Behind the Beans
We named this coffee after two distinctive things about Colombia: The Andes, a mountain range in Colombia, and the emeralds that are known to be found in this region.
These beans come from the Nariño department, which was named after a Colombian patriot and champion of human rights in Latin America. This region is relatively far from the rest of the country and has a diverse geography and varied climate according to altitude.
Nearly 90% of coffee from this region is harvested from April to August and the rest comes from the mitaca or fly crop harvested between December and February. Sourced from small family farms, each producer picks and processes their coffee in their home-based wet mill and then dry on elevated tables, often inside solar dryers.

What do I need to know about shipping chocolate?
Shipping chocolate is a delicate adventure - especially in summer.
Our chocolate is especially vulnerable to the effects of temperature fluctuation because we avoid the use of all stabilizers, preservatives, and fillers.
Our summer shipping protocol is currently in place:
- We only ship chocolate on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Orders placed between Thursday and Sunday will ship the following Monday.
- We occasionally make the tough call to postpone shipping on hot days. We will always update you accordingly.
- We recommend all chocolate orders are sent by USPS Priority Mail Express.
- We cannot offer refunds on chocolate shipped during the summer using USPS Ground or USPS Priority Shipping.
- While we can only offer refunds to customers who have selected USPS Priority Mail Express shipping for their chocolate, please contact us if you are unhappy in any way with your order and we’ll do what we can to make it right.

Delicious blend. Enjoyed black
I really love maps coffee. I normally go father dark blends, but also enjoy Columbia coffee. I drink my coffee black and I’m picky. This is a great blend and I will be ordering more.
This is one of my favorites, nice and nutty!
The coffee has been superb! I wouldn't be able to survive without the work these amazing people do! Not only am I in love with this roast, the customer service has been amazing! These folks have gone above and beyond to show me that they care! Much love!
One of my favorite places to go. The owner makes the most amazing coffee and chocolate! I highly recommend Maps to anyone who is a lover of coffee and/or chocolate.
Finally found coffee worth driving across town for!!!.....Quite possibly one of the best cold brews I've ever had..... Like ever
Great fresh roasted coffee and amazing hand-made chocolate! Going back for more. 😋
Expert coffee roasting with a personal touch. If you have not been there drop what you’re doing immediately and go get some of these delicious beans.
Absolutely amazing coffee and chocolate. I would highly recommend. We have friends come from Alabama and Nepal for the coffee.
Vince always has recently roasted coffee, and it DOES make a difference. AND he has the best-tasting DECAF anywhere, the last bag I had was better than most other whole bean coffees.
I’ve tried just about every coffee in KC, and Maps is the best.
Best coffee I've had in YEARS. Everyone was very nice and knowledgeable. The chocolate was also amazing. I know where I'll be buying my coffee from, from now on.
You’ll find the most welcoming environment and delicious tasting COFFEE & CHOCOLATE in the greater KC Area!
I live in Tennessee and whenever I travel to KC, I stop in and pick up a few bags, hang out and have a cup and do some emails. Get the “Milk” roast, it’s the best coffee I’ve ever had.
Such a great place! The owner is so friendly and full of so much knowledge, and his cold brew is the absolute best. His chocolate is delicious too, with unique flavors!
Been to most of the coffee shops/roasters in KC. This one is by far the best...Found my perfect coffee. Maps is my new spot.
