Colombia San Agustin

Producer: Club San Agustin
Location: San Agustin, Huila
Elevation: 1500-1800 meters
Variety: Caturra



As part of our summer menu, we are pleased to be able to offer a new Colombian coffee as part of our offerings. 
                                                                       
This exemplary coffee is from San Agustin, Huila an area in southwest Colombia. In Huila, an area blessed with optimal coffee growing terroir, most farms are small scale and are tended to by individual families. Club San Agustin comprises 50 of the top quality producers in the region. In addition to technical support with growing and processing, the Club looks to improve the social well-being of the community. This unique lot is the product of 25 Club San Agustin producers’ whose coffees have been combined based on profile and quality and then electronically sorted to produce a zero defect coffee.


Vital to the quality of coffee produced in Huila is the care taken during the drying process. After the fruit has been removed from the coffee with the pulping and washing equipment, the still in parchment coffee is laid to dry on patios or rooftops with pulley systems that provide cover in the event of rain. Many farmers also employ parabolic beds, known locally as marquesinas, which ensure airflow across both ends while protecting the parchment from rain, mist, and condensation. The drying of coffee is critical to the quality of overall flavour as well as the shelf life of the unroasted coffee.

 

 

Colombia San Agustin will be served in store and retail bags can be purchased online from our store or in any of our Calgary or Lower Mainland locations.

Brazil Fazenda Piedade

Producer: The Taveres Family
Location: Cerrado Mineiro, Minas Gerais
Elevation: 1200 meters
Variety: Mundo Novo

We are excited to offer a new seasonal coffee on our menu. We love this excellent Brazilian offering, and believe it to be a great representation of the hard work of a quality producer.

Fazenda Piedade can be purchased online from our store or in any of our Calgary or Lower Mainland locations.

Cerrado Mineiro is famous for its high quality coffee production, and is an officially recognized Deséignation of Origin for coffee. It is here in 1968, among the green hill and the mountains of Minas Gerais that Hélio Tavares, a civil engineer turned farmer, inherited Fazenda Piedade. 

Over the next three decades he expanded and modernized his farm and techniques to produce high quality coffee and pick only the ripest cherries. His passion was passed onto his three children, who all went on to study agronomy and after his passing, in 1999, continue to manage the farm along wtih his widow.  Today housing, meals, medical care and professional and safety training are all provided to the farm’s seasonal and permanent workers. Children are also given access to schooling. Modern and high quality equipment is used in the processing, along with a legal conservation area, to perserve native flora and fauna while increasing biodiversity.

 
In the cup Fazenda Piedade is rich and well structured, with flavours of roasted nuts and caramel.
