Selection of 4 coffees with various origins, flavours and blends
If you like to try different coffees this could be for you.
Every month we will select 4 different coffees for you.
Mostly medium roast. Some may come from our present webshop offerings, some will not.
Your selection may contain some wet processed coffees, some dry processed, some fruity coffees, nutty, chocolaty etc.
Guatemalan Monte Flor - This comes from the same farm as our lovely Monte Rosa and is Rainforest Alliance certified.
Nueva Granada is a deep green coffee farm in San Marcos, nestled by the two tallest volcanos in Guatemala -- Tajumulco and Tacana. Powerful blue-lavender silhouettes, Tajumulco and Tacana stand dormant -- only their names rumble in the imagination. The coffee grows high on mountainous slopes in soil made rich by volcanic ash.
Nueva Granada uses its own clear spring water to pulp the coffee cherries. Two beans come from each red coffee cherry and they are washed and graded in running spring water, then dried slowly and evenly on patios and in low heat dryers.
This high grown arabica has similar chocolate notes to the Rosa but is a little brighter on the palate.
Again suits all brew methods
Kenyan Maganjo - This is a really beautiful washed and quite delicate coffee with aromas of blackcurrents. A sweet, clean, cup.
Suits all brew methods but shines in filter/cafetiere. It maybe a little acidic for espresso but it does squeeze out the lovely blackcurrent flavour. We don't have much of this coffee left so when it's finished we will replace with another from the Jungle Estate in Kenya.
Fire Dancer - A big favourite here with our customers on line and also in some coffee shops we supply. A big, well rounded hug in a mug from Papua New Guinea. Blend of medium roast and dark roast beans creating a big chocolaty/caramelly taste. This coffee is an organically grown coffee. Has a bitter sweetness as espresso but really smooth with milk. It does suit all brew methods.
Daterra Collection - They are the best coffees from the Daterra plantations and are completely processed using the Daterra Penta Process. Coffees that score 86-89, fully traceable and usually used as single origins.
This is a semi washed coffee. Complex florals and slightly fruity.
Daterra say: Aromatics that take the cupper to a secret garden filled with sweet delicate aromatics of lilies and jasmine. A well-balanced cup filled with raspberries, mango, nuts and caramel melt together to finish with a honey sweetness.
Hope you enjoy another little gem from these fab growers!
