Santa Luz - Nicaragua
This coffee originally caught our attention, not only because it's an Inoculated process, but because it was labelled as Pineapple Candy. Very fitting as this coffee delivers very fruit-forward tasting notes, reminiscent of sweet pineapple! Although we can't deny 'Pineapple Candy' sounds irresistible, we've named this new offering after the coffee farm in Nicaragua, Santa Luz, where you'll find not only a fruity, pineapple-forward flavour, but gentle notes of vanilla and a sweetness of orange marmalade.
H3 varietals are not something that we've had much in the roastery, and if like me you get buzzed on the history of coffee plants then you might find it pretty interesting!
When choosing mutations of different coffee plants to produce at the French Research Institute (ironically a regional network of national coffee institutes in Central America), the H3 plant was not selected due to its susceptibility to the disease 'coffee rust'; this makes its harder to grow successfully. When tasting however, the cup profile was so excellent that some of the farmers in the region choose to cultivate it. Harder graft, sweeter rewards!

What Does Our Colour System Mean?
We categorise each coffee into a colour system that identifies the 'vibe' and general tasting notes of that category of coffee. It can also have a relation to what brewing method works best, the processes used to create it or the varietal of the actual bean. Watch the video below to hear from a member of the team on what exactly this colour represents.
