Panther Coffee

Miami, Florida

Joel Pollock’s work at Miami’s Panther Coffee has come full circle with this month’s pick from Ecuador. Joel regularly travels throughout South America, where he sources coffees from fresh local harvests. His customers – primarily from coffee-growing countries throughout the Americas – are proud to experience his quality take on their regional speciality. One particular customer, Steve Santana, inspired Joel to explore coffee from his native Ecuador. Pollock listened, and returned with this brew, which Santana loves and orders regularly. We think you’ll love it, too, with its clean and delicate profile, marked by a juicy orange acidity and flavors of pears and barley malt.

Detour Coffee Roasters

Dundas, Ontario

We like a little optimism in our morning coffee and this cup teams with it. These beans, hailing from Bufundu, Rwanda, are the product of 7,000 smallholder farmers working together under the leadership of one inspirational and enterprising woman. In 2003, Epiphanie Mukashyaka turned her family’s modest coffee farm into Buf Café and redefined the community around her. Her farmers hand-pick and hand-sort the coffee to ensure quality, and the flavors flourish under the thoughtful roasting of Ontario’s Detour Coffee. Aromas of brown sugar and coconut lead into a round, creamy cup with lime and apricot acidity, candy-like strawberry sweetness, and clean floral notes throughout.

Novo Coffee

Denver, Colorado

Novo Coffee, of Denver, Colorado, tends to forge full-speed ahead when it comes to roasting innovation. And when we say full-speed, we mean it – their roasting machines are powered by actual Ferrari motors! About to celebrate their 10th anniversary, we’re happy to let this family business do the driving. They know what it takes to bring out the best in one of Kenya’s most sought after varieties – the SL-28 – and it shows. They took extra care to roast these beans just right, not too light or dark, and the result is a true joy-ride: a sweet and syrupy cup highlighted by passionfruit and grapefruit acidity finishing with lingering flavors of coconut.
