Espresso Emilia has been our mainstay espresso for years! It's a wonderful blend of Indonesian and South American coffees. We roast this blend to draw out hints of cocoa, hazelnut, and a smooth body.
We serve Emilia every day in our downtown Wenatchee café as our primary espresso. It's a sweet, delicate espresso designed for straight shots and small drinks, but it is excellent in any brew method.

Costa Rican coffee is known for having a rounded body, clean acidity and floral aromatics. We roast this Costa Rican coffee to highlight notes of caramel, orange zest and almond.
Coffee plants were first introduced to Costa Rica from Cuba in 1700s and began being commercially cultivated in the 1800s. Costa Rica was the first Central American country to commercially produce coffee. Coffee has been key to the development of their infrastructure and economy ever since. Costa Rica exports some of the top coffee grown world-wide and is a mainstay in the U.S. specialty market.
This coffee is a delicious blend of South and Central American coffees, highlighting smooth notes of chocolate with stonefruit sweetness.
We roast and blend Squilchuck to achieve a consistent, excellent flavor. This blend appeals to a broad range of coffee palates, making it a favorite at our downtown Wenatchee café.
Ethiopian coffees are known for displaying a wide range of tropical and citrus fruit flavors along with floral aromas. This Natural Ethiopian Guji from the Guracho Washing Station has wonderful notes of Blueberry, Caramel, Malt, and has a very syrupy, juicy body.
Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee. Coffee was cultivated in Ethiopia in the 1500s, with farming practices remaining relatively unchanged to this day.
This coffee from the Rebuild Women's Hope Cooperative is a wonderful example of some of the best offerings from the DRC, with wonderful notes of pineapple, vanilla, brown sugar, baking spice, and a syrupy, juicy body.
Marcelline Budza, inspired by her own mother’s resilience, established Rebuild Women’s Hope (RWH) in 2013 along the shores of Idjwi, a large remote island in the middle of Lake Kivu in eastern Congo with a vision “to place women at the center of the integral development of her community” and that “building the hope of women is building the hope of the entire nation.”
Even in its early days, the cooperative has been investing in the lives of members in meaningful ways. Micro-credit programs are hard to access and often come with exorbitant interest rates, so RWH offers pre-harvest, interest-free loans which producers can repay during the harvest with either cash or cherry. They also have plans (and now also the land) to build a health clinic on the island as many members currently lack access to basic health services. Additionally, RWH is offering an incentive program where they give members a cow or a goat at the end of the season if they reach certain cherry-delivery thresholds.
Coffee production has been, like every facet of life in the DRC, subject to the forces of decades of civil conflict. Recently, though, because of international aid, and the specialty coffee industry, the country has been able to produce coffees that can compete well with the best offerings from Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya.
This Fair Trade, Organic espresso, is a combination of Sumatran and Central American coffees. We roast this coffee to achieve rich, dark chocolate notes and a syrupy, sweet body. We designed Vero to be a little darker roast than our average. It's a quality option for those that prefer a more traditional espresso. And it's delicious in larger drinks with milk and flavors.
The blending of the Sumatran and American origins produces a high level of consistency and quality that can be depended on for a continually enjoyable cup of coffee all year. Although we designed this blend as an espresso, it brews wonderfully as drip, a pour-over, French press or Aeropress.

This Honduras coffee is Certified Organic. Honduran coffee can exhibit a large range of different flavor profiles from sweet chocolaty flavors with a creamy body to citrus fruit flavors with a bright acidity and a medium body. We roast this profile to draw out deep chocolate, full body and a clean finish.
18th century European traders first introduced coffee to Honduras, and the country began to grow coffee commercially in the mid-19th century. Honduras produces more coffee than any other country in Central America and is the 7th highest producer world-wide.
This Honduran decaf coffee is Fair Trade Organic, Rainforest Alliance, and Swiss Water Processed. We designed this roast profile to bring out notes of smooth caramel, vanilla, and creamy body.
The Swiss Water Process is a patented process that removes the caffeine using only water. The flavor of the coffee remains delicious and consistent and avoids the unpleasant side effects that result when caffeine is removed using chemicals.
This is the coffee that we serve for both our decaf espresso and drip coffee in the Mela cafe. It's great for making split-shot/half-caf drinks, drinking straight, or any other way that you might like to cut down on the caffeine and still enjoy your favorite coffee drinks.
We roast this Organic Sumatra a little darker than our usual to draw out notes of cocoa and spice with a syrupy body and a balanced acidity. The unique green coffee processing style in Sumatra creates a wild, rich flavor profile specific to the region.
Sumatra, an Indonesian island, produces much of the nation’s coffee. Indonesia itself produces a fifth of the world's coffee.
