Coffee of the month - Cesar Sampertegui - washed
This month, we're visiting one of the most unique coffee producers in the island, Cesar Sampertegui. We met Cesar in 2021, and since then his fruity and floral honey coffee has been a regular part of the range. This month we're tasting Cesar's coffee with a new process - a washed coffee. Cesar has the perfect conditions to grow unique coffees with 2000 meters of altitude and a mild climate and healthy, nutrient-rich soil. Coffee grown at these altitudes is known to have complex and distinct flavor notes with a floral aroma.

Emil has put Cesar's coffee to the test and gives you a little taste: "Cesar's washed coffee is, to my taste, a refreshing and juicy coffee that just makes you want to drink more. It has a lovely sweetness and balance between the acidic, the fruity and the sweet, which all come together. You often see this with coffees grown at this altitude! I taste sweetness and creamy notes of milk chocolate, complimented by some fresh red grapes and ripe sweet raspberries. I think it's fantastic on my Hario V60, where the fresh fruity nuances are clearly visible!

The story behind
Cesar Sampertegui and Finca El Oropel
This month we’re visiting one of the most unique coffee producers in the island, Cesar Sampertegui. We met Cesar in 2021, and since then his fruity and floral honey coffee has been a regular part of the range.
The farm El Oropel, which is also the name of a local tree that grows in the region, is owned by the Sempertegui family, which consists of the married couple Cesar and María, their two children Gina and Erica, aged 10 and 3, and their dog Cumpa. The farm is located around 2000 meters above sea level, and offers an exceptional view of the mountainous and lush landscape. The mountainside is steep, and reaching the upper coffee field is a bit of challenge, which makes you think of the difficulties of having to get the heavy sacks of coffee berries down to the farm.
This month we’re tasting Cesar’s coffee with a new process – a washed coffee. Cesar has the perfect conditions to grow unique coffees with 2000 meters of altitude and a mild climate and healthy, nutrient-rich soil. Coffee grown at these altitudes is known to have complex and distinct flavor notes with a floral aroma. Although both washed and honey coffee begin with the same coffee bean, the two production methods have a significant impact on the final flavor in the cup. Honey coffees are characterized by an extra-large sweetness and boldness, while washed coffees are known to have a fresher taste, delicate acidity and a clean flavor.
