"Our Signature Espresso blend combines two carefully selected specialty arabica lots from Brazil and Colombia. It is craft roasted to order by hand in small batches to ensure maximum freshness and flavour by local independent coffee roasters Coffee Central.
The base of the blend comes from one of the larger estates in Brazil. Ipanema has a rich heritage; a founder member of the Brazilian Specialty Coffee Association and a company at the forefront of coffee farming innovation in technology.
Our blend is completed with a coffee from a very small single estate only 35 hectares in total. Finca la Albania is a 100% family owned and run farm. The owner of the farm, Israel, also runs the Racafe drymill who also export his coffee. He has been working there for over 2 decades and certainly knows his green beans!
Coffee is his passion, but not his only passion.He is also an avid collector of Turkeys and currently has 32 that roam the farm!
Coffee runs in the family with Isreal's wife Camila and son Juan Pablo running the La Albania Farm on a day to day basis. The coffee is processed using the fully washed method and brings a balance of citrus acidity, red fruit and cherry flavours to round off our blend perfectly."
In addition to our great Coffee we also offer a comprehensive selection of speciality teas.
