From Climpson & Sons:
Flavours of Brown Sugar, Almond, Toffee.
Our goal with the seasonal espresso is to develop fantastic and innovative single origin roasts that work well with shorter milk drinks, but are talking points as espresso.
We've been witness to some truly extraordinary coffees in the seasonal espresso; our continued emphasis on farm-to-roaster relationships ensures we see the best quality, seasonal coffees coming from the same farms ever year.
For the second year running we are excited to return to coffee from the delicious El Progresso from Brazil.
Fazenda Progresso lies in Northern Brazil. The name means “progress” in English, which correlates with the Borré family’s concept and philosophy of business. The name is a clear insight into the family’s commitment to movement, innovation and improvement in every working day. Their focus is on combatting climate change with new techniques and technologies, and sustainable irrigation for the entire farm.
Welfare for their workers is also extremely important to the family, with over 200 permanent workers employed. All employers are supplied with clothing, sunscreen and safety equipment. They have also built and foster a school for children in a village next to the farm, further contributing to the wider community.
The family have invested heavily in developing Progresso’s coffee infrastructure, recently extending production to 1,000 hectares at the end of 2012 and building their own processing facilities.
