Expect a massive amount of chocolate and caramelized sugars brightened with a juicy acidity reminiscent of perfectly ripe pears. The finish is filled with butter toffee and juicy stone fruits ranging from peach to apricot. Perfectly sessionable!

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.

Ripe tropical fruits blended with sweet melon saturate the aromatics and flavor profile of this cup. We taste papaya, melon, and mango wrapped in a rounded cup finishing with a lingering orange creamsicle sweetness.
Direct from the sourcing team who made this coffee possible, Red Fox Coffee Merchants , here is the story behind this legendary coffee: “2019 is an exciting year for Nano Challa. Historically one of the most coveted coffees in all of Western Ethiopia. In 2009 when Aleco first traveled to meet the people behind the Nano Challa cooperatives, their coffees were owing into the marketplace undifferentiated and undervalued. Once USAID’s Technoserve project, which focused on improving African coffee farmers’ lives by helping them get better prices for their coffee, established the Nano Challa washing station, Aleco saw the unique character of their coffee and invested in developing relationships with its producers, which have grown stronger to this day."
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.
Toasted marshmallow starts the cup on a nostalgic note. Fresh cream, yellow plum and cocoa create a structured cup from start to finish.
Roast House and Sustainable Harvest have partnered to offer a core offering highlighting women producers around the world. Union y Fe’s has a 32 women who produce a lot called Sumac Warmi, which means “Beautiful Women.” This program provides the opportunity to recognize and reward the incredible care they give their plants and their commitment to quality.
