The name Milwaukee is taken from the Algonquian word Millioke, which translates to “The Good Land.” Seeing the beauty of Milwaukee and recognizing how incredible of a natural resource Lake Michigan is, the Algonquian peoples decided to make the Good Land their home while paying its resources with the utmost respect. Although many of these peoples were eventually forced from their land during expansionism, we remember and celebrate their rich heritage and presence which made our city possible. In a cup of The Good Land, you’ll experience subtle floral aromatics and taste the sweetness of cocoa paired with stone fruit and citrus.
The lot used in The Good Land was sourced directly from Luisa Rodriguez Aguilar of San Ignacio in Northern Peru with the help of Red Fox Coffee. Luisa is a member of the Cooperative, Alto San Ignacio. Alto San Ignacio was formed in 2015 by a group of producers who were looking to simplify their logistics and increase profit margins–and together, they’ve done just that. The members of the co-op warehouse their coffees together in Calabozo. This particular lot of coffee has Caturra and Pache varieties, and was grown between 1550-2000 masl. After it was picked, the cherries were processed using a washed method.
Celebrate The Good Land and drink some today!
