Washed Tabi ¹
El Rosario, San Agustin, Huila, Colombia ²

Jhon Jairo, or “J.J.” as we call him, grows red Tabi on his tiny farm high in the mountains of El Rosario, Huila. We've been working with him directly since 2020 when we bought his entire production — just one year after his coffee was first even tasted. J.J.'s washed Tabi is one of the coffees we look forward to the most. For one, his coffee is complex and entirely unique with notes of nectarine, watermelon and starfruit. What gets us even more excited is to see how J.J.’s passion, pride and commitment to coffee have helped him and fellow producers in Huila. He's built a community around Monkaaba and is now generating a salary from working as a member of the Semilla & Monkaaba team.

We Support


Relationships with coffee producers that work towards autonomy and agency as they gain access to the specialty market.

Not That

Overlooking the needs of coffee producers in the race for the “best” cup.

Meet Jhon Jairo

33-year-old Jhon Jairo lives on his tiny farm high in the mountains of El Rosario, Huila where he grows red Tabi. He was raised growing long beans, but the heavy chemicals used in their production has had detrimental effects on his health, leading to his desire to transition to coffee.

Jhon Jairo is part of Monkaaba, a local producer-led training and support organization. With the help of Esnaider Ortega-Gomez and Monkaaba, we were able to be the first buyers of Jhon's coffee internationally in 2020, taking it out of the hands of low paying intermediaries.



The P.S. Coffee menu is made possible by grower communities and smallholder farmers in Rwanda, Honduras, Colombia and Guatemala. Through our sourcing sister-company Semilla, we hold long-term and consensus based partnerships with producers that have had zero or limited access to or knowledge of the specialty market.

These skilled and passionate professionals are redefining coffee production within their growing regions that have historically been underserved and overlooked despite being within well-respected coffee producing countries. Through community support networks, access to knowledge and capital and investment into physical and intellectual infrastracture, they are transitioning towards autonomy and away from the exploitative model they’ve mostly always known.

These are the people and communities you’ll meet through P.S. — and build connections with as we continue to support and purchase from them year after year.

Meet the P.S. Producer Network


All of the coffee on the P.S. menu is exclusively sourced with Semilla Coffee through the following principles:

Durable Relationships

All of Semilla’s relationships are formed with specific communities in underserved coffee growing regions within well-respected coffee production countries. Semilla identifies producer groups that have zero or limited access to or knowledge of the specialty market and takes on the requisite risk that comes with their transition into becoming specialty coffee producers with dedicated buyers across North America. Semilla’s commitment is to work only within the bounds of these groups, seeking to grow with them in pursuit of purchasing all of their production, year after year.

Best Prices, Defined by Producers

All coffees purchased by Semilla are purchased at the best locally available price. This is determined via communication with and understanding of local market dynamics, and prices are arrived upon via a consensus model in which the coffee growers and Semilla agree democratically on the best prices for all involved.

Traceability and Transparency 

Semilla’s commitment is to work with complete commitment to traceability and transparency along the value chain. This means full transparency of prices paid to the farmer (farmgate) as well as prices paid at port (FOB). Additionally, Semilla offers in depth information and context for each coffee, the producers who grew it, and the condition within which they work with each purchase. 


Semilla exclusively works in the specialty coffee realm, meaning all of the coffees purchase are above the quality levels offered  by conventional commodity or Fair Trade and Organic buyers. Quality is determined in reference to the Specialty Coffee Association and Coffee Quality Institute’s grading standards, with all coffees source for P.S. achieving a minimum of 85 points out of a possible 100. 


We are skeptic of most fair trade/organic/sustainability certifications. They often leave the financial burden on coffee producers who are, and let's be honest, not polluting anywhere near us folks in the Global North are.

Instead of focusing on these certification, we work towards a value system that uplifts everyone along the coffee supply chain. Through Semilla, our sourcing sister-company, we can connect directly with our coffee producer network to bring to life their ideas that come from, and work for, them towards a more sustainable, equitable value chain.
