Cerro Azul Natural
There are some coffees you need to have time and time again. The Cerro Azul natural is one of those coffees. One of our mainstay Super Specials, the Cerro Azul natural is a beautifully intense and complex coffee with notes of passionfruit, pomegranate, and lychee.
Grown at 1700 - 2000 masl, the high altitude gives a bright acidity; combined with moments of cooler temperatures and higher humidities it allows the cherries to mature slowly, producing more sugars and contributing to the coffee’s intense sweetness.
Cerro Azul Hybrid Washed
You’ve had the Cerro Azul natural, now is time for the Cerro Azul hybrid washed. Like being caressed in the face with the softest feather; face to feather with the sweetest, cleanest little chick - a soft, beautiful Gesha with floral jasmine notes, guaranteed to make you feel like you’re lying on a bed of the finest silk.
Sudan Rume Natural
It's been 7 years since Lex first sipped this Sudan nectar but he remembers it as if it was yesterday, “I remember this moment really well. I was cupping some coffee’s for competition, and this coffee was just astonishing.The name of the farm was Las Margaritas and I had heard about them because they were experimenting with many different varieties on a single farm, which was super interesting because it allowed us to taste the influence that variety had on the flavour of coffee. One of those varieties stood out. Sudan Rume.”
We’re still blown away by the extreme bright floral and herbal notes of this super clean natural coffee. If we could drink this every day we would. If we could change the water grid to produce litres of the finest brew of Sudan Rume we would. Please let us know if you can help.
“THE RAREST COFFEE IN THE WORLD,” yes, you read that right. We read that right too. Coffea racemosa, the rarest variety in the world. A vulnerable and protected species, this variety is cultivated in South Africa and grows at a maximum altitude of 600 masl - with an experimental process to boot.
“It’s like nothing you’ve ever tasted before,” real-life quote from Lex Wenneker, two time Dutch Barista Champion and one time Dutch Brewers Cup Champion. Well, what does “nothing you’ve ever tasted before,” taste like? Botanical, light, but intense at the same time - hope that’s clear.
An opportunity to taste something rare, different, and potentially a coffee that offers another future for specialty.
P.S. This was almost the coffee that Lex used in the Brewerscup this year… that’s enough reason to give it a go.
Colombia El Porvenir Gesha Natural
Lacia is one of those producers that catches you, their story and their vision is rooted in an authentic and generational approach to farming coffee - a family business that has been developed by 4 brothers - Lacia’s ethos is based towards innovation, quality, and maintenance of a high quality of life for their staff.
The Gesha variety we have from them this year is a natural process, coming from the municipalities of Pijao and Buenavista and nestled in the mountains at 1550 - 1750 masl. With some super funk, high acidity, dark chocolate and tropical notes, this coffee fits the profile of what we like to see in a natural Gesha.
