Our Baby Girl arrived on the 6th June!!
To celebrate I have sourced one of the best coffees I’ve ever tasted, a Geisha Natural from Costa Rica.
Baby Girl’s name was kept a secret until she arrived.
Now I can tell you that her name is Liliana and we are completely in love!
I am so proud to be able to offer this mind blowing coffee to you. I tasted the first test roast on Sunday 12th May. It was an emotional experience 🙂
THERE ARE VERY FEW BOXES LEFT!!
R200 - 150g box
The Wolichu Wachu wash station processes the coffee from 4500 smallholder farmers.
Typically we would expect heirloom varietals from Ethiopia, but with these Red Bourbon and Typica varietals we experience a clean cup and winey acidity.
This naturally processed coffee delights with white florals, blueberries and red grape sweetness.
Light, sweet and delicious.
Shyira 19 Microlot
Shyira Coffee Wash Station is located high up in the hills in the Nyabihu District where the famous Virunga Volcanic National Park is located. Home to the mighty Mountain Gorillas.
Shyira is one of the smallest and highest CWS in the country at 1850 MASL. It was built purposefully small so that production could be focussed on top micro lots and coffee flavour profiles never before produced in Rwanda.
This year Muraho Trading Company paid for farmer’s health insurance, and continued to invest in education and tools for better agricultural practices helping to increase yields, quality and income.
We love this coffee as espresso and filter. Expect winey acidity, blackberry sweetness and a lingering lemongrass finish.
Vunga Lot 3
Woman are awesome!
Especially the woman who run the Vunga Cooperative in the Nyabihu District, North Western Region of Rwanda. After a landslide wiped out half the wash station the day before harvest began this year, they got stuck in and produced some incredible coffee anyway.
We are proud to play our part in the story of the Vunga Co-Op. Expect your mornings to be brightened with notes of marmalade, peaches and caramel.
The New Gatanga Co-Op is responsible for this mouth watering Kenyan. Located in Kiambu County, Kiambu meaning “place of many drizzles”, this coffee was blessed with incredible growing conditions.
Jammy blackberries, delicate florals and a winey acidity. If you’re a fan of Kenyan coffee, you’re in the right place.
Ana Sora Natural
Ethiopia is the birth place of coffee. There are so many varieties of coffee growing wild that more often than not, the exact varieties are unknown. Thats where you’ll see “heirloom” used to describe the various varieties in a lot.
In Ethiopia, Single Estate coffee is quite rare and this is the first time we are buying coffee from Ana Sora. We absolutely love this naturally processed coffee and we’re sure you will too!
Beautifully floral and sweet. Expect juicy blueberries and ripe cherries.
Burundi Migoti Lot 31
We are thrilled to have Migoti Lot 31 on our menu! Not only will we offer it as a single origin, it will also form a key component of The Friendly Blend over the next few months.
Migoti makes for an incredible espresso. It has become a quick favourite for my morning pour over, will one of the most pleasant acidity profiles I’ve tasted in a while.
Great for espresso and pairs well with milk.
Expect crisp green apple and sweet white peach.
The Friendly Blend
Thats how we feel every time we pull a shot with our signature specialty espresso blend.
The components change as specialty coffee lots are small and seasonal but the goal remains the same. Approachable, sweet and delicious.
Current origins: Guatemala microlot, Burundi Migoti and Rwanda Gatare
