Sweet and tropical notes of fresh Kiwi are followed by an almost tooth aching sweetness of spun sugar. It's held together in a juicy and bouncy mouthfeel.

  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    La Colmena - Spanish for “beehive” - sits perched at one of the highest points in one of our favorite municipalities within the Santa Barbara region, Las Flores. Arturo Paz gave his farm this name upon noticing a reoccurring honey-like sweetness in the coffees — We couldn’t agree more.

    Paz represents a generation of young coffee producers in the Santa Barbara region committed to producing world-class organic specialty coffee. Having placed in the Cup of Excellence year-after-year, Paz' La Colmena is one of the top-producing farms in the country, and his coffee, a personal favorite of ours at Verve.

    Not only is Arturo an exemplary producer, but a formidable cupper as well. In addition to overseeing his well-manicured lots of Yellow Catuai, Pacas, Bourbon, and now Gesha, he’s responsible for quality control at his uncle's Beneficio San Vicente where he - and hundreds of other local farmers - deliver and dry-mill their coffee for export.

Never run out of coffee again.

For the past three years, I've been drinking Verve single origin coffees daily and have had a lot of great cups of coffee. (I brew pour overs, medium grind, 202 degree water.) This batch of La Colmena was astonishing: the depth and complexity was on another level; one of the greatest coffees I've had in my life.
