Arabica coffee (the super-coffee) is grown throughout the jungles of Central and South America, as well as in the Caribbean islands. Coffee is often grown at high altitudes in volcanic soil which gives the beans a brightness and sweetness, and taste varies from light-bodied coffees in Central America to heavier-bodied in South America.
Africa is hailed as the birthplace of coffee, and Arabica coffee (the super-coffee) is grown throughout East Africa on the slopes of the continent’s highest mountains, to escape the intense heat of the African sun. Taste and character vary widely from country to country, but generally, citrus and berry flavours as well as winey and spicy notes are associated with these regions.
While single-origin coffees are justifiably lauded for their distinct and traceable flavours, creating blends allows us to combine the superior qualities of our best single-origins. This gives us the opportunity to play, test, taste, repeat – to produce a near-perfect balance of sweetness, body and acidity.
Every now and again we will release boxsets of super incredible, but limited amounts of coffee. We will use these boxsets to also educate on the various aspects of coffee. There is so much to to learn about coffee, we are learning all the time, and we want to share as much as we can!
