New Recyclable Bags

From April 30, we’re transitioning from compostable to recyclable coffee bag materials. You’ll be receiving an interim design as the new bags are still in transit. 

Compostable plastics sound like the perfect solution to the problem of single-use packaging, however, the infrastructure for such is still in its infancy, meaning people and processing facilities in the UK are unprepared to handle compostable plastics.

Story

Established in 2021, the Asociación de Mujeres Emprendedoras de Pacaypite, led by Celmira Huaman, empowers local women in coffee farming. Grown in the lower-altitude Pacaypite village, the Catimor varietal undergoes meticulous cherry picking, selective harvesting, and controlled fermentation for results of the highest quality. Solar drying tents on raised beds ensure consistency over 15 days, countering the region's rainfall impact. Beyond coffee, the association leads a pioneering approach to training and income support, inclusively teaching the community how to keep bees for honey production, a holistic approach that includes training, unlocking government support, and fostering a sustainable, empowered future. 

Elevate your coffee experience with Meridian – a result of dedication, quality, and community empowerment.

Origin

Thanks to this impressive mountain range, a unique and idyllic environment for the cultivation of coffee forms; clouds blown over from the Amazon collide here, bringing rainfall to the land.

Even though the main variety in the area is catimor and the altitude is much lower than those found in coffee farms in Cajamarca, Amazonas and Cusco, the producers here are sure that well picked, processed and dried coffee from Pacaypite can be great. The association has put great emphasis on picking ripe cherry, investing in pickers who are willing to pick selectively, in order to maximise the cup quality. Picking along with controlled and standardised fermentations help bring good quality and consistency to the cup. Drying is done on raised beds in solar drying tents for around 15 days, given that this area is quite rainy.

    Good

    Solid coffee that produces a good espresso from our Sage machine. Minimal floral or fruity notes, predominantly chocolate and nut flavours.

    Couldn’t find the right brew

    Took a few cups from the aeropress to remove ashy flavours. Needed cooler water, a coarser grind, and a shorter brewing time than other beans have. Once we’d gotten the brewing down, it wasn’t an amazing coffee.

    Perhaps we brewed it wrong, so giving Origin the benefit of the doubt, I’ve increased from 3 to 4 stars. All their other coffees have been great :)
