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 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.
OriginCerrado, Minas Gerais, Brazil | Huila, Colombia
ProducerVeloso Coffee | Fincas Mierisch
TypeRed Catuaí 144, Caturra, Colombia, Catuai
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 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.
