Certified organic by the Soil Association, this version of our George St. Blend is 100% direct trade, meaning we worked directly with the producers to ensure a sustainable supply chain. Strong enough to shine through milk, George St. is carefully roasted to highlight the coffee’s robust, natural flavors. This version of our mainstay blend was created by combining two coffees from farming co-operatives: the Honduran coffee Las Flores and a Rwandan coffee called Sholi. Together, they create a coffee that is a crowd-pleasing combination of sweetness and strength.
Honduras Las Flores: Sourced from a collection of small farms near Marcala in northern Honduras, this lot of coffee was named Las Flores by the co-operative mill from where it came.. It is a mix of red catuai coffees, a popular cultivar on farms all over the country. Known for creating a final cup that is balanced, sweet, and clean, it gives the George St. blend that caramel note that makes it so delicious.
Rwanda Sholi: The Rwandan co-operative Sholi was born out of a women producer group called Kundwa. Looking to grow, in 2008 they decided to build a co-operative as a force for good in the community and so they put that ethos into their new name: Sholi means “mutual assistance.” The co-operative has been working to support its members by offering training, financing, health insurance as well as building medical centres, wells and a village community centre.
