more information

We now offer multiple espresso grind options: the domestic grind is slightly coarser, perfect for home espresso machines from Sage or De'Longhi; and the commercial grind is the finer option, more suited towards commercial machines from La Marzocco, Sanremo.

Broadway Blend

Our Broadway Blend emphasises closer farm and import relationships with many of the same coffees selected each year for their unique representations of origin and terroir. The focus is on high quality, sustainable and complimentary coffees with the blend evolving with fresh harvest arrivals. This is our go-to espresso on Broadway Market and pairs perfectly with milk.

Both of these Broadway Blend components are recent highlights from our single origin range. Now roasted to match the crisp Summer mornings this is our go-to espresso on Broadway Market with two washed coffees creating a blend that is as balanced as it is sustainable.

The Details

As an all-time favourite for so many staff and customers, we seek out this same coffee from the Sasaba Washing Station each year. Located deep in the Guji Zone of Ethiopia’s Oromia Region, the Sasaba Washing Station produces coffees that have come to represent our ongoing quest for quality, consistency and balance. Overseen by owner Tsegaye Hagos Tesfaye, Sasaba buys cherries from local Guji smallholders and processes both washed and natural lots. Their rigid standards of pre-sorting, lot separation and a 48-72 hour washed fermentation results in a coffee that is remarkably consistent and crisp. With most local farmers tending to fewer than 20 coffee trees the scale of Sasaba’s output is a truly collaborative effort.

Situated at high altitude in the Peruvian region of Cajamarca is the town of Barro Negro. Here three neighbouring farmers have combined their harvest capacity to showcase a unique micro-region that is committed to sustainable and organic coffee production. Producers Ines Carrasco, Teotista Cruz & Esperanza Coronado each preside over about 1 hectare of land with sustenance fruit trees interspersed with their Caturra, Typica and Bourbon coffee trees. All three are founding members of the Alpes Andinos Association, a collective of coffee growers promoting higher quality, sustainable productivity and community empowerment. Only organic fertilizer is used and comes from coastal Peru where large sea bird populations excrete a rich combination of nutrients that works perfectly for coffee growth. During harvest cherries are floated, sorted and washed using crisp water from the nearby El Mirador Mountain.
