El Pilon

One of our favorite coffees of the year is back at Brown for a very limited time. Plush. Sweet plum juiciness. Dried strawberry sweetness. Madeira wine. Clean, tea-like. A coffee many people say stays in their memories. Available by the cup or in 7 oz tins.

This is what perfectly cared for coffee cherries look like as they're dried in the Costa Rica sun. Carefully and tirelessly turned by hand to eliminate taints and moldy characteristics in the cup. The result is stunningly sweet and clean fruit in the cup that causes so many people to ponder, "Is this coffee?"

ROUND ONE: May 15-18. Sold out in one day.

ROUND TWO: May 22-24....? Available at both Brown cafes from Friday morning, 22 May until it's gone. 

You don't want to miss your chance at this beautiful coffee.

We Are Brown Coffee Company

Recently we had the honor of working with our good friends Lee and Liz from 8586 Video Productions to produce a brief introduction of Brown Coffee Company to the world. Even though we're now in our tenth (!) year of operations, sometimes it's good to re-tell your own story. 

The Brown Coffee Company is San Antonio's first and favorite craft coffee company directly sourcing, roasting and purveying coffees it purchases straight from coffee producers around the world.  We value the direct-to-the-source relationships we've built over the years as we travel the world in search of stunningly delicious coffees, and we do our best to stay true to the farmer's intent by roasting everything in-house to sweet, clean perfection.  We invite you to experience next-level, world-class coffee + espresso beverages, built by hospitable, knowledgeable baristas who take their craft and your coffee experience seriously.  We love doing what we do, and we warmly invite you in to experience it.  

But don't just take our word for it...
