Our coffee...

The Espresso

Detour – Punch Buggy – Brazil Mogiana + Guatemala Huehuetenango, Natural + Washed

Friendly and Familiar. This classic has a bit of something for everyone. Nutty and Fruity with notes of chocolate the Punch Buggy is robust and well rounded – Hard to go wrong with this one!

Rooftop – Haro Lebetu – Ethiopia, Natural

This single origin natural process brings sweetness and complexity. Think juicy mangos and raspberries with floral notes. Another fabulous roast from our friends at Rooftop to challenge your taste buds.

And the Batch Brew

Modus – Dom – Guatemala, Abel Oritz, Washed

This is our take on an everyday drip coffee. It’s nutty chocolatey. Great black and holds its own with milk and sugar.
