Why We Like It

Microlot coffee refers to a specific and limited quantity of coffee beans that come from a well-defined, small section or plot within a larger coffee farm. This separation allows coffee producers to isolate and highlight a particular set of coffee beans with distinct characteristics, often resulting in exceptional flavour profiles. Microlots are carefully cultivated, processed, and harvested with extra attention to detail, aiming to produce high-quality, unique, and premium coffee. We love this special coffee for it's unique tasting notes and recommend you give it a try!
