Little Brother Espresso
An uncommon balance between bright and sweet stone fruits with lower toned flavors of rich milk chocolate, caramel, and honey
Little Brother always features relationship coffees that stand on their own as single origin offerings from small scale producers we know, so the overall quality, balance and consistency is rarely matched in an espresso blend. Even with such consistent coffees, we also roast each component separately to align their development and solubility for the most even extraction possible. Always a breeze to dial in as espresso and easy to brew using your favorite filter method.
Little Brother is our reference to the company of Saint Francis as well as an expression of our vision in sourcing and sharing coffees. Francis affectionately called his group of friends as the “little brothers” never taking themselves too seriously while at the same time serving one another and the world with a familial connection. Little Brother Espresso is our attempt to give you something unassuming and humble yet inherently special and significant, sweet and approachable yet still compelling. We always comprise Little Brother with coffees from small family farmers, the true source of the coffee stream flowing throughout the world.
Honduras El Cielito
|The village of El Cielito and its immediate neighbor Ocotillo boast a rich history and quality on the mountain of Santa Barbara. These coffees are one ridge over from the equally esteemed village of El Cedral. The iconic Pacas variety leads this coffee with Catuai, while Bourbon and Catimor play supporting roles.
Honduras Los Hermanos
Anael has been a faithful partner of ours for a nearly a decade managing his own coffee as well as his sister, Reyna, and his brother, Edwin. We've historically served this coffee as "Los Hermanos" as a combined sibling presentation. Anael’s quiet and humble perseverance is an honor to behold, as is his literal horse whispering and harmonious relationship with all the animals around his farm.
