About this coffee
Leonel Hartwig gets its name from the producer of this coffee, Leonel, who runs the farm with his wife Jessica and two daughters. Leonel has been constantly re-investing back into his farm and its processes, more recently purchasing a de-pulper allowing him more control over the process, resulting in a much higher quality coffee. Needless to say, this coffee received huge praise from our tasting panel this month and we’re particularly excited to be featuring it this month.
Our Roasting Partner, Cartwheel
Cartwheel is an independent coffee roastery and has a number of cafes in Nottingham, England. With a focus on traceable, high quality coffee, Cartwheel is focused on extracting and preserving the flavours that are unique to each farm. This ethos extends to its naming process, naming each coffee it sells after the producer in honour of their efforts and the direct relationship Cartwheel has generated with them. We’re stoked to be partnering with Cartwheel this month to bring you two delicious single origins from Colombia & Brazil.
We recommend whole bean as generally, whole beans will stay fresher for longer and give you the flexibility to grind your beans to suit different brewing methods.
If you have an Espresso Machine, we recommend you grind your own coffee to suit your particular machine. However, we do offer a ground bean option for Espresso, and if you select this option we will do our best to get it right but there are no guarantees as it's a fine balance.
If you select ground coffee for Filter, beans will be ground medium which will be suitable for most at-home brewing methods e.g. Plunger, AeroPress, Chemex, Drippers etc.
