Joe, from 15Grams coffee roasters, is another fantastic example of a coffee lover who followed their dreams and landed in coffee. Much like ourselves!
Originally starting out as a photographer and realising that his passion was in coffee, Joe started roasting coffee in the evenings so that he could learn many different techniques. Fast forward to today and 15Grams are roasting on a 15kg Giesen and have opened up a shop in Greenwich, London.
15 Grams realise the impact ethical sourcing can have on the farmer's lives so only import from ethical traders and pay a keen interest in the story behind each blend. The A feature, Asmucafe for example, comes from an organization of female farmers and land-owners in Colombia. Their mission is to creative a collective of knowledge sharing and support so that everyone can learn and succeed from their country's rich plantations.
We're super excited to feature 15grams with two of their varieties:
Asmucafe stands for Assciación de Mujeres Agropecuarias de Urib, which is a group of female producers and land owners in El Tambo. This smooth Colombian coffee is made up of rich cocoa, chocolate and caramelised sugar flavours.
Huehuetenango is one of Guatemala’s three non-volcanic regions, also the highest and driest under cultivation, making it one of the best for coffee production. This delicious smooth coffee has a sweet caramel flavours, hints of berries and praline.
