Rob Says: This is our first collaboration with Piotr, from Eighty Eight Graines, who worked for us as a barista and coffee roaster in 2017.
I have been up and down with our believes in Brazilian coffee the last couple of years. It is a bit boring compared to the multi fruit layered African coffees we buy, but we also believe it is very often very good value for money and great stuff for those who despice acidity (in coffee).
The investments Brazilians made in better processing is been finally putting some great results on the table and we are proud to bring this coffee from this great farmer, who surely knows what he’s doing.
On the variety: the Yellow Bourbon is ideal for those who are in search of smoothieness; it has such a silky mouthfeel that it is the favourite coffee variety for a lot of people.
COMING UP FIRST WEEK OF FEBRUARY
