We have been searching for the perfect recipe for our new Espresso Blend for a long time. The blend of four coffee varieties from Colombia, Indonesia, Mexico and Peru convinced us completely! The coffee from Mexico comes from the Chiapas region near the Guatemala border. There, the Arabica coffee is organically grown on the small farm El Chorro in the highlands at about 1,000 m above sea level and processed with the „washed“ method. We were convinced by the wonderful spiciness of the coffee, which gives the espresso blend an exciting note.
The last piece of the puzzle of the Grano Gayo also comes from Central America, more precisely from Peru. At an altitude of 1,300 meters, the coffee is grown by small farmers in forest gardens at the Yanesha cooperative and processed as washed coffee. The Arabica from Peru convinced us with its fine sweetness and fruity notes, which in combination with the characteristics of the other coffees in the espresso blend leave a chocolaty aftertaste on the tongue.
Kolumbia: Sierra Nevada
The main ingredient of this Italian-style espresso blend comes from Colombia, from our partner cooperative Coocafe. 67 farmers work together to produce this great coffee, which has a very nutty and caramel flavor due to the microclimate and soil in the Sierra Nevada. The entire cooperative grows the coffee exclusively organically and bears the official EU organic seal.
Another important and name-giving component of our blend is a coffee from Indonesia. The Koptan Gayo Megah Berseri cooperative is one of the best cooperatives in Indonesia and is known for producing a coffee with very earthy, slightly peaty aromas. The small farmers grow their coffee at about 1.500m in the Gayo highlands in the province of Aceh on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. After picking, the coffee cherries are processed using the „pulped natural“ method, which gives the coffee its special aroma. Currently, the cooperative has 1,327 small farmers in 17 small villages. The entire cooperative is organically certified, so all farmers grow their coffee without pesticides.
