Hacienda La Claudina (Colombia)

from 440.00
  • Producer: Juan Fernando Saldarriaga
  • Region: Antioquia
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Omni Roast
  • Altitude: 1320 – 1870 MASL
  • Process: Washed
  • Varieties: Castillo, Caturra, Bourbon
  • Flavor Notes: Tropical Fruits, Mandarin, Pecan

A sweet and round-bodied delight with enlivening notes of mandarin, tropical fruits and pecan nuts. This omni-roast brings great body and sweetness to an espresso while also holding great potential in filter brews with its scrumptious mixture of fruity and nutty flavors. Colombia grows the largest volume of washed Arabicas in the world and the country in general holds a great reputation globally. But we didn’t settle for just any Colombian coffee.

The Hacienda La Claudina is a highly reputed plantation located around 100km from Medellín. We picked this washed lot as the best after roasting and cupping a number of different lots from across the region (of various grades with different post-harvest processing).

Kilimbi Honey Red Bourbon (Rwanda)

from 550.00
  • Producer: Joseph Ntarindwa
  • Region: Nymasheke
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Omni Roast
  • Altitude: 1650 – 1850 MASL
  • Process: Honey Sun Dried
  • Varieties: Red Bourbon
  • Flavor Notes: Rooibos Tea, Red Apple, Champak

This is the first time we are bringing you a lot from Rwanda and we are thrilled that it is honey sun dried – the popular post-harvest method that has only been recently implemented in Rwanda and is attracting amazing feedback from roasters around the world. Furthermore, the varietal in this lot is Red Bourbon and it’s grown at a  staggering altitudes of 1650 – 1850 MASL which sets up a recipe for definite deliciousness. This coffee comes from Joseph Ntarindwa who runs the award-winning Kilimbi Washing Station – the first producers and exporters of honey processed coffees in the history of Rwanda.

Similar to other coffees in this region, you will get subtle tea-like and sweet herbal notes in your cup. Our omni roast sets up potential for great results in espresso and manual brew with the former requiring some experimentation from the brewer’s end to achieve the ideal levels of acidity and sweetness. As you grind your beans or first unzip your bag of ground coffee, immerse yourself in the very subtle and citric aroma of Magnolia Champaca (Champak). Rooibos tea and sweet red apple are notes to look out for in your cup that will have a medium tactile and a milk chocolate hint in the aftertaste. Our journey with Rwanda has just begun! We would love to have you join us on what promises to be a long expedition.

Kiri AA Top (Kenya)

from 610.00
  • Producer: Kiri Washing Station
  • Region: Mount Kenya, Kirinyaga
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Filter Roast
  • Altitude: 1450 MASL
  • Process: Washed
  • Varieties: Ruiru 11, SL 28, SL 34, Batian
  • Flavor Notes: Blueberry, Walnut, Concord Grape

We’ve explored several coffee origins around the world but Kenya remains one of our favourites. Producing some of the world’s most exotic tasting coffees, Kenyan lots are renowned for their exhilarating acidity, bright and clear floral and fruit notes with juicy body and pleasant nutty aftertastes. These beans are generally super-dense packing explosive flavours that are easy to bring out in your cup without the need for complex brewing recipes.

Kenya yields a biennial crop with the primary harvest between October and December and the second harvest between June and August. Our lot from the Kiri Washing Station in the Kirinyaga County was harvested in the primary season and arrived in India in February. We have spent over a month profiling it to ensure we deliver a coffee to you that is delicious, juicy, packed with exotic flavours and ready to make your palate explode. Manual brewing methods are best suited for this filter roast with our suggestions being Kalita, V60, Chemex and Aeropress. The coffee will also work as an espresso if you are someone who likes sparkling acidity and tangy, fruity and strong winey notes in your shot (make sure you experiment with grind size as this is a filter roast and it will require some dial-in patience to achieve the ideal shot).

Enjoy notes of blueberries and concord grapes bouncing of a juicy, lingering texture to end with an anti-climactic walnut finish. This coffee is made for all varieties of coffee enthusiasts with diverse preferences and is something you should definitely not miss. Slurp away!

Kiryama Red Bourbon (Burundi)

from 535.00
  • Producer: tib Coffee
  • Region: Muyinga
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Filter Roast
  • Altitude: 1500 – 1700 MASL
  • Process: Washed
  • Varieties: Red Bourbon
  • Flavor Notes: Rosehip, Black Tea, Grapefruit 

You’ve probably encountered coffee produced using the Burundi Washed process. We pondered: why not bring you a coffee processed this way directly from its place of origin? Floral, tea-like, and brimming with delicious citric acidity, this Red Bourbon from the Muyinga province in Burundi perfectly encapsulates the exotic flavor profile of Africa. Subtle hints of rosehip in the aroma provide a curious prelude to its syrupy texture. A prominent note of black tea with undertones of grapefruit leads to a crisp and clean finish.

This coffee was produced by tib Coffee (This is Burundi) in the Muyinga province in northern Burundi, a stunning hilly region with an average altitude of 1500 – 1700 MASL. Around 2000 farmers, with farms spanning 50 hectares, collaborate with the washing station. Coffee is pivotal to Burundi’s economy and serves as a significant source of income for families, supporting education and providing access to cash for housing construction. Kiryama derives from the verb “Kuryama,” meaning “to sleep” in Kirundi. Royal princes used to rest on this hill, finding respite before engaging in their customary activities in the region. They favored this hill, influencing Catholic missionaries to establish a parish where Italian priests resided for more than 20 years.

Terrazas Del Pisque – Bourbon Anaerobic Naturals (Ecuador)

from 780.00
  • Producer: Arnaud Causse
  • Region: Pichincha, Ecuador
  • Type: 100% Arabica
  • Roast Profile: Filter Roast
  • Altitude: 2100 MASL
  • Process: Anaerobic Fermented Naturals
  • Varieties: Bourbon
  • Flavor Notes: Lemon, Chocolate, Raspberry, Red Wine

Ecuador has been known for adopting Kenya’s methods of processing, producing mostly washed and double-washed coffees. Over the past decade, producers have been applying new methods of cultivation and processing, especially within the Loja region. We’ve seen an increase in Natural processed coffees coming from Ecuador which compliments the country’s clean, high-body cups with additional sweetness.

Finca Terrazas del Pisque is a 38-hectare farm of which 15 hectares are planted in coffee, the other available land is used for growing avocados and citrus fruits. Located in Ecuador’s Pichincha region, this farm boasts an annual production of almost 15,000 kg of specialty coffee a year. In this area of Ecuador, harvest happens nearly year-round and only the ripest cherries are selected for processing. Once picked, cherries are processed as Washed or Naturals, and sometimes fermented Anaerobically first. For anaerobic lots like this one, cherries are placed in a sealed environment and anaerobically fermented under controlled conditions before being placed on raised beds and finished using the natural drying process for an average of 28-40 days.

This lot expresses winey fruit acidity with scrumptious lemon, raspberry and chocolate notes. The Bourbon varietal is a Typica-related variety that is the result of a natural mutation of Typica-derivative coffees cultivated in Yemen and transplanted to Île Bourbon (now called Réunion Island).
