Ranger Blend - We are excited to share with you the information about the coffee you are drinking! Our mission at Coffee Embassy is to always share and help educate as much as possible, being as transparent as possible.  

Before we get stuck into the details of the origins we would like to go over a few of the coffee terms/language we use every day.

What is a Classic Blend? - A Classic Blend is to offer a consistent flavour profile year in year out. Roasted to a more “medium” colour profile. It delivers on body and sweetness with only mild acidity. Paying homage to the more “old school” coffees of the past.

Cup/Quality Score - Scoring coffee is used to define the quality of the coffee. Scores are given to the individual origins. To be considered “Specialty” a coffee must score a minimum of 80/100. Most Specialty coffees score between 80 – 87. Only a few outstanding coffees will score higher than this.

Roast Degree/Type/colour/style - Back in the days of old, coffee roasts were (and still are by some) only described as being light, medium and dark. These descriptions are still relevant to a point but coffee is no longer as straight forward.  These days ones interpretation of colour can vary from roaster to roaster.  We try to triangulate roast degree (Temperature) Colour and Development of the roast not just the colour (as different origins can colour differently)

Styles: Spot Seasonal Blend, Seasonal Blend, Modern Blend, Classic Blend, Filter.

The Origins - Now we can get stuck into the coffees themselves.

Brazil:  Samba

Score:  83

Flavour Profile: Caramel, Milk Chocolate, Orange, Brown Spices

Process: Natural 

The Samba Reserve is an exceptional blend of Natural processed coffees. Coffees are grown within 1000-300 m.a.s.l of altitude. Produced by selected coffee growers, farm-level traceability from Carmo de Minas region which is in the South of Minas Gerais.

This coffee was carefully picked in order to select only the ripest cherries. The cherries then underwent a rigorous sorting process using the "lavador" machine, a density sorter commonly used in Brazil to separate the low-density beans. To complete the preparation, the coffee was sun-dried on patios for three days before being finished in mechanical dryers for 72 hours or more, until the optimal moisture level was reached.

 

Colombia:  Popayán Reserve

Score:  83

Flavour Profile: Balanced acidity with notes of chocolate milk and caramel.


Process: Washed

Popayán is located in the department of Cauca at 1.700 m.a.s.l. The regions topography is perfect to grow exceptional coffee!

The so-called Meseta de Popayan is sheltered by the Andes mountain range which helps generate homogeneous climatic and altitudinal characteristics. The result is a balanced cup profile with floral and caramel notes.

We collaborate with approximately 65 growers who contribute to this program and with whom we build long-term relationships. This program also encourages farmers to focus on quality and based on quality assessment we provide up to 20% premiums above the market price.

What is Ranger? - A Classic Espresso Blend named after our good mates at Park Ranger. It delivers a smooth, sweet silky body with mild acidity.

Score:  83.5

Flavour Profile:  Cocoa, Citrus, Caramel
