About this coffee

This is Rare Breed Series #002 - our cultivar series from Finca San Jeronimo Miramar. Ethiopia P16 is an experimental cross of Catuai and Rume Sudan. The original seeds were brought to Guatemala from a French research project in the 1980's. Rume Sudan is an heirloom cultivar found in the wild coffee forests of Ethiopia. Thanks to San Jeronimo's meticulous farm manager this is the third of such experimental Ethiopia lines we've been able to share. For those keeping score at home, we've tried P15, P1 and now P16.

This is the second of three cultivar micro-lots we'll be rolling out from Finca San Jeronimo Miramar this year. There's only 100 lbs of each so don't miss your chance to try them all.

About the Bressani Family  & Finca San Jeronimo Miramar

The Bressani family has operated the beautiful Finca San Jeronimo Miramar for over 100 years, and to just call it a coffee farm would be selling it short. Not only are some fantastic coffees being grown and cared for there, but also jersey dairy cows, honeybees, and exotic tropical fruits. Sitting high above all of this is a gorgeous, protected natural reserve and the forest is the lifeblood of the farm with its volcanic terrain feeding the farm’s natural fresh water springs and powers the farm’s entire processing facilities with hydroelectric power.

Our relationship with the Bressanis started back in 2013 on the grounds of Finca San Jeronimo. Since then, we’ve had the pleasure of working directly with their farm and mill management team, helping them develop an understanding of coffee quality once it hits the cup and give them more purpose behind their already stellar experimentation, processes, and logistics operations. Because of this relationship, we continue to see improvements in quality each year and will be continuing to taste and share their latest experiments and variety selections from the wonderful farm.
