February brings coffee from a new continent!
Voster is a producer in North Sumatra who Jeremy, our head roaster and associate green buyer, knows from his years spent in Indonesia prior to joining Corvus Coffee. Voster focuses on quality, and fully dries his coffee in parchment, which is not the norm in Indonesia.
Sourcing fully washed, or "fully dried in parchment" coffee has been a bucket list item for years, and we're very excited to offer our first lot of such coffee to our coffee subscribers!
This is a great opportunity to taste the flavors that are from the terroir of Indonesia instead of flavors arising from the more traditional process of wet hull.Sign up
One of our core beliefs is that good coffee comes from good people. This idea is hinged upon the idea that no matter where you are in the world there are people who are producing at a high level regardless of their circumstances and regardless of the reward, or lack thereof. Finding a coffee farmer in Indonesia who is willing to delay payment in order to process his coffee in a way that leads to higher quality is one of the best examples of this ideology being played out in real life. This is Voster.
I often relate terroir (soil, rain, slope of ground, temperature) to the vibrance and complexity of flavor in a coffee, and the process (pulping, washing, fermenting, drying) as what leads to the cleanliness in the cup.
Indonesia is often more dominated by flavors which are a factor of "Wet Hulling" the coffee - the process. This leaves the flavors from terroir overshadowed and a mystery. Sourcing fully washed coffee from Sumatra gives us the ability to highlight the true flavors of the origin.

Subscriptions are an outlet for some of the smaller, more limited, batches of coffee from our travels. These could be emerging producers, experimental processes or varieties, and/or small amounts of coffee we've identified as having exceptional quality.
We're raising prices by 300-400% or more for many of the farmers we work with, and adding premiums on top of that for our long term partners. Best of all, we're not doing this through a charity mechanism. The end result is amazing coffee we share with you!Try for free
