Bonanza x ONIBUS: June 2019

Everything you need to know about June’s Espresso Subscription.

This month at La Marzocco Cafe in Seattle, we’re hosting our first-ever two roaster residence—Bonanza from Berlin, Germany, and ONIBUS from Tokyo, Japan. As members of the La Marzocco Home Espresso Subscription, we’re excited to bring you two exclusive coffees from across the globe.

Bonanza Coffee Roasters was opened by Yumi Choi and Kiduk Reus in Berlin back in 2006. It quickly gained popularity as one of the only specialty coffee roasters in the area at the time. Ten years later, they opened a second cafe in Kreuzberg.

ONIBUS first opened in 2012 as a cafe and roastery in Okusawa, a small residential part of Tokyo. With the coffee scene in its early stages of life in Tokyo, ONIBUS has helped spread third wave coffee throughout the city.

Together, they’ve formed an international coffee friendship over the years, culminating in a Seattle Cafe takeover—we can’t wait for you to experience it.

Familia Garcia, Brazil

Roaster: Bonanza

Origin: Brazil

Farm/Farmer/Producer: Familia Garcia (Antonio W. Garcia)

Elevation: Campos des Vertes

Process: NaturalH

Varietals: Mundo Nuevo

Familia Garcia is a joint effort from the Garcia family, owned by Antonio Wander Garcia. Antonio and his son Andre are both research agronomists and have dedicated their lives to the production of coffee. The farm is surrounded by mountains that offer uniquely high altitudes for Brazil and the trees on the farm are benefiting from this greatly. We found this coffee to be incredibly clean, with pronounced and complex fruit character, perfect for both espresso and filter.
