Canyon Coffee is the passion project of model-musician couple Ally Walsh and Casey Wojtalewicz. Their aesthetic (and flavor profile) evokes the beauty and warmth of daily life in the canyons; the gold line on their simple packaging is inspired by a winding canyon road. Their first bean, Chochajau, is an organic, medium roast from Guatemala with low acidity and a rich, smooth, almond-and-chocolate-y body. You can buy individual bags online or from Canyon Coffee's stockists, or sign up for a delivery service that drops beans at your door every month or every 2 weeks, depending how thirsty you are.
$16 per bag
