Espresso - Zeitgeist

Zeitgeist is created to present a balanced, sweet, and well-structured blend that works wonderfully as a stand-alone espresso as well as a base for all milky beverages. Like all of our coffees, Zeitgeist has been cultivated with a focus on economically and ecologically sustainable farming practices.

 

As the spirit of the time, Zeitgeist represents the seasonality of coffee growing. The coffees in the blend change seasonally to ensure freshness, but the cup profile carries the same delicious characteristics.

 

Espresso:

Thick, creamy body, and high sweetness with dried cherry, cacao nibs, hazelnut butter, and long chocolate aftertaste.

 

Cappuccino:
Nougat-like and creamy, balanced and sweet cappuccino.

 

Tacuba Impossible - El Salvador - 60%

 

Tacuba is a low- to mid-elevation coffee town on the north side of Imposible National Park. The Buenos Aires Coffee School has created a special program for the coffee towns surrounding this park that is called Impossible Project, with a double meaning:

Firstly, it refers to the name of the park, and secondly, because the goals of the project are very ambitious. These goals can be divided into three categories including the environment, social, and quality. For the environment, the project aims to enhance the park's natural environment by creating a buffer zone by planting native shade trees and promoting sustainable farming practices. Socially the project's goal is to support coffee production through seminars and free classes so that farmers can reduce their costs, improve their production, and hopefully get motivated to continue growing coffee for the next generations. With quality, the short-term goal is to pay more for well-harvested coffee to create micro-lots from these areas and the long-term goal is to develop new varieties that are rust-resistant and very high-yielding while at the same time having exotic profiles such as floral and fruity notes, for creating high-quality micro-lots from low to medium altitude areas.

 

Limmu Kossa - Ethiopia - 40%

 

This coffee comes from Genet Seifu. She cultivates Jarc-varieties on her 100-hectare farm under forest cover. Genet employs 14 full-time employees on its farm and up to 200 during the peak of the harvest.

 

Women have a vital role in the specialty coffee, have a strong involvement in the farms, and represent more than 70% of the labor in the fields, the harvest, the sorting of the beans, etc. However, only 10% are entrepreneurs, and only 20% are landowners (including co-ownership with their spouses). Increasing the income of women producers has a direct and positive impact on the education of children and the comfort of the home.

 

The Limmu Kossa terroir is located in the Oromo region, about 80 km north of the city of Jimma, within the appellation of the same name. This natural coffee is collected in a forest of various ancient species. Here, coffee growing contributes to the maintenance of the forest area, and the richness of the soils and the environment of this region gives this coffee its specificity. It is prepared in the station of the Dabessa brothers, who have developed their coffee activity for ten years and now sell their products internationally.
