We love this seasonal blend from the guys at Flying Horse. Based in London, they are the only coffee producer we've come across whose coffee bags are made from sugar cane - a sustainable solution that is sure to become universally adopted in years to come. Very inspiring.

The Coffee:

Ethiopia, said to be the originator of coffee was first discovered by a farmer “Kaldi” in 850 AD!

The story goes that Kaldi first discovered coffee after he noticed his goats had eaten particluar berries and became so energetic that they did not sleep at night.
His exhilaration prompted him to bring the berries to a monk in a nearby monastery, but the monk disapproved of their use and threw them into a fire, from which an enticing aroma billowed.

The roasted beans were quickly raked from the embers, ground up, dissolved in hot water, yielding the world's first cup of coffee! Limu offers sweet, citrus and floral notes in the cup. It’s juicy, bright and keeps you holding onto that summer feeling just a little bit longer.
