The World Economic Forum announced that a trillion trees needed to be planted by 2030 to help the mitigate the causes of climate change. With your help, this is how we hope solve it.
This Brazilian coffee was sourced from Daterra with whom we've launched The Roas-tree Club, a sustainability initiative that promises to plant and maintain 1 tree for the next decade, for every 20kg of coffee we have bought from them. Our aim is to plant at least 20,000 but the sky is the limit.
Daterra is also a carbon-negative coffee producer, and have been kind enough to pass on the offset to us with every lot of coffee bought, meaning we are also offsetting our carbon footprint too.
About Monte Cristo Espresso
Also known as "Cerrado Natural", this process means that cherries were left on the trees for a longer time, allowing them to go through the full maturation process and dry while still attached to the branch. This processing technique is only possible if the weather is very dry and stable during harvest - in fact, in many regions, allowing coffee to dry on tree could be a big problem: the excess moisture can develop fungus and other microorganisms. Because of Cerrados’ unique traits, this process is possible - which is great, because it brings very positive attributes to the cup: tree-dried naturals usually show heavy body and extra-intense sweetness.
This is one of the most versatile coffees, as such Monte Cristo is a fine representative of the best of the traditional Cerrado style: notes of chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. As a single-origin, it makes a syrupy espresso.
