COFFEE PRICE INCREASE
The global price has rocketed in the past year, this along with high price of the US dollar, which coffee is traded, has resulted in the price of green coffee rising, in some cases, up to 40% more than we were paying at this time last year.
Sadly, we may also need to update prices further to this, in the light of the fast-moving energy crisis and other supply chain issues.
We can’t roast coffee without gas or electric!
Regretfully, from tomorrow 6th September we shall be increasing the cost of a 250g retail bag of coffee, across the board by 50p.
What won’t change is our commitment to quality. We will continue to buy the freshest crops, fully traceable from a reputable suppliers and farmers, many of whom I’ve met over the 33 years we been in business.
Hard as it is right now, I hope you understand our situation and continue to keep your custom with the most established coffee roaster in the North East of Scotland.
Thank you, Ian
NEW COFFEE OF THE MOMENT
COSTA RICA 'TARRAZU' RED HONEY
Tasting notes: This lovely coffee features notes of candyfloss, caramel, black tea and peach. Sweet and mild with good body.
Process: Red Honey
The 'Honey Process' is a method of processing coffee cherries where the skin and pulp are removed. Honey processed coffees are less acidic, sweeter and have a fuller body than wet processed ones. The coffee is hand-picked and then pulped mechanically, leaving 70% of the mucilage on the bean; the cherry is agitated just enough to ensure even drying without any over fermentation.
NEW COFFEE TRILOGY
New Trilogy is here! We have a lovely selection of natural, washed and red honey process coffees from South America. Brazil Fazenda Aracaçu, Nicaragua Miel De La Bastilla and Bolivia Cafe Femenino are wonderful examples of the variety of delicious coffees South America has to offer.
