Over 600 producers contribute cherries to the factory in Kahete, where they’re double washed and dried for up to 15 days. The resulting coffee is vibrant at every stage of the brewing process, from the sugary fragrance of the beans to the juicy fruits emerging in the cup. We tasted rhubarb, brown sugar, papaya, and hibiscus, with a juicy grapefruit acidity and a silky-clean body.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn't want to do it.

Little Wolf Coffee began roasting in 2016 in the small town of Ipswich, MA, naming their business after their Siberian Husky. They operate on a philosophy of high quality sourcing, careful roasting, and the belief that a cup of coffee is only as good as the company you share it with.
We use an Orea pour-over brewed with a 1:17 ratio in about 3:30 minutes. For espresso we recommend 18 grams in and 45 grams out in about 31 seconds.
