Oscar and Luis Monge have been running their farms and micro-mill (called La Lia) since 2008. The farm has been in the family for almost 70 years but used to sell to the local co-op until they set up their own mill and named it after their mom: Lia. This lot is 100% San Roque - a variety that evolved from Kenya’s SL-28 - and it’s grown on their farm called Pie-San.

In my humble opinion, Pie-San is Oscar and Luis’ best farm. It was planted in 2014 with San Roque, Geisha, Sudan Rume, Orange Bourbon and several other cool, exotic varieties. This coffee has been a personal favourite of mine since we first brought it to Calgary in 2020 - it’s not as big as some of our other coffees but it’s a coffee that is very elegant with lots of subtle complexities. It always surprises me how it develops as it cools.

I have always been impressed with Luis and Oscar’s forward-thinking mentality and their demeanour towards their staff and pickers.

As always, this green coffee was frozen immediately on arrival in Calgary, to preserve freshness.
