We Move Mountains for Freshness

As Blue Bottle Perfectly Ground, this Kenya sings

“We move mountains for freshness. We reshape the entire company around the freshness of our coffee in every possible way.” 

– Charlie, Green Coffee Buyer

Seeking deliciousness is Charlie Habegger's specialty, but discovering the world's most enticing coffees is just one aspect of his job. As a crucial component of coffee flavor, freshness is something we take very seriously, which is why we went the extra mile (give or take ten thousand) to ensure that Charlie's most recent discovery—the remarkable Kenya Nyeri Gichathaini—makes it to our guests at peak flavor. 

Harvested and air shipped from Nairobi before it can lose a molecule of that flavor, Kenya Nyeri Gichathaini is one of many delicious single origins to be available as Blue Bottle Perfectly Ground—the freshest and most finely tuned expression of this astoundingly beautiful limited release to be found. With our custom technology, we've frozen time on this ground coffee's freshness; with its precisely calibrated grind settings and doses, you have even more control over your brew.

 Go behind the scenes with Charlie to learn more about this fascinating process.
