Guatemala Yes She Can cafè de Mujeres
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
Empowerment in a cup | Rain is something Nuevo Oriente, in eastern Guatemala, is never short of. The average annual rainfall exceeds 2,000 mm, and the soil is deeply weathered, providing ideal conditions for growing this fine coffee, which has a taste reminiscent of caramel, pecan nuts and tropical fruit. But there is more to this single-origin coffee than just its round taste profile. What makes it really special is the group of 19 spirited women who run the Café de Mujeres project. When harvesting, they take great care to only pick ripe, red coffee cherries. The beans are then wet-processed, sieved, sorted and packed, and we buy them directly from these amazing women. Café de Mujeres is best suited for filter coffee machines, French press, Karlsbader pots, Aeropress coffee makers and moka pots.

Papua New Guinea
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
Great things in small packages | The smallholders of Papua New Guinea don’t grow their coffee on classic-style plantations. This coffee with its gentle flowery aroma is grown in coffee gardens – small plots that usually have room for no more than 20 plants. With a landscape characterised by mountain ranges, steep valleys and remote plateaus, the plots are hard to reach. This often requires the coffee to be collected by planes landing on grass runways. These farmers grow their coffee without using any synthetic fertilisers or chemical pesticides. The coffee cherries are either processed by hand pulper or brought to the central washing station. PSC stands for Premium Smallholder Coffee – a fully deserved designation.

Nepal Mount Everest Supreme
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
Premium quality from the world’s northernmost growing area | This coffee has a long history. It was brought from Myanmar to Nepal by a monk in 1939, and it is cultivated with great effort in what has become the world’s northernmost coffee growing area. Established in 1994, the Plantec Coffee Estate lies 70 km north of Kathmandu, in a valley with an unusually mild climate for its latitude. The success of this project was made possible by many years of hard work. Now, the soil has been reforested, wildlife is being protected and the coffee is grown according to organic cultivation. This Himalayan coffee is wet-processed and sun-dried. It stands out with its fine herbal notes and its slightly fruity, somewhat nutty aftertaste with notes of dark chocolate. A real gem for filter coffee drinkers.

Colombia Hacienda Misiones Moka
Good on the palate and good to the farmers | As soon as you open the package, a fine, sweet scent wafts out. It doesn’t take a connoisseur to know that what you are holding is a top-tier coffee. One sip leaves no room for doubt, filling your mouth with an exciting mix of light citrus grapefruit notes and spicy-peppery nuances. This is a cup you can enjoy in every respect, because we import the green coffee directly from the Finca Misiones, so that the workers who grow and harvest it receive a fair wage. But there’s more: part of the proceeds are used to finance eco-social projects, including the schooling of the farmers’ children and the sustainable cultivation of the land. Misiones Moka grows under optimal geographical and climatic conditions on volcanic soils in the south of Bogotá, where the coffee cherries are harvested and processed manually with great care and diligence, before developing its full aroma thanks to the gentle, slow roasting process at our facilities.

Ethiopia Limu Tega & Tula Farm
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
A sweet gourmet coffee from East Africa | In Limu, farmers cultivate their coffee plants according to ecological principles. The plants grow in small plots situated at an altitude ranging from 1,600 to 1,900 metres, making this a real highland coffee. After harvesting, the farmers bring the cherries straight to their cooperative facilities, where they are washed, checked and processed. After separating the fruit flesh from the skin, the seeds are left to ferment together with the pulp in controlled water tanks. Then the bean parchment is spread on drying beds. The result is a balanced, slightly sweet gourmet coffee that gives its aromatic best as a filter coffee.

Honduras CO² Deca Bio
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
The mood lifter from Honduras | Honduras CO2 is the perfect choice for those who want to indulge in dark roast flavours without the caffeine. Before hitting the drum roaster, these beans go through a very gentle CO2 decaffeination process. During the long roasting that ensues, the master roaster “tickles” the last fruity notes out of the fragrant beans. This is the final leg of their long journey, one that starts in the municipality of Siguatepeque, Honduras. There, the 116 local coffee growers deliver the cherries to Prona, a cooperative established in 2008 that supports its members by providing help with training, wastewater management, organic certification and more. This all-round enjoyable, wonderfully aromatic coffee has a pleasant aftertaste and is available in two forms: whole beans and ground.

Congo Lake Kivu
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
A speciality from Lake Kivu | Did you know that the taste of African Arabica is entirely different from the taste of its Central American or Asian counterparts? It is what makes coffee lovers so keen to try out different single-origin coffees. This organically grown speciality from Congo is named after Lake Kivu, where Bourbon and Catuaí varieties are planted near the shores. The local farmers belong to the Sopacdi organisation, which markets coffee without intermediaries. To them, coffee is an important source of income in a country that is regrettably still affected by corruption and political instability. Filter coffee connoisseurs will appreciate this coffee’s fine aroma, ripe fruitiness and balanced body.

