Coffee Description

The current incarnation of One Village's Villager Espresso bubbled up when the roasting team developed a competition blend for America’s Best Espresso in New York. The company won third place and wanted to share the coffee with everyone, so the competition blend became the newest incarnation of the seasonally-rotating Villager blend. The blend is built around washed Yirgacheffe Kochere, a complex coffee with notes of apricot, peach and citrus (plus big body for a Yirg). The second coffee in the blend bolsters the Kochere. One Village "plugs and plays" throughout the year with various Colombian microlots from Huila and Nariño sourced by Pergamino Coffee, a producer/roaster/cafe/exporter based in Medellín, Colombia. The target profile for the Latin America component is juicy, round and balanced. For the roast, OV aims at the lighter side of medium with good development. Drip it, pull shots with it, it works!

One Village Coffee

One Village Coffee was born of an encounter. That may sound a bit dramatic, but when owners Steve and Lois Hackman traveled to Africa and Honduras in the early 2000’s, what they saw captivated their hearts: a community of people working together to better themselves and those around them. “Coffee, which is deeply tied to the earth and has amazing powers to connect people, quickly became a way for us to create our own village.” And in 2007 they did exactly that. First in the Hackman’s basement in small-town Souderton, Pennsylvania, where they roasted coffee on a 5-pound roaster, then in their garage. When they outgrew the garage in 2009, they moved down the road a couple of miles to their current facility.

“Our mission since 2007 has been to connect growers, roasters, and coffee drinkers through our quality coffee and commitment to stewardship. We recognize that One Village Coffee would not exist without the people that drink our coffee, and the people that grow it. We want to honor the farmers and the whole supply chain by roasting the most delicious coffee we can.”

A family business, One Village Coffee’s ten-person team is approachable and humble. Whether they’re helping Honduran farmers build beehives, teaching coffee folk everything from brewing methods to cafe design, or giving back to their local community by providing 100,000 homeless Philadelphians with coffee every year, they create community, one cup at a time.
