“Our coffee is handcrafted in Sheffield, England’s “City of Steel”, which men of foresight, diligence and enterprise have made famous.”
100% speciality grade Arabica coffee is an investment. We only source our green coffee from single farms and estates in the speciality coffee market, with our focus on quality, provenance, sustainability, freshness and fair relationships with the growers.
Guided by our green bean suppliers, experience and our Ikawa sample roaster, we profile our single origin beans to enhance and develop their individual characteristics and flavours.
Each origin has its own unique growing conditions and processes which impart distinct nuances. We skilfully unlock these, creating an ever surprising, invigorating and truly remarkable taste experience.
We develop our signature espresso blends and single origin coffees in line with the growing seasons and the best harvests from each chosen country.
When we find a coffee that we love, we involve our customers in the tasting and evaluation and only when it meets the highest standard, will it be added to our portfolio.
Our decaf blend is a perfect balance of Peru and Honduras. The blend provides a decaffeinated coffee that boasts the wonderful benefits of great coffee growing countries. A luxurious, velvety smooth body and a exceptional aroma of warming spices. With an impressive sweetness and gentle acidity. The beans have been through a CO2 process to remove the caffeine.
The washed coffees of Yirgacheffe have long been prized for their delicate, tea-like aromatics and clean citrus flavour. Recently, producers in the Gedio region have been reinventing the natural process originally developed in Ethiopia, to offer a completely different profile from this well known origin. The misty Valley is a prime example of fruitiness, complexity and character of Natural Yirgacheffe coffees.
In the cup, the Misty Valley truly delivers. A perfumed strawberry aroma lead to a crisp and complex fruit basket flavour. Lemony sweetness provides a consistent backbone, finishing with a bright pleasant mouthfeel.
The natural drying method used in its production results in a full body with a concentrated flavour, garnished with herbal nuances and spicy finish. The coffee has a low acidity and a richness the lingers on the back corners of the tongue. Notes of chocolate are evident in the finish.
Colombia Huila Des Gigante is an Excelso, sourced from coffee growers producing mainly Caturra and Typica varieties. Grown at an altitude ranging from 1300-1600 meters above sea level. Gigante is known as one of the strongest coffee and cocoa producing areas of Huila, close to the Magdalena River located in the central-eastern part of the Huila region.
The Mountain Water Process involves immersing the coffee beans in water at varying temperature and pressure in order to extract the 99.9% of the caffeine. No chemicals are used, and a filtering process allows the beans to maintain their characteristic flavour.
