La Marzocco USA says
Caffe Ladro will feature a preview of their El Salvador Natamaya Microlot, a Direct Trade coffee they will be releasing later this month. Dismas Smith, Ladro’s Roaster, will offer a tasting of the coffee showcasing several roast profiles brewed across multiple brew methods, including espresso, cupping bowl, and pour-over. Come by to taste, discuss, and take home a sample of this coffee from the Mendez family’s efforts on Finca Natamaya.

Side note: for every 12 oz bag sold, they donate $1 to the Ojo de Aqua community that lives throughout the remote region surrounding the farm.


Caffe Ladro opened its first store on the top of Queen Anne hill in 1994. Today, Caffe Ladro has 14 cafes and a craft bakery.

Ladro’s recent story takes an aging retail coffee brand from buying predominantly darker roasted blends to building its own roasting and coffee education programs in 2011. Focusing on sourcing coffee, producing light roasted single origins and medium roasted blends, while providing all its baristas world-class coffee training, elevated Caffe Ladro to the forefront of Seattle’s specialty coffee scene. Ladro Roasting supplies its cafes in and near Seattle, and its wholesale partners in Seattle and across the country with coffee from its Queen Anne roaster, 70% of which it sources directly from origin.

As in the beginning, Caffe Ladro/Ladro Roasting maintains the mission of providing profound service to its customers.
