Honey processed coffees are always fun on the espresso machine. It’s the perfect gateway to adding fruit to your menu without overdoing it.

Colombia

COLOMBIA ORGANIC NARINO ECOTERRA ROSA WOMENS PROJECT GRAINPRO

This coffee has an inspiring story, produced by 40 female producers focused on quality, and would be an excellent addition to your single-origin espresso menu.

Mexico

MEXICO CHIAPAS BELLA VISTA MAYAN HARVEST GRAINPRO

The coffees coming from the 38 coffee producers associated with Rosalba Cifuentes have been a recent hit here at Royal. We just started working with Rosalba a few years ago but her impact can be felt throughout the industry. Rosalba ensures traceability for her community coffee by personally exporting the coffee directly to the Bay Area. We’ve featured her coffees on our espresso menu at The Crown and think they would be a great addition to your blend or single origin espresso. 

Cupping Notes: We taste honey, chocolate, and caramel.

Peru

PERU FTO CAFE DE MUJER APROCCURMA

This dual certified female produced lot is a glimmer of hope coming out of Peru during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have seen our imports of coffees from Peru dwindle during the global crisis and are thrilled to offer this coffee. This would make a great option for the base of an espresso blend with an inspiring story. 

Cupping Notes: We taste melon, cola, and brown sugar.

Uganda

This lot offers a price competitive non-traditional option to your espresso blend. We love its body and chocolate notes.

Like it’s sibling lot above, this is another great value-driven coffee for your menu, but Organic certified. This coffee delivers lots of sweetness at a great price.

UGANDA ORGANIC RFA SIPI FALLS FULLY WASHED GRAINPRO

Uganda is not typically a terroir you’ll find on a single origin espresso menu. This coffee hopes to change that. It can stand up on its own on bar or that you can place in your blends. It shows the range of Uganda’s profile, something we would love to see more roasters embrace.
