As the seasons change, so does our TEAMWORK espresso, highlighting the very best single origin coffees throughout the year. Calendar are looking for coffees that are balanced and sweet, delicious in milk, and with enough complexity to be enjoyed straight up.
This coffee is from a group of 5 farmers in Pitalitio, Huila, considered one of the largest and most important producing regions in Colombia. Here, three mountain ranges converge, to form the Macizo Colombiano, an area where the climate, altitude and rich fertile soils are perfect for growing quality coffee. We all love this espresso for its intense sweetness and well rounded body. Look for flavours of caramel and honey with an orange acidity that cuts through milk beautifully!
Today, nearly half of coffee production comes from countries predicted to lose more than 60% of land suitable for growing coffee by 2050. 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 €0.50 from every Kg of TEAMWORK Seasonal Espresso to support their work.
