Welcome to our site and the world of organic Alaskan fresh-roasted coffee. We just received some exciting new coffees, so check them out under Our Coffees. They make great Christmas gifts, by the way! The mist and winds off the Matanuska River, just below our home and roastery, lend a sweetness and flavor to our beans that we feel is unmatched. We're biased, of course, but check our roasts out for yourself! Our next delivery will be the 10th of December both in Palmer (Non Essentials) and Anchorage (Fromagio's). Our coffee is also available at the Turkey Red Restaurant in Palmer. Thanks so much for your support.
The 150 members (88 women and 66 men) are part of the Asociación de Caficultores Indígenas de San Pedro (ASISP) in South Tolima, part of the Paez and Nasa tribes originally brought from southern Cauca by the Colombian Army at the beginning of the 20th century to work in gold mines. After independence, they became coffee farmers, managing the plantations organically, with meticulous care, some micro-lots scoring over 87 and higher in SCAA cuppings.
Profile: Crisp juicy peach, with lively acidity in the lighter roast becoming chocolate, walnut in the darker roast; full body and smooth.
