Rare coffees. We've all heard mumblings of these but what truly defines a rare coffee? For the connoisseurs amongst us, it can be defined by exclusive micro lots, competition coffees or perhaps those coffees that have achieved the prestigious Cup of Excellence certification. In layman's terms, the translation is quite simply those coffees that provide you with that ‘Wow, I’m only drinking this for the rest of my life’ factor. We’re talking about those exquisite and mythical coffees that make you want to frolic in an unspoilt meadow, whilst losing yourself to the sweet melodies of Katherine Jenkins - feel like we may have overshared here so lets move swiftly on.

Due to the nature of these coffees, the bag sizes will vary so you may find that these are in smaller denominations than the coffees you'll see in our other selections. Fear not though as we recommend using this as an indication as to how these coffees should be enjoyed – less frequently and when you have the time to fully appreciate them. On that note, we'd also recommend investing in the right equipment and familiarising yourself with our brew guides to ensure you are able to truly bring these coffees to life.

The coffee industry is in crisis. Informed purchases are needed

Issue: Coffee prices are in crisis, which threatens the very existence of many coffee producers, and so, the future of coffee globally.For more: GUSTATORY on Sky News Radio (Interview)Our Answer: Informed purchasing decisions are advised, from the independent coffee roasters featured here on the GUSTATORY marketplace. Through direct-to-source relationships, roasters are able to protect their supply chains from the effects of price volatility as they form special relationships with producers. These relationships also protect producers as roasters often commit to fixed term and fixed price contracts, which give producers certainty. This certainty is what producers need in order to not only survive but thrive, committing to sustainable practices and addressing other global problems that are threatening the industry such as climate change.

Make their commitment your commitment. Support independent coffee roasters and you’ll be making a difference before you even have your first cup of coffee.
