How We Do It
Single Origin and Blends
Or mission is quite simply to seek out single origin coffees with a unique flavour profile that will suit all tastes and create a consistent quality experience.
We strive to find hidden gems that allow us to develop unique profiled coffees in both single origin and blended coffees.
It is an art to find single origin coffees that will stand alone in all coffee formats as the coffee has to work in all speciality coffee beverages.
When we find quality coffee that has a beautiful flavour but does not stand alone, we blend some collectively to create a balanced punchy blend of distinction.
As a Craft company we are motivated to challenge the norm and we constantly seek out single origin coffees from across the coffee belt to bring some unique flavours and coffees to the Irish Market.
We have focused on perfecting single origin Arabica coffees of the highest grades by multiple test roasting and profiling to ensure consistency in cup and to ensure we have hit the optimum sweet spot of a particular coffee.
We aim offer a variety in choice, meeting customer and consumer expectations.
Our coffees are selected from a single origin, a farm that has a unique taste profile and only the highest grades. We offer single-origin coffees from Brazil, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mexico, Costa Rica Nicaragua and Indonesia to name a few, allowing customers to choose from many flavour profiles and to understand the story behind each individual farm.
