The Artigiano espresso blend features 50% Brazil Fazenda Mariano (Pulped Natural) and 50% Colombia San Fermin (Washed).
Origin Coffee Roasters have been working with Ricardo Barbosa the owner of Fazenda Mariano for over five years now and we are proud to be featuring his coffee. When Origin first met Ricardo, he was selling his coffee to the commodity market, but now receives the price it deserves being a speciality grade coffee produced with impeccable craftsmanship.
Origin’s introduction to the San Fermin coffee started during their sourcing trip to Colombia in late 2015. Working with local mill partners, Caravela, they identified numerous flavour profiles from producers in the Palandas area south of Colombia’s Tolima region. They then took these profiles back totheir lab at The Roastery where they selected their favourite. Caravela then separated out the 27 producers whose coffee fits the San Fermin profile, offering them a premium for their coffee in exchange for the incredible care and attention that must be given to achieve the delicious flavour profile.
So when you drink a shot of espresso from Artigiano, it not only tastes good, but does good for the community who produce it. What a great way to start the day!
