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 Nicaragua 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.

Finca Los Placeres

Finca Los Placeres, comes to us from the Mierisch family in Matagalpa, Nicaragua. As a Rainforest Alliance Certified farm, Fincas Los Placeres aims to decrease water pollution, soil erosion, waste, water usage, and threats to environmental and human health. Upon harvest, this coffee is floated for density, depulped, then fermented in concrete tanks for 12-24 hours depending on the weather.

After fermentation, the coffee is washed, then delivered to Beneficio Don Esteban, the dry mill owned by the Mierisch family, to be dried on soft-bedded, tarp-covered patios, where gentle treatment ensures the protective outer layer of parchment stays intact. After drying, the coffee is dehulled on-site.
