San Sebastian

The ProducerSan Sebastian

San Sebastian is a brand of coffee started by our export partners Caravela, to bring together the smallholders in the La Plata region around a particular flavour profile and quality. We’ve partnered with them for over a decade - buying larger quantities of their coffee to roast for our single origin supermarket range, and small batches of its very best ‘micro-lot grade’ coffee for our Discovery range (the one you’re reading about).

Over the years we’ve helped fund a climate change monitoring system for the producer network, training to help them process waste-water in an climate-friendly way, and virtual classrooms that they can use to learn about farm management.

Occicafe and Global Cafes

The AssociationsOccicafe and Global Cafes

The operation is run by two associations that act as buying and training centres for the producer members nestled high in the La Plata hills, many in remote, difficult to reach locations.

When their coffee is ready, farmers pile themselves and their coffee onto a communal truck that picks them up as it winds down mountain and takes them to these stations where their coffee is cupped, graded and paid for.

How to brew Colombia San Sebastian

It’s equally at home as a balanced filter or a bright espresso shot, but we particularly love brewing this coffee in a Chemex. Not only does it elevate its crisp, clean acidity but you can brew enough to satisfy a large brew round. This really is coffee for sharing.
