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.
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.
