Steady Habits House Blend


Our signature house offering blends coffees from Colombia, Guatemala, and Mexico in a medium-light roast for an easy-to-drink, everyday coffee. We chose the name Steady Habits, an unofficial moniker for our home state of Connecticut, to reflect this coffee’s reliability and approachability for all coffee drinkers.

We are currently tasting notes of caramel, fig, and roasted nuts in Steady Habits.


What's in Steady Habits?

In our Steady Habits blend, this Colombian coffee is responsible for the sweet, fruit-like notes you taste. It also complements the other coffees in this blend with some citric and lightly acidic notes of tangerine and pineapple.

Finca Palmichal is high on the western side of the Central Andes mountain range, near the municipality of Genova, in the department of Quindío. This region went through violent and difficult times during the peak of the guerrilla expansion in the country. But now, after the negotiation between the government and the FARC, there is hope among these communities for many safe and happy years to come.

Producer Atilano Giraldo is the third generation of his family to grow coffee in Quindío, and he grew up working in coffee alongside his father. Gradually, he acquired additional properties, including Finca Palmichal, which he bought from the local Osorio family.

Recently, after years of hard work, and in order to help the development of his region, Don Atilano ran and was elected as a senator in the Colombian parliament representing Quindío.

Coffee from Huehuetenango (pronounced way-way-ten-AN-go) is known for its complexity and toffee-like sweetness, and this one is no exception. This particular selection is sweet and mild, with notes of toffee and coffee cherry balancing perfectly with the tart acidity throughout its counterparts.

A large percentage of Guatemala’s population, and therefore also the coffee sector, identifies with one of more than 20 officially recognized indigenous groups, and most of the farmers are smallholders who are either working independently of one another, loosely associated by proximity and cultural ties, or formally affiliated in cooperative associations.

In 1960, coffee growers developed their own union, which has since become the national coffee institute Anacafé (Asosiación Nacional del Café), which is a research center, marketing agent, and financial organization that provides loans and offers support to growers throughout the various regions.

In the Maya Q'qnjobal dialect from Huehuetenango, waykan means "star (or light) that shines in the sky at night."

Varieties: Bourbon, Typica, Mundo Novo
