Soft and Gentle Opening to Vibrant Citrus and Deep Red Berries with a Smooth Medium Roast Finish
Brother Sun shines with the sweet berry, stonefruit and citrus flavors of East Africa and Latin America as a lighter-bodied and mild coffee always crafted from pioneering regions and producers breaking into the specialty coffee world as we work together realizing their great potential.
The flavors of Brother Sun are naturally developed in moderate to high altitude terroir that when married with selected varieties and expert meticulous processing yield bright, sweet and clean flavors that are always presented smooth and easy to love. Brother Sun is a great "breakfast blend" that can excel as a drip coffee and really shine as cold brew showcasing our ongoing collaborations with inspiring producers in according to the season's harvests and offerings.
Honduras La Bomba
|Grown by our longtime friend David Lopez in the village of El Socorro de la Penita in Comayagua. La Bomba is one of the many plots of the Parainema variety David has planted through our relationship. The bright and intense flavors of strawberry and green apple are perfect for our Brother Sun.
Burundi Giku Hill
Saint Frank and Long Miles came together in 2014 with a shared energy for the potential of specialty coffee to transform lives in poor remote regions. Long Miles connects small farmers from different hill communities like Giku but until recently this remote community was incorporated into the larger Ninga Hill classification, an annual offering at Saint Frank. Giku Hill is a new terroir discovery and is a true standout next to neighboring Ninga and Bumba Hills as the most intensely flavored and structured cup.
Honduras Honduras Santa Barbara Natural
Grown by a few of our friends across a handful of villages on Santa Barbara Mountain who are adventurously trying their hands at the sun dried natural process! All of these farmers are also producing more traditional washed lots the area is famous for so these naturals are fun projects that result in super intense fruit flavors.
