Carbon negative coffee



The Donna Espresso Blend is our nod towards a more traditional coffee flavour. First, we find coffees that have the inherent characteristics of deep chocolate, with low acidity and lots of body. We then roast a little darker than our other coffees, to the point where the natural sugars are browned to a dark caramel quality. Donna tastes robust and strong but still allows the natural characteristics of the Brazil Minas Gerais and Chinese Dongka to shine through.

The Brazilian coffee Dutra comes from five smaller farms that band together to create the larger Fazenda. The Dutra brothers inherited the farm from their dad Zeca, who originally had the idea to grow coffee. In the 1950s, Zeca transformed their farm into a coffee farm, and since then the focus has always been on creating a more sustainable and ecologically-minded farm. The family’s hard work has even resulted in them being awarded the Sustainable Farm Award by Globo Rural Magazine.

Dongka is a family-run farm and washing station which has been creating coffee for over 20 years, making them one of the first in the new wave of Chinese coffee producers. These producers are largely found in regions previously dedicated to tea, like Yunnan, in the Menglian region which sits not far from the border with Myanmar and Vietnam. Many different organisations have been active in the area over recent years, working to teach and educate farmers so that they can learn how to grow coffee, something which gives them more economic opportunities. Although these programs have been active since the 90s, it’s only now, after so much hard work and dedication from the producers, that the quality of the coffee is on par with the great growing regions around the world.

 

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.
