Flavour Note: Dark Chocolate, Cherry Ripe, Cola

When we find a coffee that is not only flavoursome but also beneficial for the grower’s local community, just like this Burundi, we can’t help but get excited! The Nzove Washing Station pulls out all the stops when it comes to producing their coffee. They separate each lot to make sure the best coffees truly stand out, meticulously check their processes for quality, even sort the cherries by hand before they are pulped to create a more consistent product.

The station’s managers are also strongly committed to engaging with the local growing community. They work closely with young agronomy graduates, giving them positions in their washing station network to encourage the younger generation to study in this field. Drinking this incredible coffee is a great way to invest in the next generation of growers. That’s why we love a Burundi - and we know you will too!

Espresso Single Origin: Volcan Azul

$22.00

Country Of Origin: Costa Rica
Region: West Valley
Process: Red Honey

Varietal: Marsellesa
Altitude: 1500-1700
Farmer/Producer/Mill: Alejo Castro Khale
Flavour Note: Red grape, cherry, grape fruit

Volcan Azul is in a class of its own. Five generations of quality focused and conservationist minded coffee producers have created the unique experience that we get through this coffee today.

All facets of harvesting and processing happen in a meticulous way that allows them to have a high degree of control over quality and consistency. All coffee cherries are picked when they are at an ideal ripeness of between 22% and 28% brix (sugar content). Not only is the quality of coffee a focus but also the conservation of the surrounding lands.

They have acquired 1,500 acres of rainforest and dedicated it for preservation which helps in promoting biodiversity and reducing the effects of climate change.

Espresso Single Origin: Mihuti

$19.00

Country Of Origin: Kenya
Region: Mukurweini, Nyeri
Process: Washed

Varietal: SL-28, Ruiru11, Batian
Altitude: 1430
Flavour Note: plum, honeydew, grapefruit

This Kenyan coffee is proof that when we work together, we can create incredible results. In Kenya, the average farmer has only around one-quarter of a hectare to grow multiple crops. They often rely on support from cooperatives to purchase and produce coffee, which is where Mihuti comes in. Each season, the Mihuti Cooperative puts aside some funds to use as pre-financing for producers, so these farmers can invest in agronomy practices, cover their harvesting overheads, and ensure high-quality yields. Once the coffee is delivered in cherry form to Mihuti’s processing plant, each lot is de-pulped and fermented overnight. In the morning, the coffee is washed, placed on raised beds, and dried to the perfect moisture level over 7-15 days. The end result? A delicious coffee that is not only traceable but a testament to teamwork.

Just when you think we couldn’t find a better coffee for the Super Specialty program, boom! A geisha from La Esperanza in Colombia comes along!

This lot called Las Margaritas is a washed processed Geisha. Think super clean, complex fruits and balanced acidity. Geisha is a very high-quality variety of coffee that yields less fruit than more traditional coffee trees. It requires astute care and a distinct environment to flourish. At Las Esperanza, there is no lack of attention to detail and care given for such a special coffee to flourish. It starts with respect for the surrounding environment where more than 20% is devoted to a floral and fauna reserve to promote biodiversity. It continues with efforts to reduce water waste, which is a common problem with coffee farms. Using dry fermentation processes and utilising modern technologies they cut down the use of their most precious natural resource, water.

And no less important is the push to cut down on chemical fuels (diesel) and combustion fuels (wood, coal) that pollute the air. This is even more important in the immediate environment of where the coffee dries. So have a cup, take your time and enjoy the care that has been put into this very super special coffee.

Brew with love!
