The coffee beans you brew are actually the processed and roasted seeds from a fruit, which is called a coffee cherry. Even though the coffee beans are seeds, they are referred to as "beans" because of their resemblance to true beans. Coffee trees can grow to more than 9 meters and live up to 100 years!!
This organic blend brings together two fantastic coffees from female producers in Guatemala and Peru. Both coffee beans have an amazing story of empowerment, hope and female entrepreneurship:
- The Peruvian coffee is part of the Cafe Femenino co-op, a project set up by women from Cecanor, Peru to encourage and support female coffee producers. This co-op not only supports and empowers other female coffee producers, but it also provides a path for their daughters and a vision that they can grow up to become leaders in their community—just like their mothers and grandmothers.
- The Guatemalan coffee comes from a group of women coffee producers all who lost their husbands during the civil war and coffee crisis of 2001-2004.
Now what does it taste like? The tasting notes include red berries, orange and chocolate with some nutty notes.
How to Use these Coffee Beans
The roasters recommend a brew ration of 1:2.5 for an espresso, so grind 18g of these beans, and let it run through the espresso machine until you have 45g / 45ml coffee.
Organic Blend Coffee Beans (Peruvian & Guatemalan)
Ingredients: Coffee beans
For allergens see ingredients in bold.
Due to the way our food is stored and packaged, this product may contain traces of other allergens due to cross-contamination.
Your beans’ greatest enemies are air, moisture, heat, and light.
Store in an air tight container in a dark, cool, dry place. A cabinet near the oven is often too warm, and so is a spot on the kitchen counter that gets strong afternoon sun.
To keep the great flavour, use within 1 month. The coffee will keep for up to 6 months but the flavour won't be as good. See best before date.
