Behind the cup

Larrea Blend is back and ready to kickstart all of your sunny summer days. Lively tropical notes of Vibrant and fruity notes of pomelo, watermelon, and orange zest come together to create our signature summer blend. We blended two of our returning favorite coffees for this year’s Larrea Blend. A perfectly balanced blend of a sweet natural Ethiopian coffee from Guji Highlands combined with a bright Indonesian coffee from Ribang Gayo. Your perfect summer companion has returned.

Brewing Suggestions

I absolutely adore Larrea when brewed as a pourover. The first time I made a cup, I was hit with citrus notes and was astounded by how much depth and flavor there was hidden within.

STORY

Coming from Indonesia, Ribang Gayo is both tart and clean and our first ever purchase from Indonesia. Asman Arianto is originally from Palembang, South Sumatra but has lived and worked in Aceh Tengah since 1998. He found his interest in coffee production while living here which caused him to shift to collecting cherries and processing coffees. He experimented with fully-washed, honey-process, and natural on his farm, familiarizing himself with various processing methods.

The natural Ethiopia Guji Highlands component was the perfect fit to blend with Ribang Gayo. Situated between Sidamo and Yirgacheffe is the region of Guji Highlands. Both neighbors are known for their specialty coffee and unique flavor profiles, and the region of Guji is of no difference in their distinct flavor profiles. Until 2002, Guji was considered a part of the Yirgacheffe region but established itself as its own region. This unique gathering of cherries sets this region apart in flavor and overall cup experience. This farm was founded in 2012 and is entirely family-run. It is located on 250 hectares of land (or 617 acres), and the farm reaches up to 2300 MASL. The farm is nestled in and surrounded by a rainforest where they practice organic farming. The farmers also help neighboring smallholding producers by purchasing coffee and making the mill available for processing their coffees.

Less fruity side. Even I prefer fruity and brighter feeling recently. But this is another very different but good surprise

Great job on fixing order

On a recent delivery eagerly awaiting Larrea seasonal blend I received the wrong coffee. I called verve they apologized profusely and sent me a bag of Larrea, no additional charge, that very same day. I’ve always loved Verve coffees. Thanks for showing me your appreciation in return.

Fantastic Coffee

This coffee is amazing. Verve is our favorite coffee since the first day we tried it. It's a shame that the last order we've made we accidentally ordered at the old address (we've moved a few days before placing the order), which is 4000 miles away from our new address and we didn't get a chance to enjoy this limited edition coffee again =(

Best coffee + fantastic customer service!

I ordered the limited edition Larrea Season Blend for my boyfriend's birthday. I received a good number of updates from Verve around tracking and shipment of the coffee. They were very transparent about the delay in shipping due to issues from USPS' end. Verve filled the order and had it ready for shipping within a day! On the day that it should have arrived, USPS updated my tracking to say that it had been dropped at the mailbox even though it hadn't. I contacted Verve about this and they responded straight away. They kindly asked if I would wait 24hrs as they have seen this has been happening with the postal service due to underfunding. They said that if it does not arrive the following day they will send me another bag. Luckily it arrived the next day.

The coffee is incredible! It has a great fruity flavor which I love ( and everyone else does too). I have tried a number of their blends and keep buying from them because their coffee is one of the best I have tried. I can't wait to continue trying their new flavors.

Many thanks to the team at Verve!

Larrea must be code for delicious

Almost finished my 3rd bag, this blend works great for AeroPress and Cold Brew. There are some nice fruit notes either way and the beans smell heavenly.
