El Salvador Girl Crush House Espresso Coffee
Girl Crush is our current coffee crush for espresso-based drinks, consider it the house espresso from the Girls Who Grind Coffee Clubhouse. Sometimes single-origin, sometimes a blend but always from incredible female producers and consistently delivering a perfectly balanced and full-bodied cup.

A medium roast profile that creates a superb all-rounder that is sweet and silky smooth with subtle acidity making it an absolute dreamboat in both black and milk-based drinks with very little faff required to really bring her full flavour profile to light. We promise she'll be a crowd-pleaser, just like Lizzo.

The incredible Boza Sisters of Finca San Antonio Amatepec are ambitious change-makers looking to carve a path for themselves and the next generation of coffee producers.

With a focus on shade-grown specialty coffee production through sustainable methods and a continued focus on a commitment to the care of the environment and the development of the local community. The farm has been certified by the Rainforest Alliance and holds a rating of 95.75% on average!

The three young sisters: Alexandra, Daniella, and Karla (in order from eldest to youngest), grew up going to the farm every other weekend but were not really involved with the day-to-day activities. Part of this, they believe, had to do with their gender.

Women are not generally involved in leading a farm so were not ever taught how to do so. Since the 1970s, Finca San Antonio Amatepec was run solely by their father, Carlos. However with time, and as their father aged, realising there was not going to be a son/man to take over the farm after him, he agreed for the sisters to become more involved. They realised that they would have to split the work with their father and have become increasingly involved over the last few years.

They oversaw the new implementations of different Rainforest Alliance strategies, looked after the harvest, and managed more of the marketing and relationship building with buyers. Most importantly, they finally took the necessary steps to process their coffee independently.

They believe that this has been the most important change for their farm in the last few years - and if it were not for their encouragement and support their father would have never taken the jump as this is a very risky but important move for coffee producers to make.

Karla, the youngest of the 3 sisters, is one of the recipients of the 2019-2021 leadership equity and diversity (lead) scholarship program. Lead is aimed at increasing diversity of leadership within the global coffee community by enabling access to professional development resources to people from underrepresented or marginalised communities. We are super proud of Karla and the amazing leader she is becoming within the coffee industry!

We are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to build a strong business partnership with the Boza sisters over the past four years.

Sisters are doin’ it for themselves!

But in the end, I’m so so so so so so happy it’s finally there! I’m sure it’s felt almost impossible for a lot of other people as well, so the fact it’s finally there and hopefully in time for the holidays, makes me really happy!”

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

...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 options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
