Simply put, the premise of Golden Ticket is to combine coffees of high character and great deliciousness in such a way that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. This essentially allows us to celebrate more of our favourite coffees (that additionally may have a small lot size), finds a nice middle point between “single” and “blend”, and sets us a great Quality Control challenge to make an interesting and different product to Candyman that fluctuates more over time, as the components change more frequently.
Just to re-state this: Golden Ticket will have has less focus on consistency of flavours per se, and more on short run, special with high character.
The espresso version also has the requirement to have great presence in milk.
Javier Martinez: We paid 1400 Quetzales per quintal (100 pounds of parchment) for Javier's coffee. At times throughout harvest, the local rate was around 650Q/quintal, this at a time where cost of production is 700-800Q/quintal. We’ve been loving working with Javier since 2017.
