Small Batch on the road
Mexico - 2017
With the release of the delicious Yellow Honey from Hacienda Sonora in Costa Rica a few weeks ago we’ve had a few questions in our shops about what exactly honey processing is so Al thought this would be a good time to write a little about the process and it’s development in Brazil and then Costa Rica.
For most of us the word ‘barista’ is pretty new to our vocabulary. The idea that it takes more to prepare a cup of coffee than just add water and give it a stir is also relatively new. However, it has not taken long for speciality coffee to become part of our daily lives. How many people now start their day with a flat white rather than an instant coffee, or have lavished money on coffee gadgets and gismos that now take pride of place in our kitchen? As coffee culture has taken hold and established itself firmly in the UK (Brighton more than most perhaps) then we are starting to realise that it takes a high quality coffee combined with someone who knows what to do with it, if we are going to enjoy what we are drinking.
With the delicious La Espada y El Guamo from Nariño currently on our shelves and in our hoppers and with two more great Colombian coffees about to hit the stores we thought this would be a good time for Al to re-visit his sourcing trip to Colombia last November and tell you a little more about these great coffees and this re-born specialty origin….
Back in May, we headed out for our first trip to Rwanda. We have just released the first of three coffees we bought on the trip and it seems an apt time to examine how we are now working in Rwanda and why we want to increase our volumes and involvement in this great little country.
