A coffee for morning, noon and night. This medium roast is rich, balanced, and incredibly smooth. The coffee components rotate seasonally, but it's always the same easy-drinking coffee with a creamy body and a toffee-like sweetness.
San Seb all day long ?? What a lovely thought. If we could dream up the perfect decaf this would be it!! San Sebastian is consistently one of our favourite coffees year after year and has been since all the way back in 2013. But, never once did we stop and think, could we just get it decaffeinated? Well, now we have, and honestly, there’s really nothing better. It's gotta be one of the best Decafs we’ve ever had. It’s got all the lovely aspects of San Sebastian without any of the caffeine and great as both a filter or espresso!!
Why we love this coffee Comfort, comfort, comfort!! We love it because it’s a rich, and heavy cup with a creamy texture, that's developed enough to bring out layers of deep chocolate, toasted nut and molasses flavours without imparting any of those pesky charcoal notes. COFFEE STORY Built on our love of comforting flavours in coffee, Detour Dark is all about roast development. Typically combining coffees from Brazil, Colombia, or Guatemala, we focus solely on caramelization and roast, rather than the origin with a focus on the flavours developed through the caramelization process during the roast, without the impact of heavy charcoal or smoky attributes. Choosing high-grown coffees that lend themselves to a longer roast and hotter temperature while still maintaining structure, balance and sweetness is key to creating a big, rich and full-bodied coffee.

TASTING A rich and balanced profile with sugar and spice-like aromatics that lead to a syrupy texture and juicy flavours of butterscotch, plum and cocoa on the finish. COFFEE STORY An “old-school” Detour favourite returns! Back after a little hiatus, Los Idolos is a small farmers coop called “Grupo Asociativo San Agustín Los Cauchos” named for the pre-Columbian civilization known which flourished next to the mountains where the Magdalena River in San Agustin, Huila, Colombia. The coffee growers from this region initially got together to share ideas and form groups to facilitate the sale of their coffees. The group has always been quality-focused and members currently working on standardizing practices, improving their washing processes as well as their drying patios. They have managed to significantly increase the quality of their coffee over time.

Why we love this coffee The coziest of cozy coffees, this coffee feels like sitting by a fire with the bright winter sun shining. It’s a layered and warming cup with soft citrus and sugar browning aromatics, a creamy texture and warming delicate notes of clementine, toasted almond and mulled plums. Coffee Story Like a warm illumination of heat, this limited edition blend is a little token of brightness and warmth to run through these cold mid-winter days. This blend brings together two of our favourites regions, Huila in Colombia and Tarrazu in Costa Rica and one of our favourite Producers Roger Urena. 40% of the blend is made up of a Costa Rican lot that comes from Roger Urena's farm El Toño and is processed at his Santa Teresa micro mill using the white honey method. We have worked with and purchased coffees from Cup of Excellence winning producer Roger Urena for over 6 years now and every year we are floored by his passion and extremely inspired by his obsession with quality at all levels. Roger, is a third-generation coffee producer, who also owns the wet mill, Santa Teresa 2000 where he processes the coffees from his farms. 60% of the blend is made up of a Colombian lot from The Grupo Asociativo San Agustin Los Cauchos, which is a smaller grower cooperative that formed in 2001 next to the mountains by the Magdalena River in San Agustin, Huila. These growers realized they had the potential for excellent coffee and have been working with the goal of improving each year since. They grow mostly Caturra and fully wash their coffees before drying.

Coffee Story Another returning favourite from the Tarrazu region in Costa Rica, this coffee comes to us from producer Luis Alberto Monge’s farm Santa Rosa and is processed at his family-owned micro-mill, La Lia. La Lia is located in the Leon Cortez micro-region of Tarrazu and just outside its capital city, San Marco. This picturesque micro-mill processes many different levels of honey for their coffees. This lot has undergone a yellow honey process fermentation, whereby the coffee is allowed to ferment in a small portion of its pulped fruit mucilage before being washed and dried. This process gives the coffee a much cleaner texture than darker honey processed coffees but still has tonnes of fruit character and more clarity in the cup.
