The Hand Roasted Collection
Launched on the 26th May 2017, The Hand Roasted Collection is all about bringing you beautiful coffee from around the world right to your doorstep. Glasgow is where our coffee beans are carefully hand roasted by our partners Matthew Algie, ensuring each batch is of equal quality. Currently, our coffee cherries are sourced from small farms across America, Africa and Brazil and these, in turn, make up the first three varieties from the collection. Three exquisite new whole bean varieties: Blend 49, Ethiopia Guji and Papua New Guinea (PNG) Arusha. One earthy espresso blend and two delightful single origins farmed from some of the most sought-after microlots globally - thus giving each variety its own unique and profound tasting notes.
So, which coffee is best for you?
This earthy espresso blends produced from coffee cherries in two regions: Nicaragua & Brazil. The blend consists of three varietal: Caturra Catuai, Yellow Catuai and Rubi - grown at 1000-1450m above sea level. Beautiful fully ripe cherries are hand picked and processed naturally, resulting in the creation of some incredible flavour profiles. Syrupy sweetness with a buttery mouthful and a toasted almond note.
This luscious coffee is produced on the Guji Highland of Southern Ethiopia. Here lie some of the world's most coveted heirloom varieties; grown at an altitude of 2000-2300m above sea level. Where processed naturally on sun-dried raised beds - these varieties lend themselves to a smooth and sweet coffee. Matured red berry sweetness with a balanced acidity and floral perfume on the nose.
Papua New Guinea Arusha
This single origin from Papa New Guinea offers sparkling clarity and is a truly beautiful cup. Kunjin is a centralised plantation mill that purchases the cherries from smallholder farmers in the highlands. With central milling and drying, partners on the ground control quality at the processing level — day lots are cupped and separated to build our containers and lots which are microlot worthy (like our Papua New Guinea Arusha) are processed separately. A bright lemon tea note with subtle soft acidity.
