Sacred Acre - Navigator Espresso

$16.00
In Stock

This is a really solid espresso blend. It’s not too aggressive or too bland, and it has a lot of familiar flavors that are easy to pick up on without being distracting or weird. The initial taste is a big hit of smooth milk chocolate with some hazelnut flavor coming through, and then it goes into a more savory caramel taste with a nice green apple finish. There’s just enough brightness, but it’s not very fruity.

 

This special coffee comes from many places. There are 5 different varietals harvested by farmers in Brazil, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Honduras who organize themselves into groups to help each other.

 

The Catuai and Mundo Novo varietals are sourced from smallholders in Minas Gerais, Brazil. These coffees were shaded most of the day, causing it to mature slowly, allowing a bright acidity and beautiful honey-like sweetness to develop!

 

In Honduras, the COMSA co-op supports 1,200 members across 15 communities on the steep mountain slopes around Marcala. The region has a long history of producing excellent coffee due to its high elevation and cool climate."

Our Mission

We're on a mission to bridge the gap between a better cup of coffee and tea at home and the producers who are passionate about producing it.

We believe that life is like a garden. It can provide so much but it needs to be fed and cultivated. We want to support the community of coffee and tea in a way that feeds and supports everyone involved in the rich and meaningful culture of coffee and tea from producers around the world, to the people who get the products to us here in Edmonton, to the retailers and businesses that sell or serve us the products.

Support Local

What's the difference between buying something on Amazon versus a local craftsperson?

No one will dispute the advantages of big box stores like Walmart and massive online retailers like Amazon. Selection, convenience and price are the three that tend to come to mind for most of us.

While these benefits make a difference in our lives, a question we want to ask is, “what are the invisible costs of buying from these huge multinational companies instead of buying from your local producers and retailers?” They range from jobs lost, to lack of community culture and local innovation and environmental impacts.
