Caffe Society - Speciality Coffee Bundle

Getting product details...

A selection of four great, seasonal coffees, sourced from: Brazil, Nicaragua, Papua New Guinea and Peru
Brazilian Chapadao de Ferro - Nestled in the vicinity of a dormant volcano stands the Chapadão de Ferro estate, a popular and well-respected farm ran by the equally popular and well respected Ruvaldo Delarisse.

Here the soil is rich in iron and other minerals, something of a topological and agricultural quirk which sets the coffee from this farm apart from its peers. In this volcanic environment Delarisse has constantly cultivated coffee which has achieved Cup of Excellence status.

This has a very stickily sweet profile characterised by a sumptuous syrupiness. The mouthfeel is lovely and creamy and there's a dash of bitter cocoa here and a wallop of demerara sugar and marzipan there. A perfect espresso!

Origin: Patrocino, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Farm: Chapadão de Ferro
Altitude: 1,260m
Varietal: Acaia, Bourbon, Catuai and Mundo Novo

Nicaraguan La Bendición Pacamara - In the mountainous north of Nicaragua where the weather fluctuates on a seemingly regular basis are a string of farms owned by Luis Albert Balladarez, a regular entrant (and winner) in the Nicaraguan Cup of Excellence event.

This offering comes from Balladarez's La Bendición farm, which is located near to the town of Jalapa in the province of Nueva Segovia, and is 100% pure Pacamara arabica. Once ripe, these beans are swiftly transported to a mill in Ocotal where they are hand-picked, processed and sun dried.

This lot was a finalist in this year's Cup of Excellence programme and is, unsurprisingly, is in high demand - which is why we're thrilled to be able to offer it to you!

At the fore is a refreshing blast of green grape, a dab of apple and citrus fruits which then subsides to reveal a pleasing and a surprising milk chocolate finish.

Origin: Jalapa, Nueva Segovia
Farm: La Bendición
Altitude: 1,250m
Varietal: Pacamara

Papua New Guinean Bunum Wo Estate Peaberry - We've said that this Papua New Guinean is both brash and beautiful, a description that we're willing to hang our hat upon. This peaberry variety offers up a few earthy flavours that you'd expect of a deep Sumatran with a beautiful sweetness that's normally associated with high-grown Central Americans. Together, these characteristics combine to create a really full-bodied coffee that works well on its own or with milk.

Coffee has been grown in Papua New Guinea on a wide-scale basis since the 1920s and has become a real melting pot, drawing in influences from all over the world. This particular selection is comprised solely of peaberries. A peaberry forms when only one seed develops instead of two. This is a rare, but natural occurrence.

Expect an aroma of maple, dark notes of chocolate and a sweet finish.

Origin: Wahgi Valley, Papua New Guinea
Estate: Bunum Wo
Altitude: 1,600
Varietal: Various

Peruvian UNICAFEC - Founded in 2001, the Asociacion Union de Cafetaleros Ecologicos (UNICAFEC) has around 400 or so members who are spread out around the mountainous countryside that surround the small town of San Ignacio. Up in this northern part of Peru the climate is warm, the soil is fertile and the altitude is high. Basically, it's the perfect place to grow coffee.

This lot is particularly clean and clear, both in acidity and flavour. The most prominent flavour of this coffee is that of green apple, though other notes of dried fruit, such as dates, also appear. The body is substantial and the mouthfeel is pleasing: You don't have to work hard to get to appreciate its nuances.

On the whole we have to say this is one of the most balanced coffees that we've tried.

Origin: San Ignacio, Cajamarca Region, Peru
Farms: Various local smallholders
Altitude: 1,200-1,700m
Varietal: Catimor, Caturra, Mondo Novo and Typica

Great for: Aeropress, Cafetiere, Espresso, Filter, Milky, With milk
