Manuel's Open Letter to NYC & Coffee Masters

This past April, one of our roasters, Manuel Borsato, competed in the London Coffee Masters at the London Coffee Festival. Having placed a respectable 5th, we were so excited to be able to send Manuel to the Big Apple to compete at the New York Coffee Masters in September. Below are some of his reflections on the competition and his experiences in NYC!

The Best English AeroPress Recipe

Two weeks ago, Climpson & Sons took a trip over to Dublin for the World of Coffee Festival. As well as having our own stand, we also took the opportunity to enjoy some of the other offerings and events taking place.
On the Wednesday we hosted a cupping club with Clement and Pekoe at Indigo & Cloth. It’s always great to do cuppings outside of London, as it helps to collate feedback on our coffee from new and unique perspectives. One of the most exciting parts of our trip was watching our very own Matt Randell compete in the World Aeropress Competition. Earlier in the year, Matt was crowned English Aeropress Champion, and was in Dublin for his shot at the title of World Champion.

Welcome and Grab a Drink from the Coffee Masters

Those who are familiar with Climpson & Sons probably already know that a lot of what we do goes beyond our London Fields Roastery and our flagship cafe on Broadway Market. Aside from our wholesale operation, we also take part in a wide variety of events like the Coffee Masters and Brewer's Cup Competitions at this year's London Coffee Festival, Coffee In Good Spirits at Generation Coffee, the Roasting Competition at the Glasgow Coffee Festival, Cup North in Manchester and England Aeropress Championships. A good deal of time these past few years has also been spent looking at the way we source and roast our coffee, working towards building sustainable relationships with partners along the whole line of production, as well as further developing existing relationships with customers, new and old, foreign and domestic.
