As the crops change, so do the components of our Red Brick, highlighting harvest cycles and celebrating the seasonality of coffee. We've combined the great fruit qualities from each component, and allowed the sweetness to shine.

Over the last year, our focus has been on revisiting every Red Brick component and raising the bar on quality, transparency, and connection throughout our supply chain. As a result, this iteration of Red Brick brings together two new showcases, Altamira de Chirripó from Costa Rica and Farms of Atitlán from Guatemala. Delighted with the results and excited about new beginnings, we think Red Brick is better than ever!
