Coffee from farmer Lazara Perez comes to us through a exporter/importer partner nameed Shared Source, whose headquarters are in the Pacific Northwest. They do heavy work in Colombia, Guatemala and Kenya, differentiating themselves from other importers by taking a more hands-on approach to buying and relationship-building. Shared Source buys "parchment" from trusted farmers and co-ops and handles the final milling themselves. This enables them to have hands-on control over quality as well as direct payment to farmers for their work. This is the second year Shared has purchased coffee from Lazara through her co-op partners ASDEFLOR and they were so pleased with how her coffee performed last season that they paid her more this season.

We contracted Lazara's entire 2018-19 specialty quality output so we will be the only roaster offering her coffee. It is important to us that our all day/every day coffee has a face and a name and not be relegated to a blend. We want coffees in this slot to have character and a unique presence but still maintain approachability. In Lazara’s coffee we find heaps of sweetness in the form of graham cracker and marshmallow aromas, cut with a black cherry-like acidity, a silky body and a lingering finish. This profile is versatile and unique, giving it life across many brewing methods.
