Another year has come and gone, which means it's time for another exceptional coffee from Maria Damaris Medina’s Santa Elena farm in Colombia! We look forward to these lots every year for their consistent sweetness and clarity - and this year is no exception. The lot this year is a mix of Caturra and Castillo plants that deliver on the quality we’ve come to expect from Huila and from Ms. Medina’s coffees.

Similar to other Santa Elena lots, this coffee strikes a great balance between notes of bright orange and a more substantive, dark chocolate. Of course, there’s a floral quality in the background providing some levity - but on the whole, this is a coffee with a profile that’s composed and predictably delicious. Santa Elena is the sort of coffee that won’t overpower the rest of your breakfast - it’s an easy drinker that we just can’t stop sipping on no matter when it’s brewed, and applying a Classic roast really does this coffee justice. Cheers!

Best breakfast coffee for those who don't like strong expressos

This coffee was a hit in my house, The aroma smells amazing and taste just as good as it smells. Its chocolate and orange notes contrast perfectly together and taste like heaven in a cup when mixed with boiled milk. The kids loved it, my fiancé loved it. would definitely order again
