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.

    These are my favorite beans from Partners roasters so far. The beans smell amazing when you open the bag. The coffee flavor is very balanced in terms of the fruitiness and the sweetness of the coffee. I live in California and have these shipped from the east coast. Worth the wait.

    really versatile blend

    While Partners labels this blend as "Espresso" I've had great success brewing this on an auto drip brewer and V60. Great alt to a more expensive single origin if you're either buying in bulk or looking for a some more acidity than a traditional medium/dark roast
