Beyond Blend - Sticking to our belief in seasonality we have modelled the Beyond similar to the Embassy blend. After few different attempts and combinations, we believe we have found the current sweet spot. A compelling mix of two Colombians; a washed bright and clean washed coffee from Jairo Arcila's Santa Monica farm, complemented by a sweet and complex honey anaerobic process coffee from smallholders in Apote, Nariño.

What is Beyond? - When we think of the word “Beyond” we think about the possibility of something that is greater than the current.  For us, it represents the countless flavours that origins have to offer which are yet to be revealed to us. Currently served as our black espresso offering, Beyond was created not by choice but with what was available at the time. With the combination of global climate change and global pandemic, coffee producing origins have been presented with numerous difficulties in production and shipping. These difficulties have had a direct roll on effect to us as coffee roasters which has resulted in what we now call Beyond.

The Origins

Colombia Santa Monica

Flavour Profile - Citrus, White Chocolate, Stonefruits

Process - Washed

Produced by Jairo Arcila, this coffee is harvested with strict criteria regarding ripeness of the cherries. They are floated and hand sorted to remove any defect cherries - this is an effective way to find any defects as they float while the good cherries sink.

Once sorted, the cherries are then fermented underwater for 30 hours, pulped, then gently washed and dried in temperature controlled conditions until the ideal moisture content is reached.

This microlot is 100% Caturra; this variety is originally from Minas Gerais in Brazil, and is a natural mutation of Red Bourbon. The plants are grown in volcanic ash soil at 1450-1500 MASL in temperatures between 18-28c.

Colombia Aponte

Process - Honey Anaerobic 

This honey processed coffee is grown by smallholders from the rural town of Aponte, Nariño, who are members of La Cooperativa de Cafes Especiales de Nariño. The locals of Aponte are indigenous Inga people, historically related to the Inca - Aponte was once the northernmost point of the Incan empire, which stretched down through neighbouring countries Peru and Ecuador.

Once the cherries are picked following strict ripeness criteria, they are exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation period of 40 hours. The cherries are then pulped at each farm’s wet mill, or “micro-beneficio”, and placed on drying beds without being washed at temperatures under 35 degrees until ideal moisture content is achieved. This leaves a layer of mucilage on the coffee, similar-looking to sticky honey - hence the name of this processing method.
