Los Altos is a geographically dynamic farm composed of just over 70 hectares of rolling coffee hills at the base of Kilambe Mountain. Each time we arrive at Los Altos, we're greeted by the workers that come together to create this incredible crop, from coffee growers to pickers. The relationship between the Mierisch family and Origin started over a decade ago and the coffee produced at their farms, especially Los Altos, has been at the core of who we are for years.
Once it's back in the UK, the coffee is roasted to showcase the relationship between the farm and Roastery by highlighting the unique markers of terroir, and imparting our identity on the final cup. This makes a coffee that is approachable, familiar and full of flavour. In the cup there is a soft acidity, full body and creamy finish with comforting notes of milk chocolate and caramel.
