In 2015, Gareth met Tim Choi through a mutual friend. Tim had begun his roasting career at Modern Standard, moving on to Caravan and Grind, before eventually switching to green coffee sales and logistics for Caravela. With a shared enthusiasm for speciality coffee, the pair joined forces and began roasting together in 2018.
Brazilian coffee has historically been viewed as a blending component with other origins but has diverse flavour profiles, which makes it ideal for a single origin roasts too. Caixa de Frutas (Fruit Box) is a blend of prominent Brazilian varieties from 12 producers in Minas Gerais. Volcafe have worked with their exporting partner, Cocatrel, to create this regional blend with fruitiness in mind. Producers have delivered coffee to be processed at Carmo de Cachoeira, where the cherries are fermented in static boxes, hence the name. This method of natural processing imparts a lot of fruit on the coffee and you will notice this bursts with citrus acidity when black, which mellows out with milk to leave a lingering chocolatey and nutty aftertaste.
