San Antonio Honey Processed Coffee

This year sees the continuation of Origins collaboration with one of their long-standing Direct Trade partners in El Salvador, Carlos Pola.

Carefully marrying modern technology with time-tested craft and intuition, Carlos and his team have an innate knowledge of the plants that grow on their cultivated hillsides surrounding Juayua.

This year, Carlos started to track every lot on the farm using unique QR codes, which would provide an exact GPS location. Using this information, he can assess how the differing environment affects the taste of the coffee.

This coffee was dried on beds in approximately 50% light. This practice is similar to cooking; Carlos layers cascara (coffee cherry) underneath the beds and uses it as a smoking agent. The cascara’s aroma rises through the beds and infuses with the coffee.

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
