ABOUT THIS BLEND
Sinfonia, Brazil - Grown in the famous Mantiqueira de Minas region of southern Brazil, we sourced this coffee to bring both body and sweetness to the blend. When roasting Sinfonia we use a gentle, yet extended development time to accentuate its creaminess and chocolate notes. Comprising 50% of the blend it is very much the backbone of Rose Street.
Sierra Madre, Guatemala - We sourced this delicious coffee from the mountainous and remote Huehuetenango region of Guatemala, known for producing coffees with clean citrus and caramel notes – as such we have a shorter, more aggressive roast profile for Sierra Madre to help provide clarity to its citric acidity that it gives the blend.
Mzuri, Tanzania - This is a fantastic example of the high-quality specialty coffee being produced in Tanzania. We roast this coffee gently to soften its acidity and sweeten the red fruit qualities that it imparts on the blend, tying together the other components wonderfully.
