Roaster notes

"This single origin from Colombia - Rubén Ortega - is named after the representative of Asociación Sembradores de Vida. We have been working and growing our relationship with Sembradores de Vida for 3 years now, which allows us to look at more unique processing types, such as this micro lot, produced on Rubén’s farm. Rubén waited for the coffee to ripen evenly in the farm, until almost over-ripe at 35 days; after harvesting, it fermented for 14-16 hours, was depulped, before being left without water for 24 hours in a fermentation tank. The coffee was then washed twice before being dried over 10-12 days. The experimental processing involved in this lot has resulted in a deeper flavour profile than the traditionally processed lot. Dried and tropical fruit notes like raisin and papaya replace the crisp apple notes of the washed lot, and are cradled in a delightfully sticky, butterscotch-like mouthfeel and sweetness, and lead into an aftertaste of Brazil nuts, hazelnuts and fudge."

Redemption Roasters live up to their name. As the world's first prison based coffee roastery, they're committed to using coffee to help reduce reoffending in the UK. Their mission: they believe great coffee can come from people and places you wouldn't expect. At their roastery HQ in HMP The Mount in London, they train offenders in coffee industry skills with the aim of reducing reoffending in the UK. The coffee they work with is also exceptional: seasonal speciality only, sourced ethically. Each coffee they roast has a strong story too: from collectives working together to negotiate a fair price, to female-only growers challenging gender inequality. They partner with producers who are working hard to make a difference in their communities. The end result is a brew that’s helping raising the bar for all involved.
