Improved green bean quality and sustainable farming practices are originating from a new class of educated and entrepreneurial coffee farmers at every origin.
Farmers and roasters are trying to respond to the specialist segment of the market, they are building physical and intellectual infrastructure and adopting improved methods of processing that are less damaging to the environment.
The farmer in turn is connected with specialist and experienced green bean importers and roasters, who in turn are connected with an engaged and growing customer base of end users. This supply chain is providing increased coffee variety, transparency and traceability. Inevitably, the cost of this quality green bean coffee is higher and such coffees are lighter roasted to highlight the flavours that the farmer, environment and plant has generated. A lighter roast delivers an espresso with more flavour nuance, reduced body and greater acidity.
Our range of Reserve coffees is a window of opportunity to experience this range of coffees.
