Who is this coffee for?

From day one, Elder Stone has been a fan favorite. It has a deep, nutty flavor. The combination of caramel and almond flavor notes is absolutely delicious. It has lower acidity than our limited edition light-roast coffees, but is not quite as bold as our darker coffees.

The story behind Elder Stone

This amazing coffee is grown by several families in the Togoima indigenous reservation, the land where our founder Ervin Liz was born. Togoima is a mountainous region with deep canyons and massive cliffs. A stone outcropping near Ervin's home resembles a face, which reminds him of his elders. The coffee is grown between 5,905 and 6562 FASL. Characteristic flavors of the coffees grown in this region include caramel, condensed milk, and raw sugar cane. Other flavors - like almonds, citrus, red fruits, and even vanilla - can also be discovered. The famers who grow this coffee are Dilmer and Luz Muchicon, Abraham Nez, Ramiro Pancho, William Nez, Angelica Liz, Hugo Nez, Luis Diaz, Alirio Muchicon, Helena Muchicon, Edith Nez and 10 other families.
