Foundation An icon for our foundation genre coffee.


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.

Short Capsule Short

Sitio Pirapitinga

At less than 6 hectares and sitting at 1300masl, Sitio Pirapitinga is somewhat of a diamond in the rough amongst Brazil’s traditional sprawling, low-altitude farms. Owner Nilson Mengali has taken great care in processing this microlot, delivering an uncharacteristic deep-fruit flavour profile.

As a short capsule, Sitio Pirapitinga has notes of date upfront, with cacao and hazelnut.

Long Capsule Long

Twongerekawa Coko

Twongerekawa Coko is a small co-op producing excellent coffee in Rwanda’s Gakenke District. Coffees from Twongerekawa undergo a long, double fermentation process, delivering a juicy acidity in the cup — whilst hand-sorting techniques ensure that each lot is of the highest possible quality.

Twongerekawa Coko is deep and fruity with a long sweet finish — expect notes of raspberry, lime and caramel.
