As the seasons change, so does our TEAMWORK espresso, highlighting the very best single origin coffees throughout the year. We’re looking for coffees that are balanced and sweet, delicious in milk, and with enough complexity to be enjoyed straight up.
At this time of the year we look towards Nicaragua for our Teamwork espresso, a country that has provided us with some fantastic coffees over the last two years. This coffee comes from the nature reserve Datanlí - El Diablo, in the Isabelia mountain range, Jinotega. Datanlí is an indigenous word that means “where water falls” and this region has one of the richest and most diverse ecosystems in Nicaragua.
For us, this coffee is everything we would expect from this part of the world. It’s super balanced and sweet and makes a beautiful espresso! With notes of toffee and raisin, this coffee is a great all rounder, and tastes delicious, with or without milk.
Today, nearly half of coffee production comes from countries predicted to lose more than 60% of land suitable for growing coffee. As temperatures rise and extreme weather becomes more frequent, coffee farming is becoming increasingly difficult and less profitable for many producers across the globe. World Coffee Research is a non-profit organisation providing farmers with the tools, knowledge, and plants necessary to adapt in a changing climate. Together with our importing partners Caravela, we are donating €0.50c from every kilogram of TEAMWORK Seasonal Espresso to support their work.
