This is the Small Batch espresso blend.
A combination of our favourite in season coffees put together to create sweet balanced espresso, with or without milk.
Served Black: Apple, plum, melon, brown sugar
With milk: Sweet, malted milk, macadamia butter
Components are frequently rotated to ensure broad consistency of the taste profile, cycling through direct purchases from the same producers who also make up our favourite featured “single” coffee products. Early June Candyman features the following components:
• Los Guacharos producers, Jose Uribe Lasso and Luz Dari Polo [Huila, Colombia].
• Tolima producers Jorge Rojas, Jose Elmer and Manuel Dagua [Tolima, Colombia].
• Kenyan microlot from Aguthi Farmers Cooperative Society [Nyeri, Kenya].
It’s important to us that blends comprise quality ingredients that are proudly identified and no less wholesomely purchased. Candyman is largely made up of neighbours or community blends that we build ourselves with coffees that, while super sweet, clean and well processed, do not possess the distinguishing characteristics (or volume sufficiency) that enable us to feature them on their own.
Los Guacheros and Tolima producers above have received between $1,250,000 and $1,350,000 per carga for these coffees, purchased in November 2018 or March 2019, against the prevailing market price of between $710,000 and $748,000 pesos per carga and the Fairtrade (TM) price of $755,000 to $795,000 pesos per carga.
The Aguthi Farmer’s Cooperative Society received US $3.40 per pound.
