Roaster’s coffee

Los Vascos is a community lot made up of a small collection of farms near Bilbao in Colombia. The farms that make up this coffee are incredibly similar—usually only a couple hectares or so in size and all family run, the producers create a coffee with the same signature soft acidity and round sweetness. Each producer’s small lots are pooled together based on their flavour profile which is identified at the daily tastings held at the co-operative mill. This lot was created specifically to be a crowd pleasing easy to drink coffee, something everyone will love.

The Donna espresso blend is our nod towards a more traditional coffee flavour. We find coffees that have the inherent characteristics of deep chocolate, with low acidity and lots of body. We then roast a little darker than our other coffees, to the point where the natural sugars are browned to a dark caramel quality. Donna tastes robust and strong but still allows the natural characteristics of the Brazil Caldas and Colombia Popayan to shine through.

Certified organic by the Soil Association, this version of our George St. Blend is 100% direct trade, meaning we worked directly with the producers or co-operative to ensure a sustainable supply chain. Strong enough to shine through milk, George St. is carefully roasted to highlight the coffee’s robust, natural flavors. This version of our mainstay blend was created by blending two coffees from producer co-operatives: the Colombian Los Vascos and a Rwandan coffee called Sholi. Together, they create a coffee that is a crowd-pleasing combination of sweetness and strength.
