Bundle-Description:  


In brief terms, coffee processing is the method used to remove the fruit from the bean. The way coffee is processed is essential to the overall flavor profile and is vital to a great cup of coffee. This sampler pack will allow you to discover the distinctions between the three main processing methods: Washed (Wet-Processed), Natural (Dry-Processed), Honey (Semi-Washed/Pulped Natural), and Funky process. 

Washed: The pulp of the bean is completely removed before it is dried. The taste is bright, clean, and will involve more of the flavors unique to the beans' origin.

Natural: The beans are dried with the pulp and skin still attached. Since the fruit has ample time to seep into the bean, this process will produce a very rich and fruit-forward cup. 

Honey: This process is very similar to natural processed coffee, except the skin is removed before it is dried. This hybrid process creates a very syrupy body with a distinct sweetness. It is not as fruity as a natural coffee, but more complex than a washed bean. 

Funky: The funky processing method is a new and unheard-of twist to the classic and well-known methods of coffee processing, using fermentation to give a rare taste. The process was named ‘Funky’ by Stephen Leighton and has been referred to that ever since.


Coffees Included: 


Colombia Inzá Las Estrellas Gold Label (Washed):

It has been a while since we last had a washed Colombian on the site, and even longer for a washed Gold Label. We took our time because we wanted to find one that stood out from the rest, and this Colombian bean did just that. Fruit and sugar in the raw come together to create a complex and silky brew. A heavy-bodied coffee with notes of Honeycrisp apple, cranberries, and a honeyed sweetness in the finish. We love the complex and rich taste of this bean and recommend roasting it medium to draw out the fruited and almost caramelized notes and aromas.

Brazil Patrocinio Natural (Dry Process):

This Brazilian bean offers an incredibly smooth balance between the deeper flavor notes of cocoa and the brighter flavor notes of wine. All pulled together with a hazelnut-like backend, this coffee is the classic bean every Brazilian drinker would love.  


Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Koke Honey Gold Label (Honey):

This Ethiopian coffee bean is everything you want in a perfect Yirgacheffe. It is sweet and juicy like a fresh peach but also has a nice subtle blueberry sweetness. The creamy toastiness of coconut lingers on the tongue after your last sip. We decided to roast it medium to highlight the sweetness while also maintaining the complex fruited notes. This bean is the first honey-processed Ethiopian in a while and it lives up to the billing.

Since our inception, fast free shipping has been one of our tenants as a company.  So it took a long time for me to come to a decision to eliminate the free portion of that sentence.  I know we all want free, so taking that away is putting a lot of trust in you guys to be able to understand my reasoning and trust my math.  I'm going to list a few reasons I moved away from the free shipping model all-together below.  I'd love to hear from you if you think this is a bad decision or if you appreciate me putting the shipping cost decisions in your hands.

 

Free is Never Really Free

Full disclosure, free shipping isn't really free shipping.  I am paying to ship you your coffee, so you're either paying for it buried in the price of the coffee beans or at the end at checkout.  I think the psychology of free shipping is that you don't end up at the checkout and find out that you need to spend another 30% to get your items.  That's a very real thing and I hope to have a simple pricing model to help you avoid that sticker shock.  Before I get there, let me tell you what I used to do.  It used to cost me about $9.00 to ship 5lbs of coffee (USPS just raised their prices...again).  So what I did was add $1.80 to each pound as I calculated the selling price.  I then had $5 shipping for under $35 orders to try to drive the customer (you) to buy about 5lbs of coffee and make the math work.

There have been several flaws with this model.  First off, it made the cost per lb look like we're WAY more expensive than other green coffee resellers in the market.  Second, it really stops working when someone orders less than 5lbs and more than 5lbs, because the cost to ship 5lbs-30lbs per pound is much less than $1.80/lb.  So it kind of narrowed our market.  Third, we have recently been able to negotiate even better rates with FedEx and blown up the $1.80/lb model.  We can now do a 2-day Padded Pak at an amazing rate and fit 10lbs in it.  The irony of a free shipping model is that it is less transparent.  If I'm going to be completely transparent with my cost model, then you'll recognize a good deal when you see it and we're all happier.  Transparency makes the whole sales process work better.

So we now include our pricing without shipping and add it on at the end.  To help you optimize your buying experience our shipping pricing is listed below.
