ROASTERS NOTES:

Our every-day filter blend suited to all filter styles. Milk chocolate, sweet citrus and floral vanilla flavours.

Blue Note is the perfect everyday filter coffee; easy drinking and suited to all batch and hand brewers. This latest edition is made up of washed coffees from Peru, Rwanda and Guatemala

From El Salvador the orange bourbon lot from Fernando Alfaro at Finca El Carmen is a coffee we have been buying since 2011. We love the light and floral orange and vanilla flavours this coffee shines with every year and this lot has become a staple of our single origin and blends over the years.

From Rwanda, this is our second year buying from the Shyira washing station in the northern Nyabihu region of Rwanda. Shyira is one of the highest washing stations in the country and buys cherry from some farmers with coffee above 2000m. The effect of this is a complex, and refined coffee that adds depth and clarity to the blend.

Finally, from Guatemala again we have a small amount of the famous Geisha variety from Finca San Jeronimo Miramar in Atitlan region. Geisha is perhaps the most expensive coffee variety on the planet due to its exceptional cup profile and low yielding trees. While it is not normal to use geisha in a blend like this, we love to use a small percentage in the blend to boost the acidity, complexity and sweetness of the blend- like sprinkling a little salt on to a finished dish!
