Our second Education Lot from India from the 2016/2017 Harvest Year, this is yet another remarkably clean, remarkably enjoyable coffee from a terroir that is greatly underrepresented by the specialty coffee industry.
Homacho Waeno is our first release from southern Ethiopia this year, our previous lots having been selected from the western part of the country. The lot, which is made up of coffee from some 3,500 small holder producers, is certified organic, and comes to us via the Sidama Coffee Farmer's Cooperative Union.
In December of 2016 the Passenger green buying team took place in the Acevedo Cup, a juried competition to find, highlight and reward the best coffees from the 2016 main harvest in Acevedo, southern Huila. This lot, from producer Fernando Bustos, won not only our hearts, but also second prize in that competition.
Another seasonal offering from Western Ethiopia. Another stunner. The Hunda Oli Cooperative produced some of the best coffees that we tasted in Ethiopia from this past harvest. We are thrilled to share this lot with you.
As our Finca Candelaria Seasonal Offering comes to a close we are ready to release an Antiguan lot that showcases the flavors and cup profile that we so dearly love from this beautiful region.
We are over the moon about our latest collaboration and what it means for your flights, camping trips and those new to specialty coffee...
The Passenger offerings menu has always focused on presenting world class coffees. In releasing our Education Lots we hope to present a collection of coffees that not only taste wonderful, but have a pedagogical role as well.
Passenger's focus within Guatemala is in and around Antigua. This year we extended our relationships south with the addition of Finca Candelaria in Alotenango.
