are participants in a number of international competitions as jurors,
such as the Cup of Excellence, now held in about eight countries a
year. These competitions seek to rank the best coffee in a particular
country in a given year. The coffees are later auctioned and the best
fetch a considerable price due to their excellence and scarceness. Some
Serious Select coffees derive from other single country competitions,
some from private auctions - like the world renowned Hacienda Esmeralda
from Panama - and still others are the product of experimentation by
growers pushing the envelope.
sought after and often more expensive coffees are what Serious Select
is all about. We will roast and ship Serious Select coffees on
Tuesdays, one or more coffees per week, so you may enjoy these coffees
at their absolute peak of flavor.

Colombia Granja La Esperanza Geisha 'Buenos Aires'
A colleague who travels to Colombia a lot and who has an eye for quality visited the Granja Esperanza farm in Colombia a few months. He came away looking to his like minded friends here to share a larger shipment. We were offered and cupped our way through numerous small lot samples from this farm where experimentation and attention to detail is taken to new levels. We came away extremely impressed by three coffees which are now in our warehouse. Two are washed coffees, one a 'honey' which dries with some sweet mucilage attached to the husk. The scarcest of the three was this lovely washed Geisha and so we begin our introduction to you of this farm with this elegant, floral selection.
