Finca La Concepción
We met Manuel Pereira at Finca La Concepcion a little over four years ago. In that time, we have purchased something close to 20,000 pounds of his coffee. Every year Manuel’s coffee has been remarkably consistent, both from roast to roast and harvest to harvest, and we have been able to use it in more ways than we’d planned each year. This summer has really highlighted our reliance on the incredible coffee Manuel produces. Delays at origin have pushed most of our new harvests’ arrival dates considerably. While clearing out existing inventory is ultimately the goal, we’ve found ourselves looking at empty pallets and refreshing tracking information a lot lately. In the middle of all of this, we knew that Finca La Concepcion would be among the first to arrive. This knowledge was a comfort to us because we know we can use Concepcion wherever we need it. It’s flavor profile is the same as always - guava jam, nectarine, chocolate mousse. Finca La Concepcion is our Swiss Army Knife (that tastes a little like a Swiss cake roll) and we’re so relieved to have it back in our lineup.
