New beans on the way to our roastery!
posted February 01 2013
This amazing coffee has been in the works for a couple of seasons. Our farmer friends in Coyona Peru have grown and cared for this special lot of unwashed Canchaque coffee. Traditionally all the coffee exported from Peru was unwashed/natural until the market demanded change and washed coffees got the farmer a better price. 25 years later and the exact opposite is true. Roasters around the world now recognize the amazing aromas, flavour and richness found in unwashed coffees and are eager to add them to their offerings.
Our cupping lab in Montreal uses sweet, ripe berries & cocoa to describe the flavours. Something to look forward to!
May's coffee of the month is Colombian Excelso - Fondo Paez, from Fondo Paez located in the Cuaca region of Colombia. This coffee has has berry and wine notes with a rich creamy body and sweet acidity. A great coffee for any time of the day!
La FEM coffee has a new name - Las Diosas - La FEM. Michael and Helen traveled to Esteli in northern Nicaragua to visit with members of the La FEM cooperative who are also are part of the Centro de Cooperativas, also known as Las Diosas, which means 'The Goddess'.
Exciting news! Our roastery is expecting an amazing new coffee from Peru’s Piura region. Keep an eye on our facebook page and website to follow the green beans on their way to the Yukon.
