Roaster Series

Frothy Monkey Roasting Co

Our new Roaster Series is a project dedicated to showcasing coffee producers and the innovations they’re making to drive the coffee industry forward.

We know that our affinity to try exotic and innovative coffees extends beyond the walls of our roastery and we are excited to share our discoveries with you. Our goal is to broaden the coffee horizons of both our most devoted customers and coffee lovers who are eager to try something new. This passion project will provide an opportunity for each of our coffee roasters to share a unique origin country or processing method they are pumped about while reflecting the flavor profile or story each Roaster wants to feature. Distinct coffees will be selected and roasted by one of our Coffee Roasters and released in small batches. Our hope is to release four Roaster Series coffees each year.


April 2022 Release: Ecuador Juan Peña

Juan Peña has a reputation for producing exceptional coffees, as he holds three consecutive “Sprudgie” Notable Producer awards. This natural processed Typica variety from his farm, Hacienda La Papaya in the Loja province of southern Ecuador, is no different. While just 28 acres in size, the farm benefits from high elevation and good microclimates.
This beautifully processed coffee presents incredible complexity and sweetness in the form of juicy stone fruits, and bright, sweet fruits like pear and green apple. Dark chocolate and caramel notes bring a harmonious balance to this supremely delicious cup.

Roaster Series coffees will be available in 10oz bags (whole bean) at Frothy Monkey cafes in very limited supply or order online while supplies last.

December 2021 Release: Ethiopia Wush Wush

For the coffee connoisseur who appreciates an adventurous and staggering taste profile, Wush Wush is an absolute banger. The catchy name is an homage to the Wushwush area in Southwestern Ethiopia where this heirloom variety was first discovered. This coffee is richly fruity, tremendously sweet, and deeply layered, all thanks to its unique and meticulous limited-oxygen processing method. We love its medley of sweet and tart fruits, and its silky mouthfeel and warming booziness make it a soothing treat for colder months. It’s got a lot of watermelon candy attributes, and a cup of Wush Wush will leave you satisfied with nuanced chocolate and malt undertones.

This extraordinary coffee is the fourth release in our Roaster Series, sourced and roasted by our head roaster Daniel Lopez in conjunction with Keffa Coffee Importers. Check out our Ethiopia Wush Wush blog post to learn more.

November 2021 Release: El Salvador Bernardina

Introducing our 3rd release in the Roaster Series lineup. Los Bellotos Bernardina, the most unique and exciting specialty coffee we’ve ever had the privilege to roast, is backfrom the renowned Pacas family of El Salvador. Frothy Monkey is thrilled to feature this truly unique coffee varietal two years in a row, and once again, it’s blowing our minds: delicate and effervescent, this wildly complex and beautiful brew starts with soft orange and honeysuckle overtones, then it soothes you with sweet notes of cinnamon and shortbread cookies. The lingering finish is mildly boozy, reminiscent of rich luxardo cherries.

It’s a sensational coffee experience, and one of our most exciting Roaster Series releases of the year! Read more about El Salvador Bernardina coffee here.

National Coffee Day / September 2021 Release: Colombia Diego Imbachi Gesha

The second coffee of our Roaster Series is one we couldn’t be more proud to showcase. For those familiar with Frothy Monkey, you may recall the name Carlos Imbachi, as we have featured his award-winning coffees multiple times in the past.

We are so excited to present a coffee from his son, Diego, who represents both the present and future of Colombian Specialty Coffee. This is just the 2nd lot of Gesha produced and harvested on their farm, Finca Buenavista in the Huila region of Colombia. Read more about Colombia Diego Imbachi Gesha coffee here.

June 2021 Release: Colombia Claudia Samboni

We’re kicking off our Roaster Series line with our first coffee: a Colombia Pink Bourbon sourced and roasted by our own Daniel Lopez. The Roaster Series is a project dedicated to showcasing coffee producers and the innovations they’re making to drive the coffee industry forward. Colombia has long been regarded as one of the premier coffee-growing countries in the world, and what better region to kick off our Roaster Series than a country known for its consistent quality.

This coffee was named after its producer, Claudia Samboni, whose team at Finca Las Nubes has developed a truly exquisite coffee with this Pink Bourbon. We love its lively notes of strawberry and dark chocolate, with a cherry acidity and rich body. It’s beautiful and sweet and deeply complex, and we’re so excited to be featuring it.

Roaster Series coffees will be available in 10oz bags (whole bean) at Frothy Monkey cafes in very limited supply or order online while supplies last.
