It is no secret that we don’t roast the character out of our coffees.
This blend is named (and originally designed for Colonel Grumpy) Chapin or Chapino; which is a friendly term for a person from Guatemala, a little like someone from the UK might be called a Brit.
Chapin blend was originally designed as a single origin, all Guatemalan espresso. We just buy the very best single farms from Guatemala every year as we LOVE the complexity, sweetness and brightness we get with the altitude.
I have been fortunate to travelled through Guatemala as has Nathan . . In these years Guatemala has become one of our most important coffee origins for quality and consistency.
This year Chapin is going to a new level as we have bought some extraordinary coffees we are mighty excited about. As the weeks unfold, the blend will become a little more interesting and as good as it ever has or could.
