For the past two years we have been lucky enough to bring in a particular small lot coffee from Christian’s farm - this year we're calling it Xalum Special Reserve.

One particular area of the farm stood out as having notably sweeter coffee cherry. This microlot represents a picking solely from this plot, located in the middle of the farm.
