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.

Most of these coffees can be brewed through an Espresso Machine - for your lattes, cappuccinos, Espresso shots and long Americanos; or a Drip Filter Machine or Cafetiere. Please check each coffee for details.

We offer generous discounts on 2 or more packs of coffee.

Ecuador Galapagos - NEW

Strength:
Flavour:
Rich & Full bodied

Coffee production in the Galapagos Islands started around 135 years ago - the first coffee seeds were brought here from French colonies in the Caribbean (stopping in Panama along the way). These were Bourbon seeds, and Bourbon remains the main variety grown on these islands today. Despite being on the equator with intense sunlight, and the islands being low altitude at 200 to 300 metres above sea level, Speciality-grade coffees are gown here. This is due to the ocean moderating the temperature to what you expect at 1200m -1300m above sea level, and the volcanic soils rich in nutrients such as nitrogen. Add to this careful production and processing methods and you have all the elements necessary for exceptional quality coffees. This coffee is Medium-Dark Roasted and can be brewed through an Espresso Machine or through a Filter/Cafetiere. The cup profile is Dark Chocolate, Digestive Biscuit & Caramelised Sugar. More Details
