original gangsta.

OG is an easy drinking, versatile espresso blend that pairs perfectly with milk (especially oat if that’s your jam) & tastes just like drinking a fruit ‘n’ nut choccy bar!

Our Original Gangsta espresso blend is a trailblazer. Authentically unique with a touch of old school charm. This delicious blend has a super clean acidity, lingering sweetness and a creamy mouthfeel with notes of chocolate, raisin & almond.

This coffee is made up of three delicious single origins from Honduras, Colombia & Brazil. Click the image above to read more about how & where we’ve sourced the origins for this blend.

finca el puente.

This delicious washed Pacamara from Finca El Puente in Honduras is giving rich caramel & bright berry acidity with a lingering black tea finish.

Since 2018, we’ve been buying coffee directly from Honduras coffee legends, Marysabel Caballero and Moises Herrera of Finca El Puente. This gorgeous Pacamara is just another example of how their meticulous farming practices continue to result in outstanding coffees.

On the same day the coffee cherries are picked, they’re de-pulped in the afternoon & left in tanks for fermentation. Once the fermentation process is complete, the coffee is washed and allowed to gently dry in various controlled conditions.
