Seasonal Espresso Blend 250g
With flavours of orange zest, cranberry, dried fruit and mixed spice, you could be forgiven for thinking this was a Christmas blend! We’ve used a washed Rwandan coffee from the BUF Remera washing station as the major component in the current incarnation of our espresso blend to bring those bright, juicy front-end notes in the cup. We’ve combined this with another washed coffee, Alto del Obispo from the Huila region of Colombia to create a smooth, lingering finish.
Both these coffees are grown by smallholding farmers. In the case of BUF Remera, the washing station purchases coffee from farmers who live in the local community. To make collection easier, BUF Remera have established a number of collection points with most farmers living within 3km of these.
In respect of Alto del Obispo, the coffee comes from 50 smallholding farmers who grow, harvest and process their own coffee before delivering it to an exporter who grades and sorts the coffee to the highest standards.
