INFORMATION ON ORIGIN
Inspired by Italian tradition, Saison is our dark roast blend, specially designed for espresso. Throughout the year, we carefully select lots with the potential to provide an authentic and warm experience at home. Easy to extract, the Saison allows you to enjoy a delicious cup, with or without milk, and above all without hassle. We pay the same attention and the same quality and sustainability standards as all of our coffees to the season. The lots that make up the Season are chosen respecting the seasonality of the coffee harvests, purchase prices several times higher than market prices, and the principles of transparency which govern all of our purchases.
The Saison is a blend of two coffees, from Brazil and Colombia. These coffees are grown at an altitude of 1000 meters (Brazil) and 1500 meters (Colombia). They are picked at full maturity and sorted by floatation first, then by hand, to remove overripe or underripe cherries. They are then mechanically pulped, and dry fermented for 24 to 36 hours, before being laid out on a patio for 7 to 10 days for slow and even drying. With its classic profile and dark roast, the Saison offers a comforting, year-long cup.
This classic coffee tastes like caramel and chocolate, with a syrupy texture particularly suited to espresso and latte.
