A cooler growing climate results in coffee beans that are slower growing and result in a much denser bean.
Denser beans absorb heat differently – with a resulting intensity of flavour when roasted carefully, in small, custom curated batches, after you place your order with us
These beans are rated as specialty grade coffee and are hyper local. We work with farmers in three countries only: Guatemala, Colombia and Brazil, with a particular emphasis on Guatemala where we also currently support the community in three ways: Girls in school, Rebuilding initiatives and with Renovations – a customized giving program where every dollar donated is a full dollar to the community. HVC absorbs all associated administrative expenses
“Speciality grade coffee” means in every 300 gr sample, you will find five or fewer defects. For comparison purposes, supermarket coffee, considered “Commodity grade,” has over 86 defects per sample size! Factor in our traditional, cast-iron “just in time” roasting method, perfected by Roast Master Wallace Mark and shipped to you the same day it’s roasted, and we’re confident in our claim: “Offering an elevated coffee taste experience for the true coffee connoisseur.” This is sophisticated coffee for serious coffee lovers.
