Last year we ran a successful initiative to take money from the sale of this luxury product to help some of the most needy people on the planet. This year, we've tweaked the deal so that you'll pay a little more for the coffee than if you buy it as the standard bag from our store. We've added £1 to the standard price, and we'll be matching that so that £2 from every 250g bag will go to charity.
The two of us have watched events unfold in the Middle East, and we share in the disgust, fear, and hopelessness that is being felt across the world because of the plight of the Palestinian people.
Our small gesture is that we offer this coffee for sale with the promise that £2.00 from every 250g bag of this coffee will go to a charity that will aid and assist the huge numbers of displaced, injured and bereaved people of Palestine. We will rotate the offering every month or so from our range of single origin coffees. Nothing is different, except that when you choose to buy this you choose to do A Good Thing for a population that desperately needs it. We hope you'll understand that no discount codes work for this particular coffee.
The money that we collect will be paid to the Ummah Welfare Trust every month. We have chosen that charity because of it's 100% donations policy, which means that this money won't be wasted on admin.
If you choose to buy this, thank you. And now, a little reminder about the coffee this month:
Bom Jesus (Brazil)
Tasting Notes: Chocolate, demerara sugar, red berries
Suitable for: Espresso and Filter (Medium Roast)
SCA Score: 85
We're really proud to tick off one of our big goals when we started roasting, because this is our first direct trade coffee, courtesy of Calum Maciel Brough of Cals Coffee.
Fazenda Bom Jesus is located in Cristais Paulistas in the Alta Mogiana Region. Producers Gabriel and Flavia Lancha Oliveira ensure that they support the social and economic development of the local community. Your purchase of this coffee directly supports those initiatives.
This is coffee is a medium roast. You're going to get milk chocolate and demerara sugar. It makes a classic Brazilian espresso that we love. It cuts through milk wonderfully and reminds of high quality milk chocolate, and it will give you shot after shot of enjoyment.
When we first listed this coffee we said it was espresso through and through, but we were wrong. It's a brilliant easy-drinker of a filter coffee, too. One of our most frequent customers recently tagged us on Instagram and said it might well be the best cup he's ever had. High praise indeed! Try it for yourself and let us know what you think.
