  • We have always been a big fan of the Santa Barbara region, and this coffee really stood our for us. It was imported by Collaborative Coffee based out of the US, who we know strives for absolute transparency and supporting the farmers they work with. The Santa Barbara reqion was greatly devastated by recent tropical storms and many farmers lost entire crops, their homes and even loved ones. Thankfully Eulogio was not hit by the storms, and was able to get his coffee out to us.

    Eulogio comes from a lineage of coffee producers – his grandfather and father were producers. In the 1970s, his parents lost all their coffee plants to a rust attack. Yoyo (as he is more commonly known) was obviously discouraged from coffee farming seeing what his family had gone through, but fortunately was given the opportunity to work for a nonfamily coffee farmer who was very successful and taught him that coffee can be an economically sustainable crop. Yoyo bought his farm I 1990 and from the beginning he was determined to make a better life for himself and own his family than his family had been able to accomplish through coffee farming. He loves the crop itself, he loves the taste of good quality coffee, and enjoys meeting coffee roasters and the fact that his lots are constantly entering new markets of coffee drinkers. While his biggest challenges are shortages in labour and C-market volatility, he remains resolute in continuing to develop on what he’s accomplished in his career as a coffee producer, to continue providing his family with a good life and the future generations within his family the best opportunities to make good lives for themselves through coffee. His hard work at persistence has paid off in many ways, not least of which includes his winning the top spot at Cup of Excellence 2015.

Very Good Coffee

The packaging of this coffee is what first drew my eye, then the price tag. I've seen a few roasters moving to this external box packaging and I really wanted to see what it was about. It turns out, it's not much. The external box has roasting and tasting notes, and slips off to reveal... a zip-lock baggie. I'm a sucker for good packaging and a nice one-way valve to keep my coffee fresh and de-gassed. I was a bit disappointed with this packaging style. That made me a little worried about the quality of the roast itself. Thankfully my worries were quickly assuaged. The coffee is delicious with an excellent mouth feel. It is incredibly smooth. I brewed with a column dripper and a 6-cup chemex and I enjoyed both thoroughly. It has a lovely front-taste that is almost hidden by how velvety it feels. The finish is very pleasant and slightly bitter. I can definitely understand the notes of black-tea, and the smooth subtle sweetness of a fig jam. Excellent coffee, at a premium price, with exciting but weak packaging.
