The Volcanic Limited Edition - £28

This gift is made up of a selection of our new season, limited parcel, Microlots from Costa Rica, Guatemala and El Salvador.

We work closely with farmers across the world to source the best speciality coffee for you, our customers. This summer we visited Costa Rica, Guatemela and El Salvador where we found three special microlots from our partners there. Like with all of our microlots, they are from a specific part of a farm, so once they are gone, they’re gone. So be sure to keep an eye on when these special lots are available. The gift box contains...

  • Genesis, is a standout Microlot from Costa Rica. Oscar and Olga work very hard to create this magical place where speciality coffee is grown. This particular Microlot has notes of red berries, dried fruit and brown sugar.

  • El Topacio, El Salvador, this Microlot has sweet honey with the soft acidity of passionfruit and tangerine. Very sweet and juicy. Delicious passion fruit and tangerine-like acidity upfront leading to a syrupy mouthfeel reminiscent of sugar syrup and melted chocolate.

  • Mirtala, Guatemala, our first Microlot from Mirtala Lucas, a balanced filter with delicate acidity and a malt caramel finish. Bursting with white grapes turning into black tea tannins before a malt and caramel finish.
