The Story

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.

For our neighbourhood's spring blend we are working with two coffees from some of our longest standing relationships.

The coffees from Padah-Lin have been a long standing favourite of ours and are the work of more than 50 smallholder farmers from the remote area of Ywangan within Myanmar’s Southern Shan State. Farmers contribute their daily picking of coffee cherries which is then transported to Mandalay for sorting and processing. As a washed processed lot the cherries are first floated (to separate under and over ripes) before being pulped, washed again in clean water and dried on concrete patios. The remaining pulped coffee fruit and wastewater is recycled for use back on the community's farms.
Most Ywangan producers have relatively small farms of less than 3 acres so, in working together, the neighbouring farms contribute to a larger collective output. The predominant variety produced here is Red Catuai with smaller amounts Caturra, Typica and Catimor hybrids also replacing the fields of poppies that once supplied an opium trade. In return, coffee has begun to provide these farmers with a more consistent and legitimate source of income, offering hope for a country that is still navigating its way out of decades of oppression and unrest.

The other side of this blend is another Climpson classic and 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. We have now bought a range of coffees from COMSA over the past 6 years and their constantly improving quality and prices continue to motivate producing families and act as a beacon of inspiration for the long-term sustainability of organic specialty coffee.

Our ambition is to continue sourcing, roasting and crafting the finest coffees from the heart of East London.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What date will my coffee be roasted?

    We aim to ship our coffee as fresh as possible, however you may receive coffee roasted up to 7 days prior to the shipping date.

  • What grind type should I choose?

    We offer multiple grind options from Cafetiere to Espresso and everything between. Our domestic espresso grind is slightly coarser and is perfect for home espresso machines, such as DeLonghi or Sage whereas the commercial espresso grind is better suited to commercial machines like La Marzocco or Sanremo. If you’re not sure what grind to choose please get in touch with our team at admin@climpsonandsons to see how they can help.

  • Can I order 1kg of coffee?

    This is not something we currently offer but why not consider helping us reduce packaging by ordering a 2kg bag instead? Wholebean coffee has a longer shelf life than you might think, up to 3 months!
