Exciting Coffee Updates!

It’s time to welcome some great new coffees to our line-up as well as say goodbye to some old favourites until they are back in season!

We now offer a North Peruvian Cloudforest coffee as well as a South Peruvian Plateau coffee.

  • North Peruvian Cloudforest

    Producer:  CENFROCAFE, San Ignacio, Peru.

    Roast Profile:  Full Medium, 391 degrees FahrenheitDetailed Flavour Profile:  Moderate sweetness with slight malic (apple) acidity and medium body.  Aromas are primarily in the roasted nut/roasted malt category with some raisin and honey.  This is quite versatile as it is excellent with dairy and quite tasty black.

    Roast Profile:  Medium, 386 degrees FahrenheitDetailed Flavour Profile:  Medium sweetness with medium, complex acidity and medium body.  The aroma profile is predominantly roasted nut but with quite apparent tropical fruit (blood  orange, mango) and floral elements.  Still dairy friendly while also much more complex for drinking black.

  • Papua New Guinea:

    Producer: Purosa, Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea

    Detailed Flavour Profile: “Dark” roast with maximum flavour complexity and controlled bitters. It has a bittersweet taste with a great molasses, charred oak, orange peel and smoky aroma with balanced bitters and quite a long aftertaste of charred oak and bitters.

We willl no longer carry the Honduran or the Colombian as they are out of season now. Don’t worry though, they will be back next July once they are in season again!
