Posted by GenovaWebArt Collaborator on


This week, the full April team joined together at the roastery to present our latest monthly Subscription release. Our subscription members receive between 1 to 5 bags of coffee every month, and we're committed to providing them with not only the highest quality roasted coffee but also offering access to our roasting specifications and an approach towards brewing.

There are many excellent characteristics of this coffee, however, it is most commonly regarded for its distinct flavour intensity and consistently recurring berry notes....

Should You Visit a Coffee Farm?

Posted by GenovaWebArt Collaborator on


What can be gained from visiting a coffee farm? It is very common to see professionals from all sizes of a coffee business undertaking annual origin trips but for what reasons? At April we believe that knowing your farmer and respecting the partnership is integral to maintaining a healthy supply chain.

Coffee Subscription July 2019

Posted by Patrik Rolf Karlsson on


This week, Patrik jumped back into the roastery to present our latest monthly Subscription release. Our subscription members receive between 1 to 5 bags of coffee every month, and we're committed to providing them with not only the highest quality roasted coffee but also offering access to our roasting specifications and an approach towards brewing. This month, we sent our members the only Bolivian coffee we've been working with this season. As a washed Gesha varietal, we were really curious about how the varietal would shine through the Bolivian terroir. It's been a really fun experience to roast this coffee. You can expect to find incredible sweetness for a washed processed coffee, more comparable to a natural coffee but still...

This years Sparkling Cold Brew

Posted by Patrik Rolf Karlsson on


This week, Patrik has been tasting our latest edition of Sparking Cold Brew, this time produced using a fully washed Ethiopian heirloom varietal grown and processed by Gustavo Landivar in Ecuador. We launched this product out of frustration with a cold brew as a general product. It is very rare that you find a cold brew that is as delicious and satisfying as the description and the labor-intensive nature of the product makes it difficult for small businesses to attempt or replicate. Watch this week to learn more about our latest version, as well as what we find to be the most important variables to control when creating a product like this.

Our subscription members receive between 1 to 5 bags of coffee every month, and we're committed to providing them with not only the highest quality roasted coffee but also offering access to our roasting specifications and an approach towards brewing.

Grown at Finca Limoncillo, located in the La Dalia region of the Matagalpa district in Nicaragua, this hybrid of both Pacas and Marogogype is not necessarily the highest yielding varietal however...
