The Mavis Bank Estate uses only spring water to sort the green beans, which are then allowed to age for three to four months at 3,000 feet. When the coffee beans develop a greenish blue color, we know it’s ready to ship to our roaster. Brazil Cerrado is Specialty Grade coffee from the interior Cerrado region of Brazil, the world’s largest coffee producing country. Soft-bodied with earthy flavor and subtle walnut notes. Ethiopia Yirgacheffe grows on a farm tucked away near the town of Yirgacheffe in the Sidamo region in South Eastern Ethiopia.

Bali Blue Moon is a medium-bodied coffee from the Kintamani Highlands of Northern Bali, and undergoes a meticulous picking and sorting process to ensure that only the ripest, red beans (where the densest flavors are focused) are used. The coffee cherries are cultivated under alternating rows of orange and tangerine trees to protect the beans and help lock in their unique flavor. A toffee aroma mingled with walnut and semi-sweet chocolate flavors, and a crisp black cherry finish. Creamy aroma with caramel and buttery vanilla flavor.
The tea collections Like green and oolong teas, black tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. Its darker hue and stronger taste result from the greater level of oxidation it undergoes during processing. From delicate Darjeeling to strong Ceylon, each variety has distinct characteristics, making black tea a beloved beverage across the globe. Distinguished by its balanced qualities of both delicacy and depth, oolong tea falls between green and black teas in its degree of oxidation.
Its flavor is less grassy than that of green tea, but less bold than that of black. Many of the finest varieties of oolong grow in Taiwan and Thailand, where the climates produce leaves with a unique, natural sweetness. During processing, oolong leaves may be rolled into elongated curls, or condensed into small spheres. Like oolong and black tea, green tea comes from the plant Camellia sinensis. Green tea’s delightfully delicate flavor is due to its minimal oxidation. It is processed to take a variety of forms, from finely ground powder to long, curling leaves.
Though it originated in China, where it has been consumed for over 4,000 years, green tea is now grown in Japan and Sri Lanka, and enjoyed throughout the world.
