1 x 125 grams + 2 x 250 grams of whole roasted coffee beans, packed in a gift box with information on each coffee.
Here we present to you our roasters choice of coffee – three very different coffees. We want to show you a world of different flavors, and this is why we choose these specific coffees:
Colombia – Pablo Guerrero produces the arabica variety Geisha, and the I our second time buying coffee from him. Geisha is one of the more exclusive varieties in specialty coffee, due to its mot complex and rich flavors. We love it!
Costa Rica – An all time favorite by our roasters and baristas. This is alos the second time buying Luis Anastasio Castros harvest, and there's a reason we keep coming back to it again and again.
Colombia – We only bought a few bags of the coffee from Ricaute, as a new take on buying green coffee. We've started to buy the last "left over" bags - when other roasteries buy almost everything but leaves a few bags behind. This way we can buy smaller quantities of really good coffee and have it temporary, while making sure no coffee gets left behind!
Please read more about the coffees below!
PRODUCER: PABLO GUERRERO
Farm/washing station: El Obraje
Taste profile: Smooth and sweet with notes of jasmin, raspberry and orange marmalade
Pablo Guerrero was the first to introduce coffee to the Tangua region in Colombia, which is situated near many volcanic mountains, with a rocky soil full of minerals. We he first started, he didn ́t know how well the coffee plants would react to the high altitude, but it has shown to be very successful and now others are following his example. Pablos farm El Obraje is extremely well kept and he is constantly developing it to reach an even higher quality.
PRODUCER: LUIS ANASTASIO CASTRO
Farm/washing station: Juanachute
Origin: Costa Rica
Taste profile: Floral and sweet with notes of nectarine and rosehip
Luis Anastasio Castro, better known as Tacho, was an early adapter to the micromill model. At this micromill, the Juanachute, the entire process is controlled. From planting the coffee trees to sealing the jute bags of greenbeans, all under the supervision of DonTacho. This lot is White Honey processed, which means that the beans are first washed, then dried on sunbeds in full sun for 14-21 days. The Castro family is involved in the coffee market in many different ways. One of Tacho’s sons is reponsible for the barista education program in the local high school, and competes in Barista Championships. Tacho’s other son works at a coffee exporting company and make relationships in markets.
PRODUCER: RICAUTE RETAVISCA
Farm/washing station: Coocentral
Taste profile: Sweet with notes of ripe yellow pears and caramel
This coffee is from a farm and producer that are a member of Coocentral (Cooperative in Central Huila). Coocentral is doing a smallholder project in cooperation with NA to improve the quality of the coffee and livelihoods of the producers. They are investing in technical assistance, follow up and training with the growers. We bought just two jute bags of this lot, to have it as a temporary coffee and save the last part of the harvest as people usually buy bigger quantities, and sometimes leave a few bags behind.
