Friar Minor presents all of flavors we love in a bolder, more robust package retaining the concentrated structure that only well produced and crafted coffees can offer. Most of the coffee in this blend is processed in the traditional washed method for a coveted clean and crisp finish. But we also love to add a small proportion of natural and honey process coffees to push some lifted fruit through the deeper roast for a wonderful balance that is perfect for adding cream but sweet and clean enough to enjoy on its own.
This old school dark roast is crafted from new emerging pioneer producers and takes its name from the old school name for the followers of Francis of Assisi, the Order of Friars Minor who live fraternally and peacefully in solidarity with the natural world and the poor. In some ways this is the darker old school counterpart to Little Brother in the earlier stages of a journey toward holistic sustainability and expression. We prioritize early stage opportunities for Pioneer Partners to empower their potential through relationships toward a connection in the flow of everyday extraordinary coffee you can believe in.
This particular rendition combines our Colombian in La Florida, Burundi producers on Muninya Hill with a naturally procsessed coffee and an emerging producer from Honduras named Dario Baide. Dario is one of the first producers we are offering in our Bonaventure Coffee Project Series that works to create connection and opportunity for farmers threatened by the COVID19 pandemic economic fallout.
