Quality is not an accident; it is intentionally crafted. This lot of coffee from San Francisco Estate is an ongoing project between Cuvée Coffee and Jose Antonio Salaverria to methodically and sustainably increase quality at the farm level. Jose Antonio promised to increase the number of dark red ripe cherries by 20 percent over the previous year, and this harvest he achieved a 100-percent dark red harvest proving himself dedicated to the continual pursuit of perfection.

How can you improve on 100 percent? By going higher. Never satisfied by the phrase “good enough,” Jose Antonio continually pushes the boundaries of excellence. Laguna Las Ranas was created for us by using coffee grown only on the top of the mountain known as Cerro Las Ranas. This higher elevation creates a denser coffee bean allowing for a more consistent roast and a broader range of flavors.

A strong relationship built on mutual respect and trust is how we intend to continually improve our product, and we are proud to work with producers who strive for the same goals. Laguna Las Ranas has been a project that we’ve been building together for the past five years, and we’ll continue to support Jose Antonio’s dedication and his spirit of exploration. Because continuing quality isn’t an accident, quality is sustained with our continuing relationship.
