Acacia blend is our celebration of the Speciality Coffee World, a seasonal rotation of the cleanest and sweetest coffees.
With delicate, sweet, and fruity flavours, Acacia suits filter brewing, but also makes for a unique espresso. Our latest version of Acacia Blend showcases coffees from Ethiopia and Rwanda, bringing you flavours of Pear, Black Tea, and Bergamot Orange.
This delicate brew is one that will be particularly enjoyable for black coffee lovers.
The Ethiopian coffee is produced in the Kantite area within Aroresa District in the South of Sidamo. The washing station receives cherries from more than 5000 small producers surrounding it.
These specially selected cherries are treated in flotation tanks, separating ripe from under-ripe, ensuring the quality of this coffee, characterised by its sweet citrus notes.
We blend these Ethiopian beans with Rwandan coffee from Rwamatamu, a family-owned and run business founded in 2015 with the goal of reducing poverty by creating local job opportunities.
The estate has 20 hectares of coffee farmland where they grow both their own crop. On top of this, they also purchase cherries from affiliate co-operatives, local producer families, and smallholder farmers.
Rwamatamu sits atop rich volcanic soil. The estate is located near Lake Kivu, in a region that provides a tropical highland climate with regular rainfall. This makes the trees flourish, producing a dense, hard bean that is characterised by its gentle herbal notes and overall sweetness.
