La Huella Pulped Natural Coffee

La Huella translates as ‘the footprint’ in Spanish. It sits on a small plateau inside the Los Altos farm which is at the heart of so much of what Origin do.

By concentrating their focus on this little plateau, the ripeness of the coffee cherries can be carefully monitored, to develop a fantastic flavour profile. This plateau also benefits from a consistent climate, which means that the coffee develops similar compounds in each bean for razor-sharp clarity of flavour.

This coffee was picked and placed in water overnight to prevent fermentation. Once the coffee cherries are de-pulped, the coffee is dried and turned four times a day on black coloured polymeric material net that allowed air to pass between the ground and the coffee. The coffee is then moved to raised African beds to dry for 12 to 15 days under 50% shade until the humidity drops below 12.5%.

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 so are meant to be delicious however you brew. Origin believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a coffee shop

"With consumers working from home and unable to visit their favourite coffee shops as a result of the pandemic, they have been honing in on their barista skills to get their coffee fix at home. They are also buying coffee shop branded coffee to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience.""Despite the fact that many consumers are facing economic uncertainty, premium and branded coffees have an opportunity to market themselves as affordable luxuries. The purse strings may need to tighten but a premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than drinks from a coffee shop. Consumers are discovering it is safer and more cost-effective to have their own coffee at home and this trend is likely to continue even once the virus is under relative control...This shift opens up a real opportunity for coffee and the products that will support them in recreating that experience at home."For more: Comunicaffe International
