The Waverly Espresso

SKU: N/A Categories: , Tags: ,

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 Columbia 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.

Veloso Coffee

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%.

For the Velosos, investing in reforestation and conservation of the local biodiversity proves to neighboring farms that it is an important component of the collective sustainability of coffee. The lot is naturally processed: it is spread on drying patios until they reach an 11.5% moisture content, then dry-milled.

El Paraiso & Villa Esperanza cooperatives

Its sister component, Colombia Huila A comes from an area of Colombia where the Andes mountains split into three separate mountain ranges called “cordilleras”. Between the Central and Eastern Cordilleras you’ll find the El Paraiso growers' association in Tarqui and the Villa Esperanza cooperative in Guadalupe, whose members are unified by community values that support relentless innovation in quality and environmental sustainability.

We have special relationship with these cooperatives through our supply chain partner Caravela, purchasing a large portion of their annual output each year—and we have had the pleasure of visiting some co-op member farms in person.
