Winter Solstice was developed with the season's short days in mind. Sitting 45˚ north of the equator, Montanans know all too well the struggles of ringing alarms hours before the day's first light.
Rich notes of dark chocolate and molasses highlight this blend of certified Organic and Fair Trade coffees ethically sourced from Indonesia and South America.
Last spring while sourcing coffee in Huehuetenango, Guatemala, we discovered this spectacular microlot coffee from producer Vidal Pérez Ambrocio. Vidal owns a 1.5-hectare farm in a small village called Sipacapa in Guatemala's western highlands.
Vidal's farm, Finca El Mirador, is yielding some of the highest scoring coffees in Guatemala while implementing sustainable agriculture techniques like soil conservation and safe gray water processing.
This coffee is a collaboration of all things delicious: rounded body, delightful sweetness, luscious fruit, and melt-in-your-mouth chocolate.
This winter, we're pleased to partner with the Friends of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center for our seasonal community coffee, First Chair.
First Chair is our tribute to the dedicated riders who rise to predawn alarms to chase untracked pow. Notes of granola, chocolate, and berries highlight a coffee that's perfect for winding drives over mountain passes and sharing thermoses in lift lines.
A portion from every bag sold will be given to the Friends of the GNFAC to ensure they can continue their good work in forecasting and educating southwest Montana's backcountry community.
If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. Mother Nature that is! Supporting healthier rainforests and sustainable farming communities is paramount in our business, and you can taste the devotion in every sip.
Our original treeline can is filled with more than a coffee that gets your morning rolling. A portion from every can sold goes toward supporting the Greater Yellowstone Coalition and protecting wild places near our home. These cans make thoughtful gifts or fun home decor!
Big Sky Lift is our signature blend that celebrates the Land of Shining Mountains and Montana's Big Sky.
This coffee's heavy body and smooth finish have made this a classic Yellowstone Coffee since 1998.
While traveling down the Yellowstone River in 1806, Captain William Clark discovered a small creek flowing out of western Montana’s Crazy Mountains. They later named this stream 'Big Timber Creek' in honor of the giant cottonwood trees that lined the banks of the crystalline waterway. Several decades later, pioneers settled this wide-open valley and designated the community 'Big Timber' after the Corps of Discovery.
This signature blend goes back to Yellowstone Coffee’s foundation and has remained a long-time favorite for brisk mornings on the river and powder days at Bridger Bowl.
Buffalo Blend is a tribute to the American bison that have called Yellowstone home since prehistoric times. Just like the buffalo that roam the western plains, this dark roast is strong, brilliant, and bold.
From the heart of Costa Rica's Central Valley, this coffee captures the classic flavors and characteristics that have popularized Costa Rican coffee around the world.
This medium roast has been profiled to highlight the coffee's sweet, nutty, and floral notes. Easy drinking and clean, this offering will bring the flavors of Costa Rica's lush hillsides to your own home.
Our Regional Select coffees highlight the unique flavors and characteristics typical in famous coffee regions around the world. This offering comes from Colombia's southwestern department of Nariño. Its bright flavors are the result of humid air which collects in surrounding valleys during warm days and later moves into the mountainside during cool nights.
This lot is comprised of coffees from several smallholder farmers who live near the municipality of Colon Genova near the Ecuador border. A premium is paid to these producers for their hard work which is apparent in the cup.
This light roast is smooth and juicy. Our Nariño profile highlights the bright notes of citrus, cream, and caramelized sugars which are typical from southern Colombian coffees.
For years, decaf coffee was an afterthought, but the recent emergence of the sugar cane decaffeination process is shifting more thought and higher quality into caffeine-free coffees. Our current Decaf offering has been sourced from five small producers in Colombia's central department of Caldas and naturally decaffeinated to create a delicious and clean cup.
Our Decaf Colombia is highlighted by strong notes of milk chocolate and subtle, juicy acidity that will leave devoted decaf drinkers questioning whether their coffee was stripped of its caffeine at all!
During the last several years many roasters have transitioned to lighter espresso blends, yet despite this recent fad, we have stayed true to our roots. Today we continue to roast and blend the classic espresso our customers have come to love during the last 20 years.
The bold, rich flavors from our Dark Espresso always finishes with a perfect layer of crema and can stand up to milk and sugar that compliment most espresso drinks.
Our Espresso combines subtle earthy notes from Indonesia with lively flavors from East Africa and South America to create a blend that is bright, full, and well-balanced.
According to ancient legend, Arabica coffee was first discovered after an Ethiopian goat-herder noticed the energizing effects of a small red fruit on his prancing flock of goats.
Centuries later, the coffee plants that originally covered Ethiopia's mountainous hillsides have been cultivated, disputed over, and traded for commercial use. Ethiopia has maintained its legendary status by consistently producing some of the highest quality coffees in the world.
Our Ethiopia offering was sourced from the south central district of Yirgacheffe. This light roast is sweet, velvety, and complex. Our Ethiopia profile highlights notes of candied citrus, peach, and jasmine that are typical from the Yirgacheffe region.
Dark, bold, intense. Our French Roast is roasted with Fair Trade Organic beans sourced from the ASOPROCAFEES cooperative in Colombia's Tolima department.
The 60 contributing producers at ASOPROCAFEES have been focused on growing and processing Fair Trade and Organic coffees since the cooperative's creation in 2011.
We seek coffees grown at high elevations for our dark roasts because denser beans maintain their flavor well past the second crack. Harvested from farms around 2000 meters in the central Colombian Andes, this coffee can handle the extreme temperatures of a French Roast.
The result: a coffee that is rich, smoky, fresh, and ready to be delivered to your door.
Nestled in the mountains of Huehuetenango, the K-Finos cooperative exports many of the finest coffees in Guatemala.
Earlier this year, we discovered this coffee on a cupping table in Huehue while traveling with our friends from Cafe Imports. After cupping 100+ coffees during the course of the trip, we ultimately decided on this particular lot.
This high scoring coffee is comprised of the harvests of several producers from the region who have been paid a premium for their exceptional product. In the cup, this medium roast is balanced and has notes of red fruit and brown sugar.
Until recently, Mexico was never considered a serious contender in the world of specialty coffee, but recent improvements in quality-control and producer education have drastically improved Mexico’s coffees during the last few years.
We selected this lot from a collective of women producers who are members of the GRAPOS cooperative in Chiapas. A premium was paid to each female member who contributed to this lot with the intention of helping increase their farms' production and community investment.
This shade grown offering captures the flavors of Mexico. This full body coffee is highlighted by strong notes of cocoa, pleasant sugars, and mild acidity.
Easy drinking is the best descriptor for this offering from Papua New Guinea's eastern highlands. Not too acidic, not too sweet. Just a satisfying cup that's delicious however you prepare it.
A creamy mouthfeel and notes of nuts and burnt sugar highlight this Wahgi Valley PNG.
During the 17th century, Dutch traders introduced coffee throughout much of Indonesia, including the lush island of Sumatra. Coffee production has since changed hands from Dutch plantation owners to local smallholder farmers.
Coffee from Sumatra is well-known for its savory, earthy flavors which result from the island's growing conditions and the traditional wet-hull post-harvest process.
This particular offering from Sumatra's northern region is noticeably cleaner than coffees from Mandehling. Sumatra Harimau is highlighted by a full body and smokey, cocoa notes.
