Single Origin Espresso
*Single origin rotates every few weeks*
We search the world constantly looking for the most exquisite coffees to roast for our espresso offerings. Often tiny amounts are discovered in far off places well off off the beaten track. We pay farmers well above market value for them then roast them in micro batches to show off the unique characteristics of the coffee. Best enjoyed as espresso as milk can hide a lot of the complex flavors.
Guatemala Santa Clara Natural
Descriptive Cup Notes:
Intensely sweet and fruit driven, with notes of plum, red wine gums, and hot strawberry jam.
This very small 330kg naturally processed micro-lot was produced by Ricardo Zelaya of Santa Clara Estate in Guatemala.
The Zelaya family has been growing coffee for over 100 years and four generations. This renowned family owns farms throughout Guatemala and grows one of only a handful of genuine ‘Antigua’ coffees (coffees grown in the Antigua valley area bounded by three volcanoes—Agua, Acatenango and Fuego). Finca Santa Clara is some 90 hectares in size and is located on the fertile southern slopes of the Volcán de Agua, in the Antigua Valley at 1,600–1,830 metres above sea level. The farm has been managed since 1988 by Ricardo Zelaya, the fourth generation of the Zelaya family to have produced coffee at Santa Clara.
