As the seasons change, so does our TEAMWORK espresso, highlighting the very best single origin coffees throughout the year. We’re looking for coffees that are balanced and sweet, delicious in milk, and with enough complexity to be enjoyed straight up.
This is our first year featuring a Guatemalan coffee for Teamwork Espresso, and this particular lot is from one of our favourite producing regions - Huehuetenango! Picked in March-April this year, this is a single farmer lot, made up of 100% Caturra variety. Expect an espresso that's vibrant and sweet, with deep plummy notes that pairs with milk beautifully.
Today, nearly half of coffee production comes from countries predicted to lose more than 60% of land suitable for growing coffee by 2050. As temperatures rise and extreme weather becomes more frequent, coffee farming is becoming increasingly difficult and less profitable for many producers across the globe. World Coffee Research is a non-profit organisation providing farmers with the tools, knowledge, and plants necessary to adapt in a changing climate. Together with our importing partners Caravela, we are donating €0.50 from every Kg of TEAMWORK Seasonal Espresso to support their work.
