Bundle-Description:  


In brief terms, coffee processing is the method used to remove the fruit from the bean. The way coffee is processed is essential to the overall flavor profile and is vital to a great cup of coffee. This sampler pack will allow you to discover the distinctions between the three main processing methods: Washed (Wet-Processed), Natural (Dry-Processed), Honey (Semi-Washed/Pulped Natural), and Funky process. 

Washed: The pulp of the bean is completely removed before it is dried. The taste is bright, clean, and will involve more of the flavors unique to the beans' origin.

Natural: The beans are dried with the pulp and skin still attached. Since the fruit has ample time to seep into the bean, this process will produce a very rich and fruit-forward cup. 

Honey: This process is very similar to natural processed coffee, except the skin is removed before it is dried. This hybrid process creates a very syrupy body with a distinct sweetness. It is not as fruity as a natural coffee, but more complex than a washed bean. 

Funky: The funky processing method is a new and unheard-of twist to the classic and well-known methods of coffee processing, using fermentation to give a rare taste. The process was named ‘Funky’ by Stephen Leighton and has been referred to that ever since.


Coffees Included: 


Guatemala Las Plantas Black Label (Washed):

This Black Label coffee is an example of the excellence that can come from this country. The beans are pleasantly creamy with a distinct caramel undertone. A hint of floral green tea and strawberry sweetness lingers on the tongue after your last sip. This coffee is interesting and complex while still being down to earth and widely appealing. It is quickly becoming a new favorite here at Sagebrush and we believe it will become a prized bean in your pantry too!

Colombia Manos Juntas Natural (Natural):

Colombian beans are always smooth, yet complex coffees. When we tasted this dry-processed bean for the first time we were amazed at how juicy and sweet it tasted. We discovered a subtle citrus acidity that adds uniqueness to the coffee. Along with the citrusy brightness, this coffee is beautifully balanced with the creamy, chocolate richness that pushes through with each sip.

Costa Rica El Venado Honey Gold Label (Honey):

Like many Costa Rican beans, this coffee is rich, smooth, and carries a bright acidity. This one has the typical chocolate richness you would expect, but with a deeper fruited complexity. Perhaps like a dry merlot. It brews a rich cup with a sweet and creamy mouthfeel. If you're looking for a Latin American espresso, you've come to the right place.

Since our inception, fast free shipping has been one of our tenants as a company.  So it took a long time for me to come to a decision to eliminate the free portion of that sentence.  I know we all want free, so taking that away is putting a lot of trust in you guys to be able to understand my reasoning and trust my math.  I'm going to list a few reasons I moved away from the free shipping model all-together below.  I'd love to hear from you if you think this is a bad decision or if you appreciate me putting the shipping cost decisions in your hands.

Our Latest Analysis of April - July 2020 Deliveries Shows:

USPS:  Average Delivery is about 4 days, ~2% are taking longer than 9 days

FedEx: Average Delivery is about 3.25 days, 0.5% are taking longer than 7 days

Free is Never Really Free

Full disclosure, free shipping isn't really free shipping.  I am paying to ship you your coffee, so you're either paying for it buried in the price of the coffee beans or at the end at checkout.  I think the psychology of free shipping is that you don't end up at the checkout and find out that you need to spend another 30% to get your items.  That's a very real thing and I hope to have a simple pricing model to help you avoid that sticker shock.  Before I get there, let me tell you what I used to do.  It used to cost me about $9.00 to ship 5lbs of coffee (USPS just raised their prices...again).  So what I did was add $1.80 to each pound as I calculated the selling price.  I then had $5 shipping for under $35 orders to try to drive the customer (you) to buy about 5lbs of coffee and make the math work.

There have been several flaws with this model.  First off, it made the cost per lb look like we're WAY more expensive than other green coffee resellers in the market.  Second, it really stops working when someone orders less than 5lbs and more than 5lbs, because the cost to ship 5lbs-30lbs per pound is much less than $1.80/lb.  So it kind of narrowed our market.  Third, we have recently been able to negotiate even better rates with FedEx and blown up the $1.80/lb model.  We can now do a 2-day Padded Pak at an amazing rate and fit 10lbs in it.  THe irony of a free shipping model is that it is less transparent.  If I'm going to be completely transparent with my cost model, then you'll recognize a good deal when you see it and we're all happier.  Transparency makes the whole sales process work better.

So we now include our pricing without shipping and add it on at the end.  To help you optimize your buying experience our shipping pricing is listed below.
