Speciality

Welcome to our new Speciality range of coffees. These are premium, single origin coffees of a very high quality, with quite distinctive aroma and taste.  Whilst some of these coffees are readily available, many others are so special that they are in very limited supply, so once they are gone they are gone!  Speciality Coffee is an exciting and growing area of the coffee market, which offers you the opportunity to taste some truly exceptional coffees and to broaden your repertoire.

Many growers are keen to grow and promote these coffees. Because of their high quality they are able to attain a higher price for their coffee, which of course makes it more expensive for us to buy and sell to you.  But the positive side of this is that the growers can increase their income, which benefits the local families and the economy.

Brewing Guide

Most of our Speciality coffees are medium to dark roasted. This makes them suitable to be brewed using most brewing methods such as Bean-To-Cup Machines, Electric Espresso Machines, Moka Pots / Stove Top Espresso Pots as well as Filter and Cafetiere methods of brewing coffee. Please check each coffee for details.

Smooth & Rich

In the south of Ecuador, on an idyllic plateau surrounded by the mighty Andes Mountains, lies the small village of Vilcabamba. From Quechua, the language of the Inca, the name Vilcabamba translates as “Holy Valley”. This area of Ecuador is quite unique.

Then the coffee is slowly sun dried and hand sorted. Only small quantities of this coffee are produced each year, as it is cultivated primarily through manual labour and through family businesses producing this wonderful coffee.

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Banko Gotiti - NEW

Strength/Roast:
Flavour:
Rich & Winey with Chocolate Undertones

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Banko Gotiti is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Banko Gotiti Cooperative, located in the village of Banko Gotiti in the southern district of Gedeb in the Gedeo Zone, in the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia.

The indigenous ‘heir-loom’ varieties - which grow wild in Ethiopia - are responsible for the unique flavour notes of Yirgacheffe coffees, which make for an unusual but beautifully refined cup, generally characterised by strong citric acidity, sweet chocolate and floral/herbal notes of lavender, jasmine, bergamot & thyme. This coffee is Medium-Dark Roasted and can be brewed through an Espresso Machine or through a Filter/Cafetiere. The cup profile is Bergamot, Cream, Stoned Fruit and Dark Chocolate. More Details

Nicaraguan Flor Silvestre

Strength/Roast:
Flavour:
Rich & Fruity / Sweet

Finca Flor Silvestre, located at the intriguingly named ‘Cerro de La Explosión’ (Explosion Hill) is owned by Roger Esau Herrera Ortez.

These challenges are what make his coffee so unique and special. He is now very proud of being a producer of extremely high quality coffee; in fact, his coffee was recognized in 2015’s Cup of Excellence and has won recognition during the recent ‘Cafes mas Finos de Nicaragua’ Competition (2016). The cup profile of this coffee is Dark Chocolate, Almonds, Caramel and Lemon. Medium-Dark Roasted, this coffee can be brewed through an Espresso Machine, Filter Machine or a Cafetiere. More Details
