this espresso blend tastes like chocolate, raisins & almonds – kinda like drinking a fruit‘n’nut chocolate bar!

bio: the real o.g. never one to follow. on-trend, in the know & the life of every party. loves to travel, seeks adventure, always surrounded by people. knows how to work a crowd. digs rap & hip-hop music.

this coffee packs a delicious punch. a perfect blend of Brazilian, Colombian & Honduran coffees, it has a super clean acidity, lingering sweetness & a creamy mouthfeel. adventurous, unique & a bit of a trailblazer – you can’t beat an original.

each of the origins for our o.g blend have been carefully sourced from the following farms:

bobolink: brazil.

origin: mococa, são paulo, brazil
processing method: natural
species: arabica
varietal: catuai, bourbon, mundo nuovo
elevation: 1000-1400m above sea level

fazenda ambiental fortaleza (meaning environmental fortress farm) has been owned by the Barretto family since 1850. Silvia inherited the farm in 2001 & together with her husband, Marcos, began to focus on becoming a socially, environmentally and economically sustainable business. they’ve also been past recipients of sustainability awards from the SCA.

the bobolink coffees are sourced from a network of family-run farms. the farmers all share a collective vision to produce the best coffees possible, using sustainable agriculture methods. faf offer their workers a 50% share of the coffees they plant to give each member a real sense of ownership. the coffee is selectively handpicked at its ripest to ensure flavour, sweetness & a clean cup. it’s then dried naturally, either in raised beds or on cement patios. fun fact: the bobolink project was named after the birds who migrate to the area every autumn.

this coffee is clean, complex & adds typical Brazilian profiles to the blend: creamy cocoa, big body, mild acidity & buttery caramel.

gran galope: colombia.

origin: narino, cauca, colombia
processing method: washed
species: arabica
varietal: castillo
elevation: 1500-2070m above sea level

this gran galope coffee comes from our friends at café imports. gran galope is an exciting new project, born from their desire to support small-scale producers from across the south-western regions who are consistently producing quality coffees on a much smaller scale. they pay premiums for these coffees based on cup scores, then bulk the lots together to make full containers of delicious, colombian coffee under the gran galope label. the farmers are far better off and coffee lovers all over the world get to enjoy their careful labour.

colombia boasts some of the most varied microclimates in the world, coffees from the narino region have more floral and fruity flavours when compared to other growing regions of Colombia and are typically prized for their citrusy notes. these coffees are all meticulously picked, sorted & graded, the uniformity of the coffee here is exceptional.

this colombian adds notes of citrus fruits, cane sugar, and a lively, vibrant acidity with chocolate & herbaceous undertones.

xinacla: honduras.

origin: chinacla, la paz, honduras
processing method: washed
species: arabica
varietal: catuai
elevation: 1500-1700m above sea level

this delicious lot comes from our direct-trade relationship with Marysabel Caballero and Moises Herrera, the husband and wife team behind the incredible El Puente estate. the Caballero family are third generation coffee growers who pioneered quality-focused coffee growing in the Marcala region & use the xinacla mill for their cluster of farms.

they are extremely well renowned, cup of excellence winning coffee growers and their attention to every small detail ensures they produce some of the very best coffee that Honduras has to offer. after the ripe cherries are picked, the coffee is pulped, fermented overnight & laid to dry on a combination of raised beds, patios & mechanical driers.

xinacla coffees are typically thick & syrupy, and add flavours of milk chocolate, toasted hazelnut & apricot to the blend.
