From the Roasters
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.
Tolima is famous for its steep mountains, abundant water and deep valleys which creates the perfect recipe for good agriculture. Between the high mountains, wind blows up from the Rioblanco River and through the coffee fields. This provides great drying conditions for the small community of growers that contributed to this lot. With flavours of persimmon and brown sugar, you can expect a juicy, sweet and well balanced espresso with lots of caramels in milk.
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.
