We are excited to represent Daterra's Masterpiece series for the second year! From the same producers as Sweet Blue comes Catira. This coffee, just like music, is a composition: Daterra harvested three varietals Catucai, Acaua and Catigua, processed them individually then blended them for a mind-blowing and complex cup. The semi-carbonic maceration is a fermentation technique inspired by the winemaking style of Beaujolais. The ripe cherries are placed inside and hermetical tank. The CO2 released in the fermentation expels all the oxygen from the tank, creating an anaerobic environment. The maceration is result of the bottom cherries crushing under the weight of the top cherries providing an intense saturation in the flavor notes.
Catira is folklorical dance, typical of southeast region. Dancers stomp feet and clap simultaneously, as a way to make the beats complement the guitar melodies. As many other Brazilian rhythms, Catira has hybrid origin with indigenous, African and European influences.
Pour Over: 25g coffee | 390g filtered water | 3:45 Espresso: 19g coffee | 51g liquid espresso | 25-30 sec

Juniper and red wine aromatics fill the room preparing you for a giant, fruit-forward cup. Blackberry, grape jam and pomegranate layer in the cup with a pleasant crème fraîche finish.
Floral and vibrant aromatics lead into a mouthfeel experience unlike anything we've had before. A cooling effect reminiscent of fresh mint while maintaining those bright currant-like fruit profile. Unique, dynamic, grab it while it's hot!
Malawi Mzuzu was sourced through the collaboration of our local Spokane community. Sustainable Harvest sourced 10 coffees for us to cup from, the F1RST AVENUE Mug Club whittled those 10 down to 1 coffee. Once it arrived at Roast House, we roasted and cupped again with the Mug Club to find everyone’s favorite roast style. Finally landing on this beautiful coffee we are excited to share.
PRE-ORDER ONLY. We’ll be roasting our limited Malawi Mzuzu every Friday at F1RST AVENUE. After roasting on Friday, we’ll ship orders Monday morning. Picking up a few other roasts? We’ll ship those on Monday with the Malawi Mzuzu. Cheers, friends.
Bright rainier cherry and a fruit salad complexity lead into nectarine, persimmon among a myriad of ripe fruits that fill the cup. The finish has a saturated sweetness similar to maple syrup providing structure and a lingering finish.
Roast House and Rutas del Inca have been working together since 2014 because of Sustainable Harvest's continued work in Peru. Each year quality has improved as their trees mature and increase in sweetness, clarity and complexity. Piloted for the first time in 2018 in collaboration with Sustainable Harvest, Rutas del Inca’s quality control team segmented out coffees from the best performing producers in the cooperative, and blended them to create smaller, exceptional lots. This particular lot was named after the famous Inca empire couriers: El Chasqui produced by 6 producers.
