A sweet, sustainably sourced single-origin coffee, designed to be brewed any way you want to!

About Ace:

Ace is Ritual’s first true single-origin “Omni-roast.”

What’s that, you ask?

Well, historically we have developed roast profiles (let’s call them recipes) for each of our individual single-origin coffees based on the brew method associated with them, with most of the coffees geared toward filter roasts in our unique, lightly roasted, “let’s not get in the way of a good green coffee” style.

This means most of our coffees are roasted specifically for drip or pour-over brewing methods- with the notable exception of our seasonal espresso blend and our “Sweet Tooth” line of single-origin espresso. These coffees are expressly earmarked and developed for espresso preparation (pressurized hot water forced through the grounds.)

Being vastly different methods to prepare coffee, we haven’t been able to offer a single farm coffee that would perform amazingly as both a filter roast and an exceptional espresso – until now.

The lighter roasting style we’re known for often requires more care and precision during the brewing process, but we also realize that not everyone always has the time for that. This offering can be trusted to perform admirably no matter the method or level of precision – whether a scale or a scoop, you really can’t lose.

The current Ace offering is: Los Anonos, Costa Rica

Tastes like: green apple, grape, dark caramel

About Los Anonos:

Marvin Rodriguez, along with his brother Felipe, and their partner Ricardo Perez, co-own the famed West Valley mill, Helsar de Zarcero. All three producers are champions of sustainable coffee growing practices, pioneering modern techniques that yield excellent results. This lot of Caturra from Los Anonos was grown at elevations around 1750 MASL. The coffee is carefully harvested by hand, with excellent attention being paid to ripeness. The fruit is then brought to Helsar to be processed. It is mechanically washed using an aquapulper before being laid out to dry on covered raised beds.
