Coffee Specs

Named for our original Brooklyn cafe and roastery, Bedford was conceived as a modern espresso offering. With coffees from our oldest relationships in Ethiopia and Colombia, Bedford emphasizes delicious fruit flavors that still balance delightfully in milk drinks.

Suke Quto

After beginning his career in agroforestry, Tesfaye Bekele founded Suke Quto in the aftermath of a series of brushfires in the region of Guji. Seeing that locals were replanting the land with crops like corn and teff, he suggested coffee as a more sustainable alternative—a native species capable of thriving in semi-forested conditions. Seeing that farmers needed encouragement to take the risk on such a time-intensive crop, he founded Suke Quto Farm, eventually followed by a washing station and nursery. Today he is credited as one of the preeminent figures in coffee production in what is still considered to be an emerging region. 

Cuatro Vientos

Huila Department, Colombia is one of our favorite regions for volume lots. With a favorable climate and near-equatorial latitudes, Huila harvests and ships fresh, high quality coffee almost year-round. We’ve partnered here with Cuatro Vientos, a family-run exporter specializing in microlots and regional blends from farms near Acevedo, Santa María, and Algeciras.

    Delicate, Balanced, Nuanced

    Bedford is light and very balanced. It's very easy to pull a straightforward shot without any bitterness or mega acidity. That being said, it doesn't lack brightness. The one thing you might give up with Bedford is texture and depth of flavor a bit, but it's worth it for it's other qualities.

    Love the flavor

    We've been ordering every tri-weekly for the past year.

    We've tried other beans but keep coming back to this bean for its fruity yet bold flavor. Highly recommend!
