Our building was originally built by Bemis and Call Hardware Tool Company in the late 1800's. Their main patent and manufactured product was the Monkey Wrench. Springfield is home to many great inventions, but not many people know that it's also the birthplace of the monkey wrench. Inside the Monkey Wrench Building is a group of tenants that are all working hard in their own skill-sets. You can find artists, skilled craftsmen, entrepreneurs, nonprofits and so much more. We picked a great coffee that is rich and full of character, just like our building. Give it a try, and better yet, come visit us, and check out our building too.

Grown off of the second highest peak of West Africa, this coffee is the same variety normally grown in Indonesia, and tastes so unique and refined compared to them too. With farms ranging from 1/4 to 3 hectares in size, it really is a small community coffee. Flowers from the shrubs are pollinated by honey bees, and shade grown underneath orange and banana trees. The main variety grown in the Oku Valley was reportedly brought from Jamaica over 70 years ago. It is now grown alongside a more vibrant variety called Java brought from the province of Java in Indonesia. This gives it a rich and smooth characteristic often found in Kona or Jamaica Blue Mountain coffees.

These beans are part of a farmer field school model, and is produced by 450 farmers broken into twelve groups. Our Importer works directly with these farmers to help revitalize the coffee industry within the region. The goal is to help create higher yields, and increase the quality of the product year by year. We think this coffee is truly great and you will too!
