Blue State Coffee offers distinct and exceptionally delicious microlot coffees. Most of our microlots were chosen on our trips to origin and all of our microlots are delicious! Our current offerings are below. Please specify which you would like in the special instructions of your order.
Colombia, El Retiro, Antioquia This coffee is grown on a farm named "El Retiro" owned by Gustavo de Jesus Rivera in the Caicedo municipality of the department of Antioquia in Colombia. The farm is located at an elevation of 7200 feet above sea level and is one of the highest grown coffees we've offered at Blue State Coffee. This elevation produces a particular microclimate that allows the coffee to develop slowly, and combined with a longer fermentation time using a lower water temperature for this washed process coffee, creates a complex, delicious cup. The infrastructure for specialty coffee is new and developing for this region, and it is rare that a coffee is separated from an individual farm and brought to market. We are one of few to offer this coffee and are very happy to support the growth of specialty coffee in this area.

This coffee comes from the farm “Los Tuneles.” It is owned by Juan David Chavez, who is dedicated to the production of all organic coffees. The farm, which is 4921 feet above sea level, earns its name, “Los Tuneles” from 3 stone tunnels that cross through the farm. David is also the president of the COMSA Cooperative, which supports small local producers in the Marcala region of Honduras.

Cascara is the dried fruit shell left over after the two coffee beans have been removed from each coffee fruit. Cascara normally ends up as compost at many farms, but with careful drying and attention you can create a wonderful tea that brews a savory, sweet cup.
Net Weight: 8 ounces
How to brew cascara: Steep 3 tablespoons (15 grams) of cascara in 12oz of filtered water (just off the boil) for 5 minutes.
Cascara is delicious served hot or iced, or sweetened with a touch of honey. It can also be added to granola/trail mix and has great potential for other culinary uses!
