The history of Cafés Lugat:

Lionel Lugat is the legendary roaster at MaxiCoffee. Over the years, he has surrounded himself with an expert team of roasters.

This coffee specialist, judge in the French Coffee Championships and expert columnist for our coffee company tells the story of Cafés Lugat and his passion for coffee roasting below.

Presentation of the coffee:
This coffee comes from the Tarrazu region in the province of San José on the west coast of Costa Rica.

Its location is affected by Pacific winds, which improves the coffee's taste.

This coffee is a blend of two botanical varieties: Caturra and Catuai. They are manually harvested and selected then washed in water. The processing plant is environmentally friendly. The water used to process the beans is recycled, while the pulp is used as a natural fertiliser.

This coffee comes from coffea plants that grow in the shade at 1,700-metre altitudes. These excellent climatic conditions lead to a high-quality coffee cherry.

These conditions help this coffee to achieve the grade "SHB", or "Strictly Hard Bean".

Geographical location:

A bit of background...

The Tarrazu region, also known as "Los Santos", is home to some of the most exceptional coffees in the Central American mountains. Catuai and Caturra Arabica beans are grown there.

With plenty of shade from inga and avocado trees, the region offers the ideal conditions for the cherries to ripen slowly and progressively. Coffee grown in this region develops special organoleptic properties as the cherries are harvested late in the season (they are light when ripe).

According to Costa Rican history, the first coffea plants were imported from Cuba in 1779. They were planted in 1854 by English visionaries, who had arrived to develop imports and exports in the area.

Costa Rica was the first country in Central America to produce coffee commercially. Innovative scientific and agricultural methods greatly improved growing and processing procedures and the country quickly became a role model for its Central American neighbours.

Nowadays, Costa Rica is particularly renowned for its shade-grown coffee. These exceptional agroclimatic conditions are enhanced by the ecosystems' location on high valleys and plateaus. Coffee from Costa Rica is considered a Specialty Coffee just like famous coffee from other countries such as the Ethiopian Sidamo or the Jamaican Blue Mountain or even coffee from the Antigua region in Guatemala.

The Costa Rican climate changes over the seasons: the rainy season helps the cherries to grow and develop, then the dry season coincides with the harvest. Since the creation of the Costa Rican Coffee Institute (ICAFE) in 1993, the country's plantations have committed to growing in a socially and environmentally responsible way. Production costs are therefore slightly higher than before. The association has recently carried out studies to map all coffee plantations and analyse their performance.
