April’s Guest Filter Coffee

From our Urban Coffee HQ

Photo 19-11-2013 17 11 51For this month’s guest filter coffee we’re moving to South America with a Finca El Cucho from Colombia.

From the Narino department in the southern Andes mountain range in south-west Colombia, this Cup of Excellence selected coffee was grown on Finca El Cucho by Emilio Bastidas Yela.

Emilio was introduced to coffee cultivation as a ten-year-old boy when his family moved to a coffee farm in Chinchal. When Emilio turned 22 he was given a small parcel of land by his father to grow his own crop and in a short period of time his success in coffee farming allowed him to buy more and more parcels to build El Cucho. Emilio set to work honing his craft and developing the quality of his crop, creating new varieties and new pruning techniques. All of which have led to a spectacular cup of coffee!

This year marks Emilio’s first year competing in Cup of Excellence where he has achieved 21st place in Colombia. C.O.E was established as an organisation to reward excellence in coffee cultivation. Local and international judges blindly assess hundreds of coffees rating them using an internationally agreed metric. High rankings like Emilio’s can give a farmer the exposure to buyers and coffee drinkers that make a real difference to the farm.

It’s a clean cup with a round silky body with notes of sweet wild berries and delicate rosehip. Pop into any of our emporiums now to try it either as a V60 or Aeropress!

New Beers @ #CS!

From our Church Street Emporium

Spring is very nearly here and we’ve done a bit of spring cleaning here at CS! A fresh lovely range of bottled bevvies to rev up your taste buds!!

unnamedWe are more than pleased to have Vedett IPA in the chiller, along with the rest of the range Extra White and Extra Blonde! The inventors of Indian Pale Ale may have originally added extra hops to help it survive the long voyage to India, but Vedett just do it for the taste! Every drop as thirst-quenching as the last, Vedett IPA offers an explosion of flavoursome bitterness that increases with intensity towards the finish, tempered by an unparalleled velvety smoothness resulting in a very accessible taste. Fresh, fruity and floral notes give way to touches of caramel sweetness, while its superb, lingering aftertaste continues to tantalise the tastebuds long after.

Another bostin’ arrival is ‘The Full Nelson’! This ‘Maori Pale Ale’ came together after months of experimentation with a very unique hop – Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand. Strong grape flavours are complemented by the sweet Munich malt, making this beer crisp and refreshing.

So if you’re after a post-work beverage or are just stopping by, pop in try these beauts.
