This blend celebrates some of Origin's longest standing Direct Trade partnerships and includes 3 different coffees from across the world.
La Virgen is the brainchild of Grupo Asociativo Villa Esperanza (GAVE) in Guadalupe, Colombia. GAVE had the objective of improving their income and quality of life through the joint commercialisation of their coffee. Their coffee contributes a low acidity to Resolute, which is both chocolatey and sweet.
Santa Elena is a high-altitude farm in Santa Ana, El Salvador. The farm is owned by Fernando Lima, whose attention to detail is reflected in the vibrancy of flavour and the strong structure of the coffee, which contributes to this espresso blend.
The Huabal smallholders work across two neighbouring mountains in Peru with differing climates and soil conditions; some areas are wet and humid, whilst others are dry and hot. This diversity contributes to this blends complex flavour.
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 & despatch days are currently Monday to Friday. All orders placed after midnight on Thursday will be roasted and despatched on Monday.
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. All of our coffees are 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.
