Coffee with a Spieth-y twist
Colonial fans start their morning with a cup of Cosecha Del Sur.
One of the many perks of having poolside access at this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial is starting the day with a potentially life-changing cup of coffee from Cosecha Del Sur.

The Fort Worth-based company, which sources and roasts beans from small farms across Latin America, has a tasty little connection to golf and Colonial, too.

It’s founder, Charlie Stephens, is related (sort of) to golf superstar and 2016 Colonial champion Jordan Spieth. Stephens is married to the sister of Jordan’s wife, Annie, who was sipping some Cosecha Del Sur cold brew on the course while watching her husband play Saturday.

The Cosecha Del Sur beans are sourced in Latin America and roasted in Fort Worth at a facility a few miles north of Colonial.

Stephens travels to small farms in Guatemala, Colombia, and other Latin American countries and gets to know the farmers and their product. In fact, he hatched the idea for Cosecha Del Sur (Spanish for Southern Harvest) after having what he called a “life-changing” cup of coffee at a farm in Valle del Cauca, Colombia.

Since then, he’s built relationships with farmers in Peru, Nicaragua, Mexico, El Savador, and Panama, and he’s committed to showcasing their work with each bag of beans the company sells on its website and coffee they serve at pop-up events around Dallas-Fort Worth.

​​​​​​​And don’t worry if you didn’t have access to the poolside set up at Colonial this week. You can snag a bag of Cosecha Del Sur coffee on the company’s website, where it runs about $18 for 12-ounce size. Or you can find it at a few Fort Worth locations, including Roy Pope Grocery, just off Camp Bowie Boulevard. If you stop in there, tell ’em Jordan sent you!
