Brazil Yellow Bourbon Dark
It is thought that the Bourbon bean variety takes its name for a single coffee tree presented by the Dutch to King Louis XIV of France in 1713. Seedlings were later transported to the French Island of Bourbon, now called Reunion.
This Yellow Bourbon coffee grown on the Daterra Farm which consists of 216 micro farms, each with individual characteristics.
Daterra is a leader in sustainable production and innovation within the coffee industry and was the first farm is Brazil to become Rainforest Alliance Certified.
We roast this Brazil Yellow Bourbon Coffee dark to bring out its delectable smoothness and flavours of rich dark chocolate with blackcurrant and plum notes.
Kenya Estate is a bright, lively, AA quality coffee and is grown in the Nyeri region just 100 miles from the foot of Mount Kenya.
Kenyan coffee is well known for its vibrant acidity and crisp, fresh taste and Kenya Estate is no exception.
Grown by Acacias Members from six cooperative societies, the beans have been awarded the AA grade, which refers to their larger than normal bean size.
Green coffee beans are graded through cascading layers of sieves, each decreasing in size, until the coffee is trapped on a grading tray. The AA grade makes this some of the finest coffee in the world.
Kenya Estate is a light roast, releasing a bright and lively acidity. It has delicious fruity notes of pineapple and red berries with hints of strawberries and cream at the finish.
Tanzania Kibo Chagga
While profiling this new crop of Tanzania Kibo Chagga, David Atkinson, our head roaster, along with David Higgins has experimented with many roast variations in order to find its best characteristics as we know how special this coffee is.
Ultimately they found it was at its best when medium roasted, therefore we have made the decision to only offer one roast rather than two like previously, as we believe that this highlights all the hard work that the farmers do without compromise.
Roasted medium, you will enjoy notes of Plum and raspberry with a soft red apple acidity and a smooth chocolate finish.
There's something undeniably captivating about the aroma of freshly brewed coffee.
In this blog post, we'll explore why fresh coffee reigns supreme over its counterparts and why the roasting date takes precedence over the best-before date on all of our H.R.Higgins coffee bags.
