Coffee Club

In addition to our wholesale coffees, every four to six weeks we run the Imbibe Coffee Club.

The idea behind the club is to offer our members two of the finest single origins from around the world freshly roasted for the price of a decentish bottle of wine (€18 – €25).

El Salvador Finca Helvetia

Producer: Mauricio Escalon

Location: Concepción de Ataco, Ahuachapan
Bean: Bourbon & Pacas
Process: Washed, red clay patio dried
Altitude: 1400m
Profile: Red fruit, raspberry, peach, full bodied

A coffee from a farm that was a winner of the Cup of Excellence in 2003, 2004, 2007, 2009 & 2012 speak to the quality of this one.

Nestled in the Ilamatepeq Mountain Range near the beautiful town of Ataco, Mauricio is extremely particular on the type and layout of shade trees which benefit the growing of his coffee. The pruning of the shade is timed to the optimum cycle for allowing light during the initial phase of the coffee cherry formation, slowing down and cooling the farm with enhanced shade later in the cycle leading to better development of the seed inside the cherry. The use of shade trees as windbreaks is particularly important as Helvetia is relatively coastal and can be subject to strong winds.

Processed on red clay patios at CAFESCAL mill near San Jose, like so many El Salvador coffees this one shows great versatility, with classy crisp top notes worth bringing out in filter as well as espresso.

Guatemala El Libano Typica

Producer: Herbert Perez

Location: Chimaltenango, Acatenago
Bean: Typica
Process: Washed, patio dried
Altitude: 1350m
Profile: Dark chocolate, fruit and nut, crisp apple, honey

El Libano is located in a traditional Guatemalan coffee region La Pampa, Acatenango, Chimaltenango. The owner Mr. Herbert Estuardo Perez Liquidano, is a third generation farmer and has looked after the farm formerly known as La Pampa since 1992.

Effectively a farm of two halves with the remainder of La Pampa owned by Herbert’s brother, the top area is up at 1350m, with a number of varietals including a small geisha lot, plus the rest of the farm including the drying patios in full view of Volcan Acatenango.

Imbued with a strong sense of responsibility to the local community where the farm remains a valued employer, Herbert has donated the land on which the local school sits, and provides modern accommodation for the workers.

An excellent farm and award winning & dedicated producer.

Kaleidoscope – 500 gram

Profile: Cherry, apple, caramel

This is my seasonal speciality blend which is always comprised of coffees that have appeared as single origins in the club. This is still priced at a point I believe offers exceptional value for speciality coffee. I drink this at home a lot both with V60 and aeropress and it really works which is something you don’t often get in a blend. Quite a stunner as espresso too.
