For our Rich & Chocolatey offering we rotate your coffee destination every three months to ensure you receive the freshest coffee from the tastiest microlots. You will generally receive coffees from the Americas. South America has the terroir and varietals to produce full bodied coffees, with rich chocolatey flavours that are well balanced with sweet notes of caramel and nuts and often with subtle citrus acidity.
Our latest Rich and Chocolatey offering comes from Bosque Lya in the rainforests of El Salvador. Established in 1932 by Gustavo Vides Valdes, Gus named the farm after his new born daughter, Lya, translating directly to Lya’s forest. Spread across 96 hectares of forest (64 dedicated to coffee), Lya lives up to its name sake with its awe inspiring beauty. This year’s lot has a toffee-like sweetness with notes of red berries and chocolate.
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 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.
