12 Months of the
finest coffee in the world
“Project Echelon” by Onyx Coffee Lab invites you to enter a world where you can fully experience the best and most award winning coffees. Curated with unique, rare cultivars, world famous agronomy experiments and competition winning coffees, this program partners with Cup of Excellence winners, leading coffee auctions, famed coffee farmers, and experimental university agronomy projects all in the pursuit of finding the best, most interesting coffees in the world.
As a full member you will be provided with every piece of equipment and aspect of brewing even down to the water chemistry. We’ve taken the guess work out of the brewing by offering individual extraction guides for each coffee by the US Brewer’s Cup Champion using the exact equipment you’ll be supplied with. No longer will you spend 100s on the latest Gesha only to use half of the coffee dialing in your grinder or guessing at the water temperature.
The full Echelon Membership is limited to the first twenty-five to sign up within the United States at this time. We are expanding the 2023 program to offer an Echelon coffee only option, and this is limited to the first one-hundred to sign up within the United States. This is a very exclusive and limited project due to the fact that sourcing these rare coffees is an arduous and extremely delicate process. Once discovered, the volume of these high scoring nano-lots are extremely small and must go through rigorous testing and profiling before making it into the program.
This project has been the brain child of the Onyx team, barista competitors, brewing equipment manufacturers and coffee producers from around the globe. To say we are excited is an understatement, but we are very proud of the project and invite you to participate. For those that enjoyed the membership, a special legacy price will be available next year to continue the shipment of coffees, and obviously the equipment is yours to keep once you apply. Thank you and read below for details.
