NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

To the surprise of no one before, during and after the Million Women March and the #MeToo campaign came to light, women have it especially rough in the mostly patriarchal societies in coffee-producing countries around the world. We in the producing, sourcing and roasting communities can and should do more to balance the scales. Badbeard's has endeavored to bring women producers' coffees to the marketplace since our inception, through forward-thinking projects like Café Femenino and women-run importers like Elan Organic (now part of InterAmerican Coffee). Hey, they do a huge share of the work, so why not the economic benefits as well?! Seems like a no-brainer.
I jumped at the chance to roast the fine Guatemala La Morena for obvious reasons…great coffee of course, but more to the point a harbinger of women-run, turnkey operations for the future.” La Morena” (brown/brown sugar) resulted from the joining of forces of three different producers and three different regions. It is harvested, produced, exported, imported, cupped and sold by the “alliance” of KARIN HERNANDEZ (Finca San Jose Buenavista) from San Juan Altotenango, CELESTE FUMAGALLI (Finca El Bonito, in (Conguaco Moyuta)and JOVITA CASTILLO (Finca Joya Grande, Santa Rosa). Their circumstances and farms vary greatly but they were each born into the coffee life and have risen to the top of the chain through persistence and vision. It must be noted that part of the project's success is owed to importer Genuine Origin's Volcafe Way program, which offers foundational, technical and financial amenities to women growers.
La Morena washed Arabica comprises several varietals and the farm elevations vary from 1200-1400 meters. In our light-medium roast profile there are abundant and varied notes of dark chocolate, walnut, cherry, brown sugar. The cup is clean and balanced, modestly bright, with a smooth finish….very “classic Guatemala”. The country is climbing back to prominence after years of rollercoasters in the Coffee Rust “plague” which adversely impacted the entire Central American/Mexican coffee sector. Highly recommended as a drip coffee, rich morning brew!

Colombia Pink Bourbon is back 1/22/18 Loved this coffee the last two years and jumped on a few bags when they arrived in Portland last week...admittedly heavy on Colombians these days but heck, they're fresh and tasty and unusual....about as far from the "Juan Valdez" coffee profile as I can imagine.
