This specialty single origin Arabica coffee is grown on the steep slopes of the Andes by The Chirinos co-operative, one of our favourite producers at London Fields Roastery. The high altitude and fertile volcanic soils has enabled Chirinos to produce amazing coffee consistently for over 50 years and its 815 members are committed and focussed on producing Fairtrade, 100% organic coffee, something that is very important to the ethos of Cafedirect.
This is a medium roast coffee that has been specifically roasted for espresso brewing with a longer and slower roast to increase the caramelised sweetness and mouthfeel to create a balanced and rounded coffee. Expect a sweet and creamy medium espresso roast with complex notes of milk chocolate, praline and prune.
Medium roasts have a smooth and well-balanced flavour. This is a combination of the roasting and inherent flavour in the bean itself. These coffees are good all-rounders for cafetieres and filters.
For all these years Cafédirect has generated sustainable development through better opportunities for our farmers. It’s improved the quality of life of our families.
How to brew the perfect cup using our beans
Measure your beans, use around 2 tbsp’s for a single cup of coffee. A medium grind is ideal for filter coffee and a fine grind is best for espresso.
For cafetieres try 1 tablespoon (15g) of coffee per cup (250ml). Don’t use boiling water as that will burn your coffee, leave it to cool for about a minute or so after reaching max temperature.
Pour the water in circular motion to ensure all the grounds are coated with water.
Brew for 4 minutes then plunge slowly. Let the coffee settle and enjoy
