Coffee Description

Santa Isabel grabs your attention with a vibrant, juicy raspberry sparkle and finishes nicely with sweet honey notes that linger. Its thick stone fruit sweetness is something you've got to try for yourself, but trust us when we say, it won't disappoint.

About Luis "Wicho" Valdez III of Guatemala

We have enjoyed working with Luis "Wicho" Valdez III for several years. Wicho actively chose to return to the Valdez family farm, which has been in the family for almost 150 years, and get involved in coffee farming. He has successfully made it into an operation known for excellent practices and the highest quality coffees. His recent work involves farming practices that use shade and specific pruning schedules to give each tree the appropriate amount of light and air to grow to its fullest possible production. Wicho doesn't just like coffee farming, “We really, really love coffee. That’s what we do.”

Coffea Roasterie

Coffea Roasterie launched their flagship location and roasting program in 2009 with the mission to source, roast, brew and serve coffee without compromise. Since that time, they’ve expanded their presence in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with two additional retail cafes and a growing wholesale/cafe partner program in the region.

Coffea’s goal is to bridge the gap between coffee farmer and coffee drinker; to help coffee lovers know the farm, farmer, and process so that they get more than just a cup of coffee. The folks at Coffea do what they do because they love coffee, and the role that Specialty coffee plays in the world. Coffea Roasterie is passionate about creating community through the people and stories that connect us all.
