Feed your Elf's Habit


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 first Set  we are focusing on Processing Method.

Coffee of the week

Costa Rica:Fidel El Centro

Cupping score: 86.5

Plum, Cocoa Nibs, Salted Caramel

Fidel El Centro is a family project. In 2013 They participated for the first time in the contest Cup of Excellence.  They came 1st place with Fidel farm. In 2014, with their other farms, they obtained 10th place. In 2015 they achieved 7th place.

The farm was acquired in 2004. The former owner, an elderly man with delicate health, decided to sell it to our family. His name was “Don Fidel Méndez”, hence the name of this representative small farm.

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+

I'm no coffee connoisseur, but someone who works on the road I drink quite an amount of coffee on the daily, so I know a good coffee when I get one, i called into this fine establishment and got what i can only describe as the best coffee of my life, the coffee itself was spectacular the temperature of the drink was absolutely perfect and the staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Very much so plused with my experience here and would highly recommend. Definitely call back in when in Cork again.
