This months single origin being brewed by our wholesale partners has been produced by the Perez Family, fifth generation coffee farmers located north west of Guatemalan region of Huehuetenango near the border of Mexico. For ‘coffee heads’ like us, this has to be one of our all time favourite coffee regions alongside perhaps the likes of Huila, Colombia or Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. “Hue-hue” (pronounced huweh-huweh) has the highest non-volcanic mountains of all Central Amercia (up to 2000m above sea level) and thanks for dry, hot winds from the Tehuantepec plain in Mexico the coffee trees are protected from frost. This particular lot is a great example of how sweet, clean and complex coffees from this region can be. Not surprising they regularly place in the top 10 of the Cup of Excellence competition. For us, this lot from La Ponderosa is a coffee we could happily drink every morning and hopefully you can try it to see what we mean. ️

A few weeks ago we held an industry party as part of the World Aeropress Championship circuit. This year it was themed the “Aeropress Prom” and from it was probably the most fun you can have gathered around a coffee brewer. Tag a mate you recognise! Incredible video recap by the legend @aftermathvisuals_

Like many mothers in Rwanda, Epiphanie Mukashyaka lost her husband, a child, and many extended family members in the 1994 genocide. She faced with the responsibility of caring for her seven children and rebuilding their life. With a limited education and little money Epiphanie, whose husband was a coffee farmer, decided to continue to produce coffee with her local community. She saw speciality coffee as a way to provide sustainable improvement for the people of Rwanda by changing the focus from quantity to one of quality and so opening up Rwanda to the far higher-earning potential of specialty coffee market. Every year we make a commitment to buy from Epiphanie and her fellow producers in Rwanda for both single origin offerings and valuable high components of our blends. We do this because they are so unique and delicious and because as coffee consumers we need to support a viable economy for our suppliers so we can continue to enjoy drinking tasty affordable coffee for many years ahead.
