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.
This coffee is made by the COCLA cooperative in the Cusco region, in Quillabamba.
The coffea plants are grown at altitudes of between 800 and 2,000 metres, near the world-famous Machu Picchu.
This coffee is a wet-processed blend of Typica, Caturra and Bourbon Arabicas.
It benefits from excellent climatic conditions, which cause the coffee cherries to ripen slowly. The end result is a cup of coffee with just the right level of natural sweetness.

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!
