The other coffee from COMSA Co-op in Honduras — a co-op with sustainability and community as its focus —adds a full-bodied caramel and pecan sweetness to this Broadway Blend. #drinklikealocal

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.

A lot from the COMSA Cooperative, comprised of neighbouring smallholder farmers, adds a full-bodied caramel and pecan sweetness to this Broadway Blend. Starting in 2001 with 69 local producers COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala) 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.
