Niguse Nara:
Elderberry • Lilac • Citra Hops

A second great offering from the man who brought you the Nara - Alpha we are proud to offer you his staple coffee and namesake Nugusi Nara. Nugusi's traditional Natural brings a very strong floral bouquet but still retains its berry like qualities.

Miguel Guzman Pacas Edt.:
Maraschino Cherry • Star Anise • Honeycomb

Miguel is a second-generation farmer from the town of El Cedral in Santa Barbara Honduras where he inherited his first plot of land from his father over 30 years ago. Starting off small, Miguel sold his first crop through commercial supply chains until he was introduced to specialty coffee by The San Vicente Mill, our partners in Honduras. The premiums he received once he started focusing more on quality provided the opportunity for him and his wife Elena Guevara Garcia to put their sons through university.

We purchased the entirety of Mr Guzman’s crop and are providing you with two cultivars back-to-back. First being his pacas, and second being his parainema.

Pacas is a direct descendant of the classic bourbon cultivar and is known for its classic soft and sweet profile leaning towards floral and warm spice.

La Senda Red Honey
Red Grape • Toffee • Ginger Beer

This is not your everyday honey! Maria Eugenia Escobar, the matriarch of Finca La Senda took the traditional honey process and ran with it.

After harvesting, the cherries are hand sorted and rested overnight. The cherries are then fermented in an oxygen free chamber before they are pulped, and finally shade dried. The addition of the pre-pulping ferment creates a complex flavor profile and the standard honey process builds the sweetness and body. Perfect for espresso but versatile enough to be brewed as filter.

La Senda Washed
Floral • Toffee • Red Apple

Finca La Senda is our oldest direct relationship in Central America dating back to 2017—representing a truly special timeline.

After its inception in the 1940s, the Pérez family first processed their own cherry in 2017. Arnoldo Pérez Melendez continues to work the land as he has done for over 40 years focusing on cultivating traditional varieties. Maria Eugenia Escobar is responsible for the processing—a very rare thing in Guatemala, where it is mostly done by men. At retirement age she learned the basics and continues to experiment and build on the lessons from the previous harvest. She compares processing coffee to cooking, and the wet mill to her kitchen—the cherry as the main ingredient, and the processing skills as the technique.
El Purutal:
Caramel • Citrus • Chocolate

El Purutal was created to honor the coffee profile of the central and south Huila region. Around its mountains, outstanding coffees are grown, which are carefully selected through a rigorous sensory analysis to guarantee the profile consistency and quality.

The Huilan landscape is dominated by volcanos and mountains, providing a rich terroir of high altitude and fertile soils and offering a wide range of ecosystems where coffee can be grown. There are producing farms ranging from 1500 m.a.s.l. up to 2.300 m.a.s.l., conferring great attributes to the cup profile such as bright acidity and characteristic sweet notes.

Lucem:
Chocolate • Almond • Brown Sugar

Our foundation at Merit is built on the pursuit of perfection across three different areas: roasting, sourcing and brewing. I see all of our work as a study. An exploration into the next great thing, the next great micro-lot, the next great growing region, the next great tasting experience. Every coffee we work with brings us closer to that goal, and every day we are learning.

Decaf:
Strawberry • Vanilla Bean • Clove

Even with our decaf offering, we take our passion for transparency and flavor seriously. We find that the ethyl acetate decaf process produces coffees with a warm, cozy feel and a distinct berry note. 
 
Roasters Blend / Iced Coffee:
Our rotating seasonal selection for iced coffee. Coffees may change, but you'll always get the same full-bodied profile. 

Andino Leal:
One of our most versatile coffees, this all-around star is at once chocolatey, fruity, and grounded.
