Filter: 17g - 250ml // Espresso: 18g - 38g

 

Nova Espresso blend is our new take on a more tradition high quality Italian style espresso blend. Based around a really good quality coffee from Brazil, this blend is roasted a touch darker than our Workhorse blend. We've developed the blend and roast style to suit espresso extraction and it's easy to work with and fairly forgiving. It also tastes great in milk and the dark chocolate notes really cut through, even in an 8oz latte. If you are looking for a bright, juicy espresso we'd suggestion our Workhorse blend.

For espresso we suggest a brew ration of 1-2. For example, 18 gram dose to 36 grams of espresso. The timing is fairly forgiving with this one but something between 26 and 30 seconds is likely to yield the best results.   

Rwanda Liza Washing station, 40% (relationship coffee)
Varietal: Red Bourbon
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1650+masl

We first visited Rwanda in 2014 and over the last few years we've developed some very close relationships within the Rwandan coffee community. We first visited Bwishaza co-operative in 2015 and have been buying coffee from them every year. You can read more about this via our transparency report. 

Liza washing station is owned by Jean Paul (far left in the above picture). He is a second-generation coffee farmer who has worked for many years as an agronomy consultant both in Rwanda and the Congo. His farm has about 6000 trees and he processes coffee from his own farm and from several hundred local small-hold farmers within the community. The quality he produces is outstanding and this is due to his dedication and commitment to training local farmers and focusing on very careful hand sorting at the washing station. Jean Paul produces a variety of different micro-lots specifically for us, these include washed coffees and bespoke experimental process coffees.  We've selected this lot for our Workhorse blend and feature other coffees from Bwishaza as single origins in our Relationship coffee collection. 

Brazil Inhame Estate 30%

Process: Natural

Brazil Inhame is a small family farm with 28 hectares of coffee trees located near to the town of Campos Altos. We were introduced to the farm by Bruno Souza, owner of Academia do Cafe, a Q Grade, coffee farmer and one of the most experienced coffee professionals in Brazil.

Brazil Oberon 30%
Varietal: Mundo Novo, Catuaí and Bourbon
Process: Natural
Altitude: 950-1250 masl

Brazil Oberon is a small farm regional blend from the Cerrado region, Minas Gerais. The multi-farm coffee is perfect for our Nova blend due to the low acidity profile with a focus on chocolate and nuts.

Ideal for: Espresso. Works very well in milk based drinks. If you like dark roast filter coffee or cafetiere with lots of body, and tend to use milk, then this will work well too.
