Seasonal Espresso Blend
- Cherry sweetness
- Red apple
- Caramel finish
This espresso is made up of two spectacular washed process coffees. 60% is the sweet and creamy Santa Clara from Antigua Guatemala. Market Lane have worked with producer Ricardo Zelaya since they first opened in 2009. He is a very progressive producer, who is continually trialling new coffee varieties and looking for ways to maximise the use of his 90-hectare farm, while ensuring that his farming and processing practices are as sustainable as possible.
40% of the blend is the clean and balanced Wahundura, produced by the Kamachiria Farmer’s Cooperative Society in Central Kenya. Founded in 1972, Kamachiria has 5600 members – most of them second-generation co-op members who inherited their farms from their parents.
