Fairtrade Espresso World Map

This well-balanced and versatile, our Fairtrade certified espresso blend is a tried and trusted favourite amongst our clientele.

By mixing together Colombian and high-grown "Flamingo" Costa Rican arabicas together, we've created a slightly sweet, fruity and nutty coffee that's great whether you're serving it as a short, sharp shot or using it to craft lattes and cappuccinos.

Fairtrade Colombian Medellin Excelso Arabica

Formed in the early 1990s, the COSURCA Cooperative consistently produces a fantastic range of coffees. Based in the Cauca Department of south-west Colombia, the group provide arabica for many of our blends and are one of our favourite cooperatives to work with.

Fairtrade accredited, the Medellin Excelso arabica used in this blend is what we'd all a 'typical Colombian'. And by that we mean it's incredibly rewarding with plenty of sweetness and a fair hint of fruitiness thrown in for good measure.

Since COSURCA's creation, the cooperative have used their Fairtrade premiums to establish a 'Food Security Fund' for their farmers, as well as using some of the money to help fund agricultural educational programs in local communities.

Fairtrade Costa Rica SHB Arabica

Grown by the Caf– Libertad cooperative, a member of Cafecoop, a consortium of 7 well established and well known cooperatives across Costa Rica. Caf– Libertad is a high quality speciality coffee producer producing "HB", "SHB" and "Fancy" grades of coffee.

This 'Flamingo' variety is one of the highest quality of arabica available from Caf– Libertad, and with its wonderfully clean and sweet flavour it is easy to see why.

Mild, with a medium body, our Fairtrade Espresso blend has plenty of sweet notes about it, such as soft toffee, sugared almonds and caramel. Alongside the almonds, there is also the presence of hazelnut, and a slight, again sweet, fruitiness emerges at the finish.

Brewing Notes: A slightly higher dose of coffee (16-18g) will really bring out the best in this coffee, emphasizing the depth of the blend's flavours and accentuating its body.
