For our Bright & Aromatic offering we rotate your coffee destination every three months to ensure you receive the freshest crops from the tastiest microlots. You will generally receive coffees from East Africa. The Great Rift Valley has the perfect terroir and varietals to produce complex coffees, with nuanced flavours, bright acidity and clean body. Often the flavour profiles are fruity, floral and tropical.
Our current Bright & Aromatic coffee comes from producer Buriso Amaje within the Bensa Area. Buriso is a pivotal member of the Dambi village and leads a small group of farmers who each have 3-12 hectares of land situated 2050 metres above sea level. The Bensa area is well known for coffees with rich, fruity and tropical profiles. This coffee represents the area perfectly with upfront notes of mango, red berries and plum, bringing a vibrant and heavy sweetness. A rich dark chocolate body follows bringing amazing balance to an incredible tasting coffee.
We recommend you endeavor to receive your coffee as beans, as it will aid your coffee in staying fresher for longer and will keep those flavours and aromas that make that coffee distinct and vibrant locked in. If this isn’t possible we can grind your beans to suit your filter brew method. Your coffee subscription will be accompanied by a detailed leaflet outlining tasting notes, historical backdrops, environmental landscapes and inspiring and innovative stories of the coffees journey from the farm to your brew at home.
