In October 2011 following months of planning, research and a large dose of caffeine we took delivery of our shiny new 12 kg roaster. Tate Roastery was born! (Tate Roastery is based in Herne Hill) It was fired up and the first seasonal blend was produced, using beans from Guatemala and El Salvador.
We work closely with small importers and estates paying a premium for the finest coffees. This ensures that growers are paid a fair price for their beans. Seasonality is of huge importance; different regions come into crop throughout the year and our blend reflects this. Central America makes up the mainstay throughout the summer months with Brazil arriving at Christmas, while Africa adds distinct flavours throughout the year.
As we come across exciting, unique coffees from single origins these will be made available in limited quantities.
Flavours of chocolate, nuts and red fruits Made up of equal amounts of two beans: Finca La Fany, El Salvador and La Esperanza, Guatemala, each coffee is roasted separately to ensure the natural characteristics of each bean remains in the final cup. Finca La Fany is a family-run farm that has a heritage stretching back to 1870 and is still run by the same family today. The farms 27 hectares hold only the Bourbon varietal coffee trees and sits within the Apaneca Ilamatepec mountains at around 1400 metres above sea level, the crops sheltered from the harsh winds by native trees which support the large population of indigenous birds. La Esperanza is situated in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala and has been with the same family for four generations. This is the highest and driest area of the country under cultivation due mainly to the dry, hot winds that blow into the mountains from Mexico's Tehuantepec plain, protecting the plantations from frost. The farm enjoys a perfect sunlight/rain combination, yielding a rich coffee with chocolate undertones and complex characteristics.
250 gms of ground coffee. Best used within 2 months (but will last longer)
