    Coroico is situated just 1.5 hours away from La Paz (the capital and highest city) and the Altiplano, but it has a completely different climate and vegetation. At an altitude of 1700 metres, in this area of the Northern Yungas, vegetation is abundant, its bio diversity is beautiful and the climate is warm during the day and cold and foggy during the night and early morning. Coroico was a very important coffee region in the 90s but now only a handful of families continue to produce coffee here. Many Families have since moved from coffee production to cultivate other crops, largely coca. Villa Asunsion is a 15 hectare farm in Coroico where coffee is grown on a small separate, 2-3 hectare plot, alongside coca, citrus fruits, papaya, mangos, bananas and stevia. None of the farming at Villa Asunsion is performed with the use of fertilisers or chemicals. Coffee at Villa Asunsion is grown up to 1900 masl in native shade. Varieties are Caturra and Typica, with cherries ripening both red and yellow in colour. Once harvested, coffee is washed, soaked for 18 hours before being dried on raised beds.

    Taste

    This stunning, naturally-processed coffee scored an impressive 87.75 during cupping, making it one of our high scoring coffees. La Candelilla blossoms with a bouquet of wild floral honey, caramel and grapefruit, smoothly moving to candied lemon and jasmine.

    From the first sip of this incredible cup the palate is met with a burst of ripe apricot and honey-vanilla filling out to a beautifully balanced body, full of smooth, refined, Sauvignon Blanc-like acidity.

    Facts

    This unique micro-lot of coffee comes from La Candelilla Farm, an amazing single estate owned by the Sanchez family. They have worked the land for five generations but in 2000 the family pooled their resources to build the farm and micro-mill. It was an unprecedented move in Costa Rica and it inspired many other small producers to set up their own micro-lots. Because of this, the variety of coffee and knowledge of coffee amongst those that work the land has increased ten-fold.

    The Estate produces a wide variety of coffee and the family's forward thinking approach to processing and varietal planting has earned them the reputation of one of the best coffee producers in Costa Rica. The farm only produced five sacks of this particular coffee from a tiny section of the estate and we have been lucky to acquire two of them, so when we say for a limited time only, we really do mean it.

When tasting, on first sip we found this to be a sweet, mild coffee with moderate complexities followed by a mellow milk chocolate after taste. A genuinely luxurious coffee to be drunk throughout the day like an afternoon tea.

    Facts

    The Santa Leticia Estate has been run by the Valdivieso family for generations high in the Apaneca-llamatepec mountains in the North West of El Salvador. It was the current owner, Ricardo Valdivieso's great grandfather, who purchased the farm in 1870 and named it after his wife, Leticia. A lot of love and knowledge goes into this coffee.

    Grown at a height of 1200-1750 metres above sea level, the farm is also an archaeological site, complete with Mayan artefacts.

    This delicious natural-processed coffee comes from small-holdings based around the Rocko Mountain in Haricha Woreda, Yirgacheffe. It is strongly aromatic of honeysuckle and bergamot. The taste has great balance with ripe strawberry, blueberry muffin and lasting coffee/chocolate/mocha.

    Rocko Mountain is one of the highest scoring speciality coffees we stock and is a firm favourite here at the roastery.

    Facts

    Many people believe that Ethiopia is the birth-place of the Arabica coffee tree. The tree grows best at heights of 1,200-1,800 metres and the main crop is from October to December. Our Yirgacheffe is planted on small coffee farms, usually no larger than a hectare. This makes it possible for the farmers to take more precise care of their plantation, noticeable by the delicate flavours and aroma the coffee gives off in your cup. The Yirgacheffe is washed in the same manner as the Sidamo during preparation, a method only used for the best kinds of coffee.

    Taste

    This is a superb and amazingly complex coffee grown on a family-owned estate in the highlands of the Kaffa region. There are lovely floral notes, delicious juicy apricot, forest honey and tongue-hugging caramel.

    Facts

    According to local folklore it is this very forest where Kaldi danced with his goats after discovering coffee. The coffee here is wild and natural and grows in an area of some 2,000 hectares at an altitude of between 1,750 and 1,850 metres above sea level. Approximately half of this land remains a natural forest with the coffee growing amongst the trees. Such conditions provide incredible biodiversity and the coffee plants are nurtured by cool morning mists and a lush tropical canopy providing protective shade from the midday sun. The soil is enriched with organic nutrients as the fallen tree leaves decay and in the process become a natural mulching agent. Ethiopia’s last forest lions are said to live within the Kaffa Forest.

    Ethiopia is thought to be the birthplace of coffee with wild-growing coffea arabica being found in the forests of the Kaffa region. Ethiopia is the world's 7th largest producer of coffee, and Africa's top producer. Half of the coffee is consumed by Ethiopians, and the country leads the continent in domestic consumption. The method of producing coffee in Ethiopia has not changed much since the 10th century, with nearly all work, cultivating and drying, still done by hand.
