“Shangri-la” is the name of a utopian paradise described in James Hilton’s novel ‘Lost Horizons’ from 1933. In the mountains west of El Salvador is an award winning coffee farm with the same name. It is powered by the farmer Juan Carlos Gregg Meza who at the age of 24 years, inherited it from his grandfather Pedro. The coffee from Shangrilá was Cup of Excellence Award winner in 2007, 2009 and 2015 and represents some of the best coffee from El Salvador. This coffee has flavors that we think work very well for the holidays.
In a ‘stabbur’ on Hjelseng farm in Stjordal, Norway we have our own little paradice. Here we do what we love and do best, and now we have been fortunate enough to roast this exquisite coffee to you. Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Langøra Coffee Roasters are based in a little red ‘ Stabbur ‘, a traditional storehouse at Hjelseng Farm in Stjørdal, Norway. We select and purchase traceable speciality coffees, in season, with characteristic flavour profiles that excite us.
The quality of coffee depends on factors such as region, terroir, variety and processing. Together they contribute to form each coffee’s unique flavour. Through the roasting process the team at Langøra wish to highlight these characteristics, so that the natural flavours and aromas of the coffee are preserved.
