Now that the Winter of our discontent is over, we can finally dream about the possibilities of Spring. Bluer skies, longer days, taking a ride, or maybe a run— say, with 50,000 friends? For many of us, the Bloomsday Run is a kind of anchor for the year — a motivation to train, a marker of the sweet turn from Spring towards Summer, a chance to tour Spokane, WA at a leisurely (or gut-busting) pace. Bloomsday celebrates the spirit of Spokane, and we are happy to celebrate and support Bloomsday with their very own custom blend.
We worked closely with the Bloomsday crew to formulate the perfect companion coffee — one with familiar, comforting, satisfying flavors. The chocolatey notes of our best Central and South American beans produce a sessionable cup profile. This coffee is for the everyday runner, the first time walker, and the elite athlete who will wow us all with their speed and grace. It’s for the months before: early mornings, before work, spent getting that training run in. Or a little pick-me-up, mid-afternoon, because, well, you just want it.

PRE-ORDER ONLY. We’ll be roasting every Friday on our lab roaster to ship out Monday morning. Picking up a few other roasts? We’ll send those on Monday with your Masterpiece Catira. Cheers, friends.
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.
