WHAT: Beginning December 18, 2014, Nobletree proudly debuts its bespoke portfolio of coffee expressions and curated coffee subscriptions available online. Custodians of the coffee from start to finish, Nobletree’s team of farmers, roasters, and baristas have a hand in each step of the coffee’s journey from seed to sip, with proprietary coffee farms and milling in Brazil, and a roastery in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Along with the two expressions sourced directly from the brand’s proprietary farms, Nobletree’s team of experts round out the worldly, aromatic collection with beans hand-picked from family farms including Kenya, Ethiopia, and Honduras, in addition to other notable coffee producing countries.
The collection of ready to brew beans features a diverse portfolio of flavor profiles, offered in 12oz or 5lbs bags. Coffees include:
Expression Varietal Farm, Origin Flavor Notes
Dromadaire Cuvée Yellow Catuai, Acaia Fazenda Monte Verde, Brazil Chocolate, Hazelnut, Pear
Reverence Espresso Yellow Catuai, Acaia Fazenda Monte Verde, Brazil Dark Chocolate, Marzipan Truffle

Kicking off the coffee subscriptions with the “Roaster’s Pick”, Nobletree picks a rotating selection of favorites to give recipients something new to discover with each delivery.
Upcoming subscriptions will be available in January 2015, including “Our Farm”, based on Nobletree’s Santa Izabel and Monte Verde farms in Brazil’s Sul de Minas. The Monte Verde farm earned recognition as a Brazil Cup of Excellence finalist in 2012 and 2013, and grows six coffee cultivars, with more than a third of the fields dedicated to the distinctive “Yellow Bourbon” coffee tree.
For the “Continental Package”, Nobletree curates a subscription based on the coffees sourced from a specific area, highlighting the best beans from the continent.
WHY: The first vertically integrated coffee brand in New York, Nobletree delivers a spectrum of the most highly regarded coffee beans in the world, including two expressions sourced from its proprietary farms. CEO John Moore and his expert team, including four licensed “Q” Graders and three Cup of Excellence Jury Members, seek out beans from around the globe to deliver a dynamic portfolio for consumers to enjoy. From the farm, Nobletree oversees a pioneering business model which controls the journey of over 500,000 lbs. pounds of coffee per year, following a bean from its growing conditions, harvesting, and milling in Brazil, to its roasting and distribution in Brooklyn, NY. Nobletree’s own roastery in Red Hook, Brooklyn will be complete in March 2015.
