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 coffee comes from a group of 15 quality focused producers from Gigante, Huila. This region is located between the Magdalena River and the eastern range of the Andes Mountains which provides unique microclimates for the production of fantastic coffees. Expect flavours of lemon, peach, brown sugar and caramel notes in milk.
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 Primavera, we are donating €0.50 from every Kg of TEAMWORK Seasonal Espresso to support their work.
