Origin Story

Las Rosas Women's Group (Colombia)
Qonqana Washing Station (Ethiopia)
Beneficio La Estrella (Nicaragua)
Capricornio Coffees (Brazil)

Prime Meridian is built around a fully washed from Colombia produced by 300 members of the Association of Women Coffee Growers of West Huila (Asociación de Mujeres Cafeteras del Occidente del Huila), whom make up the Las Rosas Women’s Coffee Project. The project is a multiorganizational effort intended to support the Las Rosas Women’s Group through economic prosperity, social empowerment, and coffee quality. Over the past six years, the women of Las Rosas have showcased their ability to grow and prosper, becoming a source of inspiration for their community.

We then added a citrusy and floral coffee from Ethiopia produced by farmers in Bombe, Sidama. The coffee was processed at the Qonqana washing station, named after a river that passes through the area. The washing station was the first and largest built by Daye Bensa Coffee, a company run by brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo who operate numerous mills in the Sidama region and also export and grow their own coffee. Being one of the first in the area, the washing station is often referred to as "The Mother Station" by locals.

Next, we included a coffee from Nicaragua produced by 126 small scale producers located in the department of Nueva Segovia, approximately 150 miles from Nicaragua’s capital, Managua. This region is very close to the border of Honduras and is part of the Cordillera de Dipilto Nature Reserve. The reserve is a place rich with biodiversity of flora and fauna. The name Estrella comes from the Beneficio La Estrella, the coffee wet mill founded in 2013 in Ocotal.

Finally, we finished the blend with a sweet, nutty and subtly fruity coffee from Brazil. We source natural processed lots from Brazil’s prime growing regions, always ensuring that the flavor profiles match our specifications. The natural or dry method of processing yields mellow flavors, typically imparting hints of dried berries which results when the coffee fruit is left in contact with the bean when drying. The classic nut-toned chocolate flavors of Brazil coffee combine with these delicate fruit notes to build the blend’s rich foundation. When combined, these three distinctly different coffees come together to create an extremely approachable, balanced and complex blend.

Why We Love This Coffee

Featuring coffees from some of the world’s best known and most beloved producing countries, Prime Meridian Blend is designed to be smooth and satisfying. Originally, the blend was developed in collaboration with a Bay Area technology company for serving in their offices. One of their employees suggested the name “Prime Meridian” as a whimsical play on Equator’s name.
