Limited release coffee are Special. We might not get this coffee ever again. Or they could be from Microlots. Microlots are considered best-in-show coffees, come in limited quantities. They are sourced from innovative producers in innovative ways, from super high-end limited-edition lots to cupping competitions and auction lots, to variety-specific separations and those coffees that are traceable down to an individual producer. Farmers are paid quality premiums for any microlot coffee, which reflects the extra planning, effort, labor, and attention to detail required to produce them, as well as rewarding the ultimate job well done.
