Santa Lucia, Costa Rica
Pineapple, Sponge Toffee, Nougat
.

This wonderful lot comes to us from producer Ricardo Barrantes' farm Finca Santa Lucia and is processed at his family owned micro-mill, Helsar de Zarcero.  In Costa Rica, they rarely use fermentation tanks to remove the pulp.  Instead, they use a centrifugal washer which spins the mucilage off the bean. With this process, you can leave on as little as 10% or as much as 90% of the fruit or “honey.” His mastery of this wet milling process produced this exciting yellow honey processed coffee that is full of tropical aromatics, a luscious pineapple sweetness and notes of sponge toffee and nougat.

Sometimes we don't give decaf as much love as we should here. But rest assured we're just as obsessed about sourcing and roasting our decaf as with all of our coffees. Shown here is our Decaf Tolima, Colombia. Grown in Planadas, Tolima, Colombia by the members of Asemprogrope cooperative. .

Our coffee is decaffeinated using a Mountain Water Process which extracts the caffeine but preserves the original flavour of the bean, resulting in a coffee that's smooth and sweet with notes of caramel, almond and dark chocolate.

Duromina is another gem that comes to us from the Kata Mudaga Union cooperative in Ethiopia. The area known as the Jimma Zone, sits in the highlands of Western Ethiopia where the coffee is grown at an elevation of 1975 to 2100 MASL, and is fully washed. .
In the cup, complex floral aromatics lead to a delicate body with notes of peach, honey and earl grey tea 🍑 🍯 🌿

🍊Have you tried the Santa Teresa yet? 🍊 
Our Green Buyer, Emma, visited producer Roger Urena at the Santa Teresa mill in February of this year and was blown away by his passion and enthusiasm for his coffees. .

This year's lot truly exemplifies coffee grown in the acclaimed Tarrazu region of Costa Rica with a characteristic brown sugar sweetness and notes of orange and marzipan. .

📢FRESH LOOK, SAME DETOUR 📢 .

Our new look is designed to keep all the elements that we have loved about our bags but with more focus on our coffees and sourcing practices. .

On the front, you will find more information about the coffees such as producer, origin, tasting notes, and variety.  On the the side, you'll notice different colours to better distinguish our seasonal Single Origin Coffees from our Year Round Blends.  All of this is bound together with our much beloved artwork, an updated colour palette, and a resealable zipper so your coffee stays fresher, longer.  Of course, the coffee inside is what it's all about and we hope you love it!

Preparing for shipment. Did you know that each of these coffee beans are going to be sorted by hand before they reach you?
.
.
The amount of work, love and attention that goes into each cup of coffee would surprise many. There’s a reason great cups cost a little bit more but we believe that the result speaks for itself.

Yesterday was such an exciting day for Detour... a full container arrived at our warehouse and it’s all ours!! Warning... we are about to pat ourselves on the back.
-
This represents a huge effort that started months ago with our amazing producers at origin and ended at our roaster (and hopefully soon into your cups!). Buying great coffees involves travelling, tasting and most importantly, establishing relationships that span oceans. Also, it means that going forward, there’s so much more to come. In two weeks, our Guatemalan coffees are arriving and we are already planning our purchasing trips to Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Burundi and more!!

Making amazing coffee isn’t easy. It takes patience, a passion for quality and sometimes even a little elbow grease. We are so proud to be able to share this with everyone. .
