I am NOT a coffee drinker, yet I LOVE this coffee. It has such a good flavor and brews up perfectly every time. It's my husband's preferred brand, now, and this Mexico blend is one of the favorites.
Why It's Awesome
Wild Coffee beans are the cleanest, most Wild bean we could find out of dozens of coffees we tested. These select Premium Grade "1" beans are single-origin, organic and sourced from small farms and crops.
Wild Coffee beans are fresh roasted in small batches 2-4 times a month. The fresh roasted smell is intoxicating.
How To Brew
Drip: 2 tbsp medium grind coffee to 8 ounces of 195-205 degree water.
Pour Over: 28 grams of coarse ground coffee to 310 grams of 200 degree water.
Chemex: 6 tbsp of coarse ground coffee to 700 grams of water.
Always Fair Trade | Always Organic
Fair Trade certified coffee ensures the origin of a product. Farmers that grow Fair Trade coffee receive a fair price, and their local community benefits as well.
Non-organic coffees contain residues from chemical fertilizers and pesticides. In some cases, these enter the middle of the bean and can even remain trapped inside throughout the roasting process. Try a cup of Wild Coffee and you can literally feel the difference!
Helping Others With A Fair (Trade) Choice
Fair Trade is a way to make a conscious choice for a better world. The concepts are based on the idea that the products we buy and sell are connected to the livelihoods of others.
Earnings should fulfill basic household needs, regardless of volatile market prices. Workers who are employed on Fairtrade certified plantations highly value the education, better housing, better schools, and medical facilities provided.
Why Drink Organic Wild Coffee?
Besides that it tastes completely amazing... Wild Coffee has been tediously selected and always freshly roasted to guarantee a brew that not only satisfies your refined palate, but has been grown, harvested, and processed with care. Care for the land it was grown on, care for the farmers tending to the crops, and care for you in every savory sip.
Do you find yourself going to bed each night already dreaming of your next morning's brew? You're not the only one. Worldwide, we drink over 500 billion cups of coffee each year.
Let's not forget about drinking enough water everyday... Water is actually the only beverage that is more popular than coffee. Plus, (shout out to water,) we need that precious liquid to brew up our beautiful beans!
Wild Coffee FAQ's
Keep it stored away from light and heat in an air tight container. Don't refrigerate your beans and only freeze your beans if you don't plan on using them soon. Then make sure you triple wrap them.
The darker the roast, the more you will see the shiny coffee oils on the exterior of the beans. This is a sign of freshness as most mass-produced coffee, because it is stale, does not have these yummy coffee oils still on the beans because they have dried out. The more you roast a coffee bean, the more you draw out the coffee oils that are inside the bean. Lighter roasts still have the oils inside the beans, which makes them look "dry," while the darker roasts will shimmer with wonderful shiny coffee oils on their exterior.
We don't... in a lab, that is. Our beans are fresh roasted locally in Austin, Texas. They are Organic, Fair trade and single-origin. They are also mostly wet processed (Sidamo is dry process on raised beds). In our extensive human tests, mold or toxins have never been an issue with our beans. Even when we've tested consuming beans that were stored for 2 months in the cabinet!
Yea... we've struggled with this one. Our roaster has started roasting Peru Light closer to a medium because we have found that it just tastes so much better and brings out so much more of the delicious characteristics of the Peru bean.
We are actually on the hunt to find a really great bean to light roast. Until then, Peru Light is more like "Peru Light Medium."
All Wild Coffee and Wild Cold Brew products are fresh roasted each Monday morning. We pick them up from the roaster Wednesdays (this gives the coffee a day to "rest" as it needs to) and send out packages that afternoon and Thursday!
Yes, but not coffee products. Because freshness is an issue, we don't ship Wild Coffee or Wild Cold Brew outside of the US.
