Guatemala is legendary for its coffee, which is why we spent a great deal of time selecting this coffee as one of our early projects. We wanted to find a bean that we can offer consistently year after year, as part of our Regional Single Origin series. We were also aiming to offer this one as a Single Varietal, meaning this coffee grows on one specific variety of coffee plant only. In this case we chose the legendary O.G. of coffee varietals called Bourbon. Restless Soul is a high end, but price conscious offering, with a perennial place on our coffee roster.
There is a long story behind this coffee and it has taken on many personalities through dozens of roasting sessions. It hails from Antigua, the oldest region in the country. Three gigantic volcanoes loom in the surrounding mountains. The soils in this region are amazing to say the least. We like to stay flexible roast wise with this coffee as it can be wonderfully nuanced, changes over time, and has a lot to offer note wise. We have found it to like a longer development time so we typically settle on taking this bean well beyond first crack into Full City territory. A bit darker than our typical Medium roast.

So this is what we do. Better yet, it's one of the many things we do. We work hard, we roast, we create, we play, we talk, we taste, we love, and we take time to appreciate the important things in life. People, community, nature, wisdom... Coffee makes our experiences better. We started Wisecrack Roasting Company because it's a pursuit that checks all the boxes for us. If we have to sum it up, our story is a curiosity voyage. One that is infinite. We create and sell products that align with our intentions and our values. We look forward to the excitement of each new #slowmorning, and that amazing cup of coffee that awaits us. We work to support, educate, and foster awareness for the resources, causes, and curiosities that fuel our passion for living. We think globally about the people who help make these incredible products available to us every day. Your support of specialty coffee helps celebrate the commitment, sacrifice, and hard work of the many, dedicated small farmers and supply chain folk that make really good coffee possible.
