Current Offerings (statements by Trailhead):
Guatemala Cafe Femenino
Organically grown from women farmers. With notes of cacao, almond and pecan, this is just the thing in a remote secret camping spot or in your kitchen.
Café Femenino provides direct compensation to women farmers, along with the opportunity and resources to enact positive change in their communities and on their own terms.
Brew it stronger and it will act like a darker roast but without bitterness. Trailhead puts some single-origin-grade coffees into this blend. A natural process Sidamo is paired with a natural process Sumatra. A natural process coffee means the coffee cherry is dried along with the seed. This tends to add body and more fruit notes in the cup. Works superbly as espresso, french press, cowboy coffee and drip.
Notes of cabernet, blackberry and dark chocolate.
Mexico Chiapas Cafe Femenino
A Cafe Femenino organically grown coffee. Notes of cocoa, almond and cinnamon make for a great morning cup.
$1 per bag when purchased online go to support the Kenton Women's Village in Portland, Oregon. The village is a community of tiny homes that house women who might otherwise be houseless.
Honduras Clemente Martinez
A washed coffee with notes of caramel and hazelnuts. It's delightfully balanced and we find it difficult to articulate why this coffee is so enjoyable. The notes don't sound extraordinary but the coffee absolutely is. Give it a try!
