Organic September has arrived. We’re so lucky to work with farmers, big and small who farm using organic methods. From leaving leaf litter in the soil to preserve moisture, to protecting endangered animals on their farms. This month, we’re bigging up our organic farming champions.
Soil association approved and fully certified. Our organic espresso comes from an organic farm in the San Marcos region of Honduras.
Coffee is handpicked by skilled workers who are provided housing and medical care. After processing, the pulp from the coffee cherries is recycled as compost and reused on the farm.
Those big chocolate flavours! Natural sugars in the coffee caramelize during roasting giving this punchy espresso it’s delicious sweetness. Magic with milk where it softens with notes of caramel and hazelnut.
Remarkable coffee and a remarkable story. Grown by small scale farmers in an organic & fairtrade co-operative high in the mountains of northern Peru – one of the most rural growing conditions in the world.
Through the co-op, farmers have the machinery, drying facilities and training needed to improve the quality (and yield) of their crop, transforming their livelihoods.
Blended with the ever faithful and fruity Colombian Marianella, This remarkable coffee becomes our classic, Rocket Espresso. Big-bodied, smooth sweetness and a bold mouthfeel.
Roasted to a style that enhances the intense sweetness of this coffee, with notes of brown sugar, stewed stone-fruit & a nutty finish.
We found this year’s Dr Strangelove on Finca San Carlos. A farm in El Salvador using organic farming methods to provide incredible growing conditions and care for the environment – the farm is treated as a nature reserve.
Coffee trees are shade grown and leaf litter is left to accumulate, preserving moisture and helping the soil absorb more nutrients.
Adventurous yet accessible. Vibrant fruit flavours and bold sweetness make this coffee in easy leap into the world of exciting single origin coffees.
A delicious decaf grown by a collective of smallholders between the Eastern Andes and the Marañón river.
Since 2014 the group has offered education and organic certification to member farms. By working together they are finding new ways to overcome some of the challenges presented by climate change in this region.
Strong nutty flavours. Sweet flavour notes of molasses and dates. Complex, delicious and can be enjoyed by anyone, at any time of day.
When Finca Santa Teresa said they needed someone to help cup fifty geisha coffees, founder David was on the next plane. Surrounded by rainforest, the farm is adjacent to a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to a number of endangered animals.
It is active in protecting its surrounding environment, recycles coffee waste as fertiliser and is in the midst of a full conversion to solar power.
The Lot 39 Espresso is wonderfully complex with a flavour profile of victoria plum, black olive and cocoa nib.
The No 4 Espresso is sweeter and more floral. Strong citrus and floral notes dominate the aroma. The roasting process adds further sweetness with notes of milk chocolate and buttery caramel. Delicious.
