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.

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.

Tasting Notes: Honey Blackberry Milk Chocolate Processing: Washed Variety: Pache San Ramon Altitude: 1600m Background Info: Located in a lesser known region of Guatemala, the producers of Mataquescuintla have had little access to specialty markets. As a result, the prices they received were based on the terrible low commodity price of coffee, or “C-price”, often lower than costs of production. On top of this, producers in the region have been further strained by violent social conflict surrounding the proposed expansion of the Escobal mine, owned by Vancouver-based Pan American Silver. The indigenous Xinca Parliament has repeatedly voiced opposition, plebiscites have shown 98% of locals in the surrounding towns are opposed, and peaceful protests were organized demanding consultation and transparency. In response, paramilitary security forces were deployed by the mining company, injuring and killing land defenders. To this day, producers face death threats and are systematically criminalized. Having read about the conflict, Drew Johnson of Bows & Arrows Coffee in Victoria, BC travelled to the community, where he met Alex Reynoso. Alex is the unofficial leader of the coffee producers in the area, and an organizer in the local resistance. Drew then called on roasters back home to help, and a group of mostly BC-based coffee companies formed a makeshift buying group in 2019 with the goal of paying higher prices and forming longevity and stability with our commitments. The group collectively purchased over 40 thousand kilos of coffee that first year. This is the second harvest that the group has been together, and we’re so thankful to be able to buy their coffees for a second year especially amidst the strains of the pandemic. This is not the type of glamorous or romanticized discourse we’re used to in coffee, but it’s important to add context to the lived realities of producers. We roasted Reyes’ coffee to highlight the crisp berry acidity and honey 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!!
