50% Colombia - Los Vascos, Washed
50% Rwanda - Keza, Anaerobic Natural
Expect notes of Caramel, Blood Orange, Strawberry.
To celebrate our anniversary this year, we wanted to bring together our oldest direct trade partners, ASOT Bilbao, and our newest, the Liza mill. These two coffees represent the two ends of our coffee offering. Los Vascos is familiar and approachable, with a nod to classic coffees thanks to its balanced acidity and caramel notes. Keza is at the opposite end of the spectrum – vibrantly sweet with lots of funky, fruity notes, it shows a mastery of intentional processing that creates a fantastically unique cup. Together, they deliver a cup in which you can explore complementary and contrasting flavours which open up as you enjoy the coffee.
Los Vascos is a cooperative of producers who work together under the name ASOT Bilbao. Each of them have small farms that are lush with coffee trees and nature reserves – a combination which makes the area look more like a jungle than farmland. The cool weather of this mountainous region creates a terroir known for its deep caramel sweetness and light fruitiness.
The producer of the Keza is Jean Paul. Like all of his coffees, he named it after one of his children: his daughter, Keza. A lot of coffee production in Rwanda is much like how wineries work, in the sense that the winery processes grapes which are often grown on other farms. Jean Paul’s Liza mill buys its grapes from farmers in the area, and then processes them to create the different lots.
We don’t label our coffee as espresso or filter. Instead, for each coffee we create a unique roasting profile, designed to bring out the best flavours from its origin, farm and milling method. That’s why, instead, we label our coffee based on the experience it brings to the cup.
