About the farm:
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.
