In the 1990s, the sharp fall of the price of coffee beans worldwide highlighted the plight of coffee farmers who could barely earn a living. As a response, the Fairtrade organisation was founded, and we are proud to offer many products guaranteeing a decent income to coffee farmers, and we know that our customers value this commitment too.
This coffee is a blend of coffee beans from Guatemala and Peru. Those origins are perhaps less sought after but we think that they are underrated as they are exactly as good as their Central and South American cousins. In addition, blessed with soils naturally rich in nutrients, they don’t need any fertilisers and they also produce organic beans which we use in this blend. To release their full flavour, we actually roast them to slightly different levels so that we can do justice to their delicate tones.
This roast is very similar to our basic Italian roast and gives a rich-tasting coffee with a full body. It is one of the strongest blends we offer and is a favourite among our customers looking for a roast for a strong espresso or strong latte. You can also use it for a cappuccino, if you like them robust.
Did you realize: our coffee packs are always 250 grams, not 225 grams as is often the case with mass market coffee.
