Mighty Seed Coffee Roasters imports specialty coffee beans from around the world and choose to support Farms and Organizations that give back to the communities they are grown in. Below are some of our current favorites with tasting notes:
Brazil - Fezenda IP - Yellow Bourbon
The Coffee - Sweet with tart fruit acidity and a creamy mouthfeel; toffee, cashew, pecan, and a hint of lemon.
Brazil is a big, beautiful coffee country and we are always actively seeking new ways to discover, develop, and source quality coffees from one of our main export partners. The quality and diversity from various regions and microregions have inspired the development of microlot programs with some of the country's most innovative producers.
Costa Rica - La Trinidad
The Coffee - Sweet, savory and juicy with tart acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; grapefruit, lime, toffee and white sugar flavors.
Costa Rica has hoped to differentiate itself among coffee-growing nations through the diversity of profiles in its growing regions. Another development that has helped coffee producers differentiate themselves are micromills, or private wet- and sometimes dry-milling facilities that producers or groups of smallholders build to control the processing and lot separation of their coffees. The ability for a producer to separate top lots from more standard coffees; sell the lots at corresponding, appropriate prices; and gain individual recognition for their work and quality, has had a rippling effect among the communities from which we source.
Ethiopia - Layo Taraga
The Coffee - Balanced, soft and sweet with winey fruit acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; lots of berry flavors with cherry, chocolate, lemon and blueberry.
Ethiopia is the "birthplace" of Arabica coffee and holds a near-legendary status among coffee-producing countries. Growing, processing, and drinking coffee is part of the everyday way of life, and has been for centuries. Mighty Seed Coffee Roasters supplier serves 500 smallholder farms, each of whom owns about 1/2 hectare of land in the area around Haro Wachu town in the Uraga District of Ethiopia.
Guatemala - Huehuetenango
The Coffee - Sweet with tart acidity and a smooth mouthfeel; toffee, almond and citrus fruit flavors.
Despite its relatively small size, Guatemala’s coffee-producing regions have distinct regional profiles that are influenced primarily by varieties and microclimate. Developing relationships within several of the growing regions allows smallholder farmers the opportunity to place a larger selection of their harvest into the hands of the same buyers, which provides not only price stability and market access, but also the ability to enjoy recognition and gain valuable feedback about their production.
