Each day these coffees are a joy to drink.
Santa Lucia is a balanced anytime of day drinker. We like this coffee because it tastes like cocoa and graham cracker with hints of honey. Need we say more?
Well, it's also from a really awesome mill in Costa Rica named Helsar. It's run by Ricardo Perez, who along with his two brothers, each manage a farm and operations at Helsar mill. Santa Lucia's coffee quality is due in part to the excellent processing methods at this mill. As for the farm, Santa Lucia is planted in Villalobos, a dwarf mutation of Typica, and they only use organic farm practices. Santa Lucia was certified organic until last year, when they decided to forego the certification due to cost and bureaucracy.
Throughout our time spent roasting and brewing this coffee we've discovered so much complexity and subtle flavors are to be extracted if you're willing to test the boundaries. Join us in drinking this one!

Coffee from Burundi this year has been incredibly good. Here at Still Vibrato we're proud to offer you this one from Kayanza, in the northern part of the country, from a mill named Gahahe.
Gahahe is a vibrant one, with extreme amounts of character. We think it tastes like a warm spicy cobbler, or maybe refreshing like a mandarin black licorice shakerato. Either way, we think you'll love it because we really do and we have high hopes that you will.
A little about 'Gahahe', it's the name of a coffee cherry collection site (aka washing station) for roughly 600 farmers in Kayanza. Farmers in this area grow mostly older 'bourbon' types, the original coffee cultivar introduced to the area in the 1930s by monks traveling from the island of Reunion (formerly know as Bourbon Island). Gahahe sits at just over 1800 meters above sea level and was built in the 1980s, a time when the world bank was investing heavily in the Burundi's coffee sector.
So now, thanks to a handful of monks and the World Bank, we have this amazingly gorgeous coffee that tastes otherworldly and good. Try some!
Treat yourself to the most lovely, Kercha Dubisa. We are extremely proud to offer you this delicately complex coffee from the Guji zone in southeastern Ethiopia. Kercha Dubisa has lingering notes of summer, with hints of jasmine and watermelon candy. You’ll immediately feel the sunshine on your face with this one!
Kercha Dubisa is very special to us for many reasons besides just taste. It was sourced through a wonderful importer of fine Ethiopian coffees called Dominion Trading located in Spokane, Washington. A great friend of ours who works with them has been spending months at a time in Ethiopia, dialing in the various processes that this coffee goes through before landing in the United States. With the help of processors Ashebir Haro and Tamrat Desta at the wet mill in Dubisa, this coffee was was meticulously cared for. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!
