By the way... What's CP Select? Well, coffee is a yearly crop and much like wine, some crops really sing. While all Specialty Coffee farmers do their best and many farms are extremely consistent, sometimes the magic moves around. On our menu you'll see a number of farms called out by name; La Minita, Kauai Coffee, La Torcaza and others with established records for high quality and consistency. But you'll also see a number of choices we call CP Select. CP Select choices are instances where things need to change in order to stay the same. And that's where we're a little different.
Our CP Select choices like our Estate choices are chosen for their high quality in combination with choosing for consistency from order to order. That's for you. This can be an important element when you've found a type of coffee you love or a certain blend you've created that you want to maintain. Perfection is a difficult goal but we do strive for that ongoing level of quality and consistency in each CP Select choice; that its same as possible each time you order. While those CP Select coffees do lose their bag to bag pedigrees as we source our beans different farms as we search for our choices. They do carry our brand on the site, that's our seal of approval as a CP Select choice. Familiarity and consistency order to order. Our philosophy in the beans menu is one of "jewels and jeans." We absolutely have jewels such as Cup of Excellence beans and many other extraordinary Rock Stars of coffee. And, we also offer super high quality "blue jeans" of coffee; familiar, comfortable, worry-free, trustworthy, high-quality daily drivers. These are our CP Select beans. Equal quality chosen for repeat orders.
