Every coffee drinker values the quality and taste of their beans, but fewer attend to where their favorite coffee beans are sourced. What many people don’t know is that bean quality is mostly determined by growing conditions; such as sunlight, rain, soil, altitude, and picking technique, which differs by location. With sustainability and environmental impact growing in popularity, it is becoming crucial for coffee companies to provide ethical sourcing information about their
products. This is why Split Rock Coffee prioritizes transparency throughout the entire coffee process, from planting the first seed to delivering coffee house flavor straight to your door.

Ethiopia is known as the birthplace of coffee and has continued to produce high quality beans throughout time, placing them near the top of coffee production. It is located in what is known as the “coffee belt” or the “bean belt”, which is a region between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn that covers the world’s best coffee growing regions. This country is most famous for its Harrar coffee, which is grown in the highlands of Eastern Ethiopia on small farms. Ethiopia has the most diversified coffee types because of their long tradition and culture surrounding coffee. For thiopians, coffee is an experience that is shared with family and friends through daily coffee ceremonies. This is a special gathering that can last several hours and is ingrained into the culture. We recognize the importance of community in the coffee experience and focus on this when crafting the perfect coffee blend. Our medium roast coffee contains Ethiopian beans in addition to Chiapas Mexican beans and Brazilian beans to create the perfect balance.

Brazil is the world’s largest coffee producer and exports a third of the world’s coffee. Not only do they have the space, but they also have the ideal growing conditions. Brazil is a large country, so climate, soil quality, and altitude determine which bean varieties will grow the best
in different regions. Brazilian coffee is known to be soft, nutty, and low in acidity with a bittersweet chocolate taste. We have blended Brazilian coffee beans into our medium roast to add notes of sweet chocolate with a dark cherry finish. Colombia is also a major producer of Arabica coffee beans, supplying 15% of the world’s coffee. The country’s climate, soil, sunlight, and rainfall provide the elements needed for superior beans that are rich in flavor. Colombian coffee farmers are known for picking their harvests by hand to sort out green beans, unripe beans, overripe beans, and the ideal coffee cherry.

This ensures that only the highest quality beans are roasted to create the perfect cup of coffee. Our light roast coffee is 100% Colombian from the Huila (Southern) region of the country and provides a balanced, rich, and bright flavor.
