The secret to world-class flavour isn’t actually a secret. The best coffee beans in the world are 80+ specialty Arabica beans. They’re grown by small producers focused on quality. They’re shade-grown and ripen naturally rather than sun-forced to ripen quickly. They’re handpicked when ripe rather than machine harvested. Then they’re pre-blended and roasted in small batches. And they’re fresh.
Well done – you’ve found exceptional ethical coffee.
“My lifelong love of coffee was kickstarted at the age of seven, when I mastered the Italian stove-top coffee maker my mother had brought home. She’d said I was only allowed to drink coffee when I could make it myself.”
