With our brand new coffee shop opening at the front of our store and above our factory, welcomes our very own coffee blend too. With help from our friends ‘The North Star Coffee Roasters’ in Leeds, we’ve curated the perfect blend for our customers.
We’re hoping to take Manchester by storm with our smooth flat whites and gooey homemade cookies. Coffee snobs, fear not! Let’s talk about the blend...
Components of the blend
45% Brazil Fazenda Rainha da Paz
45% Nicaragua El Madroño
10% Ethiopia Geta Bore
The three coffees we have selected for Factory Coffee’s blend this season mix nutty, caramel-like, stone fruit and milk chocolate notes to build a balanced profile of flavour to suit those who enjoy their espresso drinks with or without milk.
Our relationships with the Montanari family in Brazil support ecologically progressive agriculture (they are reforesting rather than deforesting) working to recreate a healthy ecosystem in Minas Gerais, Patrocinio.
In Nicaragua we have partnered with Caravela Coffee in Nicaragua to find a washed process, mixed varietal coffee from 65 small-scale coffee farmers forming the El Madroño group. This coffee adds depth and a little vibrant acidity to the otherwise chocolatey base of the Brazilian coffee from the Montanari farm Fazenda Rainha da Paz.
To round the blend off, we’ve added a 10% component of washed Ethiopian coffee from the infamous Jimma Zone to add more complexity and aroma through fruity nuances of apricot and mango.
