Flavour: Roasted hazelnut with peach and caramel.
This espresso blend is made up of two delicious coffees, both produced in South America by farmers who are deeply experienced and talented, and who are committed to passing on their knowledge and support to other farmers in their communities.
55% of the blend is made up of São Judas Tadeu, produced by Antonio and Terezinha Rigno de Oliveira in Brazil. The couple's coffees have been recognised with numerous awards, including many top ten placements in the Cup of Excellence competition. The pair have been farming near their town of Piata for over 40 years and Antonio serves as a mentor for many in the community. “The people in Piata are like my family,” he told us. “I want to help them produce great coffee. It’s my duty and my joy.”
45% of the blend is made up of El Fuerte, produced by the Rodriguez family in Bolivia. The family's farms are some of the most beautiful and meticulously organised we've seen, and they produce exceptional quality and yields. The Rodriguezes, too, are committed to supporting their local coffee community. To this end they founded Agricafe, an ethical business that trains farmers in best agricultural practices, in order to improve the output – and livelihood – of specialty coffee producers in Bolivia.
Together these two coffees create an espresso blend that has notes of roasted hazelnut, peach and caramel. This Seasonal Espresso tastes delicious both with and without milk.
