This is our third coffee from Mikava estates, and we couldn’t be happier! Known for their high quality and experimental processes, this Washed coffee does not disappoint. The flavor starts with a punch of pure cacao, that gets sweeter as the raspberry acidity comes through and is balanced out with a heavy cream at the finish. This is a coffee for everyone.

Mikava Estates is the first farm that we worked with to directly import coffee. The farm is run by father and son team Paul and Kevin Doyle. They have been working hard the last few years to produce the best coffee possible. We think they are offering some of the best coffees we’ve ever tasted from that part of the world and you don’t have to just take our word for it, they also took first place in the Colombia Cup Of Excellence! We have loved working with them so far and continue to look forward to what they come out with next!
