Sqirl Coffee in 8oz Holiday Sizing.
A little bit a bout what we are doing with Sqirl Coffee which is in collaboration with the esteemed Andrew Barnett from Linea Caffe.
We are buying beans directly from - Aleco Chigounos - a dear friend who’s company, Red Fox Coffee Merchants - “is devoted to building equitable and resilient supply chains that give coffee farmers a voice in the marketplace.”
Sqirl’s goal is to work with Aleco to directly purchase small lots of coffee from farmers who are invested in their land and from specific plots on their farms that provide a unique take of terroir.
With this viewpoint, we are able, mostly, to purchase the entire lot of beans from the location — making the coffee exclusive to Sqirl. Other times, the coffee comes from a group of farmers - (a co-op from a village for example) and even though there are more beans than we need, we’ll purchase them anyway knowing that maybe one or two other roasters may have the coffee…because it’s just too good to pass up.
This Columbia Nariño is exclusive to Sqirl. With a round mouthfeel and hints of vanilla and apple, it's a friendly coffee perfect served black or with a splash of milk.
