Bolivia Vincent Paye

A gentle red apple kicks things off, but it's followed up with a really interesting sweetness like a Caramac bar - kind of creamy and caramel. On the aftertaste is clean dark chocolate which rounds it out and balances it nicely.

Kenya Kiriga Estate AA

 

This is rather like warm blackcurrant cordial, with just a hint of green apple alongside. There’s fruit sweetness throughout, but on the aftertaste that sweetness shifts darker into treacle toffee, so you have a bright but well-balanced cup.

Bolivia Teodocio Mamani

Starting with brown sugar, this swings quickly into honeycomb. It's definitely sweet, but a gentle hint of mango alongside it and then a bit of lime zest on the finish adds a softly fruity edge. The aftertaste keeps that going with juicy raisin, tempting you back for another sip.

Bolivia El Fuerte Anaerobic Washed Bourbon

Juicy pear fills the mouth with the first sip, with a milk chocolate sweetness following on its heels. As it cools, there's a malty but fruity sweetness, rather like malt loaf, before it finishes with a glacé cherry (on top).

Burundi Kirundo Washed Bourbon

A very sweet and rounded coffee, there's sweet lime curd and brown sugar up front before it finishes with creamy milk chocolate that lingers into the aftertaste.

Bolivia Don Carlos

This is luxury chocolate mousse through and through! Cream and cocoa deliver that rich, deep flavour which lingers on right through into the finish, all held together by the silky smooth body. There’s a tiny nod to green apple in there too, which helps the chocolate sing all the louder.

Brazil Fazenda Inglaterra Pulped Natural Mixed Selection

Nuts! It's a moreish medley of hazelnutpecan and Brazil nuts, but with a dark caramel sweetness which makes it all rather like a nut brittle.

Burundi Kirundo Natural Bourbon

Sticky, sweet pear juice fills the cup here, but there are layers of other fruit behind that too, with golden raisinsplum and candied lemon peel all slipping past.

El Salvador Finca La Ilusion Natural Bourbon

The intense sweetness of strawberry jam runs throughout the coffee. There's a bit of peach too, adding a little complexity, and a shoulder of orange on the finish.

Brazil Fazenda Cachoeira da Grama Natural Canario

Fit for the ambassador's dinner, there's the classic Brazil hazelnut and chocolate flavours, but extra refined. There's a sweetness and silky texture of single cream alongside chocolate spread, whilst the sprinkle of hazelnuts gets a twist with roasted chestnut in there too.
