    In the words of the Gibson Brothers , “quiero bailar la salsa… the first time I saw you / I knew it was love”

    So too, do we dance to this rather delectable coffee. Our very first venture to the northern Caribbean. This coffee benefits from a unique micro-climate and mixed planting with indigenous trees to minimise plant disease. As result we get pest-free very clean green beans to roast and the end result is a quality cup.

    An intensive, powerful cup with chocolate notes and a hint of spice and lemon make this perfect for espresso or stove top brewing.

    But don’t take my word for it…here’s what The Gibsters have to say on the matter!

    Rin recommends: a pour-over brew method to highlight the subtleties of this incredible single origin. Perfect for Stove Top / Espresso
