About Colombia Wush Wush Coffee (#015)

About Clifton RoastersFounded by James Fisher in 2001, Clifton Coffee Company began its life servicing espresso machinery in the independent businesses of Bristol. As the reputation for service grew, so too did the demand for supply of coffee and equipment and so, just a couple of years later, when joined by Ed Buston, Clifton Coffee began wholesaling roasted coffees to the surrounding area, backed up with relatively unknown at the time ‘barista training’ to support its wholesale customers. As the roasters grew, a few key Bristol-based multi-site customers joined us – all of which they are still proud to serve today, 23 years later.

In 2023, Clifton became a certified B Corporation. B Corps are for-profit companies who share a global vision of a sustainable and inclusive economy. It’s the only certification that measures a company’s entire social and environmental performance and they are proud to commit to prioritising people and planet before profit.

Coffee InformationClifton's Unparalleled series is all about the most complex, rare and unique coffees they can find. Clifton want to make these coffees as accessible as possible and showcase what is possible in speciality coffee.

Deiro Garcia (the owner of Lord Voldemort Farm) is known to be one of the most innovative producers from the Huila region. He previously studied microbiology and focuses on extended fermentations. Through testing he has learned that certain natural yeast strains can produce a distinctive fermentation and influence the coffees taste profile dramatically. For this unique lot he has isolated yeasts from local yellow fruits and passionfruit. He says that this process accelerates fermentation and enhances the natural taste of the WUSH WUSH varietal without overshadowing it.

Wush Wush is a rare varietal of the coffee plant that comes originally from Ethiopia and is named after the region it originated from, “Wushwush”. The coffee trees themselves producing a small yield. Because these trees have such a small yield, the final product is a highly cared for and sought after, particularly known for its complex and standout flavours.

Coffee Tasting Experience Booklets
Top 1% Of Speciality Coffees, Delivered 'Competition', 'Limited Edition', 'Micro-lots', 'Premium Variety', all are words used to describe the very best of speciality coffees, and through GUSTATORY Stories you are able to try the world's very best top 1% of speciality coffees. Whilst GUSTATORY's speciality coffee subscriptions consistently deliver the very top 5% of the world's best quality coffees, our limited edition Stories go one further and offers a coffee tasting experience with one-off special guest coffees. How It Works Given the nature of GUSTATORY Stories, each special guest coffee curation will vary in retail price depending on many coffee related factors, varying between £20-100 RRP. Due to this fluctuation between each coffee feature, every curation is made available by special announcement(s) throughout the month(s), each with a limited timeframe to purchase. No subscription, only limited one-off purchases. Limited Edition & Price Savings Each curated special guest coffee will be available in limited quantities with a limited cap on customer numbers. Similar to a GUSTATORY coffee subscription, each curation will also provide you with savings on the RRP as well as extra savings by way of us paying the high costs of international shipping and import duties that you'd otherwise pay if shopping direct (when the speciality roasters are international). Coffee Tasting Experience Booklets Complementing each, we also provide all accompanying media and information leaflets as supplied by the speciality roaster, if any, as well as a GUSTATORY Stories coffee tasting experience booklet that you may use many times over to make record of your brewing techniques, opinions on taste(s) and overall results. Experiment with your brewing and see if your coffee tasting experience changes over time. Rest Period We always recommend that coffees are 'rested' between their roast date and first consumption to allow the coffee to 'degas', making brewing easier and your cup tastier. Such a 'rest period' will take place during your coffee's journey from it's speciality roaster to you, and so, whether our curated special guest coffee roaster is located in London, Edinburgh, Budapest or Copenhagen, even New York or California, your delivered coffee will be ready to be enjoyed.

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID and the cost-of-living crisis brings, many are tightening the purse strings and choosing cheaper alternatives. However...For more: Comunicaffe International
...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable coffee subscription packages. It also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All coffees are roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly subscription delivery schedules.
