TEKTŌN SOURCING AND BLENDING

The seasonal and transparent coffee blend, Tektōn, chases a difficult goal – highlighting complexity while being approachable. Tektōn satisfies the novice or experienced coffee lover. Regular coffee changes throughout the year maintain balance and seasonality.

We commit ourselves to exhibiting the qualities of one of the most flavorful beverages in the world. To do so, we create and construct balanced, intoxicating, and special flavor experiences. Our single origin offerings are delicious and complete by themselves, but blending creates something new and unique. French wine and cocktails, like the Sazerac, guide us. By adding a small amount of five ingredients (sugar, bitters, lemon, absinthe, ice), a serving of whiskey becomes a new experience. This is a different, yet delicious, taste experience than that offered by any neat pour.

Tektōn, a seasonal coffee blend, compliments our single origin offerings. It matches the integrity of those offerings by remaining a seasonal coffee with a transparent supply chain. We embrace the future insight and taste experiences Tektōn will provide.

Our 23rd blend iteration of Tektōn brings coffee from Tanzania into our roastery for the first time. The bright, citrus-forward coffee is grown on the Lyamungo farm on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The other nearly half of the blend is made up of ‘Fronteras del Cauca’ Colombia. It is a community lot from the town of El Tambo, Cauca and sourced through our partnerships with Fairfield Trading and CCS. It is a round and sweet coffee, also found in our current blend of Penrose (v28). The coffees from Tanzania and Colombia merge in Tektōn to present a cup that is balanced with incredible complexity. Citrus acidity and caramel sweetness will be the starring taste notes, but look for both texture and the aftertaste of this cup add characteristics that truly elevate the drinking experience of Tektōn.
