Quail Haven, CaturraLeucadia, CA
|Tasting Notes:||Allspice, Candied Apple, and Nutmeg|
Quail Haven sits 420 feet above sea level at the top of a mesa overlooking the coast. Their orchard is primarily planted with Caturra, with only a handful of Geishas. The cup portrays the lasting sweetness we know and love from California Caturras and also hints of floral and tropical delicacies. This year’s crop was notable given the youthfulness of this orchard and we are very excited about sharing this coffee in the years to come.
PLEASE NOTE: COFFEE IS SHIPPED WITHIN ONE WEEK OF ORDERING AND WITHIN 2-3 DAYS AFTER ROASTING

The excellence of this farm’s coffee can be attributed to many factors: such as the dedication of its owners, the Calkin Family, and management company, Mellano & Co. But, not to be overlooked is the performance of the soil itself. This particular property sits in a historic coastal growing area of San Diego, which was once the primary region for the production of crops such as avocados and flowers. Quail Haven sits 420 feet above sea level at the top of a mesa overlooking the coast. We are very excited about sharing this coffee in the years to come as we feel this crop will help define this brand-new region’s typical cup profile.
