The Story of Cafés Lugat :
Lionel Lugat is the legendary coffee roaster at MaxiCoffee . Over the years, he has surrounded himself with an expert team of coffee roasters.
This coffee specialist is also a judge in the French Coffee Championships and expert columnist for our coffee company! Lionel tells the story of Cafés Lugat and his passion for coffee roasting below.
Coffee trees grow at about 1500 meters above sea level and benefit from a cool climate and abundant rain. They grow under shade trees that protect them from wind, sun and heavy rain. All coffee plants are exclusively of the Typica variety. The Sigri plantation pays particular attention to quality control. The fruits of the coffee trees are picked by hand and are rigorously checked.
The cherries must be very red, proof that the fruits are full of sugar and acidity. The selected cherries are then de-pulped on the day of harvest. The parchment coffees undergo total immersion in water for several days, which gives a higher quality. They are then naturally dried under the sun.
Small producers maintain their plots (than 2 hectares each) with between 20 and 600 coffee trees. 80 plantations (Estates) have been recorded. The most famous are the Sigri, Bunum Wo, Arona Valley, Gumanch and Tremearne plantations.
Today, Australian organizations (NASAA, BioFarm Australia) support producers so they can get the organic certification. The coffee industry is controlled by the Coffee Industry Board. The government has always supported the production of Arabica. It guarantees a minimum selling price to producers at the start of each season .
Cafés Lugat boasts a team of enthusiastic young coffee roasters who select exceptional coffees and create irresistible recipes just for you. Through their range of coffee beans, ground coffees and Nespresso® compatible capsules, their mission is to bring you the unique flavour and aromas from the world's best coffee-producing areas!
