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.

El Oso, Peru

El Oso lies within in a protected natural ecosystem, with farmers focusing on organic sustainable techniques to protect the vivid array of wildlife found in North Western Peru.

Fertile soils allow for a stunning variety of species to flourish on the farm — Bourbon, Catimor, Caturra, Mundo, Novo & Typica make up this fully washed lot.

A sweet smooth cup, we're tasting juicy Red Apple and Golden Syrup.

Nambala, Tanzania

Located near the borders of Zambia and Malawi in Western Tanzania, the Nambala co-op acts as the central hub for coffee farmers in the district of Songwe.

Farmers make a huge effort to reuse every one of their by-products, with the mulch from maize (the other major local crop) being used to fertilise new coffee trees, capturing moisture within the steep, contour farms.

The results of this washed Bourbon and Kent crop are the perfect fit for our Foundation long capsules — with a deep sweetness and creamy body to the cup, expect notes of blackberry, cashew and cocoa.
