Finding a coffee that tastes as good as it smells is a rare treat and one that we're happy to have discovered! It works like a charm as both espresso and filter.

"This direct-trade lot is made up of small farmers' lots from the municipality of Matituy, in the hills of La Florida, Colombia. Sweet and structured, with aromatics that remind us of walnut raisin bread baking in the oven. You'll taste this in the cup, too, along with clove spice and plenty of sweet dark chocolate to round it out."
Kuma, meaning 'bear' in Japanese, was inspired and named after both the founder's bear-like shaggy dog and a visit to Japan. It began in 2008 as a garage roastery in Seattle, then quickly grew to nationwide recognition. Kuma's continued keeping its operation intentionally small, in order to remain fully focused on quality and deliciousness. Kuma purchases the majority of their seasonal coffees direct from origin, paying a premium to farmers well above the commodity or fair trade thresholds.
