Uncommon Ground

The Roaster

Uncommon Ground Coffee Roastery is an independent, family owned and operated, speciality coffee bar situated in Cardiff’s historical Royal Arcade. It is owned and run by two local brothers, Paul and Ian Hayman, who have devoted their passion for coffee into roasting and serving the finest, freshest, and expertly prepared coffee to the people of Cardiff since opening in March of 2015. One of three commercial roasters in South Wales, Uncommon Ground are able to source, roast, cup and develop flavour profiles for new coffee, before directly introducing new products to friends and customers in their busy city centre coffee bar.

The Coffee

This organic washed coffee comes from a group of producers located in the San Fernando area of Cusco in Peru. This micro-lot coffee coffee is produced on small hold farms and delivered for processing at the Incahuasi co-operative.  Each farm is only about 1.5 hectares in size, so they don't have their own processing facility and instead deliver their freshly harvested cherry to the washing station for processing.  At the washing station the coffee is washed and dried naturally in the sun. This coffee has a very clean mouth feel and is best enjoyed as a filter brew.

Why we like it:

This coffee is organic certified and was grown and harvested by small holder farmers - we know how much work it is for farmers in small holder farms like these to be organic certified, and we also love the citrusy notes!
