A Delicious and Consistent Offering

SKU: N/A Category: Tag:


The Modest is our flagship offering and what we like to think of as the bridge to specialty coffee. We seek out coffees that feel familiar yet taste better than traditional roasted coffees.


  • Coffee subscription billed monthly
  • Our most approachable coffees
  • Consistent flavor profiles
  • Beans change 4 or more times per year
  • Central and South American Origins
  • Allows for quality coffees to be purchased up to 250% over index
  • Roasts in the City+ through Full City+ range (Medium-Light through Medium-Dark)*
  • Free Modest Coffee tin to keep those beans fresh

*We roast our beans to preserve and compliment the flavors of origin. There will always be a bit of variety in our roasts in our continuing attempt to express the best that each bean has to offer.

“How many bags will I need per month?” By our calculations, one person who drinks one cup per day will go through about two bags per month.

Coffee Info

-Cubulco, Guatemala-

Cubulco is a newer coffee-producing region. Coffee is planted on the steep slopes of the Chuacus mountain range at altitudes of 1,600 to 1,900 meters ASL. The weather is temperate to cold at these altitudes, and rainfall is plentiful, allowing for slow maturation of cherries. Farmers in the area used to plant corn and beans, but slowly started to search for products that could help them earn a better income for their families. Coffee was th answer. Producers plant their trees in small plots, and most of the farm work is done by family members. Coffee production grew steadily, and farmers were quick to utilize our Farmer Support Organization (FSO) in the region for support as they improved their productivity, quality and resource management.
