From Horsham Coffee Roaster:
Consistent and dependable with a nutty, chocolate body with sweet orange and caramel notes. This coffee is ideal for espresso and works very well in milk based drinks. It is also excellent in a filter or aeropress and gives lots of chocolate notes with a good body.
The Workhorse blend is built around the concept of consistency and reliability. This blend features our relationship coffees produced by hard working farmers around the world and purchased by us in large volumes. This gives us consistency over the course of the year enabling us to provide a reliable and dependable taste profile. From time to time the ingredients will change but unlike our 'Pioneer' option we aim to substitute similar coffees when changing this blend.
Brewing: This coffee works well with all filter brewers and espresso. For filter we recommend a 1 - 15 brew ratio, and for espresso a 1 - 2 brew ratio.
Example: Filter: 17g - 250ml // Espresso: 18g - 36ml
Fazenda São Paulo, Brazil 40%Varietal: Catuai
Processing: Pulped Natural
Altitude: 950 - 1,100 masl
Sao Paulo was established in 2008 by the Montanari family and is managed by fourth generation brothers, Roger and Marcello. Under the watchful eye of their highly experienced coffee farming father, the brothers are pushing the boundaries of modern coffee farming in Brazil.
This lot of pulped natural Catuai has been picked and pulped to remove all mucilage before being immediately dried on African style raised beds. This results in a cleaner cup than natural processed coffee, with brighter notes, a lighter body and greater complexity.
Rancho Alegre, Nicaragua 20%Varietal: Caturra
Altitude: 1,280 - 1,400 masl
This estate is owned by Victor Robelo. He owns a few different estates in Matagalpa and exports the coffee under the name” Finca Las Nubes”. He has a lot of experience in producing micro-lots utilising a variety of processing methods. Every lot is processed at his own mill and as well as his full time employees he also employs seasonal pickers to whom he offers housing and food. The competitive wages he offers ensures that people come back year after year and results in greater attention to detail during the harvest. This lot is super clean and sweet with juicy citrus and soft caramel notes.
Community Lot AA, Kenya 40%Varietal: SL28, SL34 and small amounts of Ruiru and Batian
Altitude: 1600-1900 masl
Most Kenyan coffee comes from large estate farms or cooperatives, but this unique lot is produced by a small group of 29 selected farmers. After being delivered to the mill the coffee parchment is removed through de-hulling before the beans are separated by quality and size with AA denoting the largest and highest quality beans. This year we have bought both the AA and Peaberry lots in their entirety and are proud to be able to bring you these unique, delicious coffees. The AA lot brings notes of blackcurrant, orange and a bright grapefruit-like acidity.
All the ingredients are excellent single origins in their own right and are often available to purchase on their own or as part of this blend.
The blend is subject to change at anytime however we aim to achieve a consistent taste profile.
Great for: Cafetiere, Espresso, Milky, With milk
