Los Rosales, Colombia 300g
Named after the beautiful and fragrant roses that are grown on the farms in the region, Los Rosales is a lovely field blend of coffees from a group of 19 producers in the picturesque Buesaco and Tablon de Gomez municipalities of the Western part of the Narino department of Colombia. Grown on small family-run farms with a unique microclimate ideal for cherry maturation, each of these lots combine to create a coffee that's super balanced yet complex with tonnes of flavour intensity and depth of sweetness. Look for brown sugar and slightly tropical aromatics that lead to velvety texture and notes of papaya, brown sugar and red grape.

The Detour Story
Detour was born in 2009 in a back alleyway in Dundas, Ontario. One of Canada’s earliest specialty coffee roasters, the brand was built on the idea that coffee should be more than just mindless morning fuel. Our founder, Kaelin McCowan, believed that if he sourced and secured the highest quality green coffees in the world, and roasted fresh to order, people would fall in love with what’s in the cup. Nearly a decade later our mission remains unchanged. We continue to strive to elevate coffee and act as industry leaders through ongoing experimentation and development.
We go far and wide for our beans, visiting the source directly to develop sustainable, quality-focused relationships with the world's best farms and specialty coffee leaders. These relationships are built on mutual respect and a commitment to creating the best coffee.
By traveling to where it grows, we are able to build connections with the mills, exporters and farmers themselves to better understand and source our favourite coffees. Ultimately, we look for people that love coffee as much as we do.
Careful roasting highlights the character of each coffee and balances all the flavours.
We roast fresh-to-order and constantly monitor and adjust to match the perfect profile every time. Time and temperature are critical. It can come down to seconds. Too dark and the character of the coffee can be lost. Too light and the flavours are underdeveloped, sour; we’re leaving behind the coffee’s potential by dropping it from the roaster too soon.
We're a little obsessed– always experimenting and tinkering. Our roasters are passionate about coffee to the point of mild insanity. Which is just how we like it.
