"Explore Uncommon" Coffee subscription
This package displays two exceptionally high quality lots with unique variables.
This subscription is tailored to filter coffee but also suitable for progressive, exotic espresso drinkers. Expect floral, bright, sweet profiles. Our intention is to introduce you to complex and bespoke coffees.
You can expect to have 2 new coffees most months. We love tasting two coffees side by side, sometimes you will receive coffees from the same farm but with two different processes, or two different varieties. The variables are endless and it will be a true tasting experience where you will openly learn how these variables impact the flavour profile. You can expect some top tier coffees in this package, the competition level/ rare lots will feature here and there (in a smaller portion).
In October we are exploring the diversity of Ethiopian coffees. One washed and one naturally processed. Read more below.
Please note that we roast and ship the subscriptions on the first Thursday of each month. Shipping costs are location dependent and will be calculated at checkout.
You can cancel your subscription at any time. Unless we have already roasted that month's order for you (on the first Thursday of the month).
The very first delivery will arrive in our beautiful giftbox as a welcome. After that, the coffees will arrive in standard packaging.
You can expect two new coffees most months. The competition level/ rare lots will feature here and there in a smaller portion.
We will provide you with your tracking number so you can see when your package is scheduled to arrive.
This month's first feature is Nano Challa; a washed coffee from Ethiopia
Bright and citrusy, this coffee displays the terroir from the Guji region superbly. We taste candied lemon, pineapple and butterscotch.
While most of the Nano Challa farmers have 2 to 3 hectares of land, a few have smaller plots, and some have larger ones. The land – being close to the cradle of coffee – is perfect for growing coffee trees, with most plots at altitudes between 1850 to 2100 metres above sea level. Before the Nano Challa cooperative came to be, farmers sold natural sundried coffee individually to traders. But they did not make much from their coffee. By investing in a new washing station the farmers have increased their cupping score and get paid far more.
The second feature this month also originates from Ethiopia, however Suke Quto is a jammy natural coffee
This funky, organic Ethiopian is blockchain-based and finances new schools for surrounding villages. Refined, juicy natural with raspberry jam notes finishing with a crisp acidity.
Suke Quto is a progressive washing station made up of 171 small holders. Over the years we have always loved the profile of Suke Quto and this year's harvest is no exception! This refined, balanced natural is super jammy and has a beautifully crisp acidity. Owner Tesafye is focused on environmentally friendly coffee and on the economic growth of the community. He keeps the soil in shape by organic recycling through litterfall, root residue from coffee and shade trees. Suke Quto coffees are all Organic and Rainforest Alliance certified.
