Snow Leopard is a seasonal blend that gives us the opportunity to take single-origin coffees we enjoy on their own and combine them in unique ways to create something delicious! This iteration is built around a vibrant coffee from Kenya that combines peaberry coffees grown by smallholder farmers in the Nyeri and Kirinyaga regions on the slopes of Mt. Kenya. Peaberries are the result of a natural mutation where only one seed develops inside the coffee cherry. Point Lenana is one of Mt. Kenya’s highest peaks and is the inspiration behind this coffee’s name. Kenya Lenana Peaberry’s sweet citrus flavors are showcased in this blend.
We then added a rich, silky and balanced coffee from La Cristalina, a cooperative in Colombia located in the town of Guática, in the Risaralda Department. La Cristalina is dedicated to social, economic, and environmental sustainability and offers members with credit, training, and organizational exchanges. At farm level the group encourages and supports plant renovation and invests in processing improvements to ensure high quality production. This coffee adds depth and body, and rounds out the more assertive flavors of the blend’s other components.
We finished the blend with a coffee from one of Guatemala’s most celebrated farms, Finca El Injerto. It has placed in the finals of Cup of Excellence fourteen times, amassing a stunning seven first place awards! This natural processed, Catuaí variety lot intensifies the blend’s fruit flavors and accentuates the sweet citrus notes of the Kenya Lenana Peaberry.
Together these three coffees culminate in a complex and balanced blend, but this version of Snow Leopard will only be available for a limited time -- as long as supplies of the component coffees last. This seasonally evolving blend is available on an ongoing basis.
