    The Coffee: Embark on a flavor journey with our medium roast Colombian coffee, sourced from smallholder farmers in the breathtaking Medellin region of Antioquia. Grown at altitudes of 1300-1500m on rich volcanic loam soil, this EP-graded coffee features a harmonious blend of Castillo, Caturra, Colombia, and Typica varietals. The beans are fully washed and dried in solar dryers to protect them from rain, ensuring a consistently exceptional cup. Delight in the balanced notes of dried orange, berry, and chocolate.

    The Inspiration: This coffee pays homage to John Green's debut novel, Looking for Alaska, a coming-of-age story that explores themes of love, loss, and the search for meaning in life. Just as the book's protagonist, Miles, embarks on a transformative journey of self-discovery, our Looking for Arabica invites you to explore the captivating flavors and unique terroir of Colombian coffee.
