Kickback coffee

The roaster:

Founded by Alex, Kickback started ten years ago with Alex roasting as a hobby in his kitchen. Today Kickback have a roastery and cafe at The Old Brickworks in Pott Shrigley, Cheshire. Based in the Peak District Kickback love the outdoors and all things adventure. As such they have chosen to team up with City of Trees to help plant trees around Greater Manchester. Their goal is  to get every team member at Kickback Coffee to actually go out and plant the trees, to shift some soil, get dirty and really become invested in making change for the planet. They are also proud members of 1% for the planet, which means 1% of revenue goes to non-profit organisations that focus on environmental causes.

The coffee:

Costa Rica has the right elevation, temperature, and rainfall that is considered ideal for coffee production. This coffee comes from a farm that was founded in 2003 as a family project to continue the legacy of the coffee farming from generation to generation. Their main purpose in the commercialization of the coffee is to preserve the attributes and quality that make Tarrazú coffee a unique product with great worldwide recognition. Tarrazú is one of the four best districts surrounding the capital of San Jose, including Tres Rios, Heredia and Alajuela. The water and soil, rich and deep with a thick layer of volcanic origin, along with the climate, are irreplaceable factors that make the coffee grown in these areas truly remarkable.

We love this roaster because of all the amazing charitable initiatives they support, including 1% for the planet! This coffee is super fruity and makes for a lovely Chemex filter coffee.
