Seasonal Espresso Blend


We’ve always believed in using coffees as close as possible to harvest and at this time of year we always look to Brazil and Rwanda for our espresso blend components. It is a blend of contrasts: Fazenda Capim Branco, from Brazil is a single farm of 232 hectares with its own processing mill, while Musasa Ruli is the central mill (or washing station), purchasing coffee cherries from some 2,100 farmers each owning around half a hectare of land.

In the blend, Fazenda Capim Branco brings body and nutty tones, while Musasa Ruli contributes an initial bright acidity and a fruity sweetness.
