Our Special Release coffees are unique seasonal microlots we purchase in small quantities that are available for a limited time.
This season's special release is a unique microlot sourced by Mokha King Coffee from Al Mashtal Al Burhani, a collection centre in the village of Daar Shaal, which is in the eastern region of Haraaz . The trees in this lot were planted in 2019 and raised organically with continuous care. Once the trees were ready for harvest, the cherries were carefully hand-picked and naturally sundried on raised beds. We were extremely fortunate to be able to purchase the entire lot and are excited to be able to share this unique offering!
When we drink this coffee we think of...
date, banana, cinnamon, apple
Origin: Daar Shaal, Haraaz
Elevation: 2,150 masl
Social Coffee was an idea that was born from Beyond Bread, a small artisanal bakery located in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood on West 4th avenue. At Beyond Bread, the loaves and pastries are meticulously prepared using carefully selected, high quality ingredients with a focus on producers with a commitment to sustainable agriculture and biodiversity.
The idea behind Social Coffee was to create coffees that matched Beyond Bread’s standards for high quality sustainable products. These values are represented in Social Coffee’s line-up with organic coffees used for both our Final Proof Espresso Blend and Swiss Water Decaf Cascadia Blend, and traceable single origin coffees used for all of our filter coffees.
By purchasing high quality, traceable specialty grade coffee, we support transparency and are able to provide recognition to our producers. By focusing on coffees that are produced using sustainable methods, we can ensure that specialty coffee can continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.
At Social Coffee, all of our coffees are carefully selected, prepared in small batches, and packaged by hand. We love what we do and our goal is to make every cup our best.
