Wo Wo Joe Coffee is Something Special
Each bag is 1 full pound (16 ounces), more than the 12-ounce bags sold by most online coffee roasters.
Wo Wo Joe Coffee - Original Jinotega
Nicaragua. On the way up the mountain to Jinotega's high altitude coffee-growing region is a statue of an ancient king in a tiny park. The longer we look at the statue, the more we wonder what the king is holding in his hands. Sloths slowly climb in the trees overhead. A guardabarranco bird makes its loud, distinctive call. Several people enjoy the weather in the park and an elderly gentleman stands nearby, also studying the statue. He wears a white, lightweight suit and summer hat. We ask him about what the king holds.
"Señor," he said. "es una taza de café." Translation: It's a cup of coffee. But this is Jinotega and that makes sense.
Our best-selling coffee. An incredible heirloom bean. Direct Trade, organic, shade grown in volcanic soil at 1500 meters above sea level. Hand-picked, hand-sorted. Washed. From a single farm that's been in the same family for 91 years. Those who know the outstanding coffees of Jinotega will find this one extra-special. Low acidity, sweet approach with vanilla notes and a chocolate note on the aftertaste. Whole bean. Big, non-wimpy, 1-Pound bag (456g). Tax and Shipping included.
Wo Wo Joe Coffee Jinotega Honey Process
The way Honey Process coffee is made is tedious. The fruit needs to be removed from the coffee bean, leaving just a trace of the plant mucilage around the bean. Then the drying process must leave as much of the mucilage intact as possible, drying it to a translucent thinness around the bean. It's difficult to do. Only a few people do Honey Process perfectly -- like our Jinotega parter. He gets amazing results. This very special Honey Process coffee amazes with taste twists rarely found in honey process coffees, but with the treasured sweetness that process offers. Grown at 1200 meters above sea level. Bean: Caturra. Taste reminiscent of mountain breezes, toasty with hints of cinnamon. Sweet spice finish. Whole bean. Big, non-wimpy, 1-Pound Bag (456g). Tax and Shipping included.
Wo Wo Joe Coffee Chimaltenango
There's a fountain in the town square of Chimaltenango, a Guatemalan mountaintop town. The waters which flow downhill going west from the town end up in the Pacific Ocean. Fountain waters flowing down on the mountain's east side end up in the Atlantic. With volcanic soils, 1800 meter elevation and a microclimate with perfect humidity, the farm belonging to our Chimaltenango partner is perfect. Process: washed. Bean: bourbon. Tasting notes: Smooth, buttered brown sugar peanuts. Rich cocoa finish. Whole bean. Big, non-wimpy, 1-Pound Bag (456g). Tax and Shipping included.
Wo Wo Joe Coffee - Yirgacheff
Goats, coffee and Ethiopia. Do they go together? History says yes. The legendary discoverer of coffee was a 9th Century Ethiopian goatherd named Kaldi. He and his goats discovered coffee in the Yirgacheff region, in mountainous southern Ethiopia. Kaldi's goats ate the fruit of the coffee plant and, thoroughly caffeinated, started dancing around. Curious, he tried the fruit himself, and started dancing with his goats. The beverage evolved later. This is an Heirloom Variety Coffee Bean AND is Natural Process. (Our very picky Yirgacheff partner farms his coffee the old fashioned-way.) Tasting notes: Earthy, Pepper with notes of dried fruit and berry. And, a full finish that keeps on giving. Whole bean. Big, non-wimpy, 1-Pound Bag (456g) Tax and Shipping included.
