A chemical-free processed coffee, with a rounded but sweet profile.

Carlos’ farm is incredibly organised. Instead of planting coffee trees in a traditional square, he renovated the farm and planted the trees in rows, akin to how coffee is grown in Brazil. The only difference is that his trees are planted with heightened verticality. This allows for more water conservation and nutrient rich soil.

This dehydrated honey process involves floating the cherries to remove defects, before putting the cherries in poly bag and set ting them aside for 3 days. The cherries start to wrinkle after 3 days of dehydration. This process allows the coffee cherries to transfer all their sweetness to the beans. Carlos then depulps and dries the coffee on the raised beds for a further 18 days.

This coffee is then sent to Germany to be decaffeinated using the chemical- free CO2 process. This involves submerging the unroasted green coffee in warm pressurised water to open up the bean. Carbon molecules are then added to the water which attract and bind with the caffeine.

ROAST TYPE

Origin create a new and unique profile for each coffee they roast. Although the profiles are different, their approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means they don't label their coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. All of their coffees are omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. They believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.
