The Story

The coffees from the Salaverria family are classics on the Climpson menu and this marks the eighth consecutive year we have purchased coffees processed at their Las Cruces mill. Santa Julia is a lot separation of old Bourbon picked and processed at a deep red ripeness. Their washed process involves an overnight soak in clean water making for a crystal clean and vibrant cup profile.

Now into their 6th generation of coffee history, the JASAL daily operations have always been a family affair and are overseen by brothers Jose Antonio and Andres Salaverria. Their commitment to community initiatives is an obvious part of maintaining their loyal full time staff with education, housing and free healthcare offered. In a time when many producers are struggling with leaf rust and profitability the Salaverria’s are also investing in environmental measures with much of their production Rain Forest Certified and organic fertilisers used to protect the long term viability and quality of their coffee.
This care for their craft shines through with a smooth and balanced coffee tasting of honey, almond and dates. A perfect match for those frosty morning brews.

Our ambition is to continue sourcing, roasting and crafting the finest coffees from the heart of East London.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What date will my coffee be roasted?

    We aim to ship our coffee as fresh as possible, however you may receive coffee roasted up to 7 days prior to the shipping date.

  • What grind type should I choose?

    We offer multiple grind options from Cafetiere to Espresso and everything between. Our domestic espresso grind is slightly coarser and is perfect for home espresso machines, such as DeLonghi or Sage whereas the commercial espresso grind is better suited to commercial machines like La Marzocco or Sanremo. If you’re not sure what grind to choose please get in touch with our team at admin@climpsonandsons to see how they can help. Remember, pre-ground coffee is not an exact science and is only one of many brewing variables. For better brewing, why not take a look at one of our brew guides here https://climpsonandsons.com/blogs/brew-guides.

  • Can I order 1kg of coffee?

    This is not something we currently offer but why not consider helping us reduce packaging by ordering a 2kg bag instead? Wholebean coffee has a longer shelf life than you might think, up to 3 months!
