Often we hear people say how much they love coffee from a particular country. As roasters though, we know that there can be big swings in flavour within a country. So, with this series we are hoping to demonstrate :

  1. The differences that can exist in coffees within a country, according to a few simple differences.
  2. That coffee is a wonderfully variable product, often with subtle differences.
  3. That to move beyond a basic appreciation of coffee, there are small things you can do to bring about changes in flavour.

In the Third Set  we are focusing on Different Origins.

Coffee of the week

Guatemala La Colina – Bourbon

Cupping score: 87

White Grape, Passion Fruit, Lemon

La Colina farm, translated into “The Hill”, is called like this because of the elevations of the land, and the hill on which it is located. It was the father of Tony Medina who decided to give the farm this name. He inherited the plot from his dad, who distributed his farm as smaller plots among all his children. Initially, Tony planted only basic grains like corn and beans. But he also says that it has always been his dream to have a coffee farm. In 1991, the first coffee tree was planted.

What is 85+

Coffee is graded on a system called the Q Grading system. This system grades the quality of coffee out of 100 points. Specialty Coffee is any coffee graded at 80 or higher, we only buy coffees graded by coffee professionals at 85 or higher—85+.

Not to mention we bring 90% of our coffees from origin to the Port of Cork, reducing our carbon footprint, and increasing quality.

This is our ethos, it is who we are, and by partnering with us you in turn are part of the WE in—WE ARE 85+

Bought the Home Brew course for my sister and wife as a gift. They loved it. Sister said "Great way to spend a few hours and you'd learn a lot from it! Cormac knowledge of all things coffee is 'unbrewlievable' ". Brock, 'the badger' sponsors our Aussie Rules Football club, the Leeside Lions. We start most game days with a trip to Barrick street to get us up and running!!!
