About this Coffee

Mario Hervas left rose farming for coffee, planting heirloom Typica on his high-elevation farm El Meridiano. The cultivar, once found across the coffee-producing world, is now grown by just a handful of ambitious farmers. Though finicky to grow, Typica has the potential to produce a full-bodied coffee with sublime perfume. Mario’s keen eye for details and his farm’s location in the upper reaches of the Andes make for ideal conditions. Indeed, we swear that his beautifully sweet coffee has the aromatics of a just-picked rose.
