The Waverly Espresso
fig, dark chocolate, orange
Lovingly named for our first cafe in New York City, The Waverly is our signature espresso. Seasonally driven, but designed to achieve a balance of body and sweetness with lively fruit notes year-round, this espresso is perfect as a straight shot or in milk. We have carefully sourced two components for this particular blend: a coffee from Brazil, which lends a stable, sturdy body and rich sweetness, and a coffee from Peru that adds clean, well-integrated acidity to the cup.
We craft this blend to ensure an expansive flavor profile based on two components that bring out the best in each other, season to season, drink to drink.
OriginCerrado, Minas Gerais, Brazil | San Ignacio, Cajamarca, Peru
ProducerVeloso Coffee | El Guayacán smallholder farmers
TypeRed Catuaí 144, Caturra, Typica, and Bourbon
ProcessNatural & Washed
The Veloso family has been producing specialty coffees in the Cerrado Mineiro region in the countryside of coffee-rich Minas Gerais, Brazil, for decades. This coffee is grown on the family's Paraiso and Santa Cecilia farms on wide plots surrounded by protected wildlife regions. The Velosos maintain 38% of their land as natural forest—well above the Brazilian agricultural regulation of 20%.
El Guayacán smallholder farmers
Its counterpart comes from the San Ignacio province in Cajamarca, Peru, located in the northern part of the country close to the border with Ecuador. Known for being the capital region of Peruvian coffee, the area is full of natural forests and the coffee itself draws its name, El Guayacán, from the popular and majestic yellow trees that can be spotted throughout the coffee-growing landscapes, often providing shade for coffee plants, across northern Cajamarca .
