Behind the Beans

We named this coffee after two distinctive things about Colombia: The Andes is 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.

Grind Types Explained
Why Does Grind Type Matter?

Grind size affects the extraction rate of the coffee and therefore affects the flavor of the final brew. Because of the water flow rate and pressure variations between brew methods, different grind sizes suit different brew methods better. You'll want to pick the right one for optimum flavor.

What do I need to know about shipping chocolate?
Shipping chocolate is a delicate adventure – especially in the summer.

Our chocolate is especially vulnerable to the effects of temperature fluctuation because we avoid the use of all stabilizers, preservatives, and fillers.

In order to help your chocolates arrive in the way they leave our workshop, we have placed the following systems in place:

  1. We only ship chocolate orders Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays to avoid packages spending the weekend outside of a temperature-controlled environment. Any orders placed Thursday and later will ship the following Monday.
  2. We recommend all chocolate orders are ordered for pick-up or sent by USPS Priority Mail Express.
  3. We cannot offer refunds on chocolate shipped during the summer using USPS Ground or USPS Priority Shipping.
  4. In summer, we ship our chocolates with insulation and icepacks. This utilitarian packing solution helps protect your chocolate in transit.
  5. We occasionally make the tough call to postpone shipping on hot days, and we always update you accordingly.
  6. 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.
  7. See our FAQ page for more details on chocolate and temperature!
