Over the years, Cafés Lugat has selected coffees globally recognised as "specialty coffees" : they are single-origin / pure origin quality coffees with a traceability that allows for a precise quality control. The green beans are roasted by real craftspeople to unleash the greatest flavour potential. Specialty coffees are rated over 80/100 by the Specialty Coffee Association. We've compiled these coffees into 3 different designations :
- Label Coffee : high-quality coffee grown in a specific geographic location
- Terroir Coffee : Coffee grown in a region with particularities that will impact on the characteristics of the coffee such as a specific climate, soil composition etc...
- Micro-Lot : Coffee grown on an identified small plot of land known for its exceptional qualities. Micro-lot coffees are therefore produced in smaller amount than a regular harvest, making them "limited edition"
You can also find Specialty Coffee in the Ground Coffee section.

Did you know? Specialty coffees, also called "Gourmet Coffees" are defined as high quality coffees (coffees with no or nearly no flaws), easily traceable (production region, farm and lot used) with controlled growth (climate study, manual and selective harvest, transformation process). It's the SCAE (Specialty Coffee Association of Europe) who defines and improves the standards of specialty coffees.
The analogy with wine and grand cru wines can be quickly made since we have focused on high-end products. Beyond the quality requirements in place, roasters are encouraged to be innovative, to create a new experiences and an excellent coffee.
