great days start with great coffee
Our house espresso is currently a fully washed South American blend, comprising of 70% Brazilian Gerezim and 30% Colombian Huila Saladoblanco. Our Brazilian Gezerim is grown by the Caixeta family, who have been farming coffee for generations, spanning over 160 years. Their estate sits 1000-1250 metres above sea level, with deep soils rich in organic matter. Workers at the farms have fair wages, are given good housing and the Caixeta family are always looking to develop the ecological, educational and sustainable principles that lie at the heart of the farms philosophy. Our Colombian coffee is a blend of beans farmed around the salado blanco, operada and pitalito regions, processed via the fully washed method. It brings some fruit flavours (melon sweetness, lemon acidity) and lashings of caramel to the blend.
Great coffee needs careful Roasting in order to give credit to all the hard work that’s gone into the process of getting these beautiful beans halfway across the globe and into your cup. Our good friends at neighbourhood coffee source all of our coffee, creating balance when they roast; Sweetness, acidity, complexity, but most importantly they let their coffee tell a story of where it’s from, and to showcase the things that make it so distinctive. Our house blend is roasted fairly lightly to keep the majority of the natural flavours, but dragging out the roast time a little to give a pronounced creamy body and caramel character. The team at Neighbourhood work tirelessly throughout the year to tweak profiles, timings and tasting to ensure optimum flavour of every bean.
