CATALAN COLLECTION

$60.00

Celebrating ten years of Direct Trade partnership between Catalan de Las Mercedes and Pilot Coffee Roasters. In collaboration with producer partner, Nicholas Hammond of Catalan de Las Mercedes, this box set features two perfectly contrasting coffees that tell our story – from humble beginnings, to risks taken, and an exciting future outlook for our partnership.

In addition to these two rare and limited coffees, the collection includes an immersive video trip to origin and keepsake booklet that answers the question “Why Direct Trade Matters.”

Available in very limited quantities while supplies last.


CATALAN ‘NATURAL’
Honey, Pear & Smooth

Catalan’s primary crop, expressed through boundary-breaking processing. Bourbons are what drew us to Nico’s farm on that fateful day in 2012. Shade grown at high altitude; attended to with immense care. About six years ago, Nicholas introduced natural processing to his farm at a time where they simply weren’t being exported from Guatemala. His expert processing broke new ground, and now, naturals are easily the most acclaimed coffees we offer from Catalan.

CATALAN ‘PACAMARA’
Marmalade, Cinnamon & Creamy

A coffee that we’ve watched grow from the nursery, now fully-realized and ready to share. Pacamaras are among the new experimental varieties Nicholas grows on the farm. Once the seedlings successfully respond to the climate and altitude, they are transplanted to the shaded highlands to mature and bear large red and yellow cherries. You’ll notice that even the beans look uncommonly big!

This washed Pacamara is a fruity, jammy flavour explosion. Characteristics that Pacamaras are known for, but taken to bright new places with Nicholas’s processing.

THE GOOD BEYOND THE CUP
Catalan team members are provided with access to a newly-constructed children’s education centre on the farm. Pilot Coffee Roasters will fund 100% of its operating costs – including teacher wages and daily meals – with proceeds from each Catalan coffee that we purchase.
