Coffee Spotlight: Oakland Organic High-Altitude Andean Whole Bean Blend



Our High Altitude Andean Whole Bean Blend combines organic, fair-trade beans from Peru and Bolivia into a 100% compostable package. As the beans from each source have their own distinct characteristics, we roast them separately for optimal taste. The result is a consistently delicious cup of coffee with smooth chocolate overtones and bold earthy flavors.

Coffee Spotlight: Modern Times Guatemala Jacaltenango



These deliciously smooth beans hail from the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala in a valley surrounded by the beautiful Sierra Madre mountains. The location is not only ridiculously picturesque, but is also a prime location for growing the tastiest of tasty coffee beans.

The Jacaltenango beans are somewhat of a rarity in the region, presenting with flavors of both chocolate and deliciously juicy red and dark fruits. As the coffee cools, you'll notice the deep red and dark fruit flavors shine through, finishing with a lingering flavor of expensive dark chocolate. The rich and silky mouthfeel this coffee provides mirrors the chocolate on the palate.



About the company

The brewery was founded by the guy writing this (Jacob McKean), a beer geek, former Stone Brewing Co. employee and long-time homebrewer, along with crack team of consultants consisting of illustrious graphic designers, vicious attorneys, a slightly unhinged kombucha-obsessed real estate agent, one faraway brewing prodigy, a pricey architect, a gregarious general contractor, and (a bit later in the process) three outstanding brewers.

Today, we're distributed throughout Southern California and have a fully awesome tasting room at our brewery. You should totally come check it out.

We brewed our first batch on May 18th, 2013; our beer went on tap for the first time on June 24th 2013; and we held the soft opening for the Lomaland Fermentorium tasting room on August 9th, 2013; and our Grand Opening was September 7th, 2013.

Coffee Spotlight: Pilgrim x Casa Espresso Whole Bean Coffee



We're excited to present our very own whole bean coffee, created by Casa Espresso exclusively for Pilgrim.  Brazilian Londrina and Rwandan Karengera beans combine to create the Expedition blend - preparing your body and mind for the day's expedition. Roasting the coffee by hand allows fantastic flavours and nuances to be pulled out and refined, building a profile that is unique to the coffee’s origins and terroir. Our expedition blend has notes of cocoa, raisins and raspberries, a big body, syrupy mouthfeel, and a refreshing acidity to get the cogs turning. (The coffee is whole bean so will need to be ground before brewing.)



About the company

Pilgrim celebrates the soulful side of cycling: time spent with your mates on everyday adventures. I reckon it’s all about what’s over the next hill, not how fast you can get there. If you feel the same way, you’ll love the first collection.

In august 2014 I launched a kickstarter campaign to print some t-shirt designs and with the help of a load of generous backers i raised enough money to print my first batch. Pilgrim was born.

To bring the Pilgrim philosophy to life, I’ve collaborated with 3 very talented illustrators who have each put their own spin on the brief of ‘Everyday Adventures’. I hope you enjoy the gear, and keep a look out for new releases coming soon!
