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.
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.
