Discover the Secrets Behind Coffee on Mars
We're Coffee on Mars, located in the charming town of San Rafael, California. Our earthly location is the launch pad for a cosmic journey that takes you to Mars and back, one cup at a time.
Women-Owned, Single-Family Farm: Our Source
At the heart of our coffee journey is a unique partnership with a women-owned, single-family farm in San Ignacio, Cajamarca, Peru. Discover the secrets behind Coffee on Mars.
This relationship is not just a business agreement but a union of values—responsible sourcing and a dedication to quality. Our strong collaboration with this farm allows us to offer a unique coffee experience. It’s not just about the coffee; it’s about bridging worlds and making a difference—one cup and one farm at a time.
Harvest Time: July to September
Our harvest season runs from July through September. During these months, the coffee cherries reach their peak ripeness, leading to beans that offer a cup of coffee.
Beans are meticulously picked at altitudes ranging from 1600 to 2100 meters above sea level. This high-altitude growth imparts the unique flavors you’ve come to love from Coffee on Mars.
Soil and Organics: Where Earthly Excellence Begins
Our coffee plants grow in soil rich in clay minerals, offering an ideal setting for coffee cultivation. This soil enriches the coffee with its distinct flavors and attributes.
We take immense pride in our commitment to 100% organic farming. No synthetic pesticides or fertilizers are used at any stage of our production, ensuring both a cleaner product and a healthier planet.
The Process: Water-Washed and Sun-Dried
We employ the water-washed method to process our coffee beans. This involves immersing the coffee cherries in water to remove the mucilage before drying, which results in a cleaner, more vibrant flavor profile.
The drying phase is just as crucial. Our beans are sun-dried, never with chemicals. This natural process enhances the beans’ inherent flavors and seals in the aromatic oils
Custom Roasting: The Medium Dark Experience
We custom roast our coffee to a medium-dark level. The roast profile brings out dark chocolate and tobacco flavors, capturing a unique blend that’s robust and intricate.
Our beans are whole Arabica beans, ensuring maximum freshness when opening a coffee bag on Mars. Your coffee experience is always top-notch, thanks to the quality of the beans we use.
Health Benefits: Beyond the Cup
- One of the lesser-known benefits of water-washed coffee is its reduced acidity, making it gentler on the stomach, especially for those sensitive to acidic foods.
- Furthermore, our water-washing process makes coffee easier to digest, thereby reducing gastrointestinal discomfort or irritation. This method also contributes to a lower mycotoxin content in our beans, reducing the risk of harmful compounds.
- Our coffee is not just good; it’s good for you. The reduced acidity and lower mycotoxin levels contribute to better nutrient absorption in your body. You’re not just enjoying a cup of coffee but investing in your overall well-being.
Flavor Profile and Varieties: A Symphony in a Cup
Lastly, our coffee’s cleaner flavor profile is the hallmark of our brand. This clarity in flavor is directly attributed to our water-washing process, enhancing your sensory experience.
We offer various beans, including Bourbon, Catimor, Caturra, Pache, and Typica. Each variety has unique characteristics, but all offer that signature Coffee on Mars experience: a cosmic journey in every cup.
As you prepare to take off on your daily cosmic journey, sipping a cup of our unique blend, remember that you are a part of something much bigger. With every cup, you’re supporting responsible farming practices, enjoying health benefits, and taking a sensory journey that’s truly out of this world.
