Espresso Single Origin: Sitio da Torre

$22.00

Country Of Origin: Brazil
Region: Mantiqueira de Minas
Process: Natural

Varietal: Catuai, Bourbon
Altitude: 1200
Flavour Note: Hazelnut, cherry, plum

This Brazilian offering hails from Mantiqueira: a unique growing region where high altitudes and fertile soil create perfect growing conditions. To produce this coffee to high standards, dedicated workers from Sitio Da Torre farm pay attention to every detail.

Mechanical picking is not always an option as the land is quite steep, so the beans are selectively hand-picked multiple times. This produces a more uniform crop, and results in a tastier cup of coffee. Sitio Da Torre is a member of the cooperative COCRAIVE, which aims to continue Brazil’s high standards by bringing micro-regions together to share ideas and knowledge.

The farm has produced coffees that have placed very well in past Cup of Excellence auctions. We value our work with them, and look forward to the coffees they produce in the future.

Espresso Single Origin: Chanya

$19.00

Country Of Origin: Malawi
Region: Misuku
Process: Washed

Varietal: Nyika, Geisha
Altitude: 1423
Flavour Note: White nectarine, mulled wine, dark chocolate

Malawi is regenerating its image as a well known coffee growing region after years of civil unrest; bringing us one of the more interesting coffees we've had on our program in a while.

This coffee is a unique mix of Nyika; Catimor (robust and high yielding) and Geisha (rare, delicate and low yielding) varieties. Processed with great care at the Chanya Washing Station, their coffee cherries are received from a group of farmers of which 26% are women. This is quite rare in coffee producing regions as it's known to be a male dominated industry. The quality found in this coffee stems from skillful harvesting practises such as selective picking, and the conditions in which farmers live and work. However, the most important factors being education and food security.

To round out the holistic and sustainable approach to coffee producing, these group of farmers also create their own organic fertilisers to re-use organic waste in the region and help improve overall harvest yields for years to come.

$22.00

Country Of Origin: Rwanda
Region: Nyabihu
Process: Washed

Varietal: Red bourbon
Altitude: 2000
Flavour Note: Blackberry, Plum, grapefruit

Rwanda is an exciting growing origin, responsible for some remarkable coffees with delicious taste profiles.

One area of note is the northern part of the country, where the Shyira washing station is situated. This region features a unique Rwandan microclimate, thanks to its very high altitudes and rich, volcanic soil. Shyira is owned by the Muraho Trading Company (MTCo): a group dedicated to bringing the best out of each farm they work with.

Passionate about people, MTCo helps farmers grow specialty coffee that gains the best buying price in the market, in order to sustain the farm’s future. Once the coffee is purchased, workers at Shyira put it through a rigorous sorting process. The beans are separated into three different grades according to density, so that when it is time for the fermentation and drying process, the overall cup quality is more easily controlled.
