SEND Coffee, standing for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, is a non-profit supporting young adults between the ages of 18-25 into employment in the specialty coffee industry (and beyond). The profits of every bag (or cup!) of coffee sold goes towards funding this dedicated barista programme.
From the experimental producers of Cafe Granja La Esperanza, this Mandela cultivar lot is the fascinating result of multiple variety crosses, created in collaboration with the Colombian Coffee Research Centre. After meticulously monitored controlled-ferment natural processing, the resulting cup is delicious and complex with a tropical acidity.
Best without milk, taste notes include spiced rum, figs and pineapple.
