A taste of place

Although Kenya’s cooperative system is a well known feature of its coffee growing landscape, many other countries also have systems where lots are created from the work of multiple producers. Although this can result in delicious coffees, we often miss out on the real ‘taste of place’ from a specific farm, and the craft of a specific producer in the creation of a lot. We are also prevented from fostering a relationship with a specific producer, based on a mutual understanding of quality. Here, we showcase the work of two talented single producers, in countries with strong cooperative structures.

First coffee
Chania - Washed Estate Blend

Single farm lot from Kenya

This coffee is a varietal blend, made up of SL28, SL34, Ruiru 11 and SL14. SL14 is seen very rarely, an early selection of Bourbon from Scott Laboratories which was mainly superseded by SL28 and SL34 after they were found to yield better and tolerate disease. The Harries family have kept a small plot of SL14 on the Oreti Estate however, as they believe the cup quality is slightly higher than the varietal’s more modern counterparts. This washed coffee has a rather typical Kenyan feel, with berries and citrus balanced by a rich caramel sweetness...

Second coffee
Esther Fernandez - Washed Catimor

Lively tropical notes from Peru

The quality of Esther’s work in the field means that only very minimal influence is required from fermentation in order to create a balanced and flavourful cup, here reminding us of fresh and crisp tropical fruit with a delicate tea-like character. One of the finest coffees we have tasted from Peru in the years we have been watching this origin...

Brew Guide

Iced coffee

When experimenting with iced coffee, we found it difficult not to highlight the dry and heavy characteristics of a given coffee, muddying the brighter characteristics we aim for. In this recipe we combat this, by deliberately under-extracting the coffee, dissolving less coffee into our brew than usual. This will highlight the coffee’s acidity and bright aromatic notes. Try with coffees from this month’s subscription.

About Discovery

The opportunity to share new experiences

Our Discovery Subscription allows us the opportunity to share new experiences with you every month, taking you with us on our journey through the changing seasons of coffee. This allows you the opportunity to taste new lots from across the coffee landscape as they arrive at our roastery, when they’re fresh and in season. We strive to find the most delicious and thought-provoking coffees we can get our hands on, working together with a group of innovative and dedicated partners we have met over our years in the industry. We are inspired not only by sharing their painstakingly created raw material, but by conveying how each step of its journey has led to what you find in your cup, be it terroir, varietal, post-harvest processing, or something else entirely.

About Discovery

We always aim to tell a story

One of the best ways to appreciate the effect of these factors is to taste coffees side by side. Our most popular option allows you to experience two coffees every month, maybe different varietals or processes from the same farm or region, or maybe two parallel lots from producers at opposite ends of the coffee belt. We always aim to tell a story with our coffee choice, focusing on a different aspect of what we’re finding exciting in coffee right now. Sharing these experiences each month allows us to expand our coffee horizons together, and develop a shared vocabulary within both taste and preference in coffee.

About Discovery

Come explore with us

We’re always happy to continue our conversation with you through our webshop portal, whether it be purely practical, or discussions about this month’s coffees. We see our role as simply a middleman between you and some of the best coffees in the world, and the people who produce them. These people inspire us, and we do our utmost to share both their coffees and their stories with the people who appreciate them most.
