Special BRU Blend Coffee

Caravan have been crafting mighty fine craft coffee since 2010! This is their 10th birthday Special Bru, which is a testament to their epic 10-year journey sourcing delicious, sustainable and ethical coffees from around the world. To celebrate 10 years of Caravan Coffee Roasters, they’ve hidden ten tin tickets in our Special Bru bags − find one and you’ll win free coffee for a year!

The Panama component comes from Jamison Savage, the renowned proprietor of Finca Deborah, where CCR has sourced many of Caravans highest scoring coffees throughout the years. This lot is a blend of Caturra and Catuaí, processed separately as varietal specific lots and blended together here to highlight the candied nut and lemon notes we find in Version 43.

The Rwandan component is a new relationship for CCR, brought over by Caravans Head of Coffee from her previous position working with new and up-and-coming cooperatives in East Africa. Abateraninkunga ba Sholi – or just ‘Sholi’ – is a small cooperative by African standards, with only 387 members, of which 157 are women. Located halfway between the Rwandan capital of Kigali and Lake Kivu to the west, Sholi members grow coffee upwards of 2000 meters above sea level, cultivating traditional Bourbon varietals, and processing their cherry at nearby collection points throughout the small district of Muhanga.

Together, these three varietals and two countries create a blend with loads of vibrant fruit notes – red plum, lemon candy, and black cherry, to name a few. Balancing out this acidity, from the Panama varietals we get notes of sweet roasted nuts and milk chocolate.

  • Flavours: Red Plum, Lemon Candy, Honey Roasted Nuts
  • Origin: Panama, Rwanda

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
