Introducing our Micro Lot Series featuring small lot, single origin coffees grown in limited quantities on small farms in premium coffee growing regions around the world. Each coffee in our Micro Lot Series has a special story we’ll share, and features a lot number on the label, ensuring traceability back to its specific country, region, and producer.
Our founder, Lowell Grosse, spent 17 years in the coffee importing business prior to starting Charleston Coffee Roasters in 2005. Over the years, he built relationships with coffee producers at “source” in coffee growing regions from Central and South America to Africa and Indonesia and beyond. Lowell and our team of talented roasters personally select these unique coffees, and slow roast each Micro Lot to introduce you to some very special flavors from around the world.
We’ll offer new Micro Lots throughout the year, so you can enjoy each one-of-a-kind coffee while it lasts. But please order quickly if you’re interested as each Micro Lot is specially roasted in a limited supply. Once it’s gone, it’s gone!
Our medium roast Ibisi-Natural coffee, Lot #22079D, is grown and processed on Ibisi Mountain in southern Rwanda. This coveted red bourbon varietal is grown at an altitude of 5,500 feet at Bernard Uwitje’s farm. The coffee is dried on raised beds for 10-14 days, using a natural process, where the coffee is laid out to dry within the cherry. This gives the beans their fruit-forward flavor with a delightful sweetness. Bernard partnered with the Rwanda Trading Company to build his Ibisi Mountain washing station. Through RTC’s investments in agribusiness training programs during the past 10 years, producer partners have seen an 86% increase in farm revenue.
Discover this exceptional Micro Lot coffee from Rwanda and uncover for yourself a rare, naturally processed coffee with beautiful fruit forward notes of raspberry, light brown sugar, and subtle hints of cocoa nibs.
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Gedeb
Our medium roast Ethiopian Gedeb, Lot #0515, from the Gedeb Gotiti washing station, is grown in the Yirgacheffe region which is known as the birthplace of coffee. The coffee varietals are heirloom cultivars indigenous to Ethiopia including Kumie, Siga, and Wilsho. The coffee is grown in the shade on steep mountain slopes at an altitude of 6,500 feet above sea level, pulped and allowed to ferment naturally for 28 hours, and then washed and sun-dried on raised beds for 18 days. The result is a bright and complex coffee, with subtle tea undertones specific to the famous Yirgacheffe terroir.
This custom gift box includes two 12oz bags of coffee (in your preferred grind) packaged in a sturdy, handsome, Charleston Coffee Roasters-branded box ready for gifting.
