Tektōn v.7



We are craftspeople dedicated to exhibiting the qualities of one of the most flavorful beverages in the world. What we attempt to create and construct are flavor experiences that are balanced, intoxicating, and special. While our single origin offerings exhibit qualities that are delicious and complete by themselves, blending can create something unique that none of our coffees offer by themselves. We are inspired by French wine and cocktails like the Sazerac. By adding a small amount of five quality ingredients (sugar, bitters, lemon, absinthe, ice), a serving of perfectly good whiskey becomes a different, yet delicious, taste experience than that offered by any neat whiskey.

We are excited to offer Tektōn as a compliment to 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.

For v7, we’re blending a small bit of coffee from producers in Sidamo, Ethiopia with coffee from La Esperanza in Guatemala (the same place as our current single origin offering). This batch from Esperanza uses the wild fermentation method (traditional to washed coffee), but with added fruit in the fermentation tank to assist and activity of the natural yeasts. The cup is intensely sweet with a lot of complexity in the acidity as it cools. Team taste notes: caramel, graham, malic, stone fruit, strawberry
