Loveless Coffees’ relationship with the Yandaro Washing Station stretches back to 2015, when they first fell in love with their jasmine and floral honey-noted coffees. Though the station’s yield has been lower this year, the quality is just as exceptional. We tasted black floral tea, sweet lemon, lingering notes of caramel and nectarine, a silky tea-like body, and a sparkling stone fruit acidity.

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.
