Bold flavors of Dark Chocolate, Dried Orange Peel and Berries with a Spicy yet Balanced Dark Roast Finish

Free shipping when you subscribe

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.

Bolivia Jaime Condori


Grown by Jaime Condori in Kantutani, Caranavi. We met Jaime in 2017 as a neighbor of longtime partner Juan Jose Machicado.  Jaime is a new producer in our program aspiring toward better quality and connection.  His coffee is typically rather fruity in addition to its dark chocolate notes.

Honduras Orquidea


Grown by Benjamin Paz in El Cedral, Santa Barbara.  This small lot was almost forgotten in our inventory and is making a surprise appearance in Friar Minor adding intensity and juicy qualities from an outstanding site and producer.

Honduras Adan Sagastume Natural


Grown by Adan Sagustume in El Dorado, Santa Barbara.  This parainema variety in the sun dried natural process adds a kiss of deep fruit component to the blend from one of our most favorite regions in the world.