Brazil Santos Alta Moggiana Cioccolatato
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
The chocolate side of coffee | If you are looking for a smooth, harmonious single-origin coffee, Brazil Cioccolatato is just the thing. It is grown in Guaxupé, a locality in south-eastern Brazil. One of the country’s largest export companies, Guaxupé Exports, is responsible for performing quality controls as well as exporting the green coffee to Europe. This coffee is full-bodied but soft and round at the same time. Its chocolaty and nutty notes unfold to their full potential when prepared with a fully automatic coffee machine or moka pot.

India Monsooned Malabar AA
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
By courtesy of the monsoon | Hugely popular among connoisseurs, Indian coffees owe their moderate acidity and good balance to India’s special climate. India Monsooned Malabar is THE Indian coffee par excellence. It is grown on the Karadykan Estate, in the southern Indian province of Karnataka. The plantations cover steep mountain slopes and are home to up to 50 different species of trees and plants, which provide welcome shading for the coffee plants. But what makes Monsooned Malabar so special is its unique processing method. After being harvested, the coffee beans are stored in jute sacks for four months and exposed to the special climate of the monsoon season. This is how the coffee develops its unparalleled cup profile and aroma – to some, it’s the best coffee in the world. Try it as an espresso, or treat yourself to an Indian twist with this recipe for Masala coffee: boil cinnamon and cardamom seeds in milk. Add the brewed coffee and shake vigorously before serving. Enjoy!

Brazil Santos Bio
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
Quality organic coffee from Brazil | If you have a sweet spot for chocolaty notes and quality organic coffee, you will be delighted with Brasil Santos Bio and its lingering aftertaste of nougat, caramel and almond. This organic coffee is grown in southern Minas Gerais, Brazil, where coffee cultivation represents the main source of income for a large part of the local population. So, it is no surprise that this area accounts for half of Brazil’s entire coffee production. However, as certified-organic coffee plants have a comparatively lower yield and require more effort and commitment than conventionally grown plants, this type of coffee is hard to come by in Brazil. The beans for this rarity coffee are sourced from several smallholder organic farms, and blended together to create a unique cup profile.

Colombia Finca Misiones Castillo
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
A treat for filter coffee drinkers | A big favourite of coffee connoisseurs, Misiones Colombia has lovely sweet notes of wild berries and redcurrant, and a light note of cocoa. Its flavours fill the mouth and flatter the palate at the first sip. Misiones Colombia is made from coffee cherries that grow slowly at 1,600 to 1,800 metres on the steep volcanic slopes of the Andes. The cherries are harvested by hand with great care, then washed and de-pulped to be fed into the fermentation plant. As a final step, the coffee beans are dried. To ensure that the workers receive a fair wage for all their work, we buy the Misiones Colombia green coffee directly from Finca Misiones. You can relish this excellent filter coffee knowing that every cup you enjoy supports a local project in Colombia. With its clear, full body and delightfully creamy taste, this high-quality coffee is a must-have in every filter coffee fan’s cupboard – as confirmed by its SCA score of 88 points.

Honduras White Honey Finca Rio Colorado
Mahlgrad: coffee beans | Weight: 250
So young, so good | This coffee is good, very good. Even more, it’s doubly good. Firstly, because despite being young it scores 84 SCA points. Secondly, because it does a lot of good to the Celaque National Park area. Finca Rio Colorado is a coffee project led by local coffee growers together with international coffee experts. The farmers produce high-quality green coffee practising eco-sustainable cultivation: while they replant forests, maintain apiaries and protect the precious water resources, they also make a living from growing coffee. The Rio Colorado project supports social initiatives such as the creation of a virtual library for children and young people as well as the local clinic. Last but not least, it is through this project that a coffee school has been set up. We are very proud to be part of it.

Ethiopia Gesha Village Shwea Jibabu
One of the rarest, most unique coffees in the world | With its sweet, flowery and lemony notes, this exquisite coffee is a feast for the palate. Gesha Village Gourmet Coffee has a pure flavour profile that makes it a favourite of filter coffee drinkers all over the world. Rachel Samuel and Adam Overto grow their coffee at an altitude of 1,900 to 2,000 metres in an area near the South Sudan border, where the fertile soil, adequate rainfall and congenial climate offer perfect conditions for the Gori Gesha variety. Rachel and Adam established their farm only a few years ago, after they fortuitously discovered their passion for Gesha coffee during the shooting of a documentary film on Ethiopia and decided to take wild Gesha plants from the forest and cultivate them. They manage their farm in harmony with nature, and all farming, processing and sorting activities are carried out under strict supervision. It didn’t take long for the world to become aware of and enthusiastic about the Gesha variety… and rightly so. With its pure, clear aromas, this coffee has bagged a well-deserved SCA score of 87.25 points. If you have the chance to try it, don’t miss it!
