Combination of:
Espresso  - Brazil -Alta Mogiana-Fazenda Morada da Prata
65%
Fazenda Morada da Prata is located in Batatais -Apothecary.png

Fazenda Morada da Prata is located in Batatais, with 1575 total hectares, more than 500 preserved as natural reserves and 149 planted with coffee. The fertile soil of the Alta Mogiana region offers the ideal climate for producing specialty coffee.

In 2017 Fazenda Morada da Prata won third place in the Alta Mogiana Specialty Coffee contest with a score of over 90 points. The farm’s high level of coffee quality traces back to 1879 when Henrique Dumont acquired the property. Dumont invested in a series of production innovations converting the farm into one of the most modern in South America, with five million coffee trees, 96km of train rails, and seven locomotives, which earned him a reputation as “The King of Coffee.” The farm is now managed by Henrique’s great granddaughter Maria Helena, the fourth generation to manage the farm’s coffee production.

Espresso - Colombia - Wilmar Matoma - Finca El Guamo
35%
Colombia - House blend Apothecary.png

Wilmar Matoma’s coffee plantation, Finca El Guamo, is located deep in the mountains between the town of Gaitania, and snow-capped Nevado del Huila volcano. Rich in volcanic soil, and 500m hike uphill from the nearest dirt road, the trek takes approximately an hour, while Wilmar insists it’s a 20 minute journey.

 

Until last year, Wilmar has never seen his coffee sold as a microlot coffee, allowing him to earn a quality premium for the first time in his lifelong career as a farmer. He insists on maintaining less productive, traditional varietals that require more maintenance. Seen as a foolish idea, the resulting coffee tastes exquisite, proving Wilmars wisdom in coffee.

 

The aromas of sweet citrus accompany flavours of apricot and jasmine. The acidity is vibrant with a silky like feel we can only describe as refined and delicate.

Brazil- São Silvestre

These perfect conditions, combined with meticulous crop management, forward-thinking crop planning and post-harvest selection, mean the final result from Andrade family farms are award- winning coffees; known both nationally and internationally as some of the best coffee the country has to offer.

Peru- Apolinar Arevalo

Apolinar Arevalo makes some incredibly tasty coffee, and we’re committed to seeing him succeed! Apolinar Arevalo is the picture of a typical Peruvian coffee farmer. His life and work story the norm rather than a singled out exception. His coffee, however, is a little different. This is why we travelled the long, often arduous journey to see him. Travelling by taxi up steep mountains, riding less than ideal cable cars, and finally hiking steep terrain just to see him.


Roast Style: Omni Roast

Varietals: Yellow Caturra
Process: Natural
Altitude: 2000m above sea level
Flavour Notes: Fresh Cherries & Brown Sugar
