We’re delighted to introduce Loyola Estate as our newest partner farm! The coffee cherries from this farm are hand-picked and then pulped, fermented, washed and sun-dried. The slow-dried parchment was packed in clean jute bags and stored at an ambient temperature before further processing into clean coffee beans. 

Our roasters chose to profile this one as a medium dark roast to create a nutty and chocolatey profile with low bitterness and medium acidity levels. Savour the creamy, smooth mouthfeel and sweet aromas of caramel and chocolate of this heavy bodied coffee by brewing it using an AeroPress, Moka Pot, French Press or as an Espresso. If you’ve enjoyed our coffees from Sandalwood, Baarbara or Attikan Estates, you’ll love this one!

Tasting Notes: Dark Chocolate, Roasted Almonds, Plum
