Larrea inspires us with the promise that despite challenging circumstances we face year to year, growth endures even in the harshest of conditions. Both components of our second Larrea Blend seasonal survived a desolate year in climate as well as the desert of isolation brought upon by Covid-19, and are the product of determination and hard work. Our goal was to blend two coffees grown over 7,000 kilometers apart from vastly different regions—Ethiopia and Indonesia—and showcase their harmonious pairing. We feel the result is a uniquely balanced blend with rustic, earthy flavors from Indonesia anchored by Ethiopia’s floral and citrus qualities.
Larrea is approachable for those that love Single Origin coffees and balanced for those who usually gravitate towards a blend. So we took to the desert where warm, soil-like balance meets complex acidity. Larrea is a bush that thrives in arid temperatures—native to California and Mexico. When first trying this coffee, we experienced pleasantly dry; herbaceous flavors met with a tart burst of fruit forwardness. Our goal was to blend these two coffees, grown over 4,000 miles apart and from vastly different growing regions, to showcase their harmonious pairing.
Our first component is from a women-led cooperative in Sumatra Aceh Gayo. This cooperative has been around for over twenty-five years, and its primary goal is to support and empower women and younger generation farmers. They begin their processing by pulping cherries in the afternoon, and then they are fermented for 8-24 hours. After that, cherries undergo a detailed double and triple hand-sorting screening process to select only the ripest and densest ones.
Our second component is from the Ajere washing station in the Yirgacheffe district of Ethiopia. There are 850 members of this cooperative that deliver cherries from farms ranging between 1-2 hectares of land. Coffees are sorted and processed at the mill, then are fermented from 36-48 hours before laid out to dry on raised beds for 12-15 days.
