Beginning February 18, we will be serving the award winning Guatemala El Injerto in our cafes. This fantastic coffee, from the Pandora Region, is a four time 1st Place winner at Cup Of Excellence. This is the first picking of this region. The coffee has to be tasted to be believed but it has been revered for its sweet and perfumed aromas as well as its floral and caramel flavor notes. Expect sweet pineapple and lime acidity, with hints of cardamom and clean sweet finish.
This Rainforest Alliance certified coffee is available only in our cafes for a limited time (likely only a few days) while our supply lasts. Learn more about Finca El Injerto here and don’t miss your chance to have a cup at our 25 Jay St. and 200 Flushing Ave. cafes, as well as our outpost in West Elm at 50 Washington St.
