Originating in the Caldas department, Colombia, this micro-lot was sourced from small producers in rural villages located in the Andes mountain range. The coffee is from around 2000 meters above sea level. This region is an ideal micro-climate located between two rivers and surrounded by three snow-covered volcanoes. The community wet mill is overseen by the “Alchemist” Juan Felipe Aristizábal. The natural process starts with 30 days of sun-drying on raised beds. Then, only 100% ripe cherries are selected from this lot through a floating process before they are hand-sorted. The community wet mill guarantees a fixed price for the coffee cherries creating a uniquely sustainable model in the region.
Choose your roast!
The light roast Juan Felipe has notes of tropical fruits and chocolate with a medium body.
Our medium roast is our favorite all coffee for any brew method.
The dark roast of this origin is full bodied and rich with strong notes of chocolate.
Pick your grind
If you have a coffee grinder at home we suggest you choose the whole bean option. To read more about whole bean or pre-ground coffee click here.
Our Northside Coffee pour over grind is best for anyone who enjoys manual brew methods. We choose a more fine grind to ensure the best extraction using any pour-over method.
If you have an automated drip machine, choose the drip grind option. We set this grind to produce a high-quality cup of coffee on all automatic coffee brewers.
The cold-brew grind option is our most coarse grind. Since the cold brew extraction method takes a longer time, the large grind allows for more surface area and balanced extraction.
Our Northside Coffee espresso grind is dialed in for our machine at our cafe downtown. It might not be as compatible with every espresso machine so we recommend for most espresso drinkers to grind it themselves. We know that may not be an option for everyone so we will provide a fine grind for your convenience.
We hope you enjoy your coffee and appreciate your feedback.
