Farmer/Producer/Mill: Diego Lopez
Flavour Note: Blackcurrant, Mango, Mandarin

In 2006, Diego Lopez, an agricultural engineer acquired his farm in Finca San Francisco. Since then, he has become an expert in the Caturra varietal. To get the most out of his Caturra, Diego uses a red honey process. After picking the outer skin of the cherry is removed (depulped), however, the mucilage (sweet, sticky fleshy layer) is left in place while the coffee dries over 15 days to maximise sweetness and body. Diego, like all Colombian producers we work with, is a member of the National Federation of Coffee Growers (FNC). The FNC works with its members in disease prevention, soil management, water treatment, and environmental sustainability. This sweet, complex, full-bodied coffee ticks all the boxes for our filter program.

Varietal: Typica, Arusha
Altitude: 1700-2200
Flavour Note: Nectarine, cherry, cola

In early 2010, MTC and the Colbran family joined in a unique specialty coffee partnership, with the aim to bypass the large multinational exporters and focus on unique, small lot specialty coffees. Boana is sourced from surrounding small-holder coffee communities who delivery fresh cherry to the Baroida wet mill collection. The cherry is sorted and checked for quality and the growers are paid on the spot for their crop. The coffee is processed by the Colbrnas at the Baroida mill. The Colbran family continue to push the quality envelope in one of the most challenging coffee. Flavor profiles here are incredibly unique, with an intense and vibrant fruit-forward expression.

Passionate about coffee the Colbran family moved from New Zealand to PNG in 1963. They started a farm growing different fruits and vegetables to fund the land further. Eventually a saw mill was set up with the savings which in turn was able to generate enough capital to support the coffee dream. The farm was sold in 79 but bought back by the Colbran family in 97. They now not only grow and produce their own coffee but also help the surrounding region through production and marketing support of the nearby farms. This lot in particular is sourced from multiple smallholder farms in the region and produced by the Cobran family in their processing mill with the passion and care they have fostered for almost 50 years.

Exotic in name exotic in nature! From the minds behind the popular Super Specialty lot, Las Margaritas Geisha, we are over the moon to showcase this ‘Mokka' variety and natural processed coffee.

The mokka variety has a long history and has been traced to Yemen over 1000 years ago. It’s very small in size but packs a big punch as you can definitely experience with this super special micro lot. After vigorous picking and hand sorting the cherries are washed and fermented to precision by taste assessment to finalise the profile target. Once the target in-cherry fermentation is reached the cherry skin is removed and a further fermentation stage takes place within its mucilage. The result is an exotic coffee that more than deserves its place on our super specialty program.

Brew, slurp, taste, repeat!
