Roasting
All our speciality coffee is roasted at Mr Duffins family run roastery located in Staveley. We roast our coffee every week and dispatch as freshly roasted as possible. You can come and see us roasting in the coffee shop on a Tuesday!

What’s in the post?
In your order you will receive your chosen bag of speciality coffee which has been roasted beautifully to perfection.

Brewing our coffee
Our coffee works well in all brewing equipment. Once brewed to your preferred method, pour sit back and enjoy the flavours from the coffee farmers of the world.

Ethics
All our coffee is sourced from direct links to the coffee farms. In particular we like to  showcase our love of Peruvian coffee, from our friends at Freeman Trading, who trade with the tribal people of Peru. They pay a great price to them for growing better coffee. Like the small farmer the  small independent roasteries and cafes can offer people something that’s very special and not available at the supermarket.

About us,
We are  a family run business in the heart of the Lake District, in the centre of Staveley. Mr Duffin spends most days roasting the coffee beans to superbness whilst Mrs Duffin and Vanilla spend time perfecting their barista skills.

Origin Notes

Finca La Bolsa was bought by Jorge Vides in 1958, prior to this the land wasn't used for coffee production. Jorge has won a number of awards for his coffee production and his services to the region of Huehuetenango. La Bolsa sits between two mountains,which provide a very stable, humid microclimate. This combined with the limestone rich soils give the coffee a very unique profile, with a rich syrupy body and plenty of malic and citric acidity. Coffee is fermented for between 18 and 24 hrs and is then cleaned of mucilage, graded in channels and soaked overnight.
La Bolsa has a strong commitment to improving social welfare for it's workers and families and to ensuring healthy environmental practises. A school and accommodation are provided on site for all workers and their families. Inga trees are grown for shade and to fix nitrogen in the soil which is essential for plant and cherry growth. In addition there is an extensive composting operation in place to deal with waste using red worms.
