Transcend Coffee & Roastery
The extended Moreno family has been a lodestar in the coffee-growing communities on the Santa Barbara mountain. After being invited to accept a Cup of Excellence award on behalf of a neighbour in 2005, Miguel Moreno became convinced that growing high-quality coffee and selling for higher prices would provide a sustainable income and brighter future for his extended family. 14 years later, the Moreno family name is synonymous with exceptional Santa Barbara coffee. His nephew Duvis is one of his many family members who is growing the coffee community in Santa Barbara. He owns 1 Manzana (or three-quarters of an acre) of land at roughly 1630 meters and grows nothing but pacas. He mills his coffee at the family micro-mill and has started to experiment with fermenting the freshly depulped seeds in bags. 2018 was the first year that he entered the Cup of Excellence competition and he placed 12th using this method. Because he entered the COE, he only had a very small amount leftover to sell to us last year. Thankfully this year he has decided to sell all of his coffee to us and we are so grateful because it was one of our favourites.
