From the brand, ILSE: "Pastor is a 3rd generation coffee producer. His lineage goes back to some of the earliest producers in the area. Now at the age of 50, he has spent his entire life as a coffee producer, starting at the age of 18, and has established himself as a well-respected grower. We find this evident in the cup and feel truly lucky to be able to work with him. We hope to have his coffee year after year!"
"ILSE Coffee is a specialty coffee roasting company started by Rebecca Grossman and Lucas Smith. We are a small, two-person team in both business and in life! We focus on sourcing traceable coffees from small/micro producers whom we can build a relationship with and purchase from year after year. We are extremely transparent with our pricing as the most important thing for us is that the producers we are working with are paid fairly. We feature coffees that are sweet, flavorful and have a sense of origin. We roast our coffee in a way to bring out its natural beauty and truth which is a result of all the hard work done by the producer at origin."
