The Story

Our Broadway Blend emphasises closer farm and import relationships working with many of the same coffees each year, selected for their unique representations of origin and terroir. This is our go-to balanced espresso on Broadway Market and pairs perfectly with milk.


The Details

The coffees from Café Granja La Esperanza are some of all time highlights with Climpson Barista Trainer Lisa-Laura winning the UKBrC and competing at the World Brewers Cup with two of their limited edition micro-lots. For this espresso we have selected a more balanced Caturra & Colombia lot. Grown at 1750 - 1,800 masl only perfectly ripe cherries are hand picked, mechanically pulped and fermented in clean water for over 20 hours. Colombia's humidity and changing climate can make effective drying a challenge with Café Granja opting to use low temperature mechanical driers to ensure the consistency and stability of the coffee before export.

On the other side of the blend we have selected a classic Brazil from Fazenda Santissimo, located within Patrocínio, Minas Gerais. Having only recently moved to specialty coffee production this is the first season this coffee has been exported to the UK. Having met farm owner Juninho in Brazil we cupped his coffee alongside local legends Bruno Souza and local agronomy specialist Marquinho do Cerrdao. Fazenda Santissimo had been working with both parties to improve quality and yields with promising results after only 2 years. His farm is divided into separate sections by variety with this lot comprised of Red Catuai. Red Catuai is a hybrid variety hailing from Mundo Novo and Caturra, historically developed within Brazil by the Campinas Agronomic Institute (IAC). As a high yielding, shorter stature coffee plant, Catuai is hugely popular in Brazil and now forms the basis of close to half of their specialty varieties.
