Forward Five Sept 15

Hi there. Thanks for circling back.

I'm trying to figure out how to upload a recording that speaks to each of the coffees. I'm not overly tech savvy and I'm not connected to consistent wifi at the moment. 

Currently I'm writing from Penticton, British Columbia. I've driven 1400kms since writing the message below and shipping out your Five Pack. I've been brewing the Five as I drive in my camper van and sharing them with nice roasters along the way. 

For me, it's been fascinating to hear dialogue surrounding the Five and experiences surrounding the individual exploration. These coffees are a very diverse Five. They're close together yet very far apart. All Five coffees are from Central America and they span two countries, Panama and Mexico. These coffees were selected as the Original Five showcasing producers that demonstrate a standard of excellence within the industry, motivating and inspiring us at Forward.

1 - Finca Deborah Natural Yeast Process Geisha, 'Limitless'

2 - Savage Coffee Washed Carbonic Maceration Geisha 'Iridescence'

3 - Creativa Coffea District Natural 'Static Cherry' Pacamara

4 - Samuel Ronzon Natural Experimental Red Bourbon + Typica lot 19a

5 - Samuel Ronzon Natural Experimental Red Bourbon + Typica lot 19b


Stay tuned for a link to the recording of these coffees. 

// Sept 15.

Hi there.

If you're reading this, it means you're part of the first Forward Five and you've now received your package.

I bet you're wondering what's in your Five pack and that's why you're here.

I'm sorry to say, I'm not quite ready to tell you yet. I'd love to hear if you've formulated guesses - all five of these coffees are listed here on the webshop.

There's some packs that haven't landed yet and I think it's best if everyone gets the same experience. So check back on Sept 30 for the full list of coffees. Otherwise, check out @fwdcoffee on Instagram where I'll be sharing brews and views.

Yes, views and brews. For the next month, I'll be driving from my home in Calgary to Vancouver Island and visiting as many little roasters as I can on the journey. I'll have a van packed with my partner, our dog an Ikawa, a sweet brewing set up and a bin of coffees that'll make your mouth water. I'll have the Five coffees from this pack with me and I'll do my best to share them on social :)

Cheers and happy brewing folks. 

Thanks for supporting the Forward Five.
