About us You might have guessed it from the name, but every month we introduce a new blend to our roster. That means we can put our Dr. Frankenstein hats on and mix together two beans we think will compliment each other, for a little bit of flavour experimentation. It’s alive!
About the coffee (Colombia) The Colombian coffee component of this blend was produced by 52 smallholder coffee producers from the region of Inzá, a municipality located in the corner of the Department of Cauca and looking out to the west over the Pacific Ocean. The farmers are members of an organisation called ASORCAFE (Asociación de Productores de Café del Oriente Caucano) that represents some 450 producers from across the Department. This specific lot, however, has been selected only from growers hailing from the neighbouring sub-municipalities of Pedregal and San Antonio for it's very high cup quality.
About the coffee (Costa Rica) San Francisco is the name of one district in the ‘Cordillera Central’ also called ‘La Zona de los Santos’ but it is also the name of the farm of Edgar Fallas Solis, his wife Ligia and their son Willian. The family owns 10-12 hectares of coffees intercropped with avocados, citrus and banana trees. Edgar is the second generation working on this 55-year-old farm. Willian, the son, took coffee brewing classes for 4 years and is now competing and won a national championship. He knows a lot about the coffee supply chain and quality and will take over the farm when his dad retires.
