The Roasters’ Cup is the epitome of the roasters’ craft: sourced from some of the world’s most interesting coffee plantations and roasted at our Auckland and Wellington cafes in small-batch roasters. These coffees are roasted light to medium by our roasters to heighten the unique and special characteristics that the varietal and location bring.
Our Roasters’ Cup for the month of August is the Java Flores Bajawa .
From Mt Lobobutu, Bajawa, Flores, an island that is part of Indonesia, this coffee brings sweet dry spices when ground and mild tobacco, spice and maple syrup when steeped. Herbaceous with white pepper and black currant sweetness and a light herb and sparkling black currant finish. The medium acidity is crisp light and dry with a rounded lightly honeyed body. An interesting coffee that should taste great whatever brew method.
