A Guide to Our Small Batch Coffee Series

Posted In: How We Source

 

Why Small Batch?

Sometimes we come across a coffee that is so spectacular and unique, but only available in small quantities. We decided to create a whole line dedicated to these exceptional coffees. They are rare, unexpected, and totally worth a try. Introducing our Small Batch lineup – one sip and you’ll see why we couldn’t keep them to ourselves. Available in our online store and select Whole Foods Markets.
