Why we love it: What's not to love about a full-bodied, sweet, chocolatey coffee? Enjoy daily as an espresso or a deliciously sweet batch brew.
Who it comes from: Jose Carlos Grossi's grandfather began farming coffee in 1879, which ultimately started the family down a path toward innovation and sustainability. Three generations (and nearly a century and a half) later, the Grossi family tradition has expanded beyond growing to include coffee processing and storage.
Why it matters: Jose Carlos Grossi & Sons is a family-run operation committed to social, environmental and economic sustainability, reaching beyond their own plantations to raise the quality (and thus the profits) of the region's coffee community.
