Today's coffee, Day 12 of Advent, a coffee from Myanmar roasted by Press Coffee & Co
As part of the growing London speciality coffee scene since 2013, Press Coffee & Co has been dedicated to offering high quality coffees, ethically sourced and sustainably processed. Alice & Ben first met Any right back at the beginning of the Rise journey, when Owner & Founder Andy first invited them to the roastery for a look around. Since then we've become great friends with Andy and often go to him for advice about anything coffee related. The coffee at Press is 'bangin' (one of Andy's favourite words) and we love how they are always experimenting with their sourcing and roasting. They also use electric vans to deliver their coffee across London (in metal tubs too) - so really are doing their best to minimise their impact on the environment.
Padah Lin, Myanmar
We taste speculoos biscuit, poached pear, and a white wine acidity.
In fact, this lot is composed of coffee from over 50 smallholder farmers, each of whom cultivates approximately 0.25-3 acres of land, with coffee plants intercropped with a variety of produce such as avocados, jackfruit, papaya, macadamia and djenkol beans. The different types of trees act as a buffer to the spread of leaf rust and provide much needed shade, for both the coffee and the families who welcome the shade around their homes.
We love this coffee on batch brew or Pourover!
