New Limited Offering: Reserve Coffees
Every so often our roaster comes up with a coffee that rates high enough-- and is of such limited availability-- that they present it as a special reserve offering. These coffees are often only available in lots of hundreds of pounds (as opposed to the tons of more traditional lots of coffee), and are highly sought after at auction. It can be daunting to purchase these coffees at retail: they can cost well upward of $20 a pound (not counting shipping), and are often sold out as quickly as they are made available. Volta is pleased to be able to offer two of these rare coffees, beginning Memorial Day weekend. Supplies are extremely limited, so come by the shop soon if you want to try one of these reserve coffees.
Los Inmortales, El Salvador Finca Matalapa
El Salvador Matalapa has been the best-selling coffee that we've had in stock for the last two weeks. The Inmortales variation is a micro-lot selection that represents the highest grade of coffee from this season's harvest at the Finca Matalapa. Los Inmortales is only roasted in small batches, once a week, at Intelligentsia's Chicago roasting facility. Full of grace and nuance, the Finca Matalapa Micro-Lot introduces itself with delicate floral aromatics. The juicy citrus acidity sits aside notes of sweet apple and white grape as the body glides like silk into a finish of cane sugar and vanilla. We are offering Los Inmortales for $3.50 per cup.
Fazenda do Sertão, Brazil
A pulped natural from the Carmo de Minas growing region, Fazendo do Sertão lends itself to an atypical complexity that wins the hearts of washed coffee lovers. The body is smooth and silky as notes of caramel and toffee wash across the palate. The acidity is subtle but worth noting with its Clementine orange juiciness and dried mango fruit tang. Leading into the buttery finish are nuances of cardamom and honey as the end note of Dutch chocolate plays pleasantly on the tongue. We are offering Fazenda do Sertã for $3.25 per cup.
