We strive to show distinctive, characteristic coffees that complete all corners of the flavour universe in coffee. Accordingly, we do not merely carry coffees from a variety of countries. All coffees have been traded in direct contact with the farmers, with full traceability, fresh harvests, some from single fields – and all of them with fantastic flavours in common.
Akmel Nuri bought his farm in 2002 after saving for it for years. He follows organic principles for growing the coffee with lots of wild forest surrounding the farm. Ethiopia is the birthplace of Arabica coffee, and the only place for coffee to grow wild. Therefore it’s wild and unknown heirloom varieties grown here.
As a part of our colombian micro lots this year we introduce a coffee from the little farm Las Delicias, run by Duber Rojas and his family. They only produce 3,5 tons every year but they are extremly meticulous with the quality.
Finca Buena Vista
Finca Buena Vista is owned by the Rodrigues family who has been central in the development of speciality coffee in Bolivia. This organic coffee was harvested in Aug-Sep 2016 by ten farmers in the Copacabana area, near the town of Caranavi. The farmers deliver cherries to the Finca Buena Vista wet and dry mill to be depulped, fermented and washed with great meticulousness.
The Gathugu mill is located near the city of Karatina in one of the worlds best coffee areas. Last year John Mwai Muthee acquired the management of the mill and with him the quality has taken a quantum leap.
Situated in the heart of Kenya, between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare mountain range, the land around Kieni is lushy green with deep red soil beneath.
The Kieni wet mill is part of the Mugaga society and managed by Josphat Kariuki. We’ve visited and bought from them every year since 2010 and continue to be impressed with their very high quality. This lot is of SL28 and SL34 varieties and was harvested in November 2016.
Our two espresso blends are composed of coffees from the farmers above and always transparent in their composition. Like a chef loves to play with ingredients to create flavors, we blend for espresso to present two very different and unique experiences.
This is our take on a completely wild, aromatic and juicy espresso. With this blend we let ourselves go a little crazy in order to create the best espresso ever. Roasted with a light espresso profile so that the flavors and fruity tastes really come into play
Espresso 2 is composed of coffee from three producers that we buy directly from. All three coffees are cultivated with incredible meticulousness resulting in a very clean and sweet taste. We're roasting the coffees individually with a medium-dark espresso profile to achieve an optimal balance between aroma, sweetness and acidity.
