Our house blend, named after the street upon which our flagship coffee shop proudly stands in the heart of Richmond, brings together two coffees that showcase the richness and variety of the opposing cup profiles typical of the best Central American and African coffees.
The Honduran lot is from Finca Liquidámber, a farm setup by a group of pioneering individuals with a passion for organic coffee production. Here the discarded fruit from the cherries are saved and turned into organic fertilizer for future production, with pulp developed compost processed by the California red worm. The farm employs 18 people with an additional 12 during harvest and covers and area of 45 acres, with 15 being conserved forest area. Here the ripest cherries are picked, pulped and dried on raised beds for up to 25 days, during which coffee is turned to ensure even drying and uniformity of flavour. The farm produces a mix of varietals, including the rust resistant Lempira, as a way of increasing genetic diversity amongst trees.
The washed Ethiopian lot, Duromina, complements this. Founded in 2010, Duromina, meaning, “to improves lives” in the Afan Oromo language, is a cooperative located in the south-western Jimma Zone that produces exceptional, 90+ cup scoring coffees on a regular basis. In 2012, Duromina was selected by a panel of international judges as the best in Africa, awarding the cooperative the top prize in the leading regional cupping competition.
