Broadway Blend

Our Broadway Blend emphasises closer relationships with many of the same coffees selected each year for their unique representations of origin and processing. While 2020 has been far from normal, at the very least we can still celebrate two of the coffees that have carried us through with our festive edition of the Broadway Blend.

The Details

Both components are variations of two recent highlights with Hambella’s natural process having run as The Fields whilst the COMSA Co-op have been regularly supplying us with our Broadway Blend base. Alternating the processing for this limited edition we have paired the classic citrus of Hambella’s washed Ethiopian with COMSA’s honey process adding a dense, buttery and boozy sweetness.

Grown at over 1,900m the Hambella farm is home to some of Ethiopia's most sophisticated producers and a regular Climpson favourite. The family-owned METAD agricultural group are specialty coffee pioneers with all coffee hand-picked, sorted and washed before drying on raised beds for up to 3 weeks. This year we have been lucky enough to roast both their washed and natural processed lots with each one a trademark representation of floral and fruit-forward Ethiopian coffee.
 
The other side of this blend comes from our friends at the COMSA Cooperative. COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala) is a growing collective of neighbouring farmers set in Marcala, La Paz. Starting in 2001 with 69 local producers they have set out to improve their communities coffee and livelihoods through sustainable organic production. Now they represent over 1,200 members and provide training in organic farm regeneration, water management and wildlife conservation. The improved quality and prices continue to motivate producing families and act as a beacon of inspiration as to the long-term sustainability of organic specialty practices.
