ABOUT THIS COFFEE
The roast degree for our seasonal blend is a little more developed (darker) than our individual single origins - making it easier to use for espresso brewing and imparting it with less acidity. Also the right choice for those who enjoy more 'traditional' flavour profiles.
To achieve the more ‘traditional’ flavours Monastery have opted for a 3 part blend using a natural Brazilian, a natural Ethiopian and also a washed Colombian. This brings chocolate, fruit and sweet notes to the balance of this coffee.
“For our seasonal blend we combine ethically traded and in-season single origin coffees to create something both delicious and dependable. The coffee beans in this blend began as the seeds of coffee cherries - the seasonal fruit of a tropical forest shrub, grown predominantly in East Africa, Central and South America and Southeast Asia. Before being roasted by us, those raw seeds had to be nurtured, carefully hand picked when ripe, fermented, dried and exported. It is a long supply chain fraught with difficulties - that sip of coffee you're enjoying began a long way away and is the result of the hard work of many people.”
ABOUT THIS ROASTER
Monastery Coffee is a small batch coffee roastery based in Adelaide, South Australia. Working around the clock to deliver traceable and sustainable coffee.
“To us 'traceable' designates two key things - quality and provenance; we only roast coffees of the highest quality and coffees that are traded in a traceable and sustainable manner. We feel as the roaster it is our role to firstly - roast only to preserve and highlight the individual qualities inherent in each coffee due to the meticulous work of the producers, and secondly - to make sure you know who those producers are and where your coffee came from”.
Monastery believe in an economically sustainable supply chain, wherin everybody from the consumer to the farmer is empowered. For that reason they only roast coffees that are sourced in an ethical, transparent and responsible manner. They go to lengths to ensure all players in the supply chain are remunerated fairly and have access to the same knowledge - most pertinently those in producing countries, who are currently benefiting the least from trade and simultaneously bearing the most risk.
Together we can change that.
