Mountain Biking Meets Coffee

GUATEMALA Cubulo

Country: Guatemala. Region: Cubulo. Farm: Las Anonas, Las naranjas, La esperanza, Grano de Oro, Finca las Piedras and other small farms. Varietals: Catuai, Pache-San Ramon, Sarchimor, Bourbon, Caturra. Notes: Dark Chocolate, Citrus Fruit, Herb-like. Body: Medium. Acidity: Bright. Elevation: 1600-1800m. Processing: Washed.

Finca Las Naranjas is owned by Don Ruben Ajualip Gonzalez. He has been one of the most important collaborators in the project. Don Ruben inherited his farm from his father some years ago, but it was in 2005 when the coffee crop started to improve. The farm is located in Caserio Chuachacalte and has an area of 2.45 HAs of which, all is planted with coffee. His family also produces corn and beans for their own consumption. Finca Las Anonas, owned by Don Pascual Teletor, is also a strong contributor to this lot. The farm is located in the village of Chimacho in Cubulco. Don Pascual is also one of the most collaborative producers in the Volcafe Way group. Don Pascual used to live and work in the U.S., but he always wanted to come back to Cubulco to become a coffee producer. He currently has a plot of 8.4 HAs of which 1.45 HAs are planted with coffee. Besides coffee he also has other crops, such as beans and corn, for his own consumption.


COLOMBIA Nariño

Country: Colombia. Region: Nariñ0. Farm: Various smallholder farmers. Varietals: Castillo, Caturra, Colombia, Tabi, Typica. Notes: Juicy, sweet and savory with fruit acidity and a smooth heavy mouthfeel; sugar cane juice, lots of chocolate with tomato, apple and lemon flavors. Elevation: 1600-2300m. Processing: Washed.

Nariño is the southwestern-most department in Colombia along the border with Ecuador, with one of its main boundaries being the Pacific Ocean. The climate here is unusual even in a place as geographically diverse as Colombia: Dry, rugged terrain and dramatic slopes and valleys create conditions that boost the big, sparkling, and juicy quality of the coffees. Warm, humid air collects in the lowlands during the day and creeps up the mountainside at night, which allows coffee to thrive much higher than commonly thought possible, all the way up to 2,300 meters.


Bike park blend

Bike parks are an integral part of the mountain biking scene. From world-class sites like Whistler in British Columbia to Rotorua in New Zealand (and everything in between) there is no other experience like days on end of lift-assisted runs, big air, cramped hands, sketchy rocky lines, massive berms, drops, smiles, high-fives, whoops, and crashes ... this is what bike parks are all about. Instead of naming this coffee blend after one particular trail or park we wanted to dedicate it to all bike parks out there. Thank you for being rad.

The Bike Park Blend consists of 50% Guatemala + 50% Colombia. See descriptions above.


honduras el pelón

Region: El Pelón. Producer: Cristina Lara. Varietals: Catuaí, IHCAFE90, Lempira. Notes: plum, honeydew melon and pear. Body: Heavy. Acidity: Balanced. Processing: Washed. Elevation: 1350m.

Cristina Lara and the other 5 members of her household are growing coffee on a plot of just under 5 hectares in El Pelón, a community in the Department of Intibucá, just a few miles up the road from Marcala. She’s been growing coffee for eighteen years.

Cristina Lara is growing the classic Latin American Catuaí, a Brazilian hybrid of Mundo Novo (itself a spontaneous hybrid of Bourbon and Typica) and Caturra (a dwarf mutation of Bourbon). Catuaí, while well-loved for its vigor, yield, and short stature, is unfortunately susceptible to rust. To address this, Honduras’ IHCAFE (Instituto Hondureño del Café) bred cultivars for resistance, resulting in (among others) Lempira and IHCAFE90, both of which are grown by Cristina Lara. These are independently developed Catimors, both being the result of unique crosses of the Timor Hybrid and Caturra. Both have been deemed susceptible to rust in recent years, having fallen victim to the fungus’ uncanny ability to evolve.


Trail Builders BLEND

You've heard of the adage "no dig, no ride." Trails don't get built by themselves. Sure, in times past mountain bikers used to ride old cattle or horse trails which would eventually become designated mountain bike trails but they are a far cry from the meticulously hand-crafted (and machine-crafted) trails of today. There has never been a better time to be a mountain biker than right now. As much of that is related to technological advancements in the bike industry the same can be said for trail building (and maintenance) techniques. So we wanted to dedicate a coffee to all of you who spend endless hours shoveling, digging, smoothing, and raking our trails. Thank you.

The Trail Builders Blend consists of 50% Honduras + 50% Colombia. See descriptions above.
