"Sample Coffee is a deliberately small business that believes in the power of little things making a big impact.
Thinking about tomorrow’s coffee ritual makes us just as excited as a kid before a school trip. And we acknowledge that this feeling is only made possible by the dedication of many individuals. From the grower back at origin to the roaster here at home; every tiny part counts.
Our daily work focuses on offering a consistently high-quality coffee experience in balance with a responsible business practice based on respect, generosity and joy. We do this by being present, paying attention to the small details and investing in long-term relationships with those who also care about their communities and lands.
From little things, big things grow.
Today we are featuring 4 coffees from Sample. They’re two delicious blends and two small crop singles. Read about them below."

" The northern region of Cajamarca in Peru is known for its production of quality coffee, natural reserves and water sources. In this area, near the town of Jaen, we meet Eleuterio Quispe Perez and his wife Juana Diaz Zamora, at their farm El Palmo. It is named after an old and big palm tree located in the middle of the terrain. Eleuterio has been involved with coffee for 47 years, almost a lifetime, and it all started when his father motivated him to begin his own coffee production. He saw that the profitability of other crops wasn’t as good as coffee and so decided to start producing coffee. Over these years, coffee has been his main economic income and with which he has been able to sustain his family. Also, in his spare time, he does some woodworking. After forty years, Eleuterio decided to switch to specialty looking for quality and better prices. This change has brought improvements in his family’s quality of life and he has been able to pay for the education of his kids, which brings him a lot of joy. As per his current challenges, they are to improve the quality of his coffee and learn more about processing. He wants to improve his wet mill area to achieve better coffee and make some improvements to his house."
