  • We're very excited to offer a new always-on Organic single-origin coffee - throughout the year we're going to always be offering at least one Organic certified coffee that you can also subscribe to! The coffee we offer in this space will change across the course of the year as different lots come and go, but they'll always be certified as Organic and thoroughly delicious.

    This lot comes from 18 individual producers in the area around San Antonio de Chingama. The population of San Antonio de Chingama is around 200 people, most of whom rely on coffee production for their income. These 18 work with our exporter, Origin Coffee Lab, in the nearby city of Jaén in Cajamarca. The 18 people form a community of producers who support each other - this group is called Agua Azul after the clear blue waters that run down from the steep mountains on which the coffee grows.

    Most of the producers have less than 3 hectares of coffee, with the largest having 7.5 hectares. Although there are some older producers, many members of the community are under 30. They also have a wide variety of varietals planted - although Caturra, Catuai and Catimors are the most common, there are some examples of Marsellesa and Typica and some are looking at planting Geisha in the future too. This forward-looking, cautiously experimental approach and drive to improve their results is a definite factor in keeping the quality of this community lot consistently good from year to year.

    If you'd like to see the names of all 18 producers along with the size of their land and the coffee varieties they grow, please click on the Contributing Producers section below. Our exporting partners Origin Coffee Lab made sure to collect this information so we could share it with you as this lot wouldn't be what it is without the hard work and dedication of each and every one of those 18 producers.

    The mix of wafer biscuit, caramel and milk chocolate in this cup just shouts Tunnock's Caramel Wafer. That sweet and comforting cup brings you back for sip after sip of this biscuity treat.
