Our desire to source and craft the coffees we most enjoy was a driving force in creating Highwire. We set out to make the coffee we love regardless of trends. We find deep pleasure in balance. A cup of coffee that balances the signature of the farmer and the signature of the roaster is our ideal. It’s not dark and it’s not light - it’s so much more.
It’s Big. Balanced. Complete. Acidity AND body expressed in harmony with each other. Satisfaction.
Blends are often the cups of coffee we enjoy most.
We strive to create flavors in our blends that are well integrated, seamless and unlike any other coffee. As much as we enjoy and appreciate single origin coffees, blends present a cup that isn't possible with a single origin. These cups don’t occur in nature. Each is unique. Individuals with their own personality. Mythical.
Blends highlight the work of our coffee buyer and blender, Co-Founder, Eric Hashimoto. Unlike a lot of folks out there, we don’t list our blend ingredients. Not because it’s a secret (just ask us!) but because our blends are so much more than a combination of components. Eric is constantly tasting samples, tweaking components, and adjusting recipes to get the harmony in the cup he has in mind. To achieve his dream cup of coffee. We believe this results in some of the best cups out there. These are the coffees we are most proud of.
