Single Source Coffee
December 6th, 2011
For those interested in how coffee gets from the coffee plantation to your mug, the New Yorker magazine has an interesting article on El Salvadorian farmer Aida Batlle. Batlle moved from Miami to El Salvador in 2002 to begin growing coffee on family land and quickly obtained a following from a variety of major independent coffee roasters throughout the United States.
While the single-source coffee that Batlle specializes in producing for her customers hasn’t made its way to single-serve brewers like Keurig and Tassimo, Nespresso’s Pure Origine line of Grand Crus — Dulsão do Brasil, Rosabaya de Colombia, and Indriya from India — has taken advantage of the increasing demand for single-source coffee with those single source roasts.
