Folklore Blend Fact Sheet

Origin Location Climate and Humidity Soil Elevation Characteristics Notes
Honduras Central America Variable Climate. Tropical with cooler, more temperate weather in the mountains -temperatures ranging from 16°C to 20°C The north coast is very hot with rain throughout the year, and though the offshore breezes temper the climate, the sun is very strong. Farmers can struggle with high humidity which makes it hard to dry processed beans and can lead to spoilage. The dark rich soil of the rainforest is loaded with nutrients from the naturally decaying vegetation that grows below and above the coffee 2,300-6,560 (graded accordingly) Good, soft, useful for blending and as a single origin  
Brazil South America Consistent Temperature, moderate sunshine and rain   3,000 Low Altitude – less acidity, smooth, sweet Many variations but generally low in acidity, soft and mild.  Develops exceptional bittersweet and chocolate roast tastes.

 

 
Ethiopia East Africa All display the wine- and fruit-toned acidity characteristic of Africa and Arabia coffees   High Altitude Very unusual, rich, fruity, winey, gamey  
Vietnam Asia Bold, strong flavour. No variety of flavour     Good flavour, strong, grain and peanut Robusta

This coffee is made up of beans that have been processed with the following two methods:

WASHED (WET)

This process results in a coffee that is cleaner, brighter, and fruitier. During the wet method of coffee processing, the fruit covering the seeds/beans is removed before they are dried. This method has helped to preserve the Gooseberry, Nut, grain and citrus flavours in this coffee.

NATURAL (dry)

This traditional method of processing coffee beans helps to add a heavier mouth feel, a level of sweetness and greater complexity. This is responsible for giving body and some sweetness to this coffee.

 

Roast

The Folklore blend is roasted light medium. The coffee has a medium body, medium pleasant acidity. The roasting method preserves the varietal character of the beans including:

  • Gooseberry, high acidity and gamey flavours within the Ethiopian beans
  • The soft balanced taste of Honduras
  • The low acidity and smooth taste of Brazilian beans
  • Peanut and grain taste of Vietnam beans

 

Tasting notes

Mild gooseberry acidity, smooth, mellow, grain, medium body.
