Kenya Peaberry is grown in the Nyeri region, situated in the Central Highlands of Kenya, where acidic soils provide the perfect conditions for coffee that is known for intense flavours and well-rounded aromas. The peaberry variety of bean, also known as 'caracoli', is created when a coffee cherry produces only one bean, as opposed to the usual two. This single, pea-shaped bean is separated from the regular 'flat berry' beans before roasting, which ensures a high-quality even roast, and, as the peaberry has absorbed all the goodness from the cherry, a fine quality and special liquoring is achieved. Around 5% of all coffee beans harvested are of the peaberry variety, and it is often said that, due to the round shape of the bean, it roasts more evenly for a fuller, smoother flavour. Kenya Peaberry makes for an incredibly flavoursome coffee, showcasing a fine acidity combined with a slightly fruity flavour.
Grown in the Sidamo Province of Ethiopia, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is among the best of the washed coffees: coffees that undergo a process before roasting, whereby the cherry of the bean is removed before the bean itself is dried. Washed coffees benefit greatly from this process, as once the cherries are immersed in water, unripe ones will float and be removed from the process, while ripe ones will sink and be used. This ensures the highest quality beans in each batch. Legend has it that the coffee plant was discovered in Ethiopia by a 9th century goatherder, and to this day the humble coffee bean remains an integral part of the Ethiopian economy. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is a smooth, mild and great tasting coffee that can be enjoyed straight from the cafetiere all though the day, with a distinct fruit-like acidity that adds a pungent addition to the traditional mocha flavour.
This strong Indonesian coffee comes from Sumatra, the second largest of the Indonesian islands, and is considered among the finest examples from the region. Indonesia itself is the fourth largest coffee producer in the world, and the longitude and latitude of the country make for particularly well suited micro-climates in producing a diverse, flavoursome variety of beans. In fact, depending on the region, Indonesian coffees are known to be imbued with flavours of cocoa, smoke, cedar wood, earth and tobacco, and there are varieties of both arabica and robusta beans produced in great quantities. Our Blue Sumatra is smooth and aromatic, with a well balanced spiciness that is typical of Sumatran coffees, while a full body and a little acidity provides a delightful hint of intensity, making this a pleasure to drink from a cafetiere, filter, or as an espresso.
This blend of Indonesian Java and Brazilian Santos creates a wonderfully strong coffee that's full of flavour, but without any bitterness. Java, or Kopi Jawa as Indonesians refer to it, is typically a strong, slightly sweet coffee, and it works wonders here with the light-body and low acidity of Santos. The balance of flavours creates an indulgent blend that's best enjoyed as an espresso, but can also be used in a cafetiere or as a base for your favourite filter coffees.
This blend offers up all the delicious fruity notes of some of our stronger blends, but in a medium strength that will help you to blissfully unwind at the end of the day. The luxuriously smooth texture and rich flavours of our Lazy Days blend are ideal for cafetiere and filter coffees, and will turn your silky lattes, milky Americanos and creamy cappuccinos into delightfully comforting, mellow brews, perfect to enjoy as you put your feet up and indulge in some much-deserved relaxation.
This high grown coffee has a wonderful fruity and floral taste, with a sharp acidity and a subtle chocolate finish. Coffee is one of the largest agricultural exports of Peru, with approximately 200,000 small farms spanning the country from north to south, producing high quality arabica beans.
Papua New Guinea
Coffee in Papua New Guinea is mostly cultivated in the country's five highlands provinces; Western Highlands, Eastern Highlands, Simbu, Morobe and East Sepik. As a relatively small producer of coffee, Papua New Guinea generally sources its harvested beans from small land holdings, or 'coffee gardens', owned by farmers, which are located largely in isolated areas that do not require synthetic fertilisers or pesticides. Our Papua New Guinea coffee has a distinctive chocolate and nut flavour, with a pungent and fruity finish of mango and papaya, and is made from beans that have been hand picked and sun-dried to ensure that these full flavours are locked in.
The coffee industry in Guatemala began to develop in the 1850s, with small plantations flourishing. Cultivation of coffee and the country's coffee industry was given a sizeable boost during the Liberal Revolution of 1871, when goals of modernisation and trade improvements caused the bean to become an especially important crop. To this day coffee remains one of Guatemala's main exports, along with sugar, textiles and bananas. The particular bean used in our medium and mellow Dark Maragogype is known as the 'Elephant Bean', which, as its name suggests, is selected because of its larger size. The Elephant Bean, grown in higher, temperate regions, produces a coffee that is smoother and richer in flavour than standard arabica beans, combined with a slight acidity, resulting in an all-round coffee that can be enjoyed from cafetiere or filters, or as a punchy espresso.
