Last year Climpson's released an exceptional coffee from a collaborative group of neighbouring farmers in Kirinyaga, dubbed the Slopes of 8. We selected this coffee not only for its quality (sleek and tropical) but also with the intention of developing a closer working relationship with producers and securing the rare opportunity to work with the same Kenyan coffee each year.
Our very own Stacey Barber competed in the UK Brewers Cup competition in May. She made it to the final 6! She puts her experience on paper with stories of the heats, some serious soul searching, the love of Geisha and tips for the budding barista! So, I have finally come back down to earth enough to actually be able to put pen to paper and share my incredible Brewers Cup experience.
Late last November the Climpson’s got to play tour guide to three of our lovely customers for a quick and action-packed trip to Minas Gerais via Sao Paulo, Brazil. This was less of a buying trip and more of an opportunity to round out our knowledge!
