El Rincon

El Rincon is a perfect example of the "gestalt effect" that occurs when multiple lots of coffee from the same community of producers are carefully selected and presented together as a regional blend. In 2017, then-Collaborative Coffee Source buyer David Stallings and San Vicente exporter Benjamin Paz created a regional blend from small farms whose coffees were really good but didn't quite qualify as a microlot. The idea was to financially support producers until they can earn highest premiums - or yield enough coffee per estate to sell alone - at which point their coffees are graduated from the blend and a new farmer can join it. This is a long-term regional strategy for growth and sustainability that Small Planes is thrilled to support again in its fourth year.

As with other RISE series coffees, El Rincon’s components were selected to be sweet, clean, and a little rich. Once again, this coffee is malt chocolatey, nutty and 100% ready for your latte. The acidity is gentle, forming a super sweet black cherry, cooked plum melody that sings over the dark chocolate beat. Think: Black Forest gateau. Think: soda counter chocolate malted with a cherry swirl. Think: yes, please.
