An easy drinking chocolate and cola body alongside stone fruit flavours. The perfect everyday filter blend suited to batch and hand brewers.
Blue Note Filter is our house filter blend. Perfect for all manner of filter brewing it is designed to be balanced, approachable and consistent.
This edition of Blue Note is made up of two washed coffees from Finca Rabanales in Guatemala and the Kochere washing station in Gedeo, Ethiopia.
Rabanales is located in Fraijanes just outside of the city limits of the capital, Guatemala City. The farm is over 150 years old and produces many interesting varieties of coffee as well as strawberries and other fruits. We are using a mix of their bourbon and pacamara lots in this blend. Raffa Ventura has an interesting method of processing. Cherries are delivered to the mill at the end of the day and left to begin fermentation in the fruit over night before being pulped the following morning.
Kochere is an area of the Gedeo Zone in the famous Yirgacheffe region in southern Ethiopia. Both natural and washed coffees from this area are some of the most sought after in the world and the washed coffees from Yirgacheffe are known for their intense stone fruit and floral flavours.
We serve Blue Note on batch brew everyday in our cafes, it’s a very approachable filter blend and complements the rotating single origins we offer alongside.
