Guatemala - La Florida | Washed
Colombia - La Union | Washed
Colombia - La Vergal | Decaf
El Salvador - Primavera Friends – Pacamara | Washed 
Brazil - Daterra Full Bloom | Natural
Honduras - Delmys Mereno | Pacas Washed
 

 Fruity and Sweet

These coffees are full of fruit notes and character.
Often natural or honey processed, this means more of the characteristics from the coffee cherry – think fruit and sugar - make their way into the cup.
 
Ethiopian - Melese Wolde Shantawane | Natural
Myanmar - Myay Ni Kone | Natural
Rwanda - Horizon Maraba Site | Natural
 
 

Light and Bright


These coffees have a strong, acidic backbone. They are likely a meticulously washed coffee, which means clean, clear flavour notes.
Ethiopian - Musa Abalulesa Oma Fontule | Washed
Colombia - Finca La Esmeralda - Yeny Pinchao | Washed
Burundi - Nyagishiru – Muyinga | Washed
 

 Exotic and Exciting

These coffees will be packed with intense and wild flavours and should elicit an appreciation for just how unique and intriguing a cup of coffee can be. Often containing exotic varietals or part of new or experimental processing methods such as anaerobic or yeast fermentation.
Colombia - Granja Paraiso 92 - Bourbon | Washed Anaerobic
Colombia - Granja Paraiso 92 - Sidra | Double Anaerobic (100g)
Panama - Carmen Estate Gesha Lot 1226 | Natural (100g)
 

Espresso

Our current go-to espresso that we are pulling in the shop is the Guatemala - La Florida | Washed. The Guatemala is straight-ahead chocolate and sweetness with a pleasing, lingering finish.
We also love pulling the Colombia - Granja Paraiso 92 - Bourbon | Washed Anaerobic. It's a full-bodied, creamy and funky espresso. High sweetness, juicy, with a candy-like finish. You'll still be able to experience these attributes in a short milk beverage.
