Foundation An icon for our foundation genre coffee.

Foundation

The coffees curated in the foundation genre are balanced and clean. They will be complex with low bitterness and a pleasing acidity. Flavor like this can only be achieved by growing the right coffee in the right place and paying meticulous attention to detail during the harvesting process.

Yetu Tamu, Tanzania


Based in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania, the Mambo cooperative union was formed in 2011 by the visionary Athanasio Massenha. Seeing a growth in demand for specialty coffee, but not seeing the profits returning to producers, the organisation was established to provide a proper income for local farmers.

The washed Bourbon and Kent varieties provide a deep balanced sweetness, with notes of green apple, raisin and chocolate.

Sitio PInhalzinho, Brazil


High in the mountainous region of Divinolandia, South East Brazil, lies Sitio Pinhalzinho. Facing the growing challenges of shifting climate and extreme weather, Sergio Luis Riccetto’s commitment to the land and sustainable processes have allowed his farm to produce consistently stunning lots, in the face of increasingly trying conditions.

Naturally processed, this 100% Red Catuai has notes of plum, muscovado and praline.
