Saija | Caturra by Amparo Botina - Colombia



The latest from Saija in Victoria, British Columbia.

Saija is just the type of micro roaster we love. 

Partners Sage and Aija are the reason why we love coffee and the industry it brings. Passionate people, creating incredible things.

Happy to be able to introduce them to Toronto. 

Clean, crisp, lightly roasted incredible coffee - perfect.

Welcome to KNIFE, Saija Coffee.



An immediate presentation of rich sweetness and vibrant acidity sits atop a pleasant and weighted mouthfeel, adding structure and balance to the cup. You'll find notes of ripe peach, sweet orange, caramel, and hibiscus. 

Variety & Processing

Coffee cherries of the Caturra variety are harvested, washed and fermented for 16-20 hours before being shade-dried on raised drying beds for 12 days.
