Every month, our resident Q Grader and third-generation Wogan, James, searches the world to find a coffee that is ‘weird and wonderful’, and truly excites. A micro-lot, a great back-story, an impressive cooperative, or a particularly unusual taste; once it's gone, it's gone.

We keep the prices of these extraordinary coffees down, so that you have the chance to try something that you might not be able to get your hands on otherwise.

The farm

Mr Ancelmo Vera has been a coffee farmer for around 25 years, managing his farm, El Cedro, in Huabal, located in the picturesque region known as El Paraiso. El Cedro spans 2.75 hectares, sits at an altitude of 1850 meters above sea level, and yields about 1.3 metric tons per hectare. Due to the high altitude, the coffee cherries ripen over an extended period, from late May to September.

Ancelmo shares his coffee growing knowledge with his family members who work on the farm. Over the last three years, they’ve focused on speciality coffee production, reinvesting the profits in improving their drying facilities, such as tents. These improvements help mitigate the unpredictable weather challenges faced during the coffee drying process, particularly during the harvest season.

El Paraiso is an ideal region for coffee cultivation, but its remote location presents challenges, including high transportation costs to Jaen for their coffee. Ancelmo and his family remain dedicated to producing quality coffee despite these obstacles.

our story

We, at Wogan Coffee, have been lovingly hand-roasting speciality, ethical, sustainable and traceable coffees since 1970. In our third generation, and a wholly independent family company, you can find us rooted in Bristol; the same city as when Mr Wogan established the business over fifty years ago. Laura and James, grandchildren of the bowler hatted gentleman, now have the ropes firmly in their grasp; James as our resident Q Grader in the Bristol Roastery Headquarters, and Laura in London.
