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 Special
Akmel Nuri's farm looks more like a forest than anything else. Following organic principles, the coffee trees grow wild in the thick forest, with shade trees bending beautifully over the coffee trees, protecting them and providing nourishment.
Akmel's coffee is natural processed, meaning that the entire coffee cherry is dried, until the pulp is a hard shell. It gives the coffee more body and a lower acidity than the washed process.
Halo is part of the family-owned company Metad, run by three brothers; Aman, Tariku and Michael. They share a clear devotion to helping farmers produce better quality and implement sustainable practices. The coffee is certified organic and Metad offer education and technical assistance to the farmers.
Jamie Casallas own the farm El Prado with 4 Ha coffee trees. He mostly grows the Arabica variety Caturra, which is very sweet and round. Jamie’s farm is at 1.560 meters elevation.

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 Muriuki. 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 2017.
Tegu is a wet mill located between Mount Kenya and the Aberdare mountains. We've visited Tegu since the first time we were in Kenya in 2007. We're happy to be able, again this year, to present this amazing coffee. The wet mill is managed by Michael Mwangi. Here, the freshly picked coffee cherries, of the SL28 and SL34 varieties, are delivered and then processed by the washed method.
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.
