Where It Grows

Where It Grows

Soil, altitude, temperature and rainfall all affect flavour. Well grown, cleanly harvested and properly roasted coffee lets you taste regional flavours in the cup. 

Central America: Expect a well balanced cup with a good mixture of smooth sweetness and some tart, fruity acidity.  Some spice and cocoa notes may be present. Snark offerings: Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica.

South America: These coffees are similar to the Centrals; they are light and mild.  There is a mellow acidity and strong caramel sweetness, with a hint of nutty undertones. Snark offerings: Peru

Asia: Tasting notes are deep and dark.  There is a hint of meaty earthiness with an aromatic spiciness.  Roasted to a medium+ there are smoky and toasted flavours with a long lasting finish that recalls very dark, unsweetened cocoa.  Snark offerings: Sumatra

Africa: These coffees are quite complex, offering distinctive wine and fruit tones with a fragrant floral aroma.  Snark offerings: Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania.
