and maturation on their Yellow Catuai trees. Thus creating excellent conditions for producing this natural process coffee.

Fazenda Capim Branco was the Andrade family’s first farm; however, since the 1970s, the family has been very active in establishing new farms to expand their cultivation area, all aligned with their mission of producing coffee of the very highest quality.

 

Combined with the natural conditions of the region, meticulous crop management, forward-thinking crop planning, and post-harvest selection, the final result from all Andrade family farms is excellent and award-winning quality.

 

Mario Moreno - Honduras 30%

 

 

Mario Moreno is one of the seven brothers of the Moreno family. Together with his family, he has had an exceptional journey in the specialty coffee business and has been one of the driving forces in transforming the way coffee is cultivated in their neighborhood.

 

Their family "dynasty" started with the original El Filo farm and the patriarch of the family, Daniel Moreno. Steep hills, high altitude, close proximity to rain forests, and the striking contrast between the coldness of the nights and the warmth of the sunny days have a great effect on creating complex flavor notes, depth, sweetness, and brightness descriptive to the coffees from this area. Combined with generations of knowledge, passion, and dedication, this becomes a winning recipe, so much so that they are no strangers to the Cup of Excellence winners list. Mario himself has five wins in the last ten years.

 

We met the Moreno family for the first time in 2014, and they have played a significant role in our path to specialty coffee. In previous years, we have worked with his brothers Miquel, Gerardo, and Danny, as well as his nephew Dolmin. As the family continues to evolve, with the younger generation taking on more responsibility, the Moreno family’s commitment to their buyers remains steadfastly loyal and forward-looking.
