The Coffees We currently have a different coffee for each compostable capsule type.

Las Laderas

Las Laderas — a two-time Cup of Excellence winning farm in El Salvador — is surrounded by thick natural forest near an active volcano. A recent ash eruption lead to improved the farm's soil acidity, resulting in this outstanding microlot.

This capsule is rich and sweet, with notes of soft golden raisin and fresh date turning into a pleasing almond finish.


Rugali of the famed Nyamasheke region is one of only two washing stations with permission to produce naturally processed coffees in Rwanda. The Rugali station has harnessed its near-perfect elevation, strict hand-sorting techniques and vast drying beds to deliver this truly world-class natural Red Bourbon.

This is a winey and moreish capsule, with stewed rhubarb and ginger to begin, moving towards a satisfying cocoa finish.
