DIRECT TRADE: ETHIOPIA

Ethiopia, birthplace of coffee. Its native varieties, its location, its territory and its optimal climate for growing coffee give Ethiopia a privilege position over almost all other origins. An Ethiopian coffee 'of the average' may be better than the most exclusive of many other countries.+ info




DIRECT TRADE: KENYA

As every year in February, our co-worker Lara gets ready to go to Africa in order to learn more about this unique origin and select the coffee lots that she will bring back home to be roasted.+ info




RS PROCESS: EXPERIMENTING WITH OUR OWN RECIPES

Months after starting our journey in 2013, we committed to establishing direct relationships with producers who share the same vision as us. This fact made us understand way better the flavors developed by certain varieties grown in specific regions finding out which profiles were more interesting for us.+ info




DIRECT TRADE: ESPÍRITU SANTO, BRAZIL

The region of Espiritu Santo in Brazil is another exception that completely breaks with the belief that there are only coffees with boring profiles labeled as 'nutty' or ‘chocolate’. To prove it, we didn’t hesitate to continue our journey through this great country to discover this incredible region.+ info




DIRECT TRADE: BOLIVIA

Bolivia, the country of extremes and third stop on our trip to South America last October. The arrival to El Alto, a city that houses La Paz airport at around 4,150 masl, welcomes us as if we were travelling to the moon.+ info




DIRECT TRADE: COLOMBIA PART 1

The first stop of our last trip to South America took place in Colombia. We arrived at the scandalous Bogota to stay overnight and leave the next morning to Neiva. We met with Rafael there, who is the engineer of the cooperative and the person in constant contact with the producers with whom we work.+ info




DIRECT TRADE: GUATEMALA

Guatemala City concentrates the main economic and demographic movement accumulating almost a third of the total population of the -indeed- most populated country in Central America.

COLD BREWED INFUSI0NS

With the arrival of the new harvest of our coffee plant infusions, we are happy to announce that we have been able to improve the logistics and obtain better prices for these products that have given us so much joy during this first year.+ info




NATURAL AND H0NEY PR0CESS INFUSI0N

Taking into account that coffee is one of the most consumed beverages worldwide, the coffee plant itself is still fairly unknown and very few people even have an idea of what it looks like, what color its fruits are or which part of it ends up in our coffee cups. Well, let us take a minute to unravel the mystery: what we know and love as coffee beans are actually the grains of a type of cherry, growing out of a beautiful little flower, that is produced by a tree - the Coffea arabica.+ info




ROASTING PHIL0S0PHY

We are well aware that there is no magic without tricks. In our case, the trick is to respect and develop the flavors of each coffee, which were defined at its place of origin by all the steps taken during the processing from the coffee fruit to the “ready-to-roast” green coffee that lands on our doorstep at the roastery: the maturation of the coffee cherry, the process that we use to get rid of the pulp, the type of fermentation the grains go through, as well as the drying method are essential to our work. And during the actual roasting of the coffee beans, we can respect or destroy the universe of flavors every little grain carries within.+ info
