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

The coffees from Finca San Jeronimo Miramar are some of our all-time favourites and since our first visit in 2016 we have been thoroughly captivated by their approach to coffee and biodiversity. Having worked with their coffees every year since we are lucky enough to have their honey processed Bourbon add their trademark sticky sweetness to the festive blend.

Finca San Jeronimo Miramar is now overseen by fourth generation producers Giorgio and Gina Bressani. The first generation of the Bressani family started out with a modest dairy farm on the slopes of Volcán Atitlán which has now grown to encompass honey, cheese, fruit and specialty coffee production. Since taking charge of the coffee side of the family operation Giorgio and Gina have set in motion a number of changes that now sets them apart as some of the most progressive producers we have met.
Working in tandem with nature has led to new ways and means of producing their own in-house fertilizer. The manure from their dairy cows now provide a natural source of soil nutrition and keeps many of the important elements of the ecosystem within the farm. Weeds are now cut back and allowed to provide organic mulch as opposed to spraying with chemicals whilst a small on-site lab has been breeding a natural response to coffee borer beetles. Cultivating natural fungus and microscopic wasps that target the borer beetles, the San Jeronimo team are using science to holistically fight back. Whilst these processes may be more time consuming the resulting improvement in soil health, coffee quality and the return of wildlife is certainly worth the effort. Providing more jobs for the local community and bringing different parts of the farm together for a common purpose also underpin the inclusive Bressani family ethos.

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!
