Coffee Name

Old Spike x Rise Blend, Colombia, Honduras, Nicaragua

The Coffee

This washed coffee has been especially created for Rise! The Colombian element brings a hint of fruitiness and mellow sweetness from the traditional Colombian terroir. The Honduran element is sourced from a Bird friendly program, an initiative that supports biodiversity in the local community, this part offers raisin-caramel notes. Finally, the Nicaraguan Coffee from Finca La Aurora is cultivated using only renewable energy and with special care in the conservation of water resources. The farm houses a variety of native trees that provide the plantation with shade and fertilize the soil with organic matter, which protects the land from erosion, droughts, and floods.

Brew Tips: 

For this coffee we would recommend brewing it with a lower temperature water. If you have a precision kettle, set it up at 88 degrees, and if not, leave the water to cool for 1 minute before pouring to reduce the temperature. This will ensure that you are extracting the flavour in a gentle way, giving a sweeter and more balanced cup!

Why we like it: 

We found this coffee to be sweet and balanced with a caramel and toffee base!
