Taste:
Colombia Java El Edén from El Vergel farms brews as an expressive cup, worthy of the ALLOCATION name. Defined by red plum sweetness paired with pink pineapple acidity, a sweeter and juicier fruit when compared to traditional pineapple, the cup is brimming with expressive flavors of hibiscus, rosewater, orange marmalade, and golden raisins depending on preferred brew method.

About Farm:
Produced in Fresno Tolima in Colombia, El Vergel Estates is managed by the Bayter brothers and their mother Marta. This project began in 1995 based on the conventional Colombian coffee and avocado production growth for over 15 years. El Vergel became known as one the largest producers in their region, leading them to provide economic growth to hundreds who worked with the farm. The Bayter brothers also processed and exported this coffee, providing fair pay to the farm and their workers. PRESS is excited to work with this farm and can't wait to offer more of their coffees.

About Variety:
The Java variety, while fairly new to the market, has been recognized by Panama and become popular amongst smallholder growers in Latin America since 2016. It offers a taller tree that can produce more coffee but is tolerant to major flora diseases and has a low fertilizer requirement. The coffee's tasting quality brings high cupping scores and incredible flavor notes. The Java variety has been one of the most rare of the estate, but El Vergel farms were able to plant over 7,000 plants in June of 2016.

Located at 1,450 masl and facing the snowy mountain El Ruiz, the micro lot of El Edén possesses a very low density per hectare. Java plants reach a radius of up to 3 meters from the center of the stem, which increases the yield per plant and guarantees that plant has space to obtain resources.

About Process:
This coffee was exported and processed by Elias and Shady Bayter. This ALLOCATION is the first time working with them and we are extraordinarily delighted, as their coffees score high and make a big impact in the local farming community. For this coffee, the Bayter brother's have developed a unique process based on the characteristics of the beans. They implemented and extended anaerobic fermentation process with an additional step of introducing water to stabilize the temperature of the fermentation. The fermented coffee then is dried in the sun for an extended period in four stalls during the process, enhancing the profile and obtaining the explosive yellow fruit profile with a complex body.

More Than An Online Store

The Press Coffee story begins in 2008 with Steve Kraus and wife Tram Mai who had a passion for great coffee. Not finding the quality they were looking for, they decided to start a specialty coffee shop of their own. Opening just months before the recession of 2008 Steve and his wife were tested from the very start.  Fortunately, their passion and commitment for making great coffee won the loyalty of their customers and kept them afloat. They were able to survive what was a difficult time for many much stronger and Press Coffee was born. 

Over 14 years and 9 valley locations later, Press Coffee has become an Arizona staple among specialty coffee enthusiasts while earning national recognition for their coffees. Although Press has evolved over the years, they have stayed true their beginnings: sourcing the best possible product, using only the best equipment, but most importantly finding team members that share the Press passion for amazing coffee. Remaining quality driven and community focused Press Coffee not only supports Arizona charities but the coffee farmers around the world supplying our passion.

We share our passion for specialty coffee by providing the highest quality coffee, service and knowledge with our customers and community every day. We roast our coffee Monday - Friday to ensure the freshest cup, whether you're in one of our cafes or your brewing coffee by PRESS at home.

Why Choose Press Coffee Roasters?

What is specialty coffee?

Specialty coffee is a category of coffee that is formally rated and scored at least 80 out of 100. Coffee is scored using a scaled that has been created by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) to establish specific desirable attributes within coffee. You’ll often hear the term “specialty coffee shop” which refers to a cafe that serves exclusively coffee that scores over 80pts.

How do I brew my coffee?

Every way to brew coffee can be a great way! We use a Chemex in our cafes, but there are more methods available than we could begin to mention on this FAQ. The keys to great coffee for any method are grinding fresh, using great water, and maintaining an ideal ratio of coffee to water.

Is your coffee fair trade?

With every coffee we purchase, we are committed to positively impacting the communities we work with on the social, economic, and environmental level. This includes supporting sustainable growing practices, paying fair prices, and sourcing through direct relationships. With every coffee we source, we are committed to improving the lives of smallholders farmers, combating climate change, and the preservation of heirloom coffee varieties.

Is your coffee organic?

We always aim to buy the best coffees available and establish long-term farming relationships. Often times these coffees are certified organic, although they are always coming from farms that have good farming practices. If a coffee is certified organic you will see that noted on the coffee’s page.

What is the roast level of your coffee?

We roast each coffee differently from each other to bring out the best qualities of each lot. Our coffees are a medium to light roast, which promotes more flavor from the beans.

What's the shelf life of coffee?

Coffee is an agricultural product at its core and, although coffee never spoils, its quality does diminish over time. We recommend using coffee within 60 days of its roast date, although we’ve had excellent cups of coffee upwards of 90 days.

What's the best way to store my coffee?

We typically recommend storing coffee in sealed Press coffee bags, in a cool, dark place like a cabinet. For larger quantities of coffee like our 5lb bags, you may choose to use an air-tight container to reduce oxidation and promote a longer shelf life.

When will my order ship?

All of our coffees are roasted to order. We roast, package, and ship coffees Monday - Friday. We typically roast on the 1st business day after and order is placed, package and ship on the 2nd. Ex. If you order on Tuesday, your coffee will be roasted Wednesday and shipped Thursday.
