Wood St Coffee is an independent specialty coffee roasters based in Walthamstow, East London. They started their journey in the summer of 2013, starting out as a weekly pop up at Wood Street Market (hence the name).
By 2014, their popularity had grown enough to open a coffee shop where coffee lovers flood for their coffee fix. Dogs are also, very, welcome!
Wood Street Coffee roasters ethically source their coffee through a partnership of importers and working directly with farmers. They only source single origin coffees which are roasted in small batches to bring out the best from each process, varietal and region.
We absolutely love the passion that the Wood Street team have for coffee and excited to feature them this week with two blends:
Inza, Cauca, Colombia
NOTES: Milk Choc, Red Apple, Sugarcane Sweetness
VARIETAL: Typica & Caturra
ALTITUDE: 1700-2000 MASL
Inzá is a municipality located in a sacred valley that sits below the elevated mountains that separate Huila and Cauca. More than 14 centuries of history and tradition of native indigenous tribes make Inzá ones of Colombia’s richest archaeological treasures, home to the archeological park of Tierradentro. These indigenous cultures chose Inza as their home because it is a place where many rivers converge, making this territory a fertile and magical place.
San Jose De Lourdes, Peru
NOTES: Lemon Sherbet
VARIETAL: Typica, Bourbon, Caturra
ALTITUDE: 1700-1900 MASL
As an origin, Peru has all the conditions necessary to produce world-class coffee: concentrated volumes of coffee growing at and above 1700 MASL, a prominence of Typica, Bourbon, and Caturra, and a movement among the producing population, away from subsidence-farming, and into seeing quality coffee production as a viable business. As more incentive for the production of coffee with high cup scores are put in place, we hope to see the challenges quickly disappear as Peru moves full-stride into the specialty coffee world.
