Rooftop Coffee Roasters Guatemala, Reyes Torres
$19.99
Tasting Notes: Honey Blackberry Milk Chocolate Processing: Washed Variety: Pache San Ramon Altitude: 1600m Background Info: Located in a lesser known region of Guatemala, the producers of Mataquescuintla have had little access to specialty markets. As a result, the prices they received were based on the terrible low commodity price of coffee, or “C-price”, often lower than costs of production. On top of this, producers in the region have been further strained by violent social conflict surrounding the proposed expansion of the Escobal mine, owned by Vancouver-based Pan American Silver. The indigenous Xinca Parliament has repeatedly voiced opposition, plebiscites have shown 98% of locals in the surrounding towns are opposed, and peaceful protests were organized demanding consultation and transparency. In response, paramilitary security forces were deployed by the mining company, injuring and killing land defenders. To this day, producers face death threats and are systematically criminalized. Having read about the conflict, Drew Johnson of Bows & Arrows Coffee in Victoria, BC travelled to the community, where he met Alex Reynoso. Alex is the unofficial leader of the coffee producers in the area, and an organizer in the local resistance. Drew then called on roasters back home to help, and a group of mostly BC-based coffee companies formed a makeshift buying group in 2019 with the goal of paying higher prices and forming longevity and stability with our commitments. The group collectively purchased over 40 thousand kilos of coffee that first year. This is the second harvest that the group has been together, and we’re so thankful to be able to buy their coffees for a second year especially amidst the strains of the pandemic. This is not the type of glamorous or romanticized discourse we’re used to in coffee, but it’s important to add context to the lived realities of producers. We roasted Reyes’ coffee to highlight the crisp berry acidity and honey sweetness.
Rooftop Coffee Roasters Peru, Valle Inca
$19.99
Tasting Notes: Raspberry White Chocolate Dates Processing: Washed Variety: Bourbon & Typica Altitude: 1700m-1900m Background Info: While neighbouring Brazil and Colombia got all the attention as the “coffee hubs” of South America, Peru quietly developed a network of quality-driven producers. This lot was grown by producers Martha Liberata Escalate and Ronal Bohorques Ramos, and is a perfect example of the new era of Peruvian coffee. We roasted this to highlight the crisp raspberry sweetness, while balancing it with the creamy white chocolate undertones, with the goal of creating a sweet, well-rounded cup. Prudencio Vargas Saenz is the founder of Valle Inca and a leader in his hometown of Calca. In the community, Prudencio is known for trustworthiness and a drive to reinvest in the community by paying equitable prices and offering assistance to improve quality. He also brings valuable financial knowledge from his former experience as an agricultural loan officer. We purchased this coffee from Red Fox Coffee Merchants, who have been working with Valle Inca since 2014. Also driven to invest in quality and promote transparency, Red Fox graciously shares their supply chain information. They paid $2.90 USD per quintal (roughly 100kg) for this coffee. For reference, the next highest-paying client pays $1.20 per quintal. (Note these are FOB prices – the price paid in Peru to Valle Inca). Compared to the next highest buyer, this translates to a 60-90% higher price paid to farmers (depending on various factors). Naturally, this group has grown rapidly as farmers are empowered to improve quality and pursue specialty buyers like Red Fox (and us). It now comprises 101 producers, but Valle Inca is further motivated by the endless mountains where producers are growing coffee but have yet to be brought into the fold. We can’t wait to see what this group does next!

Rooftop Coffee Roasters Mexico, Ernesto Perez -340g
$21.99
Tasting Notes: Apple Pie Fig Hazelnut Farm: Finca Fatima Municipality: Coatepec, Veracruz Processing: Washed Variety: Typica, Marsellesa, Garnica Altitude: 1250m Description: One of the most exciting parts of what we do with our sourcing is exploring the diversity of flavour profiles and characteristics within just one coffee producing country. This year we cupped a whole host of samples from Oaxaca, Chiapas and Veracruz, and it honestly felt like tasting entirely different origins. Veracruz struck us as one of the more unique regions, challenging our preconceived notions of Mexican coffees. Growing cherries at some of the highest latitudes of any coffee producing region on earth, the cooler, wetter climates in Veracruz yield slower ripening times akin to those found at high altitudes. Ernesto Perez is a young producer who recently began controlling the family farm and processing mill, and is set on shifting his community into producing high quality specialty coffee and refining processing in order to make more money for their work. He recently expanded his own wet mill to APG Coffee, a micro wet mill, and now other producers in the community of Coatepec can process their coffees there. APG also offers agronomic consulting to producers to build soil health and increase quality, while also maximizing profitability. With a crisp apple acidity, warm baking spice undertones and a rich honeyed sweetness, Ernesto’s coffee reminds us of classic apple pie. An earthy fig-like note comes through as espresso. Overall this is an ideal coffee for fall - rich, sweet, and comforting.
Rooftop Coffee Roasters Ethiopia, Yirgacheffe Z, 340g
$23.75
Washing Station: Tamrat Alemayehu mill Region: Kochere, Yirgacheffe Processing: Washed Variety: Heirloom Altitude: 1800m-2100m Tasting Notes: Peach, Iced Tea, Delicate Florals Description: These cherries were grown in the famous Yirgacheffe region, from smallholder farmers surrounding the town of Kochere. Tamrat Alemayehu, born and raised in Yirgacheffe, owns the station which bears his name. We roasted this coffee to maintain and highlight the juicy peach acidity and delicate floral aromas. A shorter, faster roasting time preserves these floral aromatics, while also keeping the acidity bright and vibrant. A honey sweetness ties together the whole cup, creating a cup that reminds us of a peach iced tea. Perfect for iced patio coffees on a hot summer day.
Anchored Coffee Ethiopia, Derikocha Filter
$24.99

Rooftop Coffee Roasters Ethiopia Danche Chalbesa 340g
$24.99
Tasting Notes: Mango Blueberry Lychee Processing: Natural. Certified Organic. Varieties: Wolisho & Kurume Altitude: 2000-2300m Description: The Danche Station is brand new, and 2020 marks just the second year of coffees being processed here. Negusse Weldyes, coffee exporter and owner of the station, pays the top prices in the region in order to attract the best farmers and receive the most uniform ripeness. As both the exporter and miller, Negusse has access to a unique line of communication, which allows him to relay feedback from buyers right back to his farming partners, further driving quality. Negusse also plans to invest in a health clinic in the area to improve access to healthcare for farmers and their families. We sourced this coffee from Jeff at Apex Coffee, who routinely brings in our favourite lots from Ethiopia. Negusse’s commitment to meticulous processing and paying top dollar for the best cherries contributes to the clean and complex flavour profile. This allowed us to roast lighter than we would most naturals, highlighting the bouquet of tropical fruit and lush body. This lot is made up of Kurume and Wolisho, two landrace varieties that have been passed down throughout centuries in the Yirgacheffe region of the Gedeo Zone, known for their floral and citric notes in the cup. However, as a naturally processed coffee (in which the whole cherries are dried over 18 days) the flavour profile deepens into lush florals, tropical notes of mango and kiwi and the characteristic blueberry juiciness of natural Ethiopian coffees.
