Colombia San Sebastian

We have worked the farmers of San Sebastian for over a decade, and the quality of their beans continues to reach new levels. This stunning washed coffee opens up with a silky smooth butterscotch flavour then unleashes notes of juicy berries and a really unusual flourish - a gorgeous hint of elderflower.

We roast coffee fresh to order every Tuesday. Please order before 9am on Tuesday for delivery by the weekend.

Ingredients: 100% Arabica Coffee Beans. For maximum deliciousness, enjoy as soon as possible. If you have any left, just reseal the pack and keep in a cool, dark place. Roasted and packed in the UK by Taylors of Harrogate, HG2 7LD.

This is an exceptional Colombian coffee

We chose this lot to showcase the hallmarks of one of coffee’s most famous producing countries. Colombia is known for producing quality, and its iconic flavour notes of berry and caramel are there in abundance.

What's takes it to the next level is that elderflower. It's a subtle but consistent aroma - a background note that adds an extra dimension without dominating.

“ For me it's the elderflower twist which makes this coffee special. It really leapt out to all of us. ”

We like to visit our suppliers regularly

That's actually a lot more unusual in the tea and coffee industry than you might think - many simply buy from importers in the UK. We don't think it's quite so easy to understand the supply chain without taking the time to travel, see the farms and meet people face to face. Frank's last visit to San Sebastian was in 2017, where he used his Q Grader experience to grade some coffees at the local buying centre, as well as visiting some farms in La Plata.

This coffee peaks at a medium roast, which maintains some of its natural acidity while drawing out the ripe berry sweetness. Go too dark and you'd lose that subtle hint of elderflower.
