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.


The other side of the blend is another Climpson classic with this marking the fifth year we have bought all we can from Finca La Cumbre. La Cumbre is owned and managed by producer Juan Bernardo, now into his 11th season of coffee production in the micro-region of Petatan, Huehuetenango. Nearing the border with Mexico, the area of Huehuetenango offers some of our favourite Guatemalan cup profiles. The higher altitude brings cooler evening climates which affects a slower maturation of coffee cherries. This weather also extends the required drying time for processed coffee allowing complex flavours to develop as well as adding to the green coffee's longevity.
