Stewarts was launched in 1984 by coffee enthusiast Stewart Falconer. Ahead of his time, Stewart started selling his coffee via mail order to friends, local businesses and eventually nationwide. Years later Stewart handed his company to a new team and it is now managed by a growing team of coffee experts including Mark, Nathan and Monika. Stewarts is based in Nottingham and has three coffee shops called Blend, with one of them based next door to their roastery in Sneinton Market. They are proud to be based in a thriving part of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter and love talking to customers about all things coffee. We met Mark from Stewarts at Notts Coffee Festival and couldn't believe the queue of people wanting to try his coffee.
This coffee is produced by Jorge Elías Rojas Vásquez, is a 33-year-old producer who has dedicated more than 20 years to the production, processing and marketing of specialty coffee. When he was just 13 years old the war in Colombia took his father away from him and he dropped out of school to manage the farm. The farm is located in Planadas-Tolima at 1,850 meters above sea level, a region that is difficult to access and at the time of the war was controlled by guerrillas such as the Farc. Now, many years on, Jorge was awarded 39th place at the last Cup of Excellence competition for his exceptional Geisha Honey bean. This coffee is made up of different bean varietals including the very high quality and highly regarded Geisha. Definitely one to try as a filter if you can!

Why we like it:
We love to hear about coffee farmers who have worked in coffee their whole life and have achieved so much, at a young age too! This coffee with the Geisha element makes for a really solid coffee.
