Behind the Scenes
This high-scoring speciality coffee is grown by small holder farmers in the Huila region of Columbia.
Huila is a top-class coffee growing region. It was the first department in Colombia to start coffee production, did you know? Today, it’s known for its pioneering community of farmers and awesome coffee growing conditions. High altitudes? Check. Mountainous landscape? Check? And mineral-rich soil the arabica trees love? That’s another big ‘check’ right there!
These conditions all combine to give us a stella coffee with the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness.
Washed is the processing method for this scrummy coffee. The main difference between natural and washed processing is that water is involved with washed (surprise surprise). Also, the washed method separates the bean from its outer layers before (rather than after) laying it out to dry.
Scores on the Doors
Every coffee that we source and roast is speciality coffee. For a coffee to become speciality, it must obtain a quality score of 80 points or above. A process known as coffee cupping is used to find this score. No score, no name. Want to know more about the process of cupping? Well, it’s your lucky day! We’ve written a simple to follow guide all about coffee cupping.
During the roasting process, we will never ‘over roast’. When we roast, we use this as a way of showing off the flavours and aromas of the coffee rather than hiding them. If a coffee is roasted too dark, this can hide some of the natural flavours and aromas and create a coffee with a bitter and burnt taste.
As the coffee we source is of high quality, there is nothing to hide. We can bring out the flavours rather than trying to hide them. All our coffees have a natural sweetness, rather than a burnt or bitter taste.
The coffees we source are all unique from one another. For instance, the altitude the coffee is grown at makes a huge difference to the natural taste. Across the globe, the farmers we source our coffee beans from are constantly working hard to ensure they are giving us a great product. In honour of their work, we also work hard to produce a product our customers will love.

Why buy speciality coffee from us?
Everyone who drinks speciality coffee from us is supporting coffee farmers in its country of origin. We always pay between 30 and 150% more than the ‘going rate’ for our green coffee. We do this so the farmers get more revenue for their crops. This results in the opportunity for better living conditions and an even better harvest next year.
When it comes to the supply chain, we like to keep this as short as possible too. Keeping it short means that more can be given back to the workers and their farms.
So keep it up. You really are helping.
