The ‘Community Blend’ includes a blend of natural and fermented coffees from DBarbosa Family Farm, in the Cerrado Mineiro region in Brazil.
We were over the moon that it was awarded 2 x 2 stars at the 2019 Great Taste Awards held by the Guild of Fine Foods. Which means the judges thought that it was an ‘Outstanding’ Product.
Only 38% of products got any award this year and only 10% got awarded 2 stars so this is an amazing!
We entered this coffee in both the espresso and filter category with a slightly different roast style and blend ratio and it won a 2 star in both!! So you can be sure that whatever method you’re brewing this for it’ll taste great!
You can also been sure this is a quality product from Farm to Cup – The Barbosa Family prides themselves with a history of great farming and coffee processing and with the help of GE imports in Acton they been bring their amazing green coffee to top roasters in the UK for the last few years.
What the expert judges said:
“Lovely intensity to this sweet, nutty espresso. Judges love the malty depth and the clean lingering finish.”
“A mellow easy-drinking coffee with a good mouthfeel and a good balance of sweetness and nuttiness, finishing with an orange citrus note . Well-balanced, well-crafted all-rounder.”
