From Climpson & Sons:
The Fields is the adventurous coffee that has been a key player in our forward-thinking desire for quality and innovation at the roastery. This coffee is a nod to our past as one of the pioneers in the London coffee scene and a representation of our position in Hackney.
Each year we are blown away by the quality of coffee coming from the Sasaba Washing Station. This year's crop of the natural Sasaba comes across cleaner and more complex with summer berries, honeycomb sweetness and a creamy orange body.
We take a significant volume of washed coffee from the Sasaba Washing Station for our mainstay Climpson Estate espresso and couldn't resist the chance to showcase the unique difference in processing with this naturally processed lot as the latest version of The Fields.
Located in the remote reaches of the Guji District, the Sasaba Washing Station processes the cherries from the numerous small-holders in the area. The selective picking of only ripe red cherries is the key, with the natural coffees dried with the fruit intact on raised beds for 15-20 days. This imparts the classic intensity of wild fruit fermentation with a clean sweetness unique to such careful quality control.
Tasted alongside our Climpson Estate, these two coffees really showcase the incredible difference processing can make to flavour in a coffee.
