A cup bursting full of apricot-like qualities.

Long-term relationships underpin our approach to coffee sourcing. Being open. Listening. Learning. Paying fairly. Working together to create an outstanding cup. This lot produced by Virgulino Muniz in Brazil, is a perfect example of that. Our partnership spans over 11 years and each year his crop seems to get better.

Named Lichia as it’s grown in an area on the Das Almas farm that is full of lychees, it has a Icatu varietal and was processed using an anaerobic fermentation technique. This involves placing washed coffee cherries in an airtight container to ferment for almost 3 days before being placed outside to dry. This method increases the acidic qualities and structure in the final cup which is bursting full of apricot-like qualities.

It’s so exciting to see Virgulino trying new innovative practices on a farm that been central to our work for so many years.

LIVE TRANSPARENCY REPORT 

BREW RATIOS:

  • Espresso: 1:2 coffee to water, extracted in 28-32 secs
  • Filter: 60-65g coffee per litre of water, brewed for 3-4 mins

ROAST TYPE:

  • We create a new and unique profile for each coffee we roast. Although the profiles are different, our approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means we don't label our coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. This coffee is omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.

    Great option for filter

    I really liked another coffee from Brazil for my morning filter, Trapia.

    But this one is great as well.

    Very fruity and fresh.

    Sweet, fruity, tasty

    This was a lovely espresso base for my flat whites... sweet, clean and fruity but not too sickly on the fruit front.
