Good Land Organics, CaturraGoleta, CA

Coffee Varietal: Bourbon & Pacas
Tasting Notes: Cinnamon stick, honey and mandarin orange
The beautiful bouquet of flavors portrayed in this cup marks the journey of California Coffee and it pays tribute to where it all began: an organic tropical fruit farm. The cup is complex, balanced, and sweet. It reminds us of walking through a coffee orchard after a winters rain – where luck feels abundant and each step moves you with gratitude.

Good Land Organics:
Jay Ruskey

Good Land Organics is the first commercial coffee farm in California.

It is nested in the hills above Goleta, CA, overlooking a majestic view of the Pacific Ocean. Jay Ruskey began farming this land over 25 years ago. This organic farm is layered with over a dozen subtropical and exotic crops, contributing both to its diversity and charm. In season fruit can be purchased on Good Land Organic’s online store.

Coffee was first attempted as a trial in 2002, but this crop quickly won the attention of both Jay and the world for its success. After years of trial and error, Jay identified a replicable farming system that consistently produced high-quality delicious coffee. In 2011, he decided to share this crop with farmers across Coastal Southern California. Through his new venture, Frinj Coffee, Jay and his team are leading the way for California in becoming the world’s next producing coffee region.

Good Land Organics is now the flagship coffee farm and headquarters of Frinj Coffee. Inc. It is home to over a dozen Coffea arabica varietals which are also the parent plants for our breeding program.
