The Roast Of Christmas Past
An exclusive Christmas coffee from Rwamatamu, Rwanda.
Taste Notes: Caramel, syrup & fresh citrus.
Roast Level: 2
Rwamatamu’s coffee farm and washing station are located in Rwanda’s picturesque rolling hills on the banks of Lake Kivu. The climate there features regular rainfall, and the soil is rich and volcanic, which means that the high-quality arabica bean grown there can thrive. For this coffee, smooth, sweet caramel gives way to a fresh, lemony zing on the tongue.
The Roast Of Christmas Present
An exclusive Christmas coffee from La Unión, Peru.
Taste Notes: Cherry, Orange & Shortbread
Roast Level: 3
This year’s Roast of Christmas Present comes to us direct from Peru, delivered to our Roast House in Nottingham courtesy of Father Christmas on a test drive of his new eco-sleigh (probably). The coffee cherries are grown on the slopes of the Andes, and washed with clean mountain water before being left to dry. The tang of the fruit is balanced with sweet, biscuity taste. It makes the perfect accompaniment to a mince pie.
The Roast Of Christmas Future
An exclusive Christmas coffee from Hatuhei, Letefoho, East Timor
Taste Notes: Red Apple & Milk Chocolate
Roast Level: 3
In the remote eastern highlands, at an altitude of 1500-1600 m.a.s.l, coffee thrives with constant sunny days and mild cool nights. Under the shade of the trees, our latest guest coffee has been grown by local small holders who have worked hard to make a name for Timorese coffee. It has a smooth, sweet flavour profile and an earthy, low-level acidity underneath.
A small but powerful player in the industry, Rwanda only has a population of 7 million, and as such is responsible for just 1% of the world’s coffee production. Because of its relatively small size, there are no large coffee estates, and most producers are small holders. But the fertile land makes it perfect for growing the prized Bourbon arabica varietal, and the quality of their coffee is impressive.
Coffee is the main agricultural export of Peru, and coffee farms make up to 40% of all farmland in the nation. The main coffee growing regions are in the north, on the eater slopes of the Andes. Due to these mountainous regions, there is a wide variation in altitudes at which coffee is grown 980 meters to 2169 meters above sea level.
The Portuguese introduced coffee to East Timor when it was their colony for nearly 400 years, but the crop was largely abandoned when the island was annexed by Indonesia in 1975. Now an independent nation state, focus has returned to restoring the crop, which grows in extremely wild and remote regions.
