THIS IS PERFECT FOR:
Our house espresso is a modern take on a classic. It’s a blend of two distinctive coffees, which combine to produce an espresso with a deep, rich chocolatey body, pronounced toffee sweetness, a complex fruity edge, and a hint of bittersweet cocoa at the finish. It’s well balanced and combines beautifully with milk, where it adds punchy caramel, smooth milk chocolate notes and gets even sweeter.
The blend changes a few times a year, in order to best make use of changing coffee seasons in different parts of the world, but the sweet & smooth character of the blend remain the same. We roast more of this than any other coffee, and it’s a great intro to who we are and what we’re about.
70% Brazil Posses community, Yellow Catuai, pulped natural process
30% Colombia Cauca regional lot, Caturra & Catuai fully washed process
Grown by a community of farmers who sell their coffee together, this pulped natural lot from the community of Posses, near Machado in southern Minas Gerais give the espresso its deep rich chocolatey base, with a little punch from the pulped natural processing method. We roast it fairly light to keep the majority of the natural flavours, but drag out the roast time a little to give a pronounced creamy body and caramel character.
The sourcing project in Posses has been running for a few years, resulting in better quality, better prices and new markets for the farmers to sell to. It’s administered and facilitated by our friends at Legender Coffees, who run this model in several neighbouring communities.
Colombia Cauca regional lot:
Cauca state is one of the great Colombian coffee growing regions, and we’ve sourced several coffees from here in the past, as well as visited last year. This is a blend of coffees from small farms near Popayàn, processed via the fully washed method. It brings some fruit (melon sweetness, lemon acidity) and lashings of caramel to the blend.
