A triptych is a piece of art that contains three distinct and separate panels, that when joined help tell a cohesive story. This is a collaborative project between ourselves, Discovery Coffee in Victoria and Nemesis Coffee in Vancouver.
Each quarter, we will release one coffee from the catalogue of one of the participating roasters, on a rotating basis, choosing a producer that we are passionate about supporting, or who are doing some really amazing things.
Inside each box you will get 100g of the same coffee, roasted by three different roasters (for a total of 300g).
This is an opportunity to not only try a coffee from a roaster you may not have experienced before, but to be able to taste them side by side and experience how different roasting philosophies, equipment and approaches can make a coffee taste quite different.
The main purpose of this project is to support the producer, however, and we will be sending the proceeds from the sale of these boxes directly to them to use as they see fit, either to improve the infrastructure of the farm, provide financial stability, support their families or workers, or to purchase new equipment.
Release No 1 is from us, and is the Hugo Melo single origin from Colombia.
We have been supporting Hugo for a couple years now, and we absolutely love what he does (he is in the red shirt in the photos). For a small farm, he produces some amazing coffee, though experimentation and extremely diligent processing. This coffee underwent a five stage fermentation process, by hand, that brought out way more fruit sweetness than you usually see from Colombia, unless you do a full African style natural process fermentation.
$10.00 from the sale of each box will be transferred direct to Hugo.
Discovery, Nemesis and ourselves are excited to share this coffee with you.
Note on Shipping: We have made our Lettermail shipping option available for this product, for orders within Canada. This will ship in an envelope, and will not come in the box designed for this release, but it is a cheaper option at $5 for anywhere in Canada. Please note that there is no tracking with this option.
