We don't just buy any coffee and have a set of strict rules to govern what and how we purchase:
- Fact - our coffee has to be ethically sourced. What do we mean by this? Well in many cases this will mean partnering with the likes of Fairtrade or RainForest Alliance to name but a few. We also have arrangements with Companies where they have worked with communities for years and support the values of Fair Price, working conditions and at the same time give back to the communities all of this without holding these accreditations. As we like to say we are an inclusive club not exclusive!
- Must be 100% first crop arabica beans - these in our opinion are the ultimate bean for taste and flavor, picked at their peak.
- At least 50% washed arabica - these beans are hand picked and washed where the fruit pulp is separated from the seed. This removes any over ripe or fermented cherries that may have escaped our hawk-eyed harvesters.
- High Grown - We like to have a high percentage of beans which are grown between 2000 - 6000 feet above sea level. The beans tend to mature slower at this altitude and have a richer more aromatic flavor.
