This coffee is an everyday coffee. In espresso, the dried peach and nutty flavours of the coffee combine so well, and there’s a real hint of dark cocoa in the finish. The toffee and orange citrus are the main features of the filter coffee. It’s light, breezy and effortless. I could drink a whole cup and still go back for more!

When first tasting this cup, I was gladly met with that big and bold coffee I had come to expect from my first experience with Las Lajas, when my colleagues returned from Costa Rica a few years ago. I was excited to find the same complexities in the cup. A bright winey acidity that evens out with a chocolate orange finish. Massive body! Super sweet yet creamy and smooth.

This coffee is as comforting as sunshine lazily beaming through the curtains on a Sunday morning. I really love how the darker sticky caramel and toffee notes are complemented by sweet, bright apricot and sparkling mandarin acidity. It has a decadent, creamy hazelnut profile, and a silky smooth texture. Sounds like the kind of brekky I want to be invited to.

I was asked why I’m such a big fan of the Ethiopia Sidamo Damo and the answer is simple - this coffee exemplifies everything I love about high quality Ethiopian coffees and particularly, natural process cup profiles. It is clean, sweet, incredibly well balanced and bursting with tropical fruit, berry and milk chocolate notes…sprinkled with some rose petals, of course.

You may notice the round unique shape of the beans when you open the bag. This is a peaberry (PB). The PB coffee plant grows a single round curled bean inside the coffee cherry instead of the regular two beans with a flat side. This PB is also a size and grade for this particular coffee from Kirinyaga.

Coffee has been Brazil’s largest export since the 1830s, when the country was producing around 30% of the world’s coffee. Around a decade later, the country became the foremost producer in the world, and it has remained as the number one coffee producing country for over 150 years.

Brewing this was such a treat. It offered such a clean, light, endlessly drinkable cup. For me, I found strawberries and rose petals. Being a naturally processed coffee, there was the characteristic fermented quality, creating a rosé like drink, acceptable to consume just after the sun has risen.

"The first sip of this coffee exemplifies everything I love about a washed Colombian. On second sip, the Nestor Lasso begins to reveal its subtle character: a cherry-like tartness balanced with a delicate pomegranate acidity, topped with the soft smokiness of black tea."

Marcos Ramos’ beautiful fruit is grown in what is now known as Gaitania, Planadas, Tolima in Colombia. The ancient name for this region was Tala, Bocanegra, meaning something like the ankle/heel/foot, and the black-mouth. Presumably this relates to its situation in the foot-hills, and the black mouth refers to the bottom of the valley.
