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 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.

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 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 .

El Guayacán coffee comes from a collective of around 300 coffee growers in the area, with average farm sizes of about 2-3 hectares each. Our supply chain partners in Peru, Caravela Coffee, work closely year-round with El Guayacán growers to ensure the quality of the coffee, as well as quality of life of the people cultivating it.
