Our classic medium-light roast of this estate, bringing out intense acidity paired with apple and pear sweetness, citrus notes, and a strong caramel finish.
An estate located in the midst of a mountainous natural reserve, all cherries are handpicked according to the microclimates of each individual farm, to maximise their potential. The estate also houses a fully vertically integrated processing system, to allow for precise differentiation and sorting of each bean. With the Teach a Man to Fish charity, we fund three children through the on-site technical college of La Bastilla, providing them the skills to move into tourism, animal husbandry and farming – we are very proud that our first few students have now moved on to university!
- All our coffee beans are heat sealed at the time of roasting. If ordering ground coffee, in order to freshly grind the coffee beans to your requirements, the first seal will be broken on the top of the bag at the time of grinding, the zip-lock seal will be closed before dispatch. This does not apply to unground beans.
- If you are placing a back-order of this item, coffee may take up to 3 additional days prior to dispatch/drop-off of your order
