Behind the Blend

Las Palomas, translating as Pigeons and subsequently named after the bird life that can be found in the area, is a family farm in the Tarbaca District of the Canton Aserri, Costa Rica. It spans six hectares and produces roughly 11.5 tonnes of coffee (or 250x 46kg fanegas) annually. 

Cherries from this lot were processed at the mill on the same day as picking and then transferred to drying patios where they sun-dry for 7 days. The cherries are turned regularly to avoid fermentation and regularly sorted as they dry to ensure superior quality.

The resulting coffee holds a syrupy, well-rounded sweetness that is subtle at first, but lingers on the palette and impresses more and more with every syrup. 

Las Palomas employs two full-time workers and 25 extra workers during harvest season and operates within the Association of Agricultural Producers of Acosta and Asseri (ASOPROAAA).

ASOPROAAA covers over 1150 members and was set up to revive agricultural production after the devastation of Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Since its founding, it has been responsible for continued financial, commercial and technical support to its members, and pioneered an initiative to build over 2000 houses for people in the area with limited resources.

Project Waterfall

703 million people around the world today don’t have access to clean water. The majority live in isolated, rural areas – the same areas growing our coffee.

Through our partnership with Project Waterfall, 10% of our retail coffee bag sales go to supporting coffee-growing communities around the world, which provides clean water, sanitation and education to those at the start of the
supply chain.

We solidified our partnership with the charity in 2019 and since then have donated over £25,000, equating to over 1,000 people receiving clean water and sanitation for life.

Our Roastery

At 92 Degrees, the coffee roastery is the heart of the company. Here’s what goes on behind the scenes. First, the green coffee beans are carefully selected from farms all over the world, with a focus on sustainability and ethical sourcing. The beans are then roasted in small batches using state-of-the-art roasting machines, which ensures consistency and quality in every batch. The roasting process is an art and science, and the master roasters at 92 Degrees have years of experience in perfecting their craft.

Once the coffee beans are roasted, they are cooled down and packaged into bags for distribution. The packaging process is also done with care, as the bags are designed to preserve the freshness and flavor of the coffee for as long as possible. The bags are then labeled with the origin, roast date, and other important information, so customers can learn more about the coffee they are enjoying.

Finally, the coffee is shipped out to 92 Degrees cafes and retail partners, where it is served to customers or sold on shelves. The coffee roastery is a busy and exciting place, with a team of passionate coffee lovers working hard to bring the best possible coffee to customers. Whether you enjoy a rich, dark roast or a light and fruity blend, 92 Degrees has something for everyone, thanks to the careful attention to detail that goes into every step of the roasting process.
