This offering comes from Colombia's southwestern department of Nariño. This exceptionally bright coffee is the result of humid air which collects in the region's surrounding valleys during warm days and then moves into the mountainside during cool nights.
We discovered this coffee earlier this year while traveling in Colombia with our friends from Cafe Imports. This coffee qualified as a Regional Select offering for its exceptional cupping score and it's delicious flavors which highlight the unique characteristics of Nariño.
This lot is comprised of coffees from 18 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.

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.
